If you want this network to be self contained and not effect your existing network, use a vSwitch with no network cards attached, and just use a single Portgroup to connect the VMs.

all the devices need to be v6 like for instance your physical switches as ip v6 cannot use ip v4 but ip v4 can be encalsulated in ip v6
