6mm-Minis is Maksim-Smelchak's blog to discuss gaming, miniatures, books, movies, food, Israel, Judaism, life in general and other funny crud. My favorite scale of miniatures is 6mm, which is also called 1/285 or 1/300 scale. I enjoy many different kinds of games including ancients, Napoleonics, WWI, WWII, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Car Wars AKA Autoduel (a sort of crash'n'derby automobile combat game), 6mm Godzilla AKA Kaiju games, and science fiction games. I'm open to everything though!

MINI WARGAMING: Monster Scale - Taller Than A...

Hi Guys,

What I've discovered is that:

- If using human units, buildings and scenery, 2" to 4" (50-100mm) monsters seem to scale best with miniatures of the 1/285, 1/300, 5mm and 6mm scales.

- Practically speaking though, any miniature between 1" to 4" (25mm to 100mm) seem to work fine with a few smaller miniatures for spider swarms and the like.

- I have been basing all of my monsters on fender washers of these sizes:

- 3/4" for small swarm-type monsters...
- 1" for most 25mm scale figures...
- 1&1/4" for slightly larger figures...
- 2" for the larger 3" to 4" in height monsters...
- And occasionally a larger base for REALLY BIG monsters...


I'm still looking for a Staypuft Marshmallow man like the one from Ghostbusters...
