Have to say 1/6 scale my favourite scale, it lends it self so well to replicating real world objects, (when done well). In saying that I also enjoy collecting 1:12 scale (SH Figuarts & Mezco produce some fantastic figures. Just got Mezco Punisher fig, fantastic…just fantastic).
1/18 scale holds a special place in my heart (and i imagine some of you as well). Its the star wars figure scale & Action force (uk) USA Gi-Joe.
Some people called Marauder Gun Runners are currently producing some fantastic scales 1/18 figures & accessories. Loved reading business history, all people involved are firstly fans of 1/18 figures, came together because no one really delivering a good 1/18 product, ie weapons in correct scale and figures.
I have taken some of their base PMC figures and made camo transfers. Applied transfers to bodies/helmet/webbing pouches. Transfers worked really well, modern transfer paper really nice and slim and fixed well against plastics. Parts that bend , knees elbows etc, I just painted on camo pattern - easy really finding correct colour match the hardest part.
Made some DIY slings, painted some heads & changed headset type. They do an over head headset. Unfortunately its so large u cannot fit a helmet over, so I cut off headset parts and fixed them onto helmet rails. Which is a popular real world look these - end of day worked out well I thought. Rifles mostly from shapeways seller who does really nice 1/18 HK rifles. Maruader do very nice rifles as well.
4 x figures UK special forces wearing mtb European camo.
Gurkha knife show they still get scale wrong sometimes, they have done the same with tactical axe, gutted.
1 x figure French army in arid camo & 1 x french in western Euro camo - both are works in process I am awaiting parts order
They do dogs as well
Basically I can replicate most special forces, simply take their basic figures/accessories and produce a scale down camo transfer.
They will soon be launching WW2 stuff. I put my name down on their WW2 kickstart last year so any day know expecting 70 to 80 WW2 figures to land (Brits/US/German & russian mix).
Finally scale picture, BIG brother.
