Have you ever painted nothing but white for two weeks? I wouldn't recommend it. Despite a lot of work there is still a hell of a lot more to do.
I doubt that there exists an infantry figure of any army of any period that takes more time to paint than a Cameron Higlander flank company man - the kilts alone take an age, then you've got the lace on the tunic, then the hugely irritating winged epaulettes, then the highland band around the socks, then the highland band around the bonnet... I keep thinking about how much easier French or Prussians would be. What I'd give for a nice greatcoat and trousers, I reckon I could get 10 French figures done for every bastard from the 79th Foot.
