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.
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.
