What I worked out is put the squares on the table, then put PVA onto a 'pallet' (a old pre laser base in my case) and put the upsidedown horse man onto the glue, then pick the square up with the now glued head. Because I lined it up litre readjustment was needed pushing with tweezers.

I cut the paper until I got a strip the right width, then I used the nail clippers to cut squares, which are easy to judge by eye. Occasionally I had to clip it a little shorter.

I usually do remember to edge flags, but with these ones I was concentrating of colouring the paper on the ones that hadn't lined up properly, because they are so small, making folding difficult. They will be the ones without an edge. The ones that I folded accurately didn't need the exposed bit colouring in, so I forget the edge.

All I need to do now is the skirmishers for the Grenze/Freewilliger Bns. 48 (2x24) to be done

Problem is the coat is brown, the backpack is brown, the musket is brown, also the pack on the skirmish ones is a bit odd- the skirmishers are firing, which means for these flatish figures the pack is at an angle to the plane, so on the figure it tends to wrap round back and left side, giving a boxy appearance to the blokes shoulders/back.  It really is the only downside of these figures.

I'm going to use a acrylic paint for the musket stock, not sure what to do about the pack, as I'm not sure I have enough different browns.

Can you paint the brown for one piece and leave the other in the bare MDF? At game table length would that work... ?

I've only got 19 different brown model paints, plus 6 different brown test pots for basing/terrain

No, they're undercoated.

Orcs will tell you that paint is corrosive, so he leaves his figures unsullied.

No that is  my painting mountain range.  I have several thousands of painted figures.
