Cheers. I don't think the general flatness can be counteracted by trying to hide it, so make it a feature, not a bug.

Once you get past that I think they figures (not my painting) look really good in a Billard table way.

I think I have massively over ordered though! However at the prices it isn't end of the world.

A bit of an experiment. A Pendraken. 2x1 base, spare gun wheels and limber. Sides are punch out slot waste from TT Combat scenery

Great work

Found out my grey spray paint (citadel "standard') is dark grey. Jaegers on hold u too I get a lighter grey.

Have to be the Uhlans then.

Walt, if you're reading, which did you say to sub in by clipping of the plume and gluing a black paper diamond to make the czapka? Trouble finding the email.

So, not having the light enough spray grey I went back to the decals on tiles. There is a knack, but once you've got it its relatively easy to do, and the annoying fold-over is rescueable if it happens. I've done about 47 on 2x1cm tiles, plus about 12 unit names on 4x1s.

Part of the trick is once I've put a couple in the low dish I use (which is also used as a spoon rest when cooking) rub the 2 painted tiles together to sand each with the rough paint on the other.

Lockdown is helping here. Its not just the extra time I have. To allow us to spread about in the office I'm on 3 days one week, the 2 next - its the being rested and bored. I put on a film or comedy, and can take little breaks. Usually I'm busy or tired in the week, and out hiking on a Saturday.

Just a reminder for me, as I'm having trouble remembering, and my tablet doesn't like this email she. I try and find it.
