You'll have to send them to Tibet to drive out Colonel Younghusband.  Very nice work!

He was supposed to be a dun. The wash didn't darken it enough.  ::)

A henna-dyed horse perhaps? :D

I have somewhere a true story (in an old "Uniformes" French magazine I think) about a North-African cavalry unit arriving in France in 1914, which was ordered to get rid of all its white horses because it was more difficult to conceal them at distance than brown or black horses.
An old Arab NCO was very unhappy with this order because he loved his horse. He said to his captain that he would cover the horse with henna to change its colour so he could keep the horse.
He did that, and ...the horse turned to a VERY shiny copper colour that could be seen miles away :'(

OOops I'm out of topic again  :-X

I like both armies. Actually, I think the toy soldier style of the second one is quite nice and effective with these figures, and I wonder why I spent so much time to paint mines "realistically" (see my post "Another chinese army").
