|Green on the left and natural straw brown on the right...now...which style to pursue?|
I have an interesting dilemma which I am keen to get some feedback on from the wargaming fraternity.
For my 1805-07 project as well as the impending Peninsular project for 2020, I have wanted to depict the figures in a somewhat "1980"s style "Miniature Wargames", "Wargames Illustrated" complete with the mounted Colonel on the different style command base etc. For me this was the magic period of Peter Gilder Connoisseurs and Hinchcliffe armies with wonderful animated figures on nearly every colour plate.

I have been tearing and cutting apart various mates to use as tufts and have generally left them unpainted. However a recent experiment with some Vallejo Military Green and a dry brush of Humbrol yellow gave me an overall effect which I found quite fetching.
|The brown colour doesn't look out of place though|

|I do love this range of Elite Miniatures figures. These are on a three man base for deployment in General D'Armee|
|Austrians in case you thought your eyes were deceiving you|

I am generally torn on this one and so I am keen to see what other passionate wargamers may think.
