All 2D6 Wargaming miniatures are true 1:285 scale, commonly referred to as 6mm.
Yes, everything is cast in house.
Wargaming models work best with... 2D6 wargaming models... They are designed that way! As already stated they are 285 scale, no matter what you buy from us, it should all have good detail and uniformity. I can't say the same for other manufacturers that have been around for decades and had several sculptors create different pieces.
There seem to be two main scales in the 6mm size of wargaming. 1/285 and 1/300 scale respectively used by the US armed forces and NATO. There is very little difference along the length of a real 6 metre long tank. It is about 1mm on the model.
Some other manufactures have chosen to associate Z scale with 6mm. Z scale is a gauge of model trains. Much like wargamers use terms like 6mm, 20mm etc... Train enthusiasts use terms like HO, OO etc. Z scale is usually defined as 1/220. The train scale closest to 6mm is "ZZ" scale. A rare and limited scale used by Japanese model railway enthusiasts.
Then of course there is the proportions of the figures. Some are slender, some are barrel-chested. Some manufactures make quite stiff poses... Ultimately, where do you want to draw the line? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I cant decide what's important for you. If you like what you see here, why don't you just buy a few samples and find out for yourself? I often get emails telling me that a customer has just received their order and was very impressed and will be coming back. That the pictures on the site didn't do them justice etc. So, what else are you going to spend that money on anyway? Just give us a try, if you don't like them... at least you know and can stop wondering. Life is too short for regrets.
You can also pop on over to our customer reviews page to see what customers have to say about our miniatures.
The truth is, it's much easier to paint than larger scales!
For people who never painted 6mm before: Paint all the parts with one color, apply a dark brown wash, then touch up with the colors you used before, base them and the result looks great!
Shipping & ordering 📦
It depends on where you are. UK orders will take 1-4 business days to arrive. International deliveries can take anywhere from 7-16 days. Delivery details will be provided in your confirmation email.
Postal rates for sending items abroad are not just set by the Royal Mail but also by the recipient countries. The USPS has decided they need a lot more money to receive packages from abroad than from other countries. Why? - I don't know. However, it is not much more than sending items to the EU, Australia or Canada for example. I do not set the postal rates, I simply pass them on to the customer like any other mail order business.
Yes BUT... the new VAT/tariff system is not great and it means EU citizens would attract customs charges that you might not expect. HOWEVER, you can buy 2D6 Wargaming products from Masters of Military in Germany.
You can also order directly from 2D6 Wargaming but you will likely attract additional charges at customs. Your choice!
I ship to these countries in the same way as the US and EU. Customs fees may apply.
Orders are dispatched about twice weekly. The Royal Mail is one of the oldest and most reliable postal services in the world. If you see your order marked as "fulfilled" in an email, that means I am picking it, packing and or taking it to the post office. In short, its actively on its way!
Postage and packaging (P&P) fees are not just about postage, it involves everything to do with packing, packaging and posting your order. Boxes and pens, tape and labour and postage fees, everything that helps your order get out the door to the post office.
If you are in the UK, generally your order is not tracked. It will be dispatched using a "signed for" service over a certain threshold.
However, if you are anywhere else in the world your order will always be tracked and you should receive an email notification with a link so you can track your order's journey, this may not come in your first email as tracking is entered after dispatch.
No, simply because we do no charge VAT. In a nut shell, only businesses that have a turnover over £85,000 charge VAT in the UK.
