There are plenty of brands of paints available, what are your preferred ones?

Myself, I love Contrast and use plenty of GW paints.  I also use a selection of Miniature Paints by RPE, especially the white primer.  Unfortunately the range is small and nothing added since the KS last year.  Horses though are done with Coat d'arms

I use Vallejo for my primers and Foundry for all the painting proper.  I like the quality of their colours and the expansiveness of their range; I haven't yet developed the confidence to do a lot of mixing and shading for myself.  I find the pots good value and quantity for money.

I've never used Coat d'arms; what is their specific advantage for painting horses?

GW paints and couple of Scale 75 paints. The GW contrast paints I use only for glazing. There are a couple of good tutorials done by Darran Latham on youtube and by Duncan his own "Duncan painting academy". Both channels really make you a better painter.

They do colours specifically for horses.  I could experiment and find the right mix etc, but I have chestnut, dunn and grey from them.  They also do “flesh” in more than one shade.  I have a number of Moors for Crusaders to take on who are black and trying the oriental flesh with the next delivery of figures from footsore.

I use Citadel paints for flesh and bright colours and Army Painter for the browns and darker shades, the Army Painter range of shade inks I find useful too

I use a big mix of Valejo, Armypainter and Citadels, I mostly use Citadel contrasts, but have painted in that way using Valejo Airbrush paints for years before, then highlights/drybrush with Valejo Game/model colour and Amrypainter, dont paint to make best painted army anymore, just need things to look good on the battlefield and get it done 😀

for terrain I mainly use acryllic arts found cheap in the local "Søstrene Grene"
