I wasn´t too pleased with the result of painting them as "ghosts" ( like I did with the infantry HERE ) but went for a "scruffy undead with colour" look. Takes longer but IMHO, Looks better....and, I can use them as rebellious scum types.
Also, the horses. I swopped the ones with caparisons from the light warriors set. In Total that means 8 nags in 2 poses but they are the heavy cavalry and the light cavalry having nags with caparisons seems odd to me.
The Things that make the bods (in this set )look undead are minimal..slightly skeletal arms, grimer looking faces and shabby clothing (torn chainmail) and are easily excused which makes them usefull as veterans.
I suppose it would be difficult, in this scale, to create an obvious undead look without going for Skeletons with armour.
The nags are a different case, especially the ones without caparisons, Boney faces, empty eye sockets, ribs and other bones showing.
Two nags without Caparisons needed to make up the 10 mounts needed for all the riders from the set. . The Flag I found online and printed out.
At some Point I will get some more of These nags. Fill any holes, add a tail and they would be fine for normal medievals.
