Below is a quick snap I took this morning of the figures waiting to be undercoated.
As I was reaching around to grab the spray can, a gust of wind caught the box and dumped the figures onto the lawn!
I found most of them, but two Saxon Elite (both of the "Vikings playing golf" poses that I had used) and one British Levy were lost in this fatal accident; they're somewhere in my lawn...
So now I have to base up some replacements.
I was just downstairs (a few hours later) hanging some laundry when I noticed a tiny glint in the lawn. All 3 figures recovered. Hurrah! Lucky I hadn't started making up those new bases yet...
