Today I gathered up the sticks of Zouaves and the four regiments of infantry I'd painted over the last few weeks, then popped the figures off their sticks:
I then snipped the strips of skirmishers to give individual figures. That was followed by gluing all the figures onto bases with PVA:
Tomorrow night, the basing mix should be ready for dry-brushing and adding some static grass. The final fun step will be to add the flags.
While the glue was drying, I disassembled a few cars and put them in the stripping jar. After scrubbing and rinsing them (and letting them dry) I smoothed the ends of the joints with the Dremel sander, then tapped the drill holes and reassembled them.
These will be getting posted to someone in Australia next weekend - he was after some of these, but couldn't find any locally so I volunteered to grab them for him. It's taken me nearly a month to find all three he wanted, which is what led me into temptation and buying lots for myself whilst conducting my search. Well, I don't have that excuse any more.
