the track with a second coat of paint,
this was a much lighter version of my favorite color "mistint"
a third coat and some carefully applied lines to show the movement boxes
without being painfully obvious, this might just get another coat to further blend the look
every picture of the spina showed an obelisk.
I happen to like obelisks so I drew one up as a card model
OK little Billy, don't be an idiot like your Uncle Anton; geometry matters!
if the height of a triangle is half its width you can't form a pyramid with four of them
so I made a new top for the obelisk
the rest of it I made up out of bits and bobs from the "interesting shapes" bin
it looks oddly like one of my Victorian Science Fiction dreadnoughts
this is what you do with those old "true 25mm" lead generals
that you have been hoarding all those years
after touching up the mat I gave the spina a coat of primer color
this track has me thinking that there might
be other applications beyond chariot races
a pair of time-traveling Egyptian Pharaonic chariots give the track a test-run
I had a few minutes of free time so I painted the spina
the results are satisfying to my mind
Castor and Pollux apparently were hatched from one,
I will see what I can manage
An amusing aside (and far quicker than the nine month voyage that was the Castillo). Now I can get back to the serious business of painting toy soldiers.
