6mm Charity Painting Project

I have been following the blog of the prolific painter and wargamer of 6mm models, particularly following his Great Northern War and Scånian War games.

Recently Per announced that he was starting a project which now involves 45 wargamers each painting a small unit of Baccus 6mm soldiers from the 1690s to a pattern to create the fictitious armies of Denswe and Siarus.

The armies will be used for a wargame or two and then sold in aid of the Combat Stress charity.

I was allocated a unit of horse for the army of Denswe and my guidance was “blue coats and straw cuffs”.  I only had to paint nine cavalrymen, but over the last few days I have done my best, and far above any previous efforts.

Compared to some other examples mine are mediocre at best, but here they are:

  1. I reckon they look pretty good. I just have to tell myself that I am painting at 6mm, but photographing at 40mm!

    And it’s a great cause.
