Hair-o-matic

This tool was born from a valid need I had back in the days I was painting unit after unit of dwarves, each of them a solid block of 20-40 models. The dwarves have magnificent facial hair and they started to look like clones if I made all their beards the same colour.

But how do you choose a colour for each of the beards?

As I have an academic training in random number generation I new very well that when a human being is asked to choose a bunch of random numbers he will select poorly based on some subconscious pattern.

So I geeked-out (that was a meta-geekout considering I was already painting geeky miniatures) and wrote a script to truly randomise hair colours.

Now, 16 years later, the script has been refurbished and you are welcomed to use it for your mass-painting needs.
