WIP: Tamsin's Equine Development Facility #7; WIP: Chumbondas

The horses: painted the tack on a few more strips of horses earlier this evening, before uploading the "Rum, Sodomy and the Lash" photos to my computer and then to Flickr. Here's a quick pic showing a few strips.

Tonight's strips take it to half of them done for this stage. I'm aiming to push myself to do all the remaining strips tomorrow evening.

The Chumbondas

I decided to make a start on these, getting the base colour for the fur done. I've used 6 different brown shades for this.

To maximise the variety of colourings, my intention is to use 4 different highlight colours (to be drybrushed on) and 4 different washes. At that point I'll have to sit down and decide about the detailing colours - weapons, shoulder guards, straps and bags/pouches. Given the limited variety of poses, I'll probably order some "Yeti Infantry" from Black Hat to create decently mixed squads.


  1. They're great looking figures Tamsin. Look forward to seeing the finished article.
