Logilistics Sci fi 6mm

As it is now approaching 7am It is too early to take any photos. So The Zulus will have to wait a few days s I can do a group shot of them all. So Zulu Sunday. I should imagine.

So Instead here are some 6mm (1/300th scale ) Sci fi goodies for my Frozen planet setting.

With all of these I have used the camo I am using for the Chinese Democratic Socialist Union (CDSU). Which amounts to blue and grey rectangles over a white base colour and a dark blue was to pick out the detains.

First up we have 4 armoured cars By Ground Zero Games. I may have the turrets on back to front, or I may not, I just do not know. These will have a duel role. 1 convoy protection. 2 Scout transportation. In my head I can justify the 2 scout stands being carried in 2 armoured cars. So that would work for me and give any foot scouts a bit more punch on the table top.

And 2 scout stands each of 2 figures. (Scouts should not be clustered!) These are spare infantry figures from Brigade Models. Both are carrying suitably man sized weapons but their main purpose is to find the enemy.

Finally 6 trucks. 4 have flat beds and are used to carry a variety of goods. Everything from bullets to bull dozers. And probably a load more than that as well. Just assume nearly everything you would need to survive and thrive on a frozen planet.

The other 2 trucks (All trucks are Brigade Models) are an office body. You are more than happy to make up what the office does. It may be an ambulance or it could be a forward command post or it may just be a warm place for all the drivers to grab a hot beverage. I don't know and I am sure it will change as scenarios evolve!

The last truck is a liquid transporter.  As to what the liquid is I am more  than happy to also leave that to your imagination. Maybe fuel, maybe drinking water or maybe even gold fish I don't know and it will probably also vary with time and scenarios. I will assume the ground crews either keep it to a single cargo or have a very good way of cleaning it between loads.

That is it for today. I do have some more 1/300th Sci Fi already painted for next week. But I want to show all the Zulus on Sunday.

With that I will sign off wish you all a very good and productive couple of days ALL the very best from Clint

    1. Thank you Ray. I know Sci Fi is not your thing. As you know Napoleonic is not my thing. Each to their own.

    1. Thank you Fran. I actually have never played "Epic!". The figures cost too much and the armies can be a bit blah in my opinion.

    1. Thanks Andy. 6mm is actually easer to paint than 28mm, less time less effort and less paint.

    1. Thanks Michael. The colours are so simple, Base white then blue rectangles then mid grey rectangles very occasionally over lapping or touching and finish with a dark blue wash to get in all the nooks and crannies.

  7. It's gratifying when you get to the stage that you can build and paint up all the supernumerary for a force isn't it ?
    Camo still looks good and at 6mm I wouldn't worry about the turrets' direction - they're turrets after all!

    1. Thanks Joe. I am not worried about the turret direction. They are all facing the way I think looks good. I do stick my turrets down though as at 6mm when they come off they can fall out of any container and so fixed turrets make sense to clumsy people like me.
