Severed Legs The final painting touch was the severed leg design on the  shield. I painted on the leg shape in AP-WP1118 - Uniform  Grey, and then dotted in a chainmail effect with AP-WP1117 -  Ash Grey and then AP-WP1102 - Matt White. Varnish Make sure all the paint on the model is thoroughly dry before  commencing varnishing. Gloss The models were then given a coat of Humbrol polyurethane  gloss varnish and set aside for 24 hours to dry completely. Be  careful not to let the varnish pool, especially under the horse  and on the feet. You don’t need a very thick coat of varnish. Matt Then they were given two coats of Anti-Shine Matt Varnish.  Be even more careful when painting on the matt varnish.  When applying the matt, brush it out well from any nooks and  crannies where it is likely to collect and pool.   Basing The base itself is a 40mm plastic SAGA hero’s base from  Renedra. I used superglue to stick the models in place,  blowing over them to prevent the glue whitening off on the  models and I also glued a rough stone or two from the garden
