I had the same and wanted to try smaller scale. My tank is still waiting for being finished ;) I like what you already achieved.

My first idea was to finish it in weekend - why not, it's so small... But the reality is different. But I like the car. It's very interesting to paint it 'our way' (I mean miniature painter's way), because those wargaming units are often painted quick and rough. And I'm trying to focus on details, lights&shadows, higlights. It's pretty hard to take any photos, because the models are in fact 1-2 centimeters tall.

Another idea is to try paint 28 mm historic soldiers from Napoleonic wars with all those uniform details and colours. Might be challenging...

Painting these tiny soldiers is magical thing somehow, but real pain in the eyes :)))) Last W.I.P. photos (not good ones, taken in dark room under desklamp), will do some corrections and details on daylight and take final photos. And then voilá...

Next progress on Old Barbarian from Black Sun Miniatures. Going from base up and will finish with skin. This time some work on legs, boots, leather strips and leg armour plates. Next step is the belt cloth, leather strips on chest and shield.

Small progress on Old Barbarian figure - the blue belt cloth and evil belt face. He's starting to come out pretty nicely. I will continue with hammer and shield.
