Awesome idea.

Now the concept of a 6mm FF-style force is running through my head, though.

Chocobo-knights facing off against clockwerk goblin mechs.

Ages ago somebody mentioned the idea of a Exalted 6mm force. Very much a FF style there also.

That's something I've been chewing over as a wargame idea but I'll have to think on it more.

You should definitely find some chocobo models from somewhere and try posing them with Miyazaki knights on. I think it'd look excellent.

Chocobo? You mean Horseclaws right.  :D

Talking about horseclaws, I'm trying hard to track down the Nausicaa manga's since they appear to have more back-story and creatures.

Of course, horseclaws. Final Fantasy definitely wasn't "inspired" by these. :p

They're pretty easy to find online.

Just thinking on that, you could probably get 28mm chickens and use them as 10/15mm mounts. 6mm might be a bit too small though (15mm chickens, maybe? do they even exist?).

Found a friend who has it and will met me borrow it. Might still buy it if its any good.

In any case, first model painted! Just a quick test, I think I might want to mix some brighter red/pink for these guys. I used the old GW scab red, and realized I have two pots of it lying around, one pretty low so I might as well mix that up for this one.






"Group shot" the current grand total of what I have painted for this project.  lol


Reference material.


These irregular sculpts are pretty big, close to 8mm even. Not a problem, but I might do that print at 15% size increase now.

Yes, I think a bigger tank would work better  :)

Maybe do a simpler version but at that 'size'?

cheers

Wouldn't it always.  lol

But yea, I think a MK2 might be in order, I might end up with three size classes of tank in the end anyway, I think I want something like a ft17 for this also.

Now I'm curious what exactly has been on your wish list specifically.


In the mean time I've also started collecting a list of models to use for my bugs, I spotted these guys on the 15mm facebook group, I think they might work as ranged support for me. Their faces are nice and greebly like the bugs in nausicaa.

I've been trying a bit on an airship. This is really a rough sketch, I should put pencil to paper first really but my hand drawing is terrible so I ofthen prefer to sketch in CAD. I'm pleased with the wings, the body shape isn't that great though. Complex curves, always complex curves.  o_o

Looks good so far  :)

Quite possibly loose the front 'bridge' and change the top somehow  ???

cheers

Most of the howl airships have the bridge, and I kind of like it, though I might shrink it down a bit and make it more of a deck like on some. I'll probably scrap the entire fuselage it has been stretched and bend and twisted to the point of breaking with very little actual results. I should probably start with sharp edges and round them when I'm done, rather then trying to fit the round shapes to them.

Still I like the flappy action on the wings.  :D
