2mm Gamers Rise Up!

Is something of a 2 mm Renaissance is in the air these days? Or maybe it’s just observer bias – that I notice more 2mm projects because I myself am working on 2mm projects. Whatever the case, if you’re interested in 2 mm projects have I got a doozy...

Lake Sambee Post Mortem

Sometimes the best way to fight…is not to fight at all.  Today we’re talking about some painful lessons learned from a game of 2 x 2 Napoleonics.  It has taken me an embarrassingly long time to get a handle on how to work this ruleset. In the Battle of...

2×2 Napoleonics : A Bit of Eye Candy

 More black powder gaming using a neat little trick for roads and streams… Simple yarn.  It’s just the right scale for 2mm figures, and you can nudge it all about to make just the right curves.  Placed down on a fleece battlemat and it works a treat....

Happy New War!

The War of the Trossian Succession Approaches! The fourth of five armies takes to the field in dashing black and capped in yellow.  This time around it’s the not-quite-Prussian army, all 38 stands of 1-inch square menace.  That leaves just the not-quite-French army and a whole lot of terrain,...

On the Table at 2mm

With the painting out of the way, let’s take a look at what 2mm figures look like on the table. But first, here is a side-by-side shot of the Great Traffic Light Alliance, with British on top and Austrian in the middle and Russians on the bottom row. Any...

A 2mm Primer

With three full armies of these tiny little blokes under my belt, I’m finally ready to share some experience with you, dear reader.  By no means an expert, the best I can offer is my experience working with this incredibly small scale. First up, when you spray coat them,...

The 2mm Journey

Here’s a bit of a look at my 2mm journey, one upon which I have only just begun.  Specifically, here is the starting point for my SYW Russians. Bare metal inventory in progress.  Planning plays a big role here, and you want to dry fit to a base so...
