This web site is about Wargaming using 6mm (also called 1/300th) scale figures in a variety of periods.
I hope to continue expanding the site into new periods and add some more articles on areas like terrain making and scratch building or converting figures and reviews. This site has reasonably regular updates so please check back here and let me know if you have any comments or corrections about this site.
The whole web site been rewritten a few times as I learn more about web development and try to keep up with new technologies, however this is a not my profession so I try to keep it simple.
If you have any questions or comments please email me
6mm allows for a mass battle look and a more realistic
ground scale. Units actually look like units rather than squads.
Painting a 6mm army is much quicker than larger scales. I can paint a unit of 24 figures quicker than a single 28mm figure.
The cost per base and army is better value than larger scales so you can
have bigger armies or more of them.
The amount of space required to store armies and terrain
6mm figures are much easier and faster to paint especially
if you use the 2ft rule. (no blending or subtle layering techniques
Conversions and scratchbuilding is much easier. Also it is
easy to paint figures up to represent another troop type in this scale.
I've renamed this section as there has been stuff listed in this section for years! Coming soon didn't seem appropiate anymore
New sections planned for the website are - WW2, Dark Ages and Franco-Prussian war and a couple of surprise projects which I somehow purchased. There has been a bit of work completed on these already, and I intend to expand the WW1 and Napoleonics sections.
More and better reviews of 6mm relevant wargaming pieces.
A question I get asked a lot is how to make xyz and what would you recommend for xyz? I have planned a bunch of quick and easy terrain making tutorials. In the future I will most likely expand this to include painting tutorials once I am happy with the level of my own painting.
