                                                                            These items are available in a variety of

                                                                            pewter, tin, and metal. Miniature soldiers
                   were originally used to teach different types of battle scenarios. Non-military wargaming was
                   introduced in 1898 when the general public used them to recreate various sea battles.


                   When wargaming miniatures were first produced, they instantly became collectible items
                   because of the high costs involved in the materials when putting together complete armies. In
                   the 1960s they were extremely popular as hex board wargames hit the market. They
                   remained popular throughout the 1970s and 80s as the miniatures were used for fantasy
                   games and other types of wargames.


                   Today, there are still several types of wargames that are popular around the world. These
                   include fantasy miniature games such as Warhammer, and The Lord of the Rings. Historical
                   battle games are also in style. These feature famous battles such as the Napoleonic wars, the
                   American Civil War, and ancient Roman and Greek armies etc. Naval games are still as
                   popular as ever as people love to recreate famous sea battles such as Jutland, and
                   Trafalgar.


                   Many of the games come with rules, but people also like to collect miniatures individually that
                   do not belong to any type of contest. These people just like to collect the items without any
                   type of games involved. Many people also like to create their own games and battle settings.
                   All types of terrains can be constructed to make them seem more realistic and they can be
                   combined with things such as model railroads. You can also decorate the miniatures by
                   painting the soldiers in accurate historical uniforms.
                 The miniatures are available in a variety of sizes (scales). 1:285 scale (6mm) is the smallest
                 and is also known as microarmour. However, the most common sizes are 15mm, 20mm, and
                 28mm. Earlier miniatures were typically smaller, but they have grown bigger over the years.
                 Model Ship wargaming is usually carried out with ships that are in scales of 1:1250 or 1:1200.
                 It is a good idea to find items that match if you are trying to build a set.


                 Many collectors can share their passion for the miniatures by joining a wargaming society or
                 group. This is an ideal to learn about the wargaming world as well as sharing your ideas.
                 Many of these societies host gaming wars and workshops.


                 You should be able to buy all types of miniatures at specialty stores as well as at collectibles
                 shops and trade shows. They may also be found at garage sales and auction houses. You
                 should also have no problem finding them for sale and/or trade on the internet. Simply type in
                 what you are looking for in a search engine and you should get a lot of results of sites that
                 deal in them. If you order any miniatures from an online outlet, it is a good idea to make sure
                 you insure them from loss and damage during shipping.
