And, I'm back on-line... I was able to get some stuff done during the unscheduled but necessary downtime and the other things that are happening in this household - a little bit more work on the archers for the First Legion of Ever Present Glory:
In this pic, the finished archers are settling into their element basing, with the rear rank already glued down, and front rank waiting. I have marked the approximate locations of the front rank onto the base, as I will add some filler to the base before gluing them down.
Here, the base has been covered in a thin coating of the paste in the background (found in the bargain bin at the local art store some time ago).
And a coat of paint. Next step will be to add sand, rocks, and flock to finish the element.
