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,

..a real mixture of 6mm makers!

Can you explain the 3-2-1 basing? I'm not familiar with the rules, but the concept of 6mm skirmish sounds fun!

Kealios, sorry I missed this question.
I got the concept from here dalauppror.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/123-basing.html . It is a way to minimize the number of bases but still allowing removal of "casualties/individual models". E.g. a unit have 6 figures based on three bases, one with 3 models, one with 2 models and one with 1 model. When a model is lost take away the base with one model, the next round maybe another model is lost. Take away the base with two models and put the one model base back (4 model remains). I find it especially useful for the smaller scales. All the best.

Thanks Richard, I really like your range and the new Forest Goblins looks great and that Orc Boss too. / Per
