I know how everyone thinks HE spearmen hands are way to big, I agree, so I thought if you paint the hands as if though they wore gloves, either metal glovet or leather gloves, then it wouldnt look so unnatural. Im gonna do it for my next patch.

Perhaps this have been thought of before. If you find any pictures it would enhance the thread.

Here, and you're right, it looks much better (especially when gloves are painted same colour as spears)

But for some reason the helmets look even taller xD

Don't think it's as bad as most other people seem to think, but I'll happily take that advice anyway :)

Suddenly I'm happy I didn't start painting mine today, I woulda felt rather stupid if I had :P

I paint my spearmen that way, check my painting log for pictures.

I agree. if you don't go with the GW painting style, they don't look that bad. but the idea with the gloves is really great :)

Very, very good idea ...

*steals like a gob*

Will come really handy for my future High Elves ... works with bows too ?

hey... so do you think they were meant to gloved-hands ever since day one and somehow, someone just "blew it"?

This saves both painting time and some face--or hand--on a major pet-peeve of mine. I might yield and buy spearmen after all.

Hmm... I have a feeling it'd work even better on DE spearmen.

Yes, Ill repaint my DE spearmen to wear gloves as well!

For the record I would never ever go in to a hand to hand close combat without gloves.
