1 I turned IS of as the models where reasonable fast walking, I thought IS wouldn't be that fast to stabilise with the 6D.
It was my first catwalk shoot, next time i'll keep IS on.
2 Actually I started with ISO 200 but I had lowered it to 100 as it was such a sunny day the stage and air where too white allready.
3 Correct, flash settings were ETTL automatically
4 I like flash to have clean bright faces & catchlights, I had some pics without flash and underexposed faces, when cranking up the brightness this results in more noise, I try to prevent this in faces.
5 Yes AI Servo (even with a 6D )
I only had 2 pair of 4 AA's with me, just used ETTL, HSS eats battery's very fast, my first ones where allready fast empty and burning hot...
Just found out that only the central AF point only was on from the shots I took from my daughter the day before... didn't check this, I'd better had more AF on...
It was a hectic day, shooting + keep an eye on my young daughter in the mass if she sat nicely still on the chair, my wife was off to work so I had no babysit.

Couple things come to mind.
1. Why turn off IS? Unless you're in a tripod there really isn't much reason to turn it off. Yes it's only helpful for stationary subjects but it doesn't hurt to have it on unless you're panning quickly (like in motorsports) at which point some lenses have ISO mode 2 for panning (I forget if the 70-200 II has it)
2. Keep an eye on your your shutter speed and don't be afraid of bumping your ISO. Noise is a lot easier to fix then blur.
3. When using flash I'd really suggest using manual mode. In aperture priorty the camera treats the flash as just a full light and will drop the shutter speed lower then you may want.
4. Why were you using flash? Trying to use it as a fill light or main light? (It's not wrong to use flash, just curious why you were)
5. What AF mode were you in? With anything that's moving I use Ai servo.
