    Extremely Small Dwarves

    I don't usually like to post non-reaper minis, but I painted these entirely with Reaper master series and high density paints, so I figured what the heck. The metallics by the way, are amazing. Best metallics ever, especially for the small scale enthusiasts because they are so fine. They are 6mm fantasy models, so the dwarves are a shade under 5mm tall: Dwarf Warrior closeup, keep in mind these guys are just hitting 5mm tall: Backside so you can see the nice chainmail work: A reason why my eyes are getting bad: Dwarf Brigade a bit closer: Some command group closeups:

    Massive 6mm project finished

    I am almost positive it is the Andromeda super heavy, the very last entry on this page: http://www.groundzerogames.co.uk/store1/commerce.cgi?product=DF&keywords=&cart_id=6512820.2039&exact_match=on&next=40

    6mm - 1/300th Sci fi

    Ok, I apologize for the crappy pics, I'll try to get my dark realm stuff out and get more pictures next week. Above we have (left to right) a GZG heavy tank (either a ganymede or andromeda hull, they are all about the same size with he demos being a but smaller), MicroWorld Kilgore Heavy tank, Brigade Models SAC Rhino MBT, and a MicroWorld Pilgrim IFV Above we have from left to right: Brigade Eurofed Gamelin tank, MicroWorld Trout MBT, Brigade Pacfed Cougar MBT hull (AA turret), Plasmablast medium tank, Brigade Eurofed LAV thing. Above left to right: Brigade tank, Microworld MBT, Brigade cougar hull, Plasmablast medium, Brigade LAV, Plasmablast light, GZG rattlesnake GEV, and GZG Puma grav tank The above is just some more comparisons of heavy and medium tanks.

    6mm - 1/300th Sci fi

    I know Chaos Orc has some stock left, but nothing new, and I don't think they plan to carry it anymore once the current stock is sold. I know the owner of Steel Crown is active over on the tactical command forums, people don't seem to have too much trouble ordering direct.

    6mm - 1/300th Sci fi

    You are quite spoiled for choice these days with 6mm scifi. Generally, some are a bit larger than others, but in a scifi setting, these things can be explained away by simply calling them "heavy" tanks, or making it characteristic of a particular race to have larger vehicles. With that being said, some manufacturers do fit better with eachother than others. Brigade Models (UK company), Ground Zero Games (UK company), and Plasmablast Games (Greek company) all fit well with one another size-wise, and all tend to be on the "smaller" end of the spectrum. Some of their vehicles are large, but if they are, they will be noted as being "heavy" tanks or some such. On a side note, I have ordered from all of these companies and they all have great product and good customer service. For the larger end of the spectrum we have Steel Crown Productions (UK company) Exodus Wars line, Dark Realm Miniatures (UK Company), Game Workshop Epic, Battletech (I think its 6mm), and a small but soon to be growing line from MicroWorld Games (full disclosure, I own and operate MicroWorld out of the US). In the case of Dark Realm though, you will find that the lighter tanks tend to match exactly with the regular MBT's of the smaller spectrum companies listed above. For my own part, my stuff is a little bigger only because the designer made them that way, and I think sometimes armor looks a bit small to actually realistically fit 6mm humans into it. Other companies that will be releasing stuff soon are Rebel Minis and Spartan Games (Firestorm Invasion). I can't speak to the Spartan stuff, but I'm sure the Rebel stuff will likely match better with the "smaller" spectrum. Late tonight I should get some free time, I will snap an overhead shot of my stuff next to Brigade, GZG, Plasmablast, and Dark Realm stuff.

    Massive 6mm project finished

    Thanks everyone! Yup,they are all GZG with the exception of the air support, which is obviously CAV. I did have grand plans of adding static grass and highlighting the basing of the infantry, but I ran out of steam.
  8. The smaller scale CAV aircraft work great with 6mm scifi. Looking forward to seeing what new stuff is in store also. This project is finally done, and I am super excited to never paint another one of these tanks again! The whole shebang: Right side: Left side: Here is a Power armor closeup because I like the way they came out: Tanks profile shot: The last 6 minis I painted for the project, finished 2 hours ago:

    Star Wars! Nothing but Star Wars!

    If 6mm mass combat miniatures for star wars came out, my family would have to stage an intervention for me to break my addiction to tiny snowtroopers and AT-AT's.

    Lots of CAV fliers

    Thanks for the comments everyone! @Chrome They are plastic stands, and surprisingly, the lynx are pretty stable. I actually connected them all with tiny magnets, and will say, the lynx are just a tad too heavy for such a small magnet, but they got the job done. I'm just forever dropping things on flight stands and I hate when the little tabs break off.

    07012 Regent CAVs

    Awesome camo on those, great job!

    Lots of CAV fliers

    I'm working on a large 6mm grav force from GZG. I settled on using some of the non-N scale CAV fliers for air support. I really could have spent more time on the canopies, but to be honest, I am sick of the project and am at the point where I want it finished. I'm literally over 100 tanks deep and like 30 infantry stands, so I basically never want to see this color scheme or camo ever again. Anyone else ever overbuy? Some kikyus: And lynxes which came out a bit better:

    6mmish large combat game

    It really depends on what size battles you are looking for. I like future war commander, but each unit down to the lowliest light tank has multiple hits and a healthy amount of attack dice, so you have to keep track of them each turn. The game would probably bog down with large numbers of models. There is an option though where you have fixed commands (as in certain units formed into a group that are always commanded together) and where hits don't regenerate automatically at the end of each turn. I haven't tried it yet to see how much faster it plays that way though. Other than dirtside and FWC there is surprisingly little out there for 6mm games with unit creation rules. Prophecy of War is interesting, but there aren't really any unit creation rules per se, just all generic units. I always thought that Epic 40k would make a good generic rule system (the one with the firepower tables)...but there is also no unit creation system for that one either.

    Large 6mm scifi force

    I'm working on the opposition to these guys now, about 120 or so vehicles all told. I wish reaper would make the CAV vehicle design rules public...the damage track system would be great in 6mm for differentiating between superheavies and what not.
