Today I tried to get (among other things) the Galadrhim cavalry up to speed with the infantry I had been working on. My color scheme had changed a lot since I first started painting these. The robes were now a different color, and I had decided to go with NMM instead of metallics. There were a few reasons for this, which I will be covering in a different comparative post tomorrow.
In any event, I had to repaint everything except for the horses fur. The shaded basecoat technique was crucial in this process. These images show how they looked after I had added the glazing and shading:

This is a preview of tomorrow'a post, where I will be comparing the original color scheme to this, and where I will share some of the thought process.
