Choosing WarGaming Miniatures

By Lily Morgan

Miniature collectibles are still widely popular among collectors and those that are into miniatures as a hobby. Wargaming miniatures are just one type that you can buy and collect. They are immensely popular, especially among those that appreciate role playing games. Wargaming miniatures come in a few different shapes and sizes. It can be somewhat confusing to newcomers to war gaming. Spend a little time doing some research and you will have all of the information that you need in no time.

One thing that newcomers need to know is that wargame and war game are two different things. A wargame is a representation of a military simulation. War game means the practise of war as it would be done in a military exercise. After doing some light reading, you should have no problem remembering the difference.

There are three different types of wargaming activities. Fantasy miniature wargames include such things as Lord of the Rings and other games that are similar. There are many types of fantasy games out there for RPG lovers that also have a great interest in using miniatures in their game play.

Historical wargames involve traditional battlefields for the game to be played on. This could be any historical event such as the Civil War or those battles that took place many years ago between the Romans and the Greeks. Historical wargames are great for learning more about the actual events of those days. Those with an interest in their own history may especially appreciate this type of miniature play.

There are also naval wargames that involve recreations of battles like Jutland and Trafalgar. The type of wargame that you like may vary. Whether you enjoy just one type or all three, there is plenty to keep you busy when it comes to the world of miniature collectibles.

The many rules that are associated with wargames can be quite overwhelming at first. You may need to spend some time with the rulebook in order to gather as much information as you can before you attempt to play. Rule books can often be purchased anywhere that you can buy miniatures.

Miniature figures can be found in either metal or plastic. The price may vary by material but there is no certain one that is better than the other. Of course, metal miniatures may last longer than plastic ones but it is mostly a matter of personal preference.

If you want to play historical games then you may want to be carefully selective of your characters. Those characters found in fantasy games are often quite different than those in historical games so stay aware of what you need for certain game types. Itís always a good idea to know what you need before you go out to buy.

Do consumer research on various manufacturers before spending a large quantity of money on your miniatures. They come in a few different sizes and qualities so be sure that you are receiving exactly what it is that you are paying for. Miniatures are a great way to pass the time while having a lot of fun.
