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

Go small scale minis for larger scale battles. This makes so much sense.

Maybe my ECW pipedream should be 6mm

Thats crazy scale. Woudl they even stay in those relative positions in a battle, or would the blocks of men move around each other?

I think if I went to 6mm figures it would be to play ancients. I would just want to see absolutely massive armies of them on the tabletop.

I’ve always liked the Baccus stuff, and others have said, they are in many ways simpler to paint than the larger scale stuff, and in many ways more forgiving. The WW2 stuff looks lovely, but I think in this scale it’s hard to beat the look of massed units.

Wow those are awesome. I’m surprised that I could pick out that much detail. Lovely.

Sooooo tiny! I can imagine painting needing a fine brush and a magnifying glass!

The 6mm figures are just a little small.

THIS is the right way to do 6mm.

NOT scaling bases down but using the same footprint with LOTS more models.

I’ve always wanted to do pike&shot armies in 8×8 blocks like you see in contemporary illustrations.

Wow, that’s very cool for 6mm. I’m saying impressive a lot xD but everything is so amazing.
