14Neglected Youth

ClosedEnded Jul 6th, 2016

Juves are often neglected, or at least low priority, when painting and modelling gangs and warbands. They are the test pieces to see if a paint scheme will work, and often have the least attention paid to them when it comes to details and finishing touches. We all know what happens when youths are neglected, they become the Young and the Restless, and it is rare to hear the word "delinquent" without the prefix "Juvenile"
