First WELCOME TO THE FORUM!
I always admire (and cheer) for those who at least make the effort to go for what they want. The effort ifself shows character and willingness to "do the work".
While am not familar with what I assume to be a series of books (Ruritania). Anything that inspires our imagination is a great resource.
I am curious, are you painting troops for somewhat 'large battles', "company" or "battalion" for example, or simply for "skirmish" games with perhaps neighboring 'border guards' or even unruly 'Ruritanian' trouble makers, perhaps hiding in distant secluded parts of their homeland?
Keep painting.. and keep working on that goal!
OH a little friendly "warning".. from time to time you might find that when you "save" somthing you have posted, for no reason what so ever, Lefor will just Randomly Change the Font. Or it may change it then correct it automatically.
You can learn to accept this.. OR just pull your hair out.. as I have done. LOL
