So, is wargaming ethical? Well here I think the answer's “Yes, why not?” It's a game and certainly not a proper simulation. I don't care what the purists think. If it were even approaching a proper simulation we'd all have to give up life and devote out time wholly to what would then cease to be a hobby. Nobody dies and, as one great man said, there are no lead widows or orphans. However, I think there are limits. The Salute 'Nazis' were way beyond the pale for me, but we set our own boundaries. Are suicide bombers now acceptable in games? There was a HUGE outcry over this on PMT a few years ago involving the Stan Johanssen and TAG ranges. I wonder if this is the case now?
- the horse is a straight block paint with Army Painter Strong Tone washed over. This was then dry brushed in areas such as the fetlocks and painted main and tail and muzzle;
- the trooper was a straight block paint and Army Painter Dark Tone wash.
- the horse is an oil wipe with other colours painted in as normal;
- the officer is a block painted figure with my oil wash formula applied.
