I decided to switch gears. I don't really have any Spanish-suitable terrain, but a few weeks ago a fellow Gamer & once upon a time mentor, Derek Watson, gave me a big Ziploc bag full of Foamcore. it turns out it was the pieces to a pair Spanish churches that he had started to cut out. Most of the basic pieces had been cut out. I had to cut a few windows here and there, and i re-cut a few pieces from some Foamcore I have in the back room. I also added a roof made from Sheet Styrene and a sheet of MBS 1/50th Clay tile roofing.

church has been based on
Like the photo the church will have a walled, raised cemetery around back and when it is done, the whole thing will be approximately 12" x 20". I'm still a little confused as to how to texture teh church. If you have any ideas, by all means let me know.
In other news, earlier this week, Vince Conners at Army Group North Miniatures emailed me, and Let me know that next time i place an order he will include a replacement T-28, free of charge.
Once again I am astonished by the good will of the miniatures industry. The kind of response I have gotten from Conquest and AGNM will easily make me(and hopefully many others) a loyal customer for years to come. If you get a chance, reward these kind souls for their kindness with a purchase. I know I will.
