Di i get this correctly if i presume that CBT uses 6mm scale? And that FOW figures might work reasonably with them, specialy terrain pieces.

If memory serves, Flames of War is 1:100 scale (15mm).

Battletech is 1:285 scale (6mm).

Flames of War would be too big, but Micro Armor is spot on.

Probably some of the best sculpted terrain pieces I've ever seen.  And PHOTOS of everything!

Thanks to you I'm 43$ CAD lighter - I ordered some buildings yesterday evening. Shipping to Europe was also free!

This looks to be a company producing some stuff specifically in BT scale:

Hawk Wargames' Cityscape paper terrain set

Here's a peek of it in Alpha Strike action



Ignore the building on the bottom left of the top picture. That one is from a downloadable PDF from Hawk Wargames website that they offer if you want more buildings of a certain type in the set or want to give paper terrain a try, so that particular building is homemade.

Most of the other  buildings come from the actual set. Those pieces are from much thicker stock with a varnish finish. If you permanently glue the roof in place, they are sturdier than expected.

I opted to leave them unglued and make cardboard inserts so everything folds flat at the end of the day, but they can sport two or three metal mechs on a roof top during a fight.

I might be wrong, but that doesn't look like 6mm ...  ???

Its 10mm, not overly out of scale but for the whopping $40 you pay for the cityscape terrain pack, its actually a top notch product for the price.  Those buildings actually support a metal mech without additional support, and you can print out the same style of buildings for free from their website, if you set it to print at 66%, youll have perfect 6mm scale.

Has anyone had luck with buying from Burnindesigns? I'm trying to order some of the 6mm buildings, but after an initial reply two weeks ago communications have gone dead.

Hi!

We are starting a miniature line this month with shapeways:

We know, the detailed shapeways-material is expensive, but we try to build details scenery for 6mm. There will be more in march. We hope you like it.

I was looking at that arch and a few other things the other night.


As for burn in designs, I bought from them a few months ago and built them last week. I posted pics on FB. He had posted on his blog that he was not taking anymore orders for a bit to retool. He is upgrading all his cutting equipment.

He also mentioned that he had to reorganize his business set up so he could more easily develop new stuff while also filling orders. Evidently he'd had trouble doing both at once.

The hold is annoying. I'd wanted to order a bunch of buildings from him for my alpha strike terrain project. Guess I'll have to scratch build and get the game craft minis stuff until he opens his store again. Just hope the hiatus is not a long one.

Not new, but new to me: http://angelbarracks.co.uk/

6mm skirmish terrain and miniatures.  The infantry/civilian figs are about 1 mm taller than the smaller (20-823, 824) Kurita and Davion infantry and right in line with GHQ infantry.  Overseas shipping was very reasonable for my small order.  There's also great inspiration for custom pieces in the forum, like the best use for laptop keys I've seen to date.

This is an awesome site for free to use textures as long as you don't try to use them for commercial use.

Browsing the site again today and spotted the new Nielson Force Fence.  My first thought was that it would be great for the Steiner Coliseum on Solaris VII.  Just line the top of the outer wall and you've got a detonator grid to protect spectators.

I found this US based site today. It looks like they sell various scale pieces by various manufactures but this series of 6mm pieces by Novus Design really caught my eye and the prices seem reasonable. I think I'll be getting some once I have some spare funds to use which will probably be sometime next decade.  :'(
