6mm West Riding Yemonary for Hammers Slammers

for tonight's post I thought I'd post up some picture of my 6mm Hammers Slammers project. While flicking through my Hammers Slammers books I came across the West Riding Yeomanry and thought they looked cool, there are some pictures of some 28mm ones http://www.hammers-slammers.com/images/west_riding/index.htm here.
I couldn't afford to do this in 28mm so I decided to go 6mm. After searching around I found these sci-fi tanks from Garrison Miniatures
I've converted them by giving some brass rod gun barrels or cutting of the barrels to make stubby gatling guns.
Basically this is a company of
1 platoon AA tanks
1 platoon of Tri barrel tanks
2 platoons of light laser armed tanks
1 Hq of 1 tank and 2 light hover vehicles
I plan to add some infantry and APC to this force and have already started work on some rebels as opposition for the West Riding Yeomanry.
Cheers Jon

  1. Looking good Jon! I've also been working on 6mm SF recently and have a couple of armies ready. Are you up for a game? I can field a suitable Slammers universe mercenary force to take you on. Do you have rules in mind? I'd like to try Future War Commander, but I'm up for anything really.
