I tried a new technique with this figure, using a three layer paint scheme on the horse's caprison and a two layer scheme on Abdallah's robe and headdress. To my eye, it turned out much better than I thought it would. I probably won't use it for "ordinary soldiers" but will probably use it again for senior officers. It makes them stand out a little better from the rank and file. The base will get a terrain treatment similar to the camelry unit's bases (see previous post) once I get the second cavalry unit painted and mounted.
