Hide and Seek

While looking on the excellent forum known as the Guild for any updates I stumbled across the previous Big Game reports from 2010 and 2011. Although in 20mm they provide a great deal of inspiration for 6mm games both in unit ideas and terrain ideas. Among the excellent AAR and photos there were some VDV with a link to Andy Rix's Cold War Gamer blog and after a few minutes admiring his work I came across this photo of a FAO. "Now theres an idea" I thought "Could I have a go in 6mm".

Andy Rix's fantastic FAO in 20mm

Now for the 6mm versions.

Both are based on a 2p coin with a couple of H&R figures. The bases were built up with filler and textured with Chinchilla Sand which is great for basing. Then the addition of some scatter (fine turf and static grass) and some tufts and leafy shrubs gives the impression of more cover. A couple of pins and some bits from the bits box for communications equipment etc and they are finished. I am pleased with the way they turned out and will continue with this method of representing FAO's in future Battlegroups.
