We regret to announce the loss of Herman Shmit, Marksman of 3rd Pltoom of No 2 Real Scale company. Herman had qualified through Coluring and was out on his final task before leaving for the front, Basic Basing. In a tragic accident he became lost in the flock. The extent of the area of flock is vast, despite reasonable efforts we were unable to find him. The search has been called of. He has been decared as MIF(Missing In Flock) his platic parents have been informed.

Proably only happens at 1/144 where prone 3D printed thin base based single figures are used.

Such things happen in 6mm and 2mm as well. My condolences for your loss, but never give up hope. Plastic and metal soldiers have been MIF for years, but eventually found and returned to duty.

The ceremony in which they are reunited with their comrades to shouts of "Ya bring us back anything?" and "You owe me five bucks!" are always very emotional moments.
