Thanks  guys! I'm entertaining the notion I might do a mottled or even tiger stripe on the dark brown to break it up a bit...

I personally like the light brown & sand paint job.The white head pops out, I would leave it.

Cheers Z, I'll suck it up and put a couple of GM suits in the scheme and see how I like them in groups!

Welcome Ypu,
What is the brown one ? Can you post a pic next to  a 15mm mini, please?

Thanks

Sure thing Z,

It's a "guncannon mass production type" the model itself is a 1/400 gundam collection figure.





Models from left to right critical mass, rebel miniatures, eureka and clear horizon.

I got mine here, there is also a version with the shoulder cannons folded up and stowed.

Thanks for the reply, pic & info Ypu
Appreciated ;)

Looks great for 15mm & the price is cheap, especially when you compare to resin or metal models.
Are they soft plastic?

No trouble,

yes, though I think its more of a vinyl? some parts come quite bent, but heating it in hot water and straightening it before cooling helps quite a bit. The details are pretty good, especially for the price like you say. Do sand it thoroughly before priming, its the only way to get paint to stick I find.

I picked up the airbase set from Brigade models at Crisis. I've started painting one of the landing pads as a test while I fill any bubbles on the rest. They have quite a hefty texture on their "flat" surfaces so I went for a simple zenithal highlight on it first, then picked out details and painted the landing tarmac area.





The MS is a converted GM gold district type, I'll post more about that once it had a bit of a dull coat.

I am quite happy with how the pad looks for the effort put in, I think I'll go ahead and prime lot of them this way soon. I came to the conclusion that I have very little 6mm sci-fi scenery of my own, and an airbase seemed like the perfect thing to plop down in the middle of nowhere without looking too strange as a couple of civilian buildings would.

Nice.
Brigade does some great 6mm terrain and I must resist the temptation....
oh well we all know that's futile :D

Must get one or more of that mecha in the pic. It looks great especially with the shield.

Thanks!

I am just using them in place of regular GM's as I dislike that design and this is just much cooler looking. I 3d printed the bazooka and cratch build the beam saber hanlde on the back, and rebuild the entire elbow to make this pose possible.
