Robert Burns never chased these boys for the excise
I picked a box of these chaps cheap last year and have been a little unsure what to do with them. I was planning on using them in my occasional Rogue Trader games, but painting them in a very simple colour scheme. The idea was to be able to use the pointy hatted chaps either as cultists or any of the myriad Imperial institutions that like robes as a uniform. I think they look like they'd make reasonable Adeptus Mechanicus types, so red robes all round. Red robes would also do for cultists. Unfortunately, I don't have much experience painting red on 28mm figures and I'm a bit concerned that they will end up looking pinkish.
Undercoated and ready to go
So, dear Readers, if you have any relatively fool proof (and please be aware I'm a particularly ingenious fool) tips for painting large areas of red quickly I would appreciate them. I'm been looking online and there are some good tutorials out there, but mainly aimed as chaps with airbrushes and who are to be honest, far better painters than I.
Are you not entertained?
