Shermans vs Tigers

I had some skytrex minis HoTT based a while ago, but since then I have found lots of interesting websites, such as this with too much inspiration to let my poor minis look like drybrush victims of a broom. I took some of them of their bases again, and gave them some real paintjob!
I begun with some base color, then a thin black wash, a second base color for the tigers, and a highlight before painting tracks and freehanding stars and crosses.

Too bad I can't seem to get good macro shots, I tried a lot of different lights, the sun is recharged and even then I cant really seem to get the real color on the pictures. Well, here they are, enjoy and remember, they are in 1/300 scale, a man is supposed to be 6mm next to these "beasts" (bugs?).

The tiger looks big when placed next to the sherman, but not when placed next to anyting else!

Small Town 2

I have begun to base some of the houses, more details to the bases will be added, but you can see how they are coming along now.

I have finished some more buildings that are awaiting bases, but these will be different as they will be situated in a town instead of the countryside.

Small Town

Damn! That 6mm bug really bit me.. And that GHQ has a lot of paper buildings for free on their website did'nt help either. On another 6mm site I found the inspiration I needed to give paper buildings a serious go. With a little nice basing I think they will be as good as any 6mm resin building, and cheaper!
I have just started, but I have quite a few more papers to cut and glue!

The bases are 1mm plywood, thanks dad!
