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: Ban's Deluxe Dropship!

.One of Bans' deluxe 6mm bird feeder dropships!

Hi All,

One of my favorite forums on the 'Net is the Epicomms forum... Because I meet all kinds of nice folks there. And among those nice folks has been a unfailingly kind and talented fellow who goes by the nickname Bans. And Bans is TRULY talented. And not only does he share my passion for miniatures, but he's a talented illustrator as well... and has recently contributed a number of sketches to the latest version of Net Epic, the online community's version of the classic Epic Space Marine / Epic 40k game.

Just the other day ago at Epicomms, Bans shared these photos:

Here's what Bans has to say about his creations:

Remember the GW old days?

I made these dropships thinking about those days, when any bottle could be a city, a tank or whatever you imagined. The project was stopped because I'm now really satisfied with the paint job. Now I think that the two dropships look really fine. They aren't a great models, but they were easy and cheap to make.

The components list to make two cheap Imperial dropships:

- Two birds food box, or any plastic / card box...
- Card paper from the packets that you received via postal service (...the United States postal service boxes are the best!) with it you can cut the wings.
- Green stuff to finish the model.
- White wood glue to paint all the model when it's glued.

And here you have the results:

Bans likes GW's Imperial Fists Space Marine chapter if you hadn't noticed...

Ban, as previously mentioned, is a talented illustrator and maintains a web site here:

If you're looking for an illustrator, he'd probably be interested in some sketch work and I can help put you in contact with him if you'd like.

Have a great Saturday!

Shabbat Shalom,

I can't wait for the MWS meeting later today!
