I really hate painting horses. I am currently working my way through a cavalry unit. Even with photos of real horses to guide me, I just find them tedious.
On the upside, I got the Osprey on Pictish warriors. Lots of nice pictures including Pictish iconography.
I have also begun modelling a temple for my Picts. It is based on a Bronze Age temple found in a peat bog. It was part of the Bog People travelling exhibition. It should provide an interesting piece of scenery on the table.
