New links added

I added some more links to the RULES SYSTEMS page. The new links are for both planetary combat and starfighter combat rules systems. As I find more rules systems that work with 6mm minis, rest assured, I will add them to the page.

Something Wicked This Way Comes - Onslaught Miniatures Stygians

Onslaught Miniatures has some minis set for future release that have got me interested in playing Epic. The new faction they will be releasing are called the Stygians, and if you're familiar with the 40K universe, you know who these guys look like, one of my all time favorite evil races; the Dark Eldar. Since they are a future release, I should have time to save up to buy a bunch of these deliciously evil minis once they are released. You can see more preview photos on the Onslaught Miniatures site.


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"
