WELCOME TO THE BACCUS 6MM SITEBaccus specialises in the design and production of wargames figures and accessories in the 6mm scale. Although it is often overlooked by the dominance of the 15 and 28mm scales, the smaller figures offer huge advantages in terms of flexibility, prices and ease of painting. It often comes as a pleasant surprise to our new customers that they find 6mm figures easier and quicker to paint than their coarser-scale brethren.
24th Aug 2015 :: Progress Updates
Yes, it really has been that quiet over the last couple of weeks with not a great deal to report on. Given that the questions have been coming in to me, here's where we are with new releases.
The most obvious thing to say is that the WW2 range has not appeared. This is because the masters came out of the mould in a poor state to the point that we've had to go back to the beginning and start again. This has been a minor disaster for us as that's a big investment in time and money gone down the drain, but we'd rather do that then offer poor quality figures. This means that the first releases have been pushed back to October.
On a much more positive note there will soon be lots of new goodies appearing in the Great War ranges, as the later French will be arriving shortly along with mortars of all shapes and sizes for all nationalities and some really BIG guns.
Also making good progress although not for immediate release are the replacements for the elderly Spanish Succession figures. You'll see much more on this in the coming weeks, but here's a taster in the form of a base of the new Horse, which are painted up (inevitably) as the Regt de Berry...

In break with tradition, the morning of JOS15 started off cold, wet and gloomy. However, that didn’t seem to put people off as there was soon a steady stream of traders and gamers threading through Sheffield’s deadly one-way system and turning up outside Sheffield Hallam University and unloading their vehicles.read more
