Dawnrider Steeds Painting Schemes

I found the Dawnrider Steeds particularly useful – horses have always been a challenge to make them all look slightly different. I also really liked the Variant Ymetrica colors. They have a really neat look when it all comes together. I could see some of the same techniques being used for a variety of armies and color schemes.

That metallic blue technique is one I’m saving for another project!

Also, contrast paint is cheating at painting. But in a whole lot of good ways I think. If you need to make your horses look different just go with various natural-looking earth tones from the Contrast lines like the many browns they have.

Anyhow, you can always check out GW’s painting guides on their YouTube Page. So be sure to pop over there and check them out to stay up-to-date on all things painting related for Games Workshop.
