Miniature wargaming

Miniature wargaming is wargaming consisting of rules written to incorporate miniatures or figurines. The miniatures in the games are used to represent troops or other objects of war, such as tanks. One of the main reasons people play miniature games as opposed to computer or board games is because soldiers and scenery on a tabletop is aesthetically pleasing, and painting miniatures and constructing scenery can be challenging and rewarding as well. In summary, miniature wargaming combines the asthetics of something like tabletop train modeling with the strategy of wargaming.
