Someone needs to try this out and report back...
Here is a top tip for those of you who use static grass on their bases to make them look more realistic. Once the grass has been applied, and I use PVA for that, put the figures on a plastic tray and leave them on top of the telly overnight.
The static electricity in the telly,(and it doesn't have to be left on, watch that carbon footprint. my [gordon brown]), will charge the grass and make it all stand up, looking much better than some of the sparse limp efforts you see.
Jon Sutherland came up with that gem, and it works a treat.
