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 Adeptus Mechanicus Dropship!

. Bans' Adeptus Mechanicus Dropship in 6mm! ...with Space Marines!
Hi All,

Bans has done it again and imagineered something fantastic from cobbled-together trash with a few bitz to embellish that less flashy parts. Bans astonishes me with his creativity!

Here's Bans' commentary:

The front view of Bans' Adeptus Mechanicus Dropship.

Bans: Here you have my latest dropship! It was born from the synthesis of:
- The paper from some used (burned-out) firecrackers for the hull and engines.
- Two cannons provided by Otterman (Thanks, Otterman!).
- Some paint...
- And a little glue!

Bans: Very easy and cheap!!
The main idea is that we can IMAGINE anything with any material!

A better view of the **hand-painted** Adeptus Mechanicus logo.

Bans: The Mechanicus emblem was hard to do!

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

Have a great Sunday!


I played a 28mm WHFB battles with Nils yesterday and lost. His Beast of Chaos army was able to score more victory points than my Vampire Counts army. However, I always say that if you're going to lose, beat the living heck out of the other player and I did!

I haven't forgotten about the MWS report from June... it's still in the rough draft stage.

    He has done it again -another great and original piece by bans. I am most impressed with how effective his painted on details are. Mine always come out flat and unconvincing but looking at his bridge, its very realistic.

    Hi Tas,

    I know the feeling... I can't get painted-on details to look good either.
