Trying to get through the undercoated pile on WOTR figures (15mm) led me to try something different this evening to go from white undercoat to an intermediate step as quick as possible.

You can get the general idea from an all over basecoat

To something I could get on the table with

More photos etc can be found here

Still need to go over and touch up weapons etc but start to finish was under 60 minutes for 15 figures. As I stopped for photos etc and a bit of TV I can probably up the speed to get the rest of this lot done by the end of the month


(as long as every other project doesn't get in the way).

Good idea re undercoating.

See here:

for a very interesting discussion about the possible use of crossbows in the WOTR.

They look good. Way to get a lot of guys done at once.

It was a crossbow, fired by Henry Tudor from a grassy knoll that killed Richard III!

It was a crossbow, fired by Henry Tudor from a grassy knoll that killed Richard III!

And what evidence can you offer to support that statement?

He is on about Kennedy (I think)

Kennedy? I know of no such person in the WOTR?

Sorry Margard,
I meant I thought it is a parody of Kennedy's assasination not someone at the Battle
