No. While the storyline is pretty consistent from game to game it's different time periods.
For a prime example. HoMM6 takes place 400 years before HoMM5.
soo if i did play 1 to 6 its does not matter on the story? becase ech of them have diffrent story that dont have too play the other one

Playing 1-4 will give you absolutely zero story help with 5 or 6. 1-4 take place in a totally different universe. When Ubisoft took over the franchise they completely rebooted the setting plot and story so there is nothing that links the first four with the last two.
was it not ubisoft that did make nr 4 too?

No the first 4 were made by New World Computing which was bought out by 3D0 who went bankrupt around 2003.
Ubisoft then bought the rights to the game a few years later and rebooted the story.
If you want my opinion the story behind that first four HOMM games was a class apart from the bland generic nonsense Ubisoft brought in for HOMM5&6 but it can be a little hard to follow if you want to go back and play them as the plot was also intertwined with the eight Might and Magic RPG games.
Rest assured though if you just want to play HOMM5 and 6 then you won't miss anything story wise by not playing the first four

"I buy Ubisoft games because their stories are consistently well-written."
I am betting that this sweet little sentence will win for me the Liar's Club Award for 2011, 25 Words Or Less Division.
