Okay, here's the big clue:
Yep, I'm building my own army. One I'm casting entirely on my own (or with a little help). I'm going to build an imaginary nation along the lines of other's "Not Quite the Seven Years War" projects. I've picked up a handful of molds and the casting material and begun the slow process of making these figures one at a time. Hopefully Bill and I can do a "casting party" and crank out a bunch in one sitting.
Anyways, more to follow!
