The horses have had a coat of Mocha and a sepia wash.

I could do with some diagrams of the  horses' harness, they seem to be few and far between.

I've been spending time looking at six horse teams and I think I now have the information I need. At least I' should be able to do a reasonable representation.
I've added some nice glossy dark brown leather harnesses to the horses. They still need another wash but they're looking better.

Left side horses.

The front horse here has the harness for the rearmost of the ridden horses.

Right side horses.

From what I've gleaned from the various sources these are in the correct positions.

I've thrown a first coat of ochre at the woodwork and done some very coarse marking out on the figures. With the four figures on the wurst I predict some heart felt anglo-saxon nouns and adjectives may stain the air blue when I progress to trying to tidy up the paintwork.

The second wash on the horses toned down the gloss on the harness and the horses themselves I think are improved.

I'm on wood and metal bits now, the boring part.

The figures are getting there. They have the uniforms on but no washes yet so they're a bit flat.

I''ve shelved this as the harnessing etc. was going to be very fiddly and the Dragoons are pressing to be finished. There are several ways to harness a six horse team and I've decided to go with the RHA harness below.

It's simpler than some but will still give a reasonable result in the model.

 

The connection to the limber for the rearmost horses will still be standard Austrian.
