A group shot of all my Late War (Normandy) Brits. Thats 6th Airbourne, 47 Commando and 7th Armoured. While most of it is painted, much of it I plan to return to at a later date and repaint to a higher standard.

Ive one commando section left to paint (+support weapons pack im yet to buy) ready for Overlord.

The Firefly's and Cromwell's are desperately in need of a repaint, I was far too heavy on the black wash (ALWAYS THIN IT FIRST!).

The Paras all need a repaint too (except the light blue platoon) because they were speed painted and I wanted to get painted stuff on the table. The Advantage is I can now go back a platoon at a time and still field a totally painted force.

I was looking through some of the fantastic Roman re-enactors over at romanarmytalk.com and noticed how shiny the legionary armour was, I dont know how that would degrade under marching/battlefield conditions, but id imagine even when grubby and bloodied the shine would still show through.

I decided I would experiment with NMM to see if i could recreate that shine, the base worked fine. I think I perhaps went too far with the dirtying it up that the effect is lost a little. What do you guys think? Im personally not a huge fan of the cartoony super clean NMM so I was hoping it could be made to look the best of both worlds. What do you guys think?

I think I will just go back to the metallics myself im not convinced.

This is my first time attempting NMM so I am struggling a bit with the basics.

So this is what the finished NMM Looked like...

Right before I repainted the armour with metalics.

I call is a semi success, I managed to pull off NMM, but I didn't like the look.

I think if I'm to attempt NMM on something again it should be a model that suites the style. I struggled to make it realistic and not cartoony.

I am trying to but I think 15mm has spoiled me. I think I will go back to painting 15mm romans, its much easier to paint a large unit and I think will look more impressive on the table. I love the models for Hail ceasar but the thought of painting more then one unit makes my cry. Perhaps I will come back to them another time.

No reason not to play HC in 15mm. The rules don't mind at all.
I actually have to say I quite like your NMM attempt. Maybe a mix between the two? I think full-on metallic looks 'a bit much' on miniatures. I also happen to know that, unless it's been treated or constantly maintained, those segmentata will start to dull down, not to mention rust, very quickly.

I am having the same feelings after having played games in 15mm for a few years now. I can't see myself going back to playing regiment sized games in 28mm, just too much to paint and too cluttered a table. 15mm large battles are perfect for a 6x4 table, and things paint up way faster and it is a lot cheaper to buy the miniatures.

It does seem to be a nice balance between reasonable detail (they are more then just blobs) but small enough that you can paint up a large unit in a session or two. I'd try 10mm or 6mm but I feel you lose too much of the detail and I already have the scenery for 15mm so it makes sense.

Check out Gruntz for 15mm sci-fi. Should be quite workable for Star Wars.
