6mm

Postby Hagen » Thu Sep 06, 2012 9:01 pm

Every now and again I get an itch for 6mm gaming pieces, while I can't find my terrain tiles (lost during the last move I guess :( ) I did find some of my armor. Note the quarter I used for scale but also notice some of the detail in these models. Models are from GHQ.

What about infantry you may ask, yes, I did find a tree of American infantry.

I also have M36's and Tiger1's but it just got to dark for pictures.

GHQ makes some good stuff. With a good paint job the little details really stand out. I haven't made the move into miniatures yet, but during the times I gave it serious thought, 6mm was running at the the top of my choices.

Many games can use 6mm/Micro-armour scaled miniature. Naturally, there is an excellent selection, and larger battles can economically viable.

Day off work today so I sent in an order to GHQ, going to give 6mm another try. So while I wait for my infantry figures and terrain maker hexs, I decided to make a village from some paper models I downloaded the last time I tried 6mm. This is what I got done this afternoon.

Here a pair of "plucky" GI's run out of the village church to take on a passing Panther!

Thanks Frizz! I was afraid I would find them to fiddly for my big hands but, I actually found it to be quite relaxing. Although it did have it's moments! :)
