First Post

Hello and welcome to the All Hell Let Loose blog!

The blog is mostly about 6mm wargaming and will be focussed for the moment on WW2.  Much of the content will support gaming with a set of rules created by Dave the Designer.

The rules called, All Hell Let Loose, are in the later stages of development and refinement and Dave hopes to publish them at some point in the next year. Specifically designed to represent miniature table top battles of World War II, using 6mm miniatures the rules allow players to fight large scale battles involving mutiple battalions or regiments up to divisional or larger forces. The rules recreate the feel of battles in the European theatre of operation, with a particular focus on the later war from 1943 onwards.

I’ll provide commentary on the battles we fight and occasionally post detailed scenarios for use with the rules.

I’ll also blog about some of the models and terrain I’ve built or am in the process of building and which will likely appear in the photos of the games we’ve played.

  1. Oh man. So much inspiration. Those garden bases are great, much better than just plonking down buildings alone. I've saved the pictures to my "wargaming inspiration photos" folder. Where'd you get the buildings? I made my own from clay, they're decent I guess, for mass production, but not very detailed and took way way too long to make. Considering some papercraft. As soon as I get access to a printer again...

    Also, that gaming table. The planes are brilliant, are they 6mm? They look huge. Perhaps they are those $7 planes I saw on Scotia Grendel?

    1. Hi Mirrorbird, thank you for the feedback!
      The buildings are by brigade models and are from their 2mm range. You can find them at They are available from Pecoarmour in the US. They are pretty cheap and look awesome with a simple paint job.
      They large gliders belong to a friend and are a fair few years old so not sure where he got them. They are 1:300 or 1:285 scale and are beautiful.

So in my last post I said my next blogpost would be on building the citadel tower. Well I am so far behind in posting updates on my blog tha...
