Poll results are in

Well, it was close: FIREBASE ARES will remain a multi-scale blog. Thanks to those that participated in the poll.

Reaper Miniatures CAV Kickstarter is a GO

Today is the start of Reaper Miniatures Kickstarter for their CAV miniatures to be produced as BONES. What are BONES? BONES are the plastic version of the original metal miniatures. Reaper had 2 previous successful Kickstarters to produce several of their Fantasy miniatures as BONES. I have a few of the Fantasy BONES and they are very good, so I'm looking forward to CAV BONES. If you'd like to get in on this, you can get the full details on the CAV Kickstarter page.

Just a reminder...

PLANET ARES VI: "All Things 6mm Sci-Fi"

Some of you may have noticed my old 6mm scale blog has gotten new life. PLANET ARES VI is now a collaborative effort, among myself and five other bloggers, to provide a source for "All Things 6mm Sci-Fi".  Seeing how much Dropship Horizon has contributed to the popularity of 15mm scale sci-fi, our little group got together and decided that we would do the same for 6mm scale sci-fi wargaming. While it's oft been said  that "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery", we here at PLANET ARES VI plan to develop our own niche and style within the 6mm wargaming community.

The staff of PLANET ARES VI:

I hope that you will all check out PLANET ARES VI, and who knows, maybe some of you will become converts to 6mm scale sci-fi.
