Just a quick post to those doubters out there to show that 6mm does have detail.

Here is my first attempt at an Adler Hussar, Prussian chappy.

(Please note that you CAN paint buttons on 6mm!)




Here are some PlasmaBlast 6mm sci-fi infantry which are part of my new FUBAR project:



Here are some Brigade Models 6mm Power Armour troops, again for use in FUBAR.



Shading, highlighting and buttons, all on 6mm!

6mm FTW!

They have come a long way, Doug and Luger both swear by them! How are they able to get so much detail on such tiny figures?

Doug and Luger both swear by them!

who and who?

Sounds like a Music Hall double act…

They both post regularly and are strong advocates of 6mm miniatures.

They are wise men it seems.

Darn it – better painted than some of my 15s!

Nicely done.

What are the bases on the SciFi figures – the lip in the middle is rather neat?

Hopefully the painters have optical care on there medical plans!

Very nice work.

Alas not, I am blind as a bat!
Spectacles are cool though right?

How did you get pictures into the message boards?
I thought that this was not possible.

You use the formatting from Photobucket or similar which posts it here rather than just being a direct link.

tiddly winks!

So how far does an infantryman move?

Depends how good you are with the squidger grin

Bloody hell :O
That is amazing, all my 6mm infantry are on small FoW bases… I'm not game enough to individually base. lovely work overall though mate.
Might have to grab some of those PB infantry, they look really tasty.

Angel Barracks Inactive Member04 Jul 2011 10:52 a.m. PST

Cheers all.
They are very nice the PlasmaBlast infantry, right up my alley!
