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: Holiday HoTT night (21 December 2005) Game Report...

Hi Guys,

There was a sort of informal gaming night yesterday at A-1 Comics on Douglas in Roseville yesterday. We played a series of HOTT games.

Here are a few quotes from the MWS gaming group that all of the players belong to:
> Them Orcs aren't hapless.
> They have plenty of haps, maybe hundreds of them - they took them from my boys last night.
> Thank [insert deity of choice here, or not] for Don's trash-talking, spear-sucking, blade-licking, barbarians.
> We spotted him two army points destroyed for his poignant "Oooohhh...I'm soooooooo afraid..." taunting of the Romans before they stomped his boys into the dust shouting "Quis pater tuus?"
> Kurt Lambert wrote:
> And once again my Parthians stomped on Mark's hapless orcs, as well as taking out Don's pansy Hyborians' general and winning the field.
> They then took a well-deserved rest and sent out their (apparently untrained) understudies to take on Dick's Romans...
A link to the MWS E-group:


The following people were present:

- Mark Carper of the "One-Pip Ork Klan"
- Dick Mitchell of the Roman Procurators
- Don Delis of the Orator's Society
- Kurt the Mighty Ribald Man of Many Quips
- Maksim-Smelchak, Leader of the Appetizer-lov'in Spearmen

We all played at least two HOTT games each and some of us played three or even four games of HOTT.

As far as I can tell, here were the game records:

- Dick: 3W, 0L
- Don: 0W, 2L
- Kurt: 1W, 1L
- Maksim: 2W, 0L
- Mark: 0W, 3L

All had a good time and it's unfortunate that these were just practice games and not part of the HOTT campaign series since I won two games.

It was fun! I can't wait until we do it again.

Here's the Boardgame Geek link to HOTT:


Happy holidays everyone!
