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.

Check out BGG's Miniatures, Wargame and Medieval board game categories for all appropriately categorized games.

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.

The profile picture is of the first cruise ship I worked on called the TSS Canberra. I ended up spending 10 years working on this ship. The plane in the photo is a British "Canberra" bomber taken from the Rock of Gibraltar
