    Hi everyone. Are you a 6mm WWII wargamer? If the answer is yes, great. I am searching for ways to meet more people that have the same interest so I decided to create a Facebook group aimed only at 6mm WWII wargamers.

    Here is a link to the new group. Feel free to invite your 6mm WWII wargaming friends too.

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/401816918241244/?ref=share

    People interested in 6mm covering the period between WWII and today are also invited.

    Have a great day!

    Why would you be blocked?

    Because it’s kind of a self-promotion for my group outside of this forum.

    6mm WW2 is one of my things. Saves space.

    That’s exactly one of the reason I went with 6mm. It saves space, is less expensive and it will allow me to create bigger battles and terrains.

    Why not join my group? The group is growing fast.

    I already joined this morning. As soon as I saw this thread. I like that I can have a nice sized fight on a table of 3×3. It is great. I like that I can store my armies in small boxes.

    While saving space is a good benefit, I see gaining the space made available on a ‘normal-sized’ tabletop between the units as the biggest plus.  Both the actual inches of terrain as well as the visual picture presented to the players that better communicates the reality being represented with as little translation required.  Reducing (or better: eliminating) the difference between figure and ground scales goes a long way towards improving the modeling of the action on the table, which is (imo) what gaming is all about.

    Finally, I have deleted my Facebook group and my Facebook account. I had three warnings just yesterday for petty things so adios Facebook.

    Is it possible to delete this thread? Thanks for your help.

    Maybe.  I started a 2mm and 6mm IO group when the YAHOO groups closed down but neither take up nor usage has been very great.  Aggregator sites like this one seem to service people well.  Facebook is popular but I stay away from it so cannot comment about it.

    I liked that 6mm group. Shame.

    There is a quite active 6mm FB group.

    Many of the old yahoo groups pretty much died after yahoo decided to kill them off and they were ported to other platforms. A real shame.

    Well still stuck with youtube but I see two 6mm wargame groups. One is 6mm wargaming and terrain and the other is 6mm miniatures and wargaming. They both have similar numbers of members and posts so not being a member of either which are you suggesting?

    Hey Madman,

    I replied to your infantry question on the io group.  I just joined, so it might be a little bit, before the message is approved.
