Xmarx - Armored Train

A few years back I received a train from Brian Slack of Xmarx.com.  The train is designed for 6mm-15mm game play.  I found the train to be perfect in both scales.  The armored train consists of an Engine and 3 rail cars (Engine, Supply Car, Passenger Rail Car and Passenger Rail Car with Gun).  The train is resin cast and each train or engine comes with 4 pieces (Upper Body, Lower Body with wheels, front and rear bumpers).

PlasmaBlast Games, Progenitor, Orbital Combine

It seems that a lot of gamers are sort of mixed about how to base their 6mm infantry and vehicles if at all.  Last night I decided to really think about the best way to go about doing this and I think I have come up with some good solutions.

Normal Sized Infantry - base them 3 to 5 per stand using a 40x15mm stand.
Large Infantry - base them 1 to 3 per stand using a 40x20mm stand
Small Vehicles - base them 2 to 3 per stand using a 40x20mm stand.
Large Vehicles - base them 1 per stand using a 30x40mm stand.
Very Large Vehicles/Monsters - Here I think you can use either square or round bases.  For Vehicles

I will probably opt for either a 40x40mm stand or larger.  For Monsters I tend to like round bases and I am thinking 40mm or 50mm should be sufficient. 
Below are some samples of Plasmablast Games vehicles for both the Progenitor and Orbital Combine forces.

Road Kill - KickStarter

A new Kickstarter popped up called Road Kill.  Think Cars Wars and you've basically got it.  The vehicles look rather cool and the game mechanics look good as well.

GW - Space Marine Centurion Squad

GW has lost it. Here are 3 Space Marine Centurions that retail for $78. That's $26 per figure. Really...really. They remind me of Those Sumo Suits that people wear. Pretty bad.
