Starting a new skirmish fantasy project in 6mm, more here:

Hope it is of some interest.

I would be too tempted to add too many units if doing it in 6mm. I am curious, how big a battlefield do you plan to use? With the small warband footprint, I am reminded of microarmor battles versus larger scales, only with fantasy--showing an entire village and terrain around it on a 4x4 or even bigger terrain board.

It is easy to go crazy with 6mm as there is a wide range of options. I will play it on a 2 by 2 board using cm:s instead of inches. I did this with Pikeman's Lament (which is another ruleset in the Dan Mersey series) – two AARs here.

Nice…. I was thinking 15mm, without changing distances.

Now using these (and a fair few more) for a participation game this coming weekend at Joy of Six in Sheffield UK. More here if you are interested,
