I'm out of coins at the moment so the Zvezda figs, although the painting is done and they are varnished as well, are still not completed.
I did not particularly like painting these fellows and they took a lot of time too. My original plans were to paint two major and two lesser factions in different colours but that may just be reduced to the two big armies as I feel no further inclination to do more.
What I have found instead is a six-barreled toy gun with a spring action. This is very cool and shoots BB bullets to three or four metres. A 'real' spring toy gun costs too much but this one was cheap and had multiple barrels. Cut the barrels off (they were moulded together), and I'll be making six single-barreled guns which fit for 54mm figs. I'd like to do SYW in the near future so the Armies in Plastic / HäT boxes would be a good start. I'll need wheels for the cannons first. There's a fellow in the US who sells MDF cart wheels on ebay but he ships only to the US - gotta look for alternatives.
