I couldn't wait any longer and bought Adler WW2 (already a year ago) and Irregular vehicles and started my WW2 6mm-project in December. (Sorry Peter! I betrayed you!).

WW2 6mm is often quite dark and similar. Because I want my miniatures to stand out, just like my 6mm Napoleonics, I experimented with what I call 'Hollywood B-Movie-basing', lighter colours, exaggerated uniform differences, flags, markings, scenic basing and oversized decals. As the Baccus painting guide here recommends, a "rethink of techniques and methods".

Full blog with pictures, reviews, tricks here. My short WW2 6mm vehicle and uniform painting guide here. I share it here because I hope the techniques are useful for Baccus customers who are more patient than I am.
