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: "Pendraken 10mm Sci-fi Teaser Shots" (29 October 2007)

Hi All,

One of the shortcomings of most miniatures sites is that many of them fail to provide photos of their product, not just good or clear photos, but ANY photos at all! It's one of those quirks of the miniatures industry that so few companies advertise or provide photos of their product. To a large degree, fans have been forced to slowly provide product photos for themselves since only a few of the most responsive companies have been remedying this quirk of the industry. I am pleased to report that many if not most of the newer miniatures companies are avoiding this shortcoming. Many of the old dogs however, have yet to learn this new trick.

Pendraken, while being a company with a reputation for good service, hasn't always been great with providing product photos, although they are working on it as Germy and I have chatted about before. Germy works quite a bit with Pendraken and probably still runs their web site.

Here are the product photos for selections from Pendraken's 10mm sci-fi line:

And many thanks to Mark Cougar Jensen who not only took these fine photos, but volunteered to share them. All I have to say is that I owe him a big vote of thanks and I'm severely tempted to take a trip to Denmark just to meet and game with all the great gamers I've met from there.
