Got a few photos of some figs in and out of the box…all 6mm Adler

Wow! Love the figures, battlefield, and the display cabinet.

I plan on retiring in a couple of years and moving to Arizona. My wife has said that in our new house she wants me to have a dedicated "War Room" with a cabinet to store and display my 15mm wargaming figures. I think I'd like to have it glassed.

Gotta love a big wood and glass display!

That is seriously impressive.

Those really are beautiful-looking armies Rob. I never used to like Adler figures (in fact I have said some pretty rude things about them on these forums) but I may have to revise my opinion after seeing them displayed like that.

Great work.

You always make 6mm figures come alive. Really like your set up. Do you find one manufacture better than another with regards to detail and ease of painting?

I have the most experience with Adler figures, which I find have great detail. With 6mm, I think the technique one uses and the magnification you care to see them at determines the 'ease' of painting!

Great work, very impressive!

Breathtaking work, given how small they are!!

Fantastic looking army you have there.

I just LOVE Adlers.

Very impressive. Both miniatures and display cabinets. Due to lack of space, my Adler figs are all in plastic boxes and trays at the moment, which is sometimes a time wasting pain when getting them ready for a game.

I guess I will just have to have to try and up my painting skills and sort out some better troop holders. But I do hope we get to see more of your miniatures.

Lovely figures and superb terrain, What is your secret to no broken bayonets? For the life of me I can't stop march attck Adlers losing them!

Thanks Col,
One happy by-product of the 'miracle wash'
[link: TMP link ]
I use that contains the 'Future' acrylic floor-wax seems to be much stronger swords and bayonets. It really seems to strengthen the weak ones and protect them all. They bend less easily and when they do the metal seems to fatigue much less. I brush it on them. I'm sure the speay gloss after that helps too, but the strong yet not brittle properties of 'Future' seem to make the most difference.

Thanks for the update. I'm in sunny Northern Ireland and I don't think we have the various products, It's amazing to see what wentinto that mix…or to work out how it was arrived at!!

It's just good science :)
