Well, this is how I left the 6mm Reb cavalry, Zouaves and commanders last night:
Yes - I did manage to get them glued onto their bases. That made for a quick start to work this evening, and I got the basing gunk added in a 90 minutes or so session. Here's a pic of them taken a few minutes ago:
The gunk is now drying and that will take at least overnight. Tomorrow night I'll be able to drybrush the bases and maybe add static grass and some tufts/clumps to the commanders' bases.
Yep, just a short update tonight.
