The Idea

The idea is to take Flames of War and replace the miniatures with 6mm ones while keeping the footprint the same. Infantry Squads become Platoons, Individual Tanks become Tank Troops and Companies become Battalion or Brigades.

A 15mm Tank is about the same size as a Flames of War Large Base so mounting tanks on a Large base shouldn't change anything.A 15mm Tank is about the same size as a Flames of War Large Base so mounting tanks on a Large base shouldn't change anything.
I'll try and base the tanks in their proper Troop size. Imagine the base with texture and some rocksI'll try and base the tanks in their proper Troop size. Imagine the base with texture and some rocks
The Concept
Granted this is 2/3rds of an Armoured Artillery Brigade. I might cut the artillery down to 2 SPG's per base (Four Bases being one Battery of an Armoured Artillery Brigade). Add some shell piles and other terrain to the baseGranted this is 2/3rds of an Armoured Artillery Brigade.

An example of a Late War idea. Not sure how to manage special guns in units, probably easiest to just designate one base as the An example of a Late War idea. Not sure how to manage special guns in units, probably easiest to just designate one base as the "Firefly Base" and when it dies the Firefly firepower gets taken out.
That's over 300 Points of Flames of War without upgrades and not counting the 50 Universal Carriers. Printed in an afternoon for maybe $10.That's over 300 Points of Flames of War without upgrades and not counting the 50 Universal Carriers. Printed in an afternoon for maybe $10.

I was blown away by the detail on the Priests. The helmets are wrong but at 6mm I don't really care.I was blown away by the detail on the Priests. The helmets are wrong but at 6mm I don't really care.
