1:72 scale? Don't mind if I do.

I added a tab to ETC trooper number one. Number two is also getting one as well as Ariel Sharon 1973 who's been sitting on a cork up until now. 

I'm working on a 1/72 scale guy. I want to do also another 1/64 and a 1/35. I think I put too much pressure on myself to get everything perfect awesome and got very frustrated when it was just "good". I'm going to switch on learning mode again and see how I can grow. I'm still making another 1/64 man, though, so I'm not out of the count.

I think maybe 1/72, what I'm assuming is the colloquial 20mm scale, might be a good way to go. There are a lot of modern 1/72 models available that are inexpensive. Also, there are a lot of models available in this scale. Another thing is 1/72 let's you field more guys, or use less space. On the other hand they're more tiny and fiddly. Harder to convert and paint. Maybe they can be used with multiple units per base.

There are also models in 1/35, I want to try and see what a 1/35 guy turns out like. A lot more room for expression in this scale but is it too big for playing with? Also, your other wargaming minis won't fit.

I'd like the player to have the ability to mix and match with stuff he already has or likes from other lines.

25mm tall

Making slow progress also on my illustration. Here's another sneak preview. Again a work in progress so don't judge too harshly.

Comment or whatever.
