Infantry - Foot/Motor/Mech
« on: 12 January 2018, 22:36:56 »
GHQ models, but 6 mm scale and quite honestly look and work great for battletech

German modern infantry
US Cougar 4x4 APC
German Puma IFV

Respectively on the bases.

That will work nicely.  Great job there.  8)

Good stuff. I was looking at GHQ for some motorized / mechanized infantry and that’s exactly the size I hoped they’d be

Wowza! What a tidy paint job. Absolutely beautiful work. Can't believe the detail on those troopers.

Those all look great! How does the Puma IFV compare size wise to CBT vehicles?

Quick pictures sorry for the quality.  Compared against a 40 ton Myrmidon

Not to bad compared to the Myrmidon. Based on that I would say somewhere in the 25 to 30 ton range. Something to look at for militia forces possibly.

LOVE the 6mm GHQ minis, but their 6mm and IWM's use VERY different rulers for scale and sadly the GHQ minis look soooo tiny comparatively.  :(

Those look truly great!


Though, I do think its more like Foot/Wheeled/Tracked.
Motorized isn't supposed to be big enough to hold the entire squad in 1 vehicle & have a turret on top, its dirt bikes & side cars.

Very nice! I like the GHQ minis for infantry too. I use some U.S. HMMWVs for motor and German Fennek for Mech.

@Domi1981 yes those look like the miniatures.  I ordered right from ghq directly.
