The city template has been blocked out with a blue-green-grey undercoat. The aim will be to have the brighter colours on the older buildings in the city centre, with more grey, burning and shell holes out on the outskirts.
The city is divided into cells, being differentiated by black lines and different ground colours. North is off to the right of the picture below.
Phil Steele very kindly gave me a Celtic cross that he had spare. I briefly toyed with the idea of leaving it silver, as a tribute to his celebrated technique of headswopping just before a battle!
As the rows of windows advance, the city is beginning to take on three dimensions, despite the buildings being flat facades. For me, the illusion is complete, but then I’m easily pleased. I don’t mind that some of the original stations and St Basil’s are in 3-D, or that some of the doors and buildings are in different scales. The discrepancies are lost in the welter of detail.
