If you wanna scale down 28mm to 6mm, just exchange the inches for measurements for half centimetres.

28 mm / 6 mm ~= 4.67
2.54 cm / .5 cm ~= 5.08

Close enough.

For those interested in 6mm GorkaMorka, look what Vanguard Miniatures just released:

Skinnerz Sneakers Commandoes:
P1040936scs.jpg

P1040937scs.jpg

P1040918s.jpg

P1040917s.jpg

Sneakers are what Tusculum Nova’s forces have designated these skinnerz special forces troops because they always tend to turn up where they are least expected. Unlike most skinnerz these warriors are rarely seen committed to all out frontal assaults on enemy front line positions but are specialists in long range recon and raiding duties with destruction of enemy rear area installations a common target.

40 x Skinnerz commandoes in a ratio of 20 x rifle troops and 20 x melee weapons troops

£7.00

Whose us? You, obviously, but how many others?
"Us" is a bit of a relative term here. With us I mean Vanguard Miniatures who is run by a fellow named John Fielding. Ben Skinner has done most of the design work, but I've started doing some stuff for Vanguard as well. In this campaign it are (at the moment) the Tainted Hecate Interceptor and Novan Regulars Tribune Heavy Tank.

Another stretch goal...

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/small-scale-armies-from-vanguard-miniatures#/updates/14

Gobblers Field Artillery Perk
Hi Backers,

I have now released the latest stretch goal perk this time the Skinnerz Gobblers Light Field Artillery set towed. There is a single and triple set option available.

Thanks again for backing my campaign Regards John
New campaign perk available.
Gobblers Light Field Guns Set
Skinnerz utilise a wide variety of light artillery pieces to support their armies, these are commonly towed by fast tractors enabling them to be rapidly deployed on the battlefield.
Each Gobblers light artillery set contains, 4 x Tractor Vectors, 4 x Field Pieces (1 of each ) and 20 x Gobblers crew figures (2 sets of 10).
Note that there is still some detail work to do on these yet and the rocket model will be a separate item.
