I have recently started 6mm wargaming for both Cold War and WW2 and I would love to have a go at campaigning in this scale (I have never played a campaign before) I need some info on whats avaliable.

Ideally I am looking for something thats somewhat 'freeform' i.e. not a set number of battles that progresses like a story, I am thinking more along the lines of a 'campaign' map of Europe where you move your forces around and then engage the enemy, thus resulting in tabletop battles. Kinda like Risk in that sense!

Thanks in advance
Rob

Thee are not many published campaign rules. Most people I know write their own.

Uber fast reply!

That was what I was thinking I might have to do, any links to free 'homemade' sets would be appreciated though.

Take a look at Operation & Objectives: designed originally for Rules of Engagement, can be simply converted for any ruleset actually…

Command Decision had a nice set of campaign rules. Not quite the grand scale as you are describing, but it did allow for operations over a few days.

Use a board game to set up the battles. Those old SPI quad games are perfect, counters represent battalions. Decision Games is reissuing them, so they are not too pricey.

Platoon Forward by Too Fat Lardies is well worth checking out .

There's a really good site for Spearhead (WW2) and Modern Spearhead campaign and scenario generation.

It's at:
link

There's a pdf there describing it.

It's pretty flexible and can be adapted for most rules.

What do you mean by campaign rules? Rationally wargames become board games when the ground scale becomes too disparate. Rg when 1 figure represents 1 platoon. Do you meen a continental war? Is that what you want or is it really a series of interconnected games representaing say the advance of a single unit. That is a sort of Band of Brothers type scenario?
