I mail the castings to Stan Johansen at the same time, who paints them in whatever order he chooses. evil grin

I paint the rider's exposed flesh first. After that, I paint the entirety of the horse before I do anything else on the rider.
As a caveat, I paint 10mm, so it makes sense to do it in this way.

It depends … no, really, it does. But, more often than not, I undercoat the horse at a relatively early stage – generally before the rider, and generally in a different colour (white, mostly) …

In 6mm it's not an issue generally. In 6mm SF, it's even less of one.

I glue the riders to the horse.
I go by the old saw of painting from the skin out.

Kind of at the same time but I always prime/finish the horse first

I tend to paint any metal bits first, then the horse's flesh, then the rider and saddle, and then any remaining horse furniture like reins or textile barding.

The metal first because I drybrush it, but there's no particular thought about the rest, it's just a habit I've fallen into.
