Ebay haul arrived. Tiny, tiny bits of metal - a future 6mm project?

Not too long ago I have bid on some micro armour tanks from CinC and GHQ on ebay. To my surprise I won the auction for a reasonable price. I have always wanted to know how good these rather pricey GHQ models really are. To put the long talk short: they are insanely good and crisp casts, given their size. I also bought some CinC models to compare, since GHQ is really expensive compared to other manufacturers of modern micro armour. I think they are also pretty nice models. I don't know what I am going to do with these, probably test Battlefront's Team Yankee with them? Or Cold War Commander?
