So I have painted my first Nappy English.
I quite enjoyed it, issues about plastic moulding quality aside but I have one question.
Can I paint the trousers other colours apart from white? I dont really like painting white as it takes a lot of effort and still tends to look sh*t.
I have seen piccies on the web of other models where they are wearing tan or even brown trousers. That would make life a lot easier and would look better in my opinion as well. Can I do that? If so what sort of percentage can I do in other colours? The less sets of white trousers I have to shade the more likely I am to get enough painted to be usable for a game before i get fed up with them.
Also what skirmish level rules are out there? I know about Sharps practice, which I will try and pick up at Claymore. What about Songs of Drums and Shakos from Ganesha? I have read spome good reviews and you only need about 20 models a side so though that might be a good place to start as that would only take me about 6 months to paint up the models for
I know virtually nothing about this period but want to give it a bash, albeit at skirmish level. All help greatly appreciated.
When young, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. I am fifty now I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.
