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!

HOLIDAYS: "Happy 232nd birthday, USMC!"

.TOP: The flag of the USMC.
Hi All,

Short, sweet, to-the-point post today:

Happy 232nd birthday to the United States Marine Corps!

Please donate to the Project Valour-IT Veterans Day Fundraiser, to provide voice-activated laptop computers to injured and disabled veterans if you get a chance to... as well. It's a small way for us to give back to men whose contributions to our society are easy to take for granted.

As a veteran myself and coming from a family with a long, proud service record, I'm always happy to celebrate Veteran's Day with my American friends and Remembrance Day with my Canadian, Ozzie, and British friends.

I also want to send out a special thanks to my father and grandfathers who served across the world to preserve some of the many freedoms I enjoy today whether in Cuba, Brazil, Europe, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, or elsewhere.

Have a great Saturday!
And a Gut Shabbos to my Jewish readers!

Shabbat Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.
