Love to get me into some 6mm ww2 gaming, however, I absolutely cannot stand making terrain. Unless there was a cheap, decent and inexpensive pre-made terrain, I'm here asking you all if 6mm mini's can be played on board game type terrain? If so, let's see those pics! :)

Isn't that in essence what Memoir 44 is? You can buy map sets for games like that and Squad Leader

ASL boards are an option, though I prefer them for 2mm. If you can get your hands on a Deluxe Ogre, you get 40mm(?) hex boards and a stack of individual 40mm card hexes to change said boards.

What size are those Memoir '44 hexes? Another instance where just a little standardization--three or four common hex terrain sizes--would be a big help.

Streets of Fire was a Deluxe ASL. The hexes are 2.2" across instead of the normal .8" or so. It was made for playing the game with GHQ microarmor.

Something you can do is take the ASL boards in vasl and blow them up for a printout.

Just use some kind of cut cloth to represent whatever you want.

You may be able to find a table top mat with the terrain already printed on it.

I believe there's paper terrain out there as well.

Good luck.
