This is absolutely ace. All of it  :D

Not sure my designs will stretch to being shrunk to 3mm!

Amazing! Who makes 3mm space marines?

Does a certain company that shall go unnamed care about that? From what Iíve seen recently in 15mm, 3mm, etc offerings, it would seem ... not?

Thing is, I donít have enough vaganza in my life as it is, so I really think itís a bit unfair that some people have extra....

@Ultravanillasmurf - Thanks!

@Jagannath - Cheers man! I donít see why some tiny civilian vehicles and silos wouldnít look fabulous on a titanís base.

@Khurasan Miniatures - Thanks! There are quite a few very suitable proxies about as you say. Personally I love the tiny scales and these 3mm ones make my Titans look massive. Love your ranges by the way, iíve Got quite a few in my 15mm Rogue trader paining queue. Quick question, are there going to be any new races for Away Team? The Tahey are brilliant.

@ blacksoilbill - They totally are, arenít they!

Thanks Grumbledook yes as a matter of fact Iím just now previewing the Terran team on my Facebook. The captain with that perfect hair(piece) is first....

Two more alien races are made as well.

A little touch of threadomancy to bring this back from the dead!

Nearly a year on and, with a little bit of time available, I painted up some more of my 3mm mountain. These chaps are Vangard Novan Regulars but, having slapped on some red paint and a shiny hat, they more than convincingly represent some Martian troops.



Iím phasing out round bases for infantry (keeping them for tanks though) since they are way too fiddly and switching to some rectangular ones with a 40mm frontage.

Hereís a close up so you can hopefully see some of the detain ones these casts:



Anyhow, forgive the revival and thanks for looking!

Brilliant but you go where I cannot follow.
3mm? These eyes are over forty years old man!
Great work :)

I love 3mm and 6mm figures but, sadly, I just can't them as well as you and others do.

Cheers guys! These figures are actually quite forgiving, youíd be able to get away with a basic coat and a wash for shading since the casts are actually very crisp.

I tend to go a bit overboard and most of the detail is unnoticeable from a fairly short distance. Just trying to make the most of being able to see stuff at this scale!

One thing I do is base all my figs to one side of the stand. It gives it that GW ďbolter firing line lookĒ and makes it easier to see which way is forward.

@Ockman - Good to be back! Very impressed with your continuing 15mm odyssey.

@Jagannath - Cheers, a commander needs to be able to see where their troops are after all! Any more 6mm or smaller experiments in the pipeline? 3mm vehicles would be ace  :D

@Macunaima - Iíve just based some on 40x15mm base, much more straightforward and easier to pick up!

Tanks! These little chaps were a great deal of fun to paint and will be at least tripling in number for a classic video game-esque tank rush.



And an action shot!



More on the way soon, Iím experimenting with the rectangular 40mm frontage basing for the infantry so they are next in the queue.

Thanks for looking!

Really cool tanks! Lovely terrain as well!

Thanks, mate. It warms the heart of a hobbyist!
