    Hullo all,

    I normally post either on the ol’ blog or on LAF but thought I should probably cross post my 6mm here really.

    Anyway, just tidied off a new Horizon Wars force – 18FP – I’ve been collecting 20FP forces (I don’t like to revisit a painting project for fear of colour inconsistency) but I did my maths a bit wrong so this one is only 18FP!

    Heavy Artillery

    Heavy Infantry

    P1 Mechs

    Couldn’t fit the whole gang in the light box, so here they are in their tray:

    Whole Force

    To be honest they’re not my best work – the weathering is, frankly, crap but it’s nice to have them finished.

    I’ve got some ideas I’m playing with for a vaccsuits force (possibly based on lunar style bases) and an order from Angel Barracks I placed yesterday that’ll form the backbone of an SF3D force.

    So, more to come soon(ish). There’s a few other 6mm bits on the ol’ blog too for those interested.

    Those are lovely. 

    Is it just me, or do the man shaped ones look like they are rollerskating?

    They are cool, thanks for sharing.
    I have just packed your order and will head to the post office in a bit.

    Looking forward to what you do with them.

    Cheers – can’t wait! Might take me a little while, I want to do justice to an SF3D style project (’cause it’s my favourite!) so I’ll rush them a bit less than these!

    Ooh, now those are some cool figures with cool paintjobs! I’d be afraid of going that heavy on the weathering but it does look good in the end.

    …but now I can’t stop thinking that the battlesuits / power-armoured figures do look like they’re rollerskating

    Nice work. I think you have the weathering right for 6mm. Those quad walkers would make excellent bots in 15mm.

    Rollerball with mechs?

    I think you might be on to something there…

    For what it’s worth, “skating” mechs are a thing.

    These look amazing. I love seeing other people’s work. I love the tone of the green.

    Not at the mo – I’ve got a gang of your Junker tanks on the go, but not ready to show yet… I’ve been distracted by ‘un-abandoning’ some 15mm pulp sci fi ideas I had. Plus the million other distractions on my desk at the mo.

    Great work!
    Say, where are those power suits and the quads from?

    Cheers – both from Onslaught (via Vanguard Minis). Their ‘not-Tau’ range (Okami Technology something or other?)

    ‘iya,

    I might not have much new to show but I have been prattling about with these

    So far they’re based and basecoated – I’ll be making them much lighter and giving the doors a tint so they stand out but they’re getting there. I need to make a tool that’s a small sponge but still rough for the next few painting layers.

    They’re by no means amazing, but I’m pleased with them, add a bit of flavour to the style of sci-fi I’m trying to capture with my 6mm.

    Nice!

     

    Something about them remind me of heads of the God Warriors from Naausica…  I like them, lots of personality

    It’s funny you should say that because I’ve got this saved as a terrain reference pic:

    and I was just thinking how these aren’t that far off if I wanted to make some like that. I take any reference to Nausicaa as a massive compliment!!!

    Cheeky plug for myself…

    I will do commission work if people need it.
    I can mould and cast your masters or make the masters and mould and cast them for you.
    Just incase that is of use?

    Love those buildings!

    They would be great for something like the Ikwen from loud ninja games although I can’t think of anything similar in 6mm.

    Hmm…    may have to add that to my to do list.

    Thank you! Well I am working on some 15mm ones too – I love those Ikwen models but I wish there was some more options, close combat and command figures. Maybe some bows or hunting rifles.

    I’ve got a few packs of these on the way http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/product-category/onslaught-miniatures/avians/ to populate this village. You’re right though, could do with a good 6mm irregular alien force.

    I just bought some of those avians too but I only got the ones with wings. I’ve got this crazy idea for a cross between a pueblo village and swallows nests hanging from a cliffside or maybe a series of monument valley style buttes.

    Really like these they look great. Never tried weathering but these look great.

    As for those building, if they ever became commercial I would buy a tonne of them. They are awesome.

    Tally-Ho!

    If/when these go commercial I definitely would be interested.

    They’d make great buildings for a Quar village, especially in the deserts.

    Hi all,

    Sorry, neglected this thread a bit. Not done a huge amount on these but I am trying to source some weird brightly coloured sponge to turn into foliage – no joy yet though.

    I’m working on Entries for the lead painting league over of LAF at the mo – there will be a 6mm entry so once that’s done I’ll post it here.

    You can always buy plain white/ivory/tan sponge and hit lightly with spray paint so you can still see some of the interior base color through the pores.  Of, you could dye them one color, and lightly spray the outside so you get all sorts of tones.

    Sorry, missed this reply – that’s a great idea. Somewhere out there in Google-land you’ve reminded me that there’s a great tutorial on that very thing – then using a blender to chop up.

    I’ll dig it out.

    Hiya all,

    Well, I’ve daubed some paint on some 6’s for the first time in ages – I’m currently working on an idea for an Ork Warz! project using my custom units for Horizon Wars and some of the excellent Defeat in Detail Skinnerz – the idea is it will be a kind of mass battle-Gorkamorka type vibe.

    Having said that, I felt a bit guilty about some other 6mm stuff I hadn’t finished, so got to work

    6mm Tau

    This battlegroup is 5 Pathfinders, 5 Recon squads (3 men – a sniper, a spotter and a drone on a smaller base), 5 light skimmers and 3 small mechs. Depending on what units I use them as in HW it’ll give me about 25-30P, more than enough for the 15P games I’ve got planned. Scuse the glossiness – my new basing formula involves a glossy homemade ‘glaze’ that’ll get matted off at the end. More to come soon I hope.

    Fantastic work mate! Looks like a really simple colour scheme, that you’ve smashed out of the park.

    What size bases have you used for the Onslaught infantry in your last post?

    #70289

    Sorry mate, missed this – if I remember correctly they’re 35×25 (possibly 40×25) – 2mm MDF from warbases. It’s big when you compare it to a strip or smaller circular base by I like the scope it gives for a sense of movement and for basing.

    Those guys look awesome, the rebel pilot colors really suit them 🙂
