Hi all!
After a long time lurking I think its time I posted my humble amateurish offerings! I will be posting 6mm sci fi 6mm historicals and terrain in absolutely no sensible order! Please don't hesitate to constructive criticism of my painting and photography skills!

Those are looking pretty nice there, well done. They have a very gritty feel to them. I have a bunch of those steel legion to paint as well but Tyranids are getting in the way at the moment.

Did you not want to go for mechanised companies?

I think you're doing yourself a great disservice. These look very good indeed! Keep 'em coming!

Oh, and welcome to the forum! :)

Thanks for the replies!
They are excellent sculpts that boost my shoddy painting skills!
I do want some armoured elements but looks like I have missed out on them unless I win some on eBay!
Am I allowed to double post? I'm only allowed 5 pics per post but I have loads of historical pics to share!
Thanks again for looking!

Post away! :)

as to mechanized elements:
-plentiful chimeras appear on eBay and usually not so silly prices though YMMV.
-Go with 3rd party models

I'd suggest you check out Exodus Wars, Dark Realm Miniatures, Onslaught Minis, Trouble Maker Games, and Microworld Games and see if any of their IFVs speak to you.

Nice one!
Like the basing technique, very simple but effective!

Does the African infantry come in 'double strips' or did you place them in this tight line?

Thanks for the comments! The African infantry come in single strips of 4 like regular infantry instead of skirmishers? Hope that helps! Next up should be some pics of the excellent Microworld dread elf spearmen!

Hi everybody!
These have been finished for 3 weeks now but my newborn sons is really enjoying not sleeping at the minute! They are excellent Microworld dread elves they paint up easily and very fast!

These are based on baccus 60x30 bases and I think I'm going to use each base as 1 Warmaster unit with 3 wounds if that makes sense! Next up is some imperial armour for the steel legion! If my son ever goes to sleep!
Thanks for looking!

Thanks! They do look a bit lonely on the big bases! I think for irregular troops I won't base them as neat! If I had more time or if I didn't have 100 different projects to finish I would have liked 3 ranks and command! But I'm still happy with them!
