Hammurabi70 – was that asking me how I did the 6mm stuff? If so read below, if not ignore it and sorry for butting in!
For these I based 3 figures on each 30×30 MDF square. Used PVA and sand for the texture and to hide the edges of the bases a little. The sand I had sieved to make sure it was as fine as possible. A very basic dark brown base coat and then lightened twice to drybrush highlights, the second being mostly white but enough brown to discolour it slightly. The grass is 1mm static grass (from Serious Play on Ebay) and I used two different colours, one after the other to create some differences in tone.

Thanks; very useful. I am never very happy with my 6mm basing so I always want to know how people have done good looking basing!
Thank you! The method is pretty simple but I think gives a decent finish.
Nice Cave Mike!

For what it’s worth, Baccus sell finer sand and shorter static grass more suitable for 6mm figures. I agree with Gillies; finer material and grass looks better with smaller scale figures, but I’m too lazy to actually sift my sand! (And I suspect my wife might have words with me about the grit in her flour sifter)
(I quite the subtle touches of green and brown shading on the cave rock).05/06/2020 at 16:11 #13764428/06/2020 at 10:48 #138976

3mm fantasy. These are druids summoning a spirit army via human sacrifice. The spirit warriors’ green has since been further dulled down with a light grey drybrush.

Brilliant mix of underbrush on those tree bases.
Great banner on the elves! Freehand?
So, the genesis of a Gaslands gate from Pegasus Hobbies bits (5% finished), a 3D-printed toad (too small for use), some Wizard Eyes (95% finished), jetties (50% finished), Reaper bones (25% finished), Perry ACW converted to 2nd US sharpshooters (25% finished), Galsands terrain (25% finished), a stone wall made from left-over putty (never ending). One of those things was on the to-do list written in January.
I might finish those Wizard Eyes today.15/07/2020 at 21:50 #140421
Thanks, Muerto! The flag’s paint job is based around four Dom’s Decal American roundels in 1/700 scale. I WISH I could paint that small, that precisely. I stole the idea from Mathieu and Velvet Mark.

I got these ten days ago, so I’m guessing they don’t fit in the new ‘Postie’ thread?
Some entrenchements (and figures) for 15mm WW2 stuff. I’m reaming/filing the hole sizes to fit a (punched) 5/16″ figure base, hacking them up a bit to get more/mostly 2-man foxholes, and mounting them on .020″ styrene (garage sale sign stock). I also cut some in half(ish) to get u-shapes that I can tuck in behind figs to show them as being dug in behind/along an existing linear feature (like the hedgerow shown)
Next step is to go through the remainders of my figure stock to find volunteers to cut off at the waist…
