I wish I'd seen these before I finished painting my Elhiem British Osprey Armour Infantry:
What do you think of backpacks and bergans for your figures? Is it more realistic to have them attached? I am going to be gaming Brits in Helmand mainly, and most footage of patrols in Helmand show them with backpacks.
Is it possible to attach them after painting your figures (i.e. painted and varnished backpack attach to painted and varnished soldier)? Could you even use some temporary attachment method (blue-tack or similar) for when the men are patrolling?
