[Archive] Zebra Rider

Tarrakk Blackhand:

Hi guys and girls!

Well, here’s the first Empire guy I finished painting for a friend of mine. He doesn’t know I painted his horse in Zebra stripes, so this should be a little surprise for him.

The tower in the background is one I made for a Warhammer Skirmish game called “Silence The Watchtower”.  You may remeber some posts of it from a while ago, but these are the first pics of it painted.

Enjoy the Pics!

Da Crusha:

looks pretty good Id use him as a characters


Great work on the Zebra he looks really good, but i now have an age old question for you is he black with white stripes or white with black stripes :smiley:

Hashut’s Blessing:

He’s pink with a coat on :wink:

Excellent job. Very well done, especially for avoiding making it look like he is uniformly striped.

Any tips for replication? Not sure I will, but always good to know :wink:

Tarrakk Blackhand:

Look at reference photos. In fact, paint right in front of your computer!


nice paintjob

your friend will be suprised,for sure

any special reason why you painted it like a zebra?or just for fun?

Tarrakk Blackhand:

Just fun. However, it does look better than the usual brown horse, don’t you think?


it looks good,and well painted

really like the look of the “horse”

maybe you can paint a whole unit like that and a darker skin color for the rider,with some invaders of the south background

Tarrakk Blackhand:

I was thinking of it.


I have some of the old elven steeds left over from m now defunct wood elf chariots, so I may use those to mak some Southlands marauder horse/DoW light cavalry on Zebras

Tarrakk Blackhand:

Kool! Would it be possible to get 6 slaves for the Zebra rider? I’d like to have an even 400 before the GH contest starts. :smiley: hopefully Hashut will reward me thusly! :smiley:


Ah Tarrakk, :smiley: tis not for one such as I to ponder the mystery of the slaves distribution system…

Tarrakk Blackhand:

It’s easy. You just click on my name and there’s a section that says “Donate Slaves” and then you type in 6 and send.


Oh young one, you have no idea. You still think you donate slaves through your own free will? Hashut controls all! :hashut

Tarrakk Blackhand:

LOL! …Give 'em up already! :smiley:

Excuses are for Hobgoblins! :smiley:


Great job on the stripes. It is an overall awesome model. Your friend will be proud.
