Always keep in mind the importance of grouping your objects to make them easier to paint. We'll (hopefully) get started with a little painting today.
I'll give you a little background about ye olde hydrant to get you thinking about how to make it look really nice and beat-up. Maybe we'll even pay our fire hydrant a little visit in RL. :o)
This assignment isn't due for a few weeks so you'll have lots to time to paint it and apply a couple of new kinds of maps.
