6mm Roman Era... any suggestions

Post by friar.tuck » Thu Jan 08, 2015 8:40 pm

Greetings Barter Town,

Thinking about expanding into the 6mm world... very interested in Roman era warfare...

1. Any suggestions on game systems that work well with this era and 6mm?
2. Any particular manufacturers you recommend?
3. Anything else we should know as we contemplate entering this era/size/etc.... ? I currently play Flames of War (15mm) with some Bolt Action (28mm) occasionally.

Thank you in advance for your advice/insight.


FOW: U.S.: U.S. dice tin
6mm: Baccus Imperial Romans & their enemy, other 6mm

Have to trade:
FOW: German: 3 Tigers
FOW: British (both NIB): Para Roy. Engin (BR806), 4.5" Howitzer Battery
FOW: American (NIB): Rifle Company (UBX03)
Heroes of Normandie (NIB: still shrink wrapped)

Kind of an old post.

I absolutely love Warmaster Ancients. It's everything that I love about Warmaster-with Romans and Samurai.

We have also played using 25mm rules and simply mounting little dudes on big dude bases.
If I owe you a reference let me know.

Baccus 6mm has Roman miniatures. https://www.baccus6mm.com/catalogue/TheRomans/
They also have rules.

Sold in the USA by Scale Creep.

Warmaster Ancients have rules for them also. along with rules- Hail Caesar! by Warlord (I think)

Baccus Miniatures - you can pick them up from Scale Creep if your in the US. I have quite few 6mm armies.


Rules sets - My current favorite IMPETUS although also looking into Warlord Games Hail Ceaser

check my other email smonsour@mindspring.com for many more references.
