6mm-Minis

6mm-Minis is Maksim-Smelchak's blog to discuss gaming, miniatures, books, movies, food, Israel, Judaism, life in general and other funny crud. My favorite scale of miniatures is 6mm, which is also called 1/285 or 1/300 scale. I enjoy many different kinds of games including ancients, Napoleonics, WWI, WWII, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Car Wars AKA Autoduel (a sort of crash'n'derby automobile combat game), 6mm Godzilla AKA Kaiju games, and science fiction games. I'm open to everything though!

GAMING NEWS: Have You Had Your "Skank" Today? If Not, Get It For Free!


Hi Everyone,

One of the biggest games in town goes on every year on Halloween at Great Escape Games in Sacramento and that is the Zombie Town games going on a number of year now (I think it's over ten, but I'm not sure). Those of you who made it out to ConQuest Sac got to see one of the Zombie Town games in person and know that Zombie Town is plain B-movie goodness!

And for me, hosting the Zombie Town games every Halloween weekend works as Halloween is my birthday! Huzzah! Playing in a low-key, beer & pretzel game is a great way to celebrate my surviving another year. Here's hoping...

Well, Mike and Marcus, two of THE Zombie Town progenitors have decided in all their generosity to make their rule set available to the public... in proper Skank fashion... for FREE!

And you can check out photographic reports of the games here:

There are at least three documented Zombie Town games and a number of other "Mad Max" type apocalyptic games with photo albums.

Special thanks to Gary and the Great Escape staff for hosting several gaming tournaments at the ConQuest 2006 game convention!

This site has a list of the local shops that sell games:

Don't forget Viking Hobby, one of my all-time favorites!

I'm still in process of editing and cropping the photos I took at ConQuest 2006, but I'll try to upload a Zombie Town ConQuest 2006 photo to this blog post later this evening depending on time constraints.

I did get the photos I took uploaded. They can be found here:

Have a great week!

Chag Sameach and Shalom,
