The Grey Rider

Here is a character that might be familiar to some.  I bought this figure because I really like the horse- plenty of character and I thought it could make a fantastic steed for a dark ages hero.  Unbeknown to me, the wizard on top of it was part of the two part casting and difficult to separate from the mount.  So I painted him up anyway.  I wasn't too happy with the staff and thought if I could swap it with a spear he might look a bit more intimidating and warlike. I toyed with painting in different colours, but I really wanted to see if I could pull off painting a figure in predominantly grey shades.
