We recently played our third game of Rommel in 6mm. The armies are more or less done, but the terrain could do with a bit more work. There’s an account of the actual game here: https://wargamesasp.wordpress.com/2017/10/25/rommel-breakout/
All figures are by Adler, all vehicles by GHQ. Unit bases are 60mm x 40mm.

Superb job. Those bases are amazing. I like the tanks in the maze fields. Very neat idea.

Your link isn’t showing for me, and I want to see more. I’ve never seen bases done like that before, each one is like a little work of art. 🙂
I guess you could use the theme of the base terrain to identify which bases are part of the same unit?28/10/2017 at 10:22 #75057
Oops, sorry, got the formatting wrong on the link. The report is here: https://wargamesasp.wordpress.com/2017/10/25/rommel-breakout/
With the Russians I started out doing the infantry in groups of 3 with a similar theme, but wasn’t so organised with the Germans. Here’s some of the Germans lined up:

Are you using 6″ squares or 4″?

It is like each stand is a mini diorama. Brilliant. I love the long grass.

I made a ‘blog post on making the bases: https://wargamesasp.wordpress.com/2017/11/08/6mm-bases-for-rommel/

Thanks for sharing your techniques. 🙂
I’m still awestruck when I see the bases.09/11/2017 at 19:55 #75935
Thanks very much. I’ve made a second post going through the process with some work-in-progress pics:

The only downside to this that I can think of is that I couldn’t play a game with them, I’d be too busy looking at all the little dioramas to concentrate on the big picture. 🙂
For some reason I only really noticed how wonderfully painted the figures are too on this last series of pictures, absolutely fantastic.
