For thousands of years whenever man has gone to war the horse has been there with him. From the fearsome horseback raiders of the ancient world through chariot warfare, fighting knights and cavalry to the slaughter of gun horses in World War I and the transport of ammunition and equipment in WWII the horse has played a major role in human conflict.

In Warhorses Max Longhurst dispels the mystery of modeling horses and demonstrates many of the techniques that have made him a renowned award-winning modeler. He shows in detail his conversion techniques, different horse types and colors, choice of paint colors, undercoating and shading, sponge painting, dappling and final painting and detailing.

A highly detailed menu lists each topic for easy and immediate navigation whilst the DVD pause facility allows you to stop the action at any time to appreciate in close detail each step and the finished astonishing models.
