PLANET ARES VI is the successor to my old 6mm science fiction wargaming blog FIREBASE ARES 6. It is also the successor to another of my old blogs, STARFIGHTER COMMAND. I have combined both 6mm ground and space combat into one blog.
For many years I have struggled to make up my mind on a single scale to wargame in, being pulled this way and that, by the "Oooooh Shiney" syndrome of 15mm miniatures and the familiarity of the 28mm miniatures I gamed with in my younger years. I got into 6mm minis about 4 years ago and dabbled in them off and on, bouncing around to the other scales in between. Every time I get bored with the other scales, I always go back to 6mm, mainly because it is more satisfying for me to work with. So, I've finally come to my senses, and henceforth, I will only be wargaming with 6mm miniatures. As a friend of mine likes to say, "6mm FTW"
