I have updated my house rules and datacards.
I have added them to the Forge Of War forum.

Size Matters!

thanks for re-posting these. Every time i see awesome 15mm stuff posted and think -ill get into that, skirmish game would be fun…. I then reconsider and realise that it would be much cooler in 6mm!

thanks again 8)

@ earthad
Beginning to agree that gaming in 6mm is cooler. At least I can find stuff I need easily in 6mm. 15mm has become too "Ooooh Shiny!" lately. Lots of stuff being previewed for 15mm, but not available anytime soon. Don't have this problem in 6mm.

@ Angel Barracks
Thanks for linking to your house rules and datacards. Those are handy.

Glad they are of use, maybe if only as inspiration to get others into 6mm.

I am a little confused…do you use fubar as infantry squad vs infantry squad? Or do you use it as individual soldiers ( or are they simply based as individuals and functioning as squads)
I am interested in using fubar at this scale but with individual soldiers skirmish, will the rules permit this… this what blaster/ fubar is intended for?
Any info appreciated, thanks for the inspirational photos
Was thinking of using mechwarrior vehicles with 6mm infantry, I don't think the size difference is too noticeable, or is it?

( or are they simply based as individuals and functioning as squads)

Yes that way.
One activation roll per unit.
Add up the firing dice for the unit and apply hits to the enemy unit.
Based individually so that single casualties may be removed.

I am just getting some mechwarrior vehicles to use myself.

Yes you could roll activation per figure instead of unit, may take a while and be a bother to track who has activated and who has failed though if you have a lot of men?
