Do you mount your guys on horses to paint or do you mount the guys after both are painted?

Mount after for my 15mm

For smaller – not sure it would matter to me

I always mount then paint!

I always mount then paint. That way you're gluing metal to metal rather than paint to paint.

Riders and horses painted separately for me.

Mount on horses to paint after horse is painted.

Mount and paint. I paint the rider first, then the horse.

Mount and paint for all scales. I have enough junk on my table already.
