My first new blog post for about 5 years.

I have put some comparisons of different GW Contrast paints used to paint some 15mm horses on my blog, Dante's Wars. I hope it is ueful.

I actually enjoy painting horses thanks to Contrast Paints and Army Painter Speed Paints. One coat and done! Look great on the table too. Thanks for showing the colors thinned down.

I have to wholeheartedly agree with Perris0707!

Agreed! The Contrast Paints have done much to resolve my dread at painting horses

The army painter speed paints, can you show us some of your work?

I used to hate painting horses and now with contrasts I kind of enjoy it.

I will try the contrast paints first, adding templer black, wyldwood and one of the grays. Oh I've seen the speed paints in two different videos now. Great info guys.
