Sad to say you will never convince the diehards – just like the people who know that plastic figures shed paint more than metal figures do.

You can paint your plastic figures, you can drop them on the floor and show they still have paint on them, you can show figures you've had for 20 years or more and they will still tell you that plastics shed paint.

It IS all about technique, and that's why my first attempts at 6mm figures are awful, and the later ones not too bad (for me).

POLL DESCRIPTION

Writing in Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy #22, Peter Berry of Baccus 6mm writes that people are "completely absolutely and insanely wrong" when they repeat the "myth" that 6mm figures are too small to paint:

The assumption is that because the figures are much smaller that 28mms or 15mms they are much more difficult to paint. In fact the reverse is the case, as 6mm are possibly the easiest scale figures to paint...

Do you find 6mm figures too small to paint?
