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!

MINI WARGAMING: "YONDERBOY: I want 6mm brainnnsss!"

Hi All,

One of the things I like best about maintaining my gaming blog is hearing from others or having my projects and photos inspire others. One of my pet projects over time has been to build a 6mm "Zombie Town" and I've posted from time to time as I've built more and more miniatures adn terrain towards this goal. One fellow 6mm minis fanatic who has been inspired by my work and kind enough to write has been Mike AKA Yonderboy (YB). Mike recently was kind enough to write and share some photos from his 6mm zombie project. I hope you enjoy them:

I was very impressed and inspired by his work... which reminds me that I need to work on my "6mm Down Town Urban City" project! Godzilla needs someplace to stomp when the Zeds aren't in town! I've been too distracted by the 28mm undead lately...

Thanks Mike AKA Yonderboy!
