Hello all.

I've just updated my blog with my latest project, Heroics and Ros 6mm British. These were a joy to paint.

As this is my first time painting 6mm I would welocme any tips.

Nice to see some infantry for a change. Its amazing how many 6mm guys paint up everything but the ground pounders!

Great looing force.

I like painting the infantry. I won't lie and say it wasn't daunting at first but once in the swing of it, it went rather painlessly.

Those look great, especially for a first effort at 6mm. Very effective basing, too.

I don't think you need to change anything in your technique. One thing I tried recently on WW2 vehicles is to add a light dry-brush highlight of khaki along the edges and corners. It makes the shape of the vehicle a bit more visible. On a real military vehicle that would be a bad thing, but for a gaming model I like the effect.

Aside from trying that if you feel like it, just keep doing what you're already doing!

Thanks Patti's Magnus😀

I normally dry brush the edges of my 15mm kit but completely ignored it on the 6mm. I'm working on my t64s so will give it a go.
