Most excellent! My 8 year old grandson loves playing games with Grandpa. Metal or plastic, he loves 'em all.

the different colors in the boxes may work just fine for you then – my son doesn't care that they aren't painted, but likes the various colors.

For my 15mm Malakand Field Force, I ended up using Army Painter Skeleton Bone primer as the base color for my Brits, and Khaki for the Pathans. I heavily drybrushed the Pathans with P3 Menoth White Base (a near-white tan), a friend of mine that had been deployed to Astan said they looked about right.
