I'd like to start Crossfire using 6mm miniatures.
May someone suggest ideas, pictures, blogs, etc.?
Thanks a lot.

CrossFire was originally designed using 6mm figures. The Stalingrad scenario was playtested with 6mm figures. I'm unaware of any specific Blogs, etc., but you shouldn't have any issues using that scale.

Joe that has inspired me to use my 10's for that….I can base them and use them for multiple rules.

Joes Shop Supporting Member of TMP02 Jun 2018 8:54 a.m. PST

Kevin: excellent idea.

Here is a 6mm Crossfire website that I have found to be quite useful, particularly for terrain and paper buildings;

Another good link!

williamb03 Jun 2018 8:35 a.m. PST also has a lot of information on other rules and subjects in addition to the 349 entries for crossfire.

Fellow gamers. I am still researching micro armour rules and have the following questions about crossfire. There are a few crossfires on Board Game Geek, I am pretty sure which one but a verification would be appreciated.

What is the game scale, 1 tank miniature =?, 1 stand of infantry or support weapon figure =?, time scale and ground scale. Thank you in advance.

I assume this is the game;



JCD196405 Jun 2018 12:04 a.m. PST

Stephen – Yes, those are the rules.

Game scale is 1 vehicle = 1 platoon, 1 infantry stand = 1 squad. An infantry platoon is typically 3 squads plus a platoon leader (all carried in one APC model if they are armoured infantry).

There is no specific time or ground scale.

The rules are very much focused on infantry actions with vehicles only used in a supporting role (I wouldn't recommend Crossfire for micro armour games). The games require lots of terrain, the rules break if there are big open spaces or long fields of fire.

In the USA On Military Matters stock the rules.

"Game scale is 1 vehicle = 1 platoon,…"

From the rules, 1.0 Prepare to Play, page 1:

Figure Scale

"a single vehicle or gun represents 1 actual weapon."

Specific rule stand size for 1/285 / 1/300: 1 1/4" square.

Again, the rules were designed and play tested using 6mm figures and vehicles. Refer to the Stalingrad Scenario on pages 41 42.

An evil Virus attack from this link (second from the top):

When I clicked on Arab-Israeli Crossfire it nearly fried my computer with a ransom ware.


Joes Shop Supporting Member of TMP05 Jun 2018 3:33 p.m. PST

Thanks for posting that! I was unaware of that issue.

d88mm1940 Supporting Member of TMP05 Jun 2018 6:17 p.m. PST

Sure. I wouldn't think you would do that on purpose. It's impossible to verity every single link.
Who would ever think to click on a 6mm Arab Israeli Crossfire link?

@d88mm1940 and @Joes Shop
Hi, the second link from the top is one of mine, as is the Arab-Israeli Crossfire link you mention. Its a bit alarming to read about an "evil Virus attack".

Earlier in the month my site, along with other WordPress sites, was exposed to a security vulnerability via a built in module called JetPack. The symptoms, as I saw it, was to get redirected to a dodgy site when navigating around the infected site.

This issue has now been addressed in WordPress in general, JetPack, and my site specifically. You shouldn't experience any issues now.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

Steven; understood and thanks for the update!
