Jeff just left a comment on my blog that is really got me thinking about what colours to paint my troops. Thanks for the heads-up Jeff, most helpful.
I think that I am going to have to develop a colour palette for my troops so that they don't clash and don't look too similar.
A couple other OSW have left comments, thanks for your encouragement lads.
As this is my first blog I think that I am going to have a look at other OSW blogs, perhaps even review them! (I can already hear the sound of OSWs typing away on their machines to up-date their blogs before I get there).
