I need to do this in all the horses, so let's take a closer look in detail at the process. First I put a base of a dark brown, Chocolate Brown will do in this case.
On top of that, a layer of a lighter brown. English Uniform for example.
And on top of that, lighter areas of yellow.
Those yellow areas are now covered with gold metallic paint.
Highlighted with silver metallic paint.
And metallic medium for the highest light spots.
Once the golden edges are done, I paint the white and blue tiles. First, a simple basecoat of white and blue, careful not to mess with the recesses.
The key to the effect of the tiles is the outlining. Thin lines of nearly pure white on top of the white tiles and very light blue (Space Wolves Grey) on top of the blue tiles.
The process is pretty simple but it can be time consuming since we are painting a whole unit. So much work deserves another dose of "before" and "after"!
