whoa, hey red. i had no idea you read my blog. maybe you don’t really, and rachel just told you to look at it. oh well. no, i’m actually using plastic army men, 2-3 inches tall for the units. i used some of that special Krylon spraypaint for plastic on them, then painted helmets silver and gold to signify 5- and 10-unit increments, respectively. maybe some day though, if i get really bored or break both of my legs or something, i’ll carve some actual cavalry and artillery units for it.
on sort of a side note, i am in awe of the fact that you were able to make $4 buying a printer. that’s pretty impressive.
