Robin was using the gel to base up his 15mm sci-fi figures. I will see how I get on with it, so far so good. These large 80mmx60mm bases have a lot of wide open flat space to fill and this gel could be the ticket.

Below is reference that got me thinking about the whole thing in the first place. I fell in love with the look of these units on the Warfare miniatures web site. The League of Augsburg stuff is very inspiring, worth a look just for the eye candy.

Some daylight shots of the Black Uruks...unlike other Orcs, these guys don't shun the yellow face in the sky.
Figure from Essex Miniatures.

Here is the first and not really the best example of my horse 'Oil' batches. Still a nice effect though and the skin tones are very subtle which is perfect for horse flesh.
The best thing about painting horses like this I have found is that you clear all of your horse backlog in one fun filled go. I must have around thirty horses ready to go now. I found it really enjoyable painting them in this way, I have around five that didn't work for various reasons but these will be repainted using the fail safe browns.
The Chestnuts are probably my favourite so far as they are the most effective and realistic in colour. I will post more on this later.

The smell of the enamel took me straight back to painting D&D figures when I was 15, great stuff.
