Challenge Day 64 - WotR Archers Almost Done

That's right - they are so close to being finished that I'm itching to finish them. But I can't as the pumice gel I've added to the bases needs to dry. Drat! I'll have to wait until tomorrow.

Here are a couple of pics:





As you can see, the pumice gel does shrink a bit as it dries. That isn't a huge problem as I'll be adding some ballast and small rocks tomorrow.


Given that the various stages involved tomorrow will require some drying time in between, I guess I'll be looking at getting a few bits done to prepare for other submissions to fill that dead time.

I've got the Hasslefree figures to base for painting, some of which require a bit of assembly. I've also been prepping some 30YW figures during my lunch breaks at work this week; they need to go onto painting sticks and the pikemen need pikes glued into place.

I may even assemble some more WotR figures to paint up towards the end of the Challenge.

Oh, I almost forgot. I had another delivery today. Nothing exciting; just some Noch static grass puffer bottles.

  2. This Perry Plastics WotR army will look stunning if the rest looks like these archers Ms P. I can hear you gnashing your teeth in impatience all they way across the pond.

  3. Very nice Archers - and what is a Noch static grass puffer bottle?

  4. Wow that is stunning, I can't wait to see more of your Perrys. They're going to be a massive point drop, over 300!

  5. With this prodigious output, you're going to need a bigger flat.

  6. @ Rodger - cheers! :)

    @ Robert - thanks! If you can hear my teeth gnashing over there, my dentist will probably be most unhappy with me when I next go for a check-up!

    @ Dannoc - cheers! It's a soft-plastic bottle, from a company called Noch, which you fill up with static grass then puff it out onto your bases - it helps to ensure the grass has a static charge and stays upright in you dabs of PVA.

    @ Baconfat - it may be a a few weeks before I do any more WotR, I'm afraid. Hope you can wait that long :)

    @ Michael P - well, if I'm the Prodigy's output, that new flat had better be fireproof *grin*
