Following on from my earlier post about bases here's my first batch of 6mm tanks based up, labelled and varnished. A trio of Tigers to give the Allied a headache.
Now that I have painted my 'test' models I'm really happy with the way these turned out. I wish I'd discovered micro armour years ago, but now I need to make up for lost time! Guess I'll be hitting the internet this evening and exercising the credit card!!
Lovely stuff Lee, the base writing works well!ReplyDelete
Those are fantastic. I particularly like the labels - can you give any insight on how you produced those?ReplyDelete
Ooooooooo They look very nice Mr Hadley!!!!ReplyDelete
Nice tanks Lee. Knew you'd like micro tanks. Take about 1/10 of the time to paint compared to 20mm and still look good.ReplyDelete
Great looking models and paint job Lee. What rules are you planning on using with your 6mm stuff?ReplyDelete
I'm going to try adapting the FOW rules.Delete
Love the paint job... however ... if I make one small critical comment? Blowing the pics up that much actually doesn't flatter - they look much better at actual size or close to it: the highlights work, whereas blown up they look a bit electon-micrographish!ReplyDelete
That aside? They're awesome.
So what's your method? Block in colors. Wash with ? Dry brush highlights/edges?ReplyDelete
Block painted with Middlestone and black for tracks, Dry brushed with Ivory, washed with Devlan Mud and then another quick drybrush with Ivory.Delete
Yes, please give some more detail on your method.ReplyDelete
Really nice Lee.ReplyDelete
Nice shading work Lee, they really pop!ReplyDelete
Really nice and love the labellingReplyDelete
Nice stuff, well doneReplyDelete
They look great!ReplyDelete
Very nice. I bet they are quick to get done as well.ReplyDelete
Those look terrific. I really like the complimentary colours of the bases and tanks, and the information panel at the back is very cool. Splendid stuff, Lee!ReplyDelete
Nice looking tanks. I take it they are GHQ ?
I've used FOW rules with my 6mm guys as well, and it works really well. I love the look of the 15mm stuff, but IMHO FOW ranges are just ridiculous when used with 15mm.
When I bought them I thought they were GHQ although there was no label on the box. But when I went online to buy some more I realised these are actually from CinC.Delete
