Default The Beginning of Kirov!

Well, many will remember I was planning a board at the start of the summer. After a summer of lazing around and not much else, I did manage to buy the materials and start work. I plan 6 city blocks, 4 on one side of a river, 2 on the other with a double-block with some trees and craters.
Diagrams can be seen here:

I painted up one tile, all the buildings, and laid rubble down on 2 tiles, on of which is aforementioned as painted. Here are pics:

All 6 blocks with buildings: [this is not the layout I will use... I'm not done yet!]


The Painted block, as a sample and test model:


And the freshly-rubbled Block 2:


How do you guys think its coming along?

It looks really good!

Especially those walls -what materials are you using?

Hahaha! I didn't make the buidings... I'm not that good!

I bought them, they're Amorcast terrain, Terra Form to be specific. They actually went out of business.

I wish I could make buildings like that!

Thanks!

Thanks!
Well, no pics at the moment, but I did paint up that one rubble pile I was working on. I also laid down another one. That makes 3 rubbled, 2 or which are painted, out of 6. I still have to do the baseboard, which, while simple, will have cool details like a sewer system and a river.

My estimated finish date is the end of September.

Thanks man!

I've been forstalled a bit... school just started today... and I'm away this weekend. But, hopefully, I can finish the rubble. I think if I can get over that, I can put all effort into painting, and get it all done in one fell swoop.

I also need to begin work on the small park-like block that will be filling the space of 2 blocks. I was thinking some flock, lots of craters, gravel and sand, and broken twigs [tree trunks]. The odd shrubbery [homemade] thrown about to keep things interesting, and maybe a ruined park bench.

Thoughts?
