Hi guys

Just working on my first army and after a bit of advice :

1. Is it better to attach shields, pikes, horses + riders etc. before painting or after?

2. Will white undercoat work OK? I have tried black before, with a wash for shading and (under my untalented paintbrush) the colours came out a bit flat and washed out Confused I wondered if white + wash might be a better combo.

Any pointers gladly accepted.

Cheers
Steve

In my opinion .

Yup, do all clean up of flash , spear/weapon attatching first .

Riders I do separate from horses .

Shields some attatch first some don't.

White is fine ( I prefer it ) see the Ray Ashton painting post for some ideas , it's especially good for horses...
