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!

COOL STUFF: "My lord, I've reached the main power generator..."

.
TOP: "The Empire Strikes Back," an all-time classic!

Hi All,

I have a number of married friends with young children and when I visit them, I usually try to be a good guy and help them push the stroller about. I was thinking about that yesterday when I came across this photo:

TOP: "Mama, I've reached the main power generators."
"The shield will be down in moments, you may start your landing."

I found the photo here:

And if I had one of those AT-AT strollers (...and a baby), I think I'd volunteer a HECK of a lot more to push the stroller!

TOP: General Maximillian Veers, played by Julian Glover.

And I thought I'd mention that General Maximillian Veers is probably one of my all-time favorite Star Wars characters... it might just be the name! Not only did he command the ultra-cool AT-ATs, but he had these cool lines:

"My lord, I've reached the main power generators. The shield will be down in moments, you may start your landing."

You can learn more about the General Veers character here:

Have a great Wednesday!

Shalom,
