My 6mm Vietnam project

Postby marke » Sun Apr 10, 2016 5:00 pm

For a long time I have wanted to do Vietnam in a scale which rules like Charlie don't Surf and others really feel right fielding a company on a 6 x 4 table. So I have started a 1 to 1 scale 6mm project - 1 mm will be 1 foot in real life for figs and terrain etc. So far I have done some local forces and a US company. You can see my last 2 posts on the subject on my blog at : https://mellis1644.files.wordpress.com/2016/04/img_0588-800x600.jpg?w=640&h=480 I plan on some NVA troops as well as helo's and vehicles.

But here is a close up shot of the American forces.

Well that's for looking. The terrain is going to give me more of a headache though - as I'll need a village and loads of tree's etc.

I posted on your blog.. good to see it here too... nice work.
I have a pretty big collection of irregulars 6mm and bought over the years... 10mm as well as some 20mm and 25/28mm at one loint i wanted to get the 1/48th stuff that was avaialable... ye goDs. .. now I'm going into the 3mm stuff...
I made quite a bit of terrain in 6mm and it's relatively easy to make and pretty fast too.. though a lot of it went be the way side in moves etc.
Id liken to get hold of a big space and do 1/600 on a 1-1 ground scale.. do that on the floor and have the players in c and ç helos... the could legitimately have the advantages' of the 2000 foot tall general.

Really nice. I'm starting on 3mm myself.
Started with air - then I needed some targets…
You know how this works…

You write "Born to Kill" on your helmet and you wear a peace button. What's that supposed to be, some kind of sick joke?
