Little Tiny Guys! 1/6000 Figurehead Naval Miniatures

Hi All...  just wanted to post a few photos of some 1/6000 miniatures that I just painted.  Overall, I think these are pretty good miniatures and they paint up pretty well.  I wish that their Destroyers were not cast on the bases, but given how small they are I guess I understand why.

Let me know what you think!

Royal Navy:  Ark Royal, Hermes, Eagle, and Argus
Kriegsmarine:  Scharnhorst and Gneisenau

I added the masts with a little brass...

Custom decals for the decks...

With bases... 

Wargaming Mats!!!

They say that "necessity is the mother of invention" and this has always been true for me.  I ended up designing a complete set of 1/2400 decals for GHQ Aircraft Carriers because no one produced them.  This week I tackled another project that has been bugging me for many years and I'm excited about the outcome!

I've always struggled with convincing terrain.  I have a love/hate relationship with GHQ Terrain Maker because they are not symmetrical and I'm tired of huge gaps...  I finally gave up on them a couple of weeks ago.  I figured Terrain Mats are my next best option because I just don't want to store a lot of custom made terrain.  A few years ago, I ordered 2 mats from a well-known Wargame Mat producer and his service was absolutely terrible; after several months of promises and waiting ("they are shipping tomorrow") I finally asked for and received a refund.  Not wanting to take that route again, I decided to try making my own.

Here are the results.  I have terrible lighting in my den so excuse the grainy photos...  I hope to have better photos in the near future.  Each Mat has a light hex pattern overlay and are actually quite detailed.  I'm very happy with the outcome and am planning to start on a slightly bigger design.  These are about 3.5 ft x 5 ft.

Let me know what you think!
