So, I’ve been steadily building up WWII forces in 6mm for NW Europe for… oh, about ten years now. Indeed, some of my first batreps were 6mm WWII (https://blackhawkhet.blogspot.com/2013/08/an-old-battle-report-using-tfls.html). I started with them based, then I unbased them, then I re-based them, but this time in multiples (i.e., three vehicles per base), then I unbased them again. I played a few games with them (https://hakunamatatawars.blogspot.com/search/label/Battle%20of%20the%20Bulge), and that convinced me to, of course, re-base them. So I spent a small chunk of time this past weekend playing a few games (dogfights over the South Pacific, https://oldleadbreed.blogspot.com/2019/10/coral-sea-day-2-fight-6.html), then a large chunk of time re-basing these bad boys. I’m pretty happy with how they turned out, so I figured I’d share them. Again…
The whole shebang, Allies on the left, Germans on the right. I really did my best to make these look nice, bought a glue gun and stuck clump foliage on the bases, painted the edges of the bases green, labeled them with white paint. It took awhile to glue them on, flock, glue the foliage, paint the edges, and label them, but it wasn’t as bad as I expected, and I think it was worth it.
British infantry and Shermans move up, supported by Churchills.
While Pz IVs and a German Wpns Co hold on, Tigers in reserve.

Well, hope you like them, and, as wargamers, can empathize with all the re-basing pain. I hope to get these into action in Normandy ASAP, but have got some other projects in the hopper as well. Of course…

These look good.
Maybe add a little log for the mg teams to set up behind.
German tanks looks a little pink to me.
I like them in teh box, looks like a major maneuer group.

They look very pink on my screen, but it’s probably something to do with white balance etc.

Thanks, and no time for logs, I’m on to the next project!
They’re not as dunkelgelby as I’d like, too tan, but pink I suppose has got to be down to poor lighting.
