spiritual_exorcist Posted December 24, 2005 Share Posted December 24, 2005 My biggest problem with using different paint schemes for different units is that I always feel obligated to field the same troops over and over because that is the way they are painted up. This is exactly what I was thinking, SE. My solution to this is to use tiny colored rubber bands (about 1/4" diameter) to differentiate troops. You bring up a good idea too. It sounds like it would be both classy-looking and useful. Any ideas of what materials to use? Print out the labels on regular computer paper and then glue them on? You mentioned lacquer, but what exactly does this entail? I havn't attempted this yet, but my first thought would be to cut the label as close in size as possible to the base size, glue the label on, paint the edges of the label balck (when you cut them out the edges would be white despite th background being black and the lettering white) and then hit it with a couple coats of dullcoat. Hopefully this would protect it enough to prevent the printer ink from running, and I could then apply a coat of paint on varnish/clear coat, and then I'd zap it again with a coat or two of spray varnish. Just my thoughts on the subject, I have yet to try it as I said, but I have seen it done effectively on several miniatures for different games in the past.
