Yeah, some of the guys on the 6mil FB groups seem to be doing better, although it might be a case of grass being greener, etc.

Thanks, the tower has slowed but is getting there, can't find my bleeding decals though...

Yeah agreed - not massively impressed.

I have a few colours Iíd use on 6 or 15mm fully armoured minis. Thatís about it.

Iím looking forward to seeing your tower progress!

Holy moly 6mmPhil!!

Fantastic stuff! Lovely paint job on them Bugs, good homage to the film!

Didn't know you had a thread. Brave taking on 6mm fantasy I had a go some years back but couldn't hack it, been tempted to do some 6mm sci fi but will wait until most of my 15mm is complete.

Yeah I'm gonna try the red on something else and see how it goes.

Thanks. Tbh I found it really easy, those Microworld mini's almost paint themselves...

The yellow and the Ďgreení thatís actually blue are very good for that purpose. I found the red a touch too strong.

I saw very little contrast with the red, but then again it's 6mil so the detail is a lot smaller and so is any contrast effect.

Haven't had a lot of free time but I did manage to finish these. I had great fun making them, each one is a pair of MDF bases, a piece of plumbing tube, a lid from an empty spice jar, clump foliage (home made) and some putty.
