Point taken. I know I should dirty them up a bit but donít feel confident enough yet to try that - Iíve destroyed hours of work before by being too heavy handed with that aspect. Maybe down the track when Iíve tried it on a few test pieces.  :)

It's always a problem, having created a very nice set of buildings, do you try and make them great and risk making them worse than when you started.
All I can say is that you've made a very impressive start here and I look forward to seeing how it progresses.
The two figures in the front of your group, do you remember who makes them?

Vagabond - they are available directly from www.pulpalley.com.

They are Dr Fang's henchmen from one of the scenarios of the month. They come complete with character cards too.  :)
Enjoying the game is ALWAYS more important than winning the game.

When I'm weathering model trains, I start with a pot of crushed oil pastels and a small brush that's too manky for painting, working the powder into the crevices. This has the advantage that I can tone down the colour if I overdo it.

I used the method on this railcar, and added the rust effects later. Try to ignore the slipped window...

That's very effective. I'd very much like to see a tutorial of that.
