Do you like these smaller scale armies as your preferred way of gaming on the tabletop?

6mm modern was something I dabbled in many years ago – it does allow for large units and great depth – not just the regular units but the interesting funky stuff like pontoon bridges, command centres, logistics and high altitude anti-air defence.

6mm wargaming, man that’d be some fiddly painting.

No they are easy to paint and can be painted really quickly to make and effective army. Its just a different technique to painting larger scale figures.

Well said Rob, i managed a DBA army in 2 weeks from bare metal to based and done.. and that was with ‘real life’ getting in the way as well! 🙂

wow, as awesome as they are, the fiddly painting would put me off. 6mm prepaints however and I’d be a very poor man…

6mm, the one true scale

I’d be interested in seeing their new battalion based ECW rules when they are ready. Always wanted a way in to this period but somehow yet another 28mm project doesn’t appeal. Perhaps this is the answer.

@bigdave There easy to paint. You just need to approach it slightly differently

Never tried 6mm but I could easily be persuaded by those models

Really sweet, I like the cinematic and epic feel of 6mm. Inclined to check it out, hate painting eyes on 28mm+ minis!

How do you maneuver 6mm battalions in the game? I mean, going forward is no problem, but I’d imagine if you want them to be in column redeploying somewhere else you’d need a separate base of guys in that formation.

in Black Powder we use 3x 20x20mm bases (8 minis per base in 2 ranks) and just form them into a column. Other rulesets such as ‘Honours of War’ use a nifty triangle/arrow marker you turn the unit sideways and put the arrow the direction of march..

Never went for them myself but I do vividly recall seeing a Hellenistic phalanx in the scale and it was the most realistic representation I have ever seen. I just wish my eyesight allowed me to paint them.

I’m always really impressed when I see this sort of 6mm stuff painted up, but I’ve never managed to maintain the motivation to do it myself

I love 3 and 6mm, it’s the way to go if you’re not squirmishing

Love Baccus figures, cast in such a way as to make them easy to paint and with a cracking basing system to make them pop. My WSS armies are feeling the need for reinforcements…

Beasts of War, you need to do more in 6mm scale.
NO they are not too small to paint
YES you can paint them, if you can paint 28mm you can paint 6mm.
YES they do look awesome en masse, you cant get that same ‘sweep’ with other scales..
YES you can use them for skirmish games too . .
YES it can fit BIG battles on a coffee table..

(Yes i do paint other scales than 6mm)..

Great to see 6mm on here, more more more!!
