View Full Version : Sources of 6mm terrain?
11-18-2005, 12:00 PM
Does anyone know of manufacturers or distributors of 6mm roads, streams, stone walls, and/or hedges?
I'm looking for stand-alone elements, not terrain pieces that come attached to buildings, hills, fields, etc.

Try Miniature World Maker:
I have bought some of their stuff at Cold Wars, so someone in the US carries their products.

The MWM stuff is great. I use the 6mm towns for DBA built up areas, or of other 15mm games. I love those town mats. I wish there were some in 15mm. I saw a ww2 game at Historicon that had a 5-7 mats making a large town for a mirco armor game. I have lots of the roads, rivers and other open field terrain, also 25mm single buildings for skirmish games, Great stuff
The Royals give MWM 4 Woofs http://www-personal.umich.edu/~abeattie/dbasum2005/4%20WOOF%20ROYALS.jpg

I know they make 6mm terrain to go with their minis. can't guarantee that it is exactly what your after but have a look.

Irregular makes some nice, 6mm terrain. They have walls and towers, among other things, at reasonable prices. If you are in the U.S., you can order Irregular from Jacob Kovel at Silver Eagle Wargaming. Jacob is a nice guy and I have never had any trouble doing business with him.

Although Timecast specializes (at least in my opinion) on providing painted and based terrain, they do have fences, trees, and buildings in 6mm.

Thanks for all the input!
Iím actually looking for terrain for a WWII micro armor project, not DBA. For over 15 years Iíve been using plain felt strips for roads & rivers and gray balsa wood sticks for walls. I think itís high time to make some improvements.
After looking around I think my aim will be to eventually replace all of my roads, rivers, and buildings/towns with Miniature World Maker. A guy in my group has a few town sections and they are very nice. I need around 8 feet of river and 20 feet of roads, so the expense is a bit too high right now. So for now I think Iíll try making some river sections from scratch, lay some paint on the felt roads to make them more presentable, and pick up some walls and other odds and ends from Irregular (via Jacob Ė I met him when he came to SC for Cowpens in 2003. I didnít realize that he was a vendor, he just gamed at Cowpens).

GHQ's internet address is www.ghqmodels.com/, (http://www.ghqmodels.com/,) almost all of their stuff is, of course, made with micro armour in mind, but I'd recommend their trees ( www.ghqmodels.com/store/military-models-terrain-maker.html (http://www.ghqmodels.com/store/military-models-terrain-maker.html) ) and some of their buildings ( www.ghqmodels.com/store/military-models-pewter-buildings.html (http://www.ghqmodels.com/store/military-models-pewter-buildings.html) ) even to DBA-players.
