Well I'm starting my winter project, 28mm Plains Wars.

First up is my pony herd

Awesome – thats alot of ponies to paint! I look forward to seeing the end result!

If the math in my head is correct that is over 150 ponies. Are those for your warriors to ride, or just a herd?

I have a bit over 150 Foundry and Old Glory mounted Indians, but my nice horses for just a herd around a village or loose horses being run off on a raid is probably less than 50.

I do have probably another 100 that are old true 25s that are not so red hot.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of your project.

I have to say that I like your style!!

That is an incredible amount.

Are you going to freehand the cutie marks, or go with transfers?

These will all have riders I have 50 others and 50 buffalo for herds

And there for a moment I thought someone was a little more ajar than I am. I only have 72 'ponies' in my herd – but none of them have riders. They are for the all important pony herds as part of a game. And I actually have maybe a couple of dozen others to add in meant for corrals and wild mustangs and the like. The 72 an be seen here still only in primer coat:

Might be a few other things to gawk at.

However, Razor gets the nod for doing it in 28 mm.

So, should I be relieved my pony herd is bigger? Or worried about my sanity? Well, more worried? : )

I do the wars in 15mm and even in a smaller scale I wouldn't do 150 ponies!
