Tanks a lot for the kind comments! Very Happy

Matt, the problem with my Vallejo paints is, that after a short time of frequent use their printed names and numbers vanish. I don´t really know the names any more, but I try to describe the colours:
The two very light horses are basecoloured with the leather brown used on the saddles, where you can see it´s original shade as the most highlighted.
The leather brown was mixed in steps with more and more white and layered.
The other three horses were basecoloured in black. Two of them were then mixed in steps with a chocolate brown as before. One of them (the lighter one) is brought up to the original colour (as the saddles with the leather brown). The other one´s belly is shaded with dark flesh in the black. I love that on living horses! Smile
The third one is dark terracotta mixed in the black, what brought her to look reddish. If I wanted it a bit more orange (what would be appropriate for a "fox"), I would have put some dark flesh in there, too, but I like it, as it is...

I didn´t play the cavalry yet - logically...but the system is great fun! Cowards, who dug in, are destined to lose and brave deeds are honoured by the rules. They include a system for collateral damage, too! If you throw an opponent onto another one, both will take damage. Built structures can be scrapped as well as enemy models, even if it is just to make a clear line of sight. And so on... I think, Privateer Press has regarded all aspects of what a wargame should include to make big fun games!
And I simply love the idea behind it all, that there are 10ton steampowered "robots" stomping through enemylines... Very Happy

The paper labels on most paint does get smeared with time. I have found that by putting a piece of clear tape (Scotch or other brands) over the labels, the labels will stay clean and readable. If you get paint on them, they will wipe off without messing up the paper label underneith

Good idea, indeed! But I don´t care about the names or numbers. I know exactly what colour I need, when I´m off to buy one... Wink

I think it's just sublime.

I am a real fan of your painting Michi. And those warmachine figures are really cool.
