6mm Vietnam (part 1)

So it appears I did get side-tracked after all!

A new venture for me this time round, and whilst I did play 20mm Vietnam skirmish for a number of years this is the first time at 6mm and at Company level rather than Platoon.

For rules, I have gone with Too Fat Lardies - "Charlie don't surf" rules and I am really enjoying reading them so far, though I've yet to game with them.

As for miniatures, I somewhat reluctantly went with GHQ, reluctant purely because they are far more expensive than H&R for eg. However I figured I wouldn't need a great deal of infantry and very few vehicles and GHQ has a specific Vietnam range, so they won out in the end.

I haven't painted many so far but wanted to paint up a platoon to see how they would look on the table and here are the results:

Well that's it for this time, definitely Old West next on the agenda.

Gruntz - 15mm Sci-fi Project (4)

More 15mm Sci-fi this time, almost there with this project and after this batch I am taking a break to do some other stuff for a while.

I have now received and painted up my Critical Mass Games Mech thus completing my Ventauran force, I have tried to keep its paint scheme in line with the rest of the Ventaurans and I am reasonably happy with how its turned out:

So with the Ventaurans out of the way, back to their opponents my Army faction, and this time round I have added several heavy weapons teams and a medic team (minis from GZG):

 (I really need to re-do the red cross as the wash has overly obscured it!)

Finally, I have added this nice Middle Eastern compound from Blotz which with some odds n ends and some old GoT vents etc rounds out my collection of buildings:

A complete change next time as I am concentrating on my small 6mm Old West project, providing that is I don't get too distracted by my latest new shiny toys - GHQ's 6mm Vietnam range!
