A Rather Small Skirmish Project

For the Baccus gamesday we are also going to be bringing a change of scale. It'll still be in 6mm, but this time it's a skirmish game. Just as a teaser here's some pictures of the box as it progresses. There is a 6mm dismounted knight and a troll to give an idea of scale. The box is roughly 300mm x 300mm. With a sheet of steel in the top and bottom of the box, covered in sticky back sheets, one granite, the other green velor. The scenery and the figures will all be magentic. Meaning you can change terrain and hopefully terrain and figures won't go flying if knocked.
For the gamesday we'll be using the Broadsword Adventures rules and hopefully I should have 3 or 4 different scenarios which can be played.


  1. Very cool idea! But 6mm? Does everyone have their own magnifier?

  2. We'll be providing optivisors to all the participants so that they can see clearly all the equipment on their figures. Did we mention it was WYSIWYG? ;-)

  3. This looks like a very interesting project. Like the idea of magnetising everything.

  4. Saw this at Derby, found the concept very clever and highly amusing.

    The Towton game was one of the highlights of the show for me.


  5. Thanks for the compliments, Matt. It is very gratifying that so many people have complimented us on our efforts.
