The mdf figures are not for me, but I do so like the look. Very old school, and simple - I would use them in a landscape of children's wooden building bricks, lollipop trees and rectangular hills, all the time thinking of H G Wells and Little Wars

Painted a couple of regiments of horses 1 hussars, 1 chasseur a cheval. Because of the colour of the wood I'm not undercoating with spray; I'm using a white paint pen to do just the rider and shabraque. Its quick to bring them into colour once that is done. Monday I did 36 horse unit of chasseur in an evening. Final regiment of chasseur to be done, then undercoat infantry at the weekend. The foot feel quicker to do, but as a unit is 96 probably the same time spent per unit.

Cavalry finished, but weather stopped undercoat spray. Will do generals instead, as I will paint pen them.

All horse painted, all generals and ADC (to show command points) done, along with most  'attached officer' bases.  Need to get some photos.

Saturday was calm enough to undercoat 60 strips of infantry. Almost finished first 12=1battalion.

Is there a way to remove strips of MDF soldiers from  MDF bases?:-) asking for an idiot who realised there's a better way to layout the figures.

Dampen them up as suggested then run a craft knife carefully under the figure ďbaseĒ. Done carefully you should get them off...

Saw the little chaps on the commission Figures stand at Phalanx and they really looked good. The Romans were very impressive.

Unfortunately these ones have been painted by me.

Battalion 10 almost finished. Turns out I can paint 96 in an innings if I didn't take breaks.

Two problems.
I took breaks
England collapse means the radio is off and therefore painting has stopped.

In hoping for more Ancients from Commission, as Iíve kind of enough Nappies and ACW figures. So I need more stuff to add to the pile Cheesy

Last Hussar, you need something else to relax with. The England Womenís Football Team are apparently very good and donít seem afflicted by our sportsmenís ability to stumble over imaginary deceased invisible turtles at the moment of glory Wink

I usually listen to BBC comedy, but I'm running out of stuff I want to listen to. However someone has put complete episodes of Yes Minister on YouTube, and apart from Paul Eddington's reaction shots (scripts often said Nothing more than "Paul reacts" because of how good these were) its non visual friendly.
