They look very good. 

Have you ever experimented with lightly dry-brushing tufts with Buff Titanium, or similar?  It can give a pleasing effect.

I have on some of my 28mm Napoleonics, http://www.briefspite.com/2011/10/14/2-musketier-bn-1-westpreussisches-ir/ , its a bit hard to see on that pic.

I might go over all the bases once I am "finished" and do some more work to them, but right now I have a mountain of lead that needs to get painted  :)

I have tried to do a few things in 6mm and they are terribly difficult to get "the right look."

You are doing a fantastic job.

Another lovely unit!  :-*

Thanks :)

They don't look like much until I do the shields and bases, I just wish my freehand was better/steadier.

Finishing 3 bases of Hoplites now, hopefully they will be completed by tomorrow.

It's great! I want to buy a viking's army in 6mm. But i don't know how to paint them. I never painted miniatures in 6mm.

Very very nice.

Its great to see 6mm stuff.  You've done some wonderful work.

Just finished my first 4 bases of 6mm Early Imperial Romans in 6mm.  I'll post pics sometime soon. 

Moving to such a small scale is certainly an adjustment and I needed to take some long breaks from the project because I was getting frustrated.  In the end I am really pleased with the effect I got. 

Seeing your vast armies has certainly given me some incentive to forge on.  Now I just need to paint a whole boatload of cav, auxilleries, archers and more legions just to get to about half of what you are able to field  lol.

Well that's standard creative self-criticism, but in reality you're doing just fine.
