I didn't have too much of a problem convincing some club members. To me it's a case of 'do you want a battlefield that looks like a battlefield?'

The main issue for me right now is that most, if not all clubmates (and also other gaming buddies) have a lot on their plates already and aren't that keen on starting another scale. At club there are also several ex-DBM players who have loads and loads of 15mm stuff and they're basically going "why would I want to collect the same army in another scale?"

So while many of them agree that 6mm is great in several ways, and also happily play games I put on, none of them are ready to take the leap and start collecting 6mm themselves. Which is a real shame. I can only hope that my continued efforts will eventually make some of them unable to resist the temptation...

Lately I've been focusing on terrain building and such, and to make it all come "alive" I threw in a bunch of Baccus civilians, cows and sheep. 

As always, more pictures can be found on the blog.

Thanks guys.

I've let the Greek lad rest for a while, but earlier this week they saw some action, using the To the Strongest! rules. 

Full AAR plus many more pictures can of course be found on the blog.

I just saw pages 2 and 3 of this thread. The terrain and boards are fanastic and it really makes the whole setup.  I hope to do some thing similar with some Romans and Slave Revolt figures I picked up.

To The Strongest looks promising given the basing style. Do you have any details on it?
