Geeeeez....you guys are a bad influence! :twisted:

It's like a friend that showed me N-scale trains when he knew I was an HO nut. Can't get the little buggers out of my mind!

Its been a few years since I purchased anything in 6mm but I'm sure they haven't changed much since then. The GHQ stuff is generally more pricey than other minis but their quality is usually better too, much better in some cases.

I've heard of the GHQ stuff over the years but I've still yet to see any of their, or any micro-armor-style pieces up close and personal like. I see definite advantages to the concept, though; much as I do N-scale trains.....more room, more stock, less storage (potentially, that is)!

Here's my church being based, the hedges are green chenille (Pipe cleaners) coated with white glue and coated with ground work material.

The church is paper downloaded a few years ago when I still had a printer. I white glue the buildings to cheap paper plates, the kind that, if you did actually try and use them for food you would need 5 or 6 stacked together. :D For the most part I can bend the corners nice and sharp by using a #11 x-acto blade.

The base is some old scrap styrene sheet I had laying around. I just use regular old white glue for everything.

Paint the base

Flock and add the hedges.

Thank you Em. Right now I'm having fun with 6mm but, I still have a bunch of very little soldiers to paint. I think I'll at least get a start on them this weekend.

Well got started today, these pictures really help me see what I missed. I didn't forget the hands I'll do them last. This is 1 of 6 frames I started on.

Ah, the miracle of assembly line painting......
