[WWI] Hyperscale W29 build - strange lozenge

The only evidence I could find was the colour descriptor at the end of the Datafile 55, with a little schematic of hexagons and a colour call-out.  I do not have it to hand but I don't think it said anything about rose or pink.

As you suggest, WWI colours are difficult to pin down.

I suspect that I will see it in the flesh/plastic at QMHE in 3 weeks time.  Dave Wilson lives locally.

It is. And notice that he *brush* painted it, which I find very impressive (despite his using Citadel paints which make even that dark art *somewhat* easier).

Absent any evidence whatever, I can hardly criticise WNW's research, but then I'm not giving them any greater credence than I give any other manufacturer either. After 90+ years there's bound to be a lot of guesswork involved no matter how self confident the "authority" might be, and so long as the colours aren't offensively unlikely they're pretty well impossible to prove or disprove absolutely. Six of one or half a dozen of the other?
