Brigade Models Pacific Federation Scifi Gallery
This the first Science Fiction army I have completed in 6mm scale. I was attracted to the Brigade models designs initially through the Iron Cow rules (but never played them) and some of the other Brigade ranges. I like the clean and simple designs of these models and the futuristic look as opposed to the WW1/steampunk of a major player. While there is a lot of other great ranges out there, some were not complete or not easily accessable so I went with these.
The colour scheme was about the third attempt to get it right. I used a yellow/brown colour from Gunze and sprayed the models with an airbrush. The yellow part of the vehicles were given a light creamy drybrush and then followed with a thin black/brown wash, but it isn't very noticeable due to the lack of recesses or raised bits on the model. The brown part is a GW colour (Bestial brown I think) and I added metallic highlights with a Vallejo blue metalic colour. The vehicles have thin vertical stripes to denote the arm of service eg infantry, artillery, armour and command.
The vehicles are all based on Flames of War small bases with holes drilled into the model and the base. A metal pin was used to attach the model to the base but sometimes the models pivot on the base and it is a bit weak mounting method. The infantry are on 40x20mm Plasticard bases which seems to be a good stand size for most scifi systems.
