I fear the answer is no. And I think the problem is the number of 28 mm manufacturers in front of 6 mm meaning lots of paid adds in the glossies... One thing Peter did not mention, however, is the size of the table and also the room to manoeuvre... those are for me two big arguments in favour of the joy of 6. And I wish I could paint like the chap who recently did those Camel Corps beauties. Thank you Peter... just add some Bengal lancers and Indian native troops like the Guides and the world in 6 would be perfect!... lol... Alejo Dorca
Well I have club members urging me to get on with my 6mm Hellenistic project so they can throw in legionaries against pike blocks, but let me paint the Romans first (and get the Successor troops in York). In the last 10 months I've had nothing bigger than 10mm on my painting table and some stuff as small as 3mm. Currently 6mm 1870 Bavarians are under the brush.

Am I alone (guess not) in a very unorthodox approach to wargames?... meaning I have abandoned the idea of painting the opposition (enemy)... I do wargame the Charge of the Light Brigade, Little Big Horn and the Frontier Ablaze (from Maiwand to Malakand)... but in a mixture of rol play and wargame... and I just love Baccus 6mm... always doing proxxies mainly but you need all sorts you know! If anyone around has the same interests feel free to email me to firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers

6mm does seem to be gaining traction, but 28mm is the perfect eye candy scale, and magazines love eye candy.
