    Correct me if Im wrong, but that temple looks to have a footprint of about 6" x 10". Just how much space will the entire city take up, Pogre?

    You're very close - 6.5" by 11.5".

    The temple will be situated in a larger forum, which will be similar to this:
    Virtual Roman Temple

    In the near term, the city will cover 4 feet by 6 feet. The long term plan calls for 6 feet by 8 feet.

    I have most of the walls finished and have designed the sectional aquaduct that runs through the city. Currently, I am contemplating designs for the bath house. The city is roughly styled after ruins found in modern turkey.

    And my players think I'm over the edge when it comes to terrain & minis! Most impressive.

    I would never spill the beans...

    ...but I would encourage any interested parties to ask Pogre why he's building the ancient city.

    Speaking of obsessive behavior... You have to check out this impressive effort by Scorch! Fantasy Senate by Scorch and others.

    Be sure to tell him how much it rocks - because it certainly does!

    The picture below is a thumbnail link to a larger pic.

    This was an experiment with using a light source. I think he turned out pretty fair. Blending is a bit rough, but I learned a lot.

    WOW! I don't usually frequent this part of the boards, put I'm glad I wandered over here, even if just to see that one mini! Really, really awsome. I fancied myself a pretty good mini painter, but I cant even come close to light effects like that. Did you use some sort of visual aid, or did you just go by what you thought the areas should look like?

    Hey Pogre.
    Nice to see you back. Very nicely done.
    I think the lighting works very well.
    How does it look on the tabletop?

    Game ON!
