Description

A miniature figure (also known as a miniature, mini, figure, or fig) is a small-scale representation of a historical or mythological entity used in miniature wargames, role-playing games, and dioramas. Miniature figures are commonly made of metal, plastic, or paper. They are used to augment the visual aspects of a game and track position, facing, and line of sight of characters. Miniatures are typically painted and can be artfully sculpted, making them collectible in their own right. Pre-painted plastic figures, such as Clix miniatures produced by WizKids, have also become popular. The hobby of painting, collecting, and playing with miniatures originated with toy soldiers, though the latter were generally sold pre-painted.

The 5.92 mm scale is the NATO/EU standard scale for sand-table wargames involving micro armor. Closely related to 1:285 scale and generalized as "6 mm" figure scale. 6.2 mm is the US standard for large-scale historical armor battles involving micro armor. Also popular in other genres, such as ancient, fantasy, and sci-fi.

Check out BGG's Miniatures board game category for all games containing miniatures. For further information on miniatures refer to Wikipedia's Miniature figure (gaming) article, the Geeks' Miniatures wiki page, the Miscellaneous Miniatures Game Accessory game entry and the Miniature Wargaming guild.

For miniature painting, check out the Miniature Painters Guild guild and the Monthly Golden Turtleback Painted Miniatures Contests.
