I started in late 70's at Middlesbrough Wargames Club and have still yet to play with unpained figures. It is just so so very wrong Angry  Wink

Unfortunately I have had occassion to field largely unpainted forces so that I can get a game in with my latest army. I don't have the ability to speed paint like Nik but probably spend too much time trying to get figures, tanks etc looking just right. It is actually one of the parts of the hobby that I really enjoy, but it just takes me ages. Add on top of that work, family, sleep and rarely a social life and there is very little time left in the day.

Back!  Back!!  Foul devil...

Unpainted lead (or plastic) is the cardinal sin i'm afraid.

It's an insult to your opponent.

Never done it, never will.

That said, i'm not averse to the odd 'proxy' figure or two, especially when scoping out a new ruleset or army...
