Not really very short sighted!!!! But after painting tons of 6mm have got the knack of painting 'small'!!!
I find it easier than 25mm!!!

Small aren't they? I've been looking for a 1:700 Battleaxe for a while, but it seems the only one is in resin- plastic manufacturers are hesitant with small ships. I like what you've done with the base, it's really important in these scales.

Incredibly small though very nicely executed. Can you explain the mother in law thing to an ignorant like me, please?

Very nice. The sea looks fantastic. But, like Michi, I didn't understand the "mother in law" :scratch: :scratch: :scratch:

Alright, got it now. Mine is a gem, I was at her birthday party yesterday and got fed with lots of Bratwurst. :grin: :grin: :grin:

From Wikipedia: As an LGBT symbol, the labrys (doublebladed axe/battleaxe) is also used to represent lesbianism and feminism.

Actually, there is a difference between the labrys/lavrys and a battleaxe (the latter can be single- or double-bladed).
