6mm Sci Fi Infantry part 1

I finally got around to photographing my painted 6mm infantry. I am really pleased with how they came out. It took me 2 hours to paint 15 of them. I have another 15 primed and waiting to be finished. You can see I attempted to make squad leaders identifiable by their shoulder pads, but from the distance I will be looking at them from, they can't be seen. As such, some of my primed troops are based on pennies, making them easily visible from wargaming distance.

Sci Fi Dwellings rolling off the bench.

Work has begun on my 6mm sci fi project. I have found the time this week to have three modelling sessions. This post will showcase some of the fruits of those sessions.

Below are three dwellings. I was inspired by the Lars homestead on Tatooine, but did not want to commit to a desert planet. The buildings are just the screw caps of baby food pouches, separated and made to look like living quarters and a chimney of some kind. I think the chimney will actually be a kind of solar power generator or something. Also to keep things generic I based them on grey rock. I feel like they need more details, like doors and such, but that can come later. I would happily put these on a table as they are.

My aquarium plants are giant trees. I am basing them on various bases that I got in my Reaper Bones kickstarter. I can probably use these with other scales too. You can also just see some of my infantry. Unfortunately my camera ran out of battery before I could take pictures of them. I will charge it tonight and take some shots tomorrow.
