Well, I was right about one thing, it's taking a long time. Something else, dawn on me while painting away on the ruins. This is one of those projects that you can just paint on forever, and never be done. However, I must confess that it's been fun to paint up such big models compared to the regular toy solider.
So far, I'm pretty happy with how things are turning out. I finally manage to dig up a rulebook, and have been poking my nose in the color sections for inspiration. Its giving me bad ideas for bigger buildings that will take shape in the near future.
Once again, Thanks for all the great feedback from everybody. I really appreciate all the comments on my otherwise quiet blog.
