Austrians - ready to varnish

I just took a number of photos of the knights before varnishing. In the foreground you can see a simple chart I used to paint the decorative lances. The same colour combination I used to paint leather parts, such as saddles, scabbards, and harnesses. The chart served as a guide line as some did not look well with certain horse colours.

This command served well to test out some theories with regard to painting plate armour. The last command will certainly profit from all this experience and will take less time to paint.

After the Austrians, I have Hungarians and Wallachians to paint, these too are from Legio Heroica.
