6mm – First Figures

Got the first couple of strips of 6mm skellies painted for the boy’s medieval force.  He asked for a main color of purple, but wasn’t sure what secondary color would work best.  This is a bit of a test strip to see if a second primary color is even necessary.  Throwing a lot of flashes of colors into the mix might be all that’s necessary.

The conventional wisdom is that smaller figures require brighter colors, but I’m not convinced.  These troops look a little too cartoonish for me.

Also starting to consider photography strategies for the teeny-tinies.  Zooming way in just won’t work the way it does with the larger 15mm and 25mm figures.  Using the nickle for scale forces the camera away and gives a pretty decent tradeoff between showing enough detail and showing what they’ll look like on the table.
