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: Five Seconds of Fame: Thanks, Jeff!

. Jeff's daughter designed / inspired this awesome Simian Martial Arts Master!

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday, despite a cruddy day at work, I received a very pleasant surprise:

The author of a blog that I absolutely love linked back to my humble little gaming blog here!
Thanks, Jeff!

Find his link here:

All I can say is that I'm flattered and honored to be thought worthy.

Jeff has GREAT taste in movies!

6mm Minis - One of my favorite miniatures blogs. Great photos. Not just 6mm scale.

Here's what I think of Jeff and why you should take a gander at his charming little blog when you get a chance:

Jeff Rients has a wonderful sense of whimsy, a great sense of humor and an encyclopedic knowledge of:
- Comic books (particularly wacky ones)
- Classic old RPG (Roleplaying Game) products of the 1970s and 80s
- Classic gaming artists of the 1970s and 80s
(I share his love of good illustrations...)

His blog never fails to amuse and entertain me whether he features:
- Pictures of his kids in Halloween costumes
(...at least I hope the costumes were for Halloween!)
- His whimsical drawings guaranteed to cheer me up
- A sampling from his rather eclectic musical tastes
(...including videos as often as not)
- Yet another mention of STAR WARS
- His really great, engaging writing skills
- Descriptions of his gaming experiences
(...including some pretty wacky-fun RPG campaigns)
- And so much more...

Jeff's mutant Ninja-kin nephew... love his family photos!

And, perhaps, best of all, I love his self description line:

ABOUT ME: Jeff Rients

Farm boy who wanted to grow up, go to the Academy, and join the Rebellion. Ended up a banker instead. Go figure.

Hey, I told you that Jeff has a goofy off color taste in comics...

Have a great Thursday!
