The best miniatures board games 2021

Looking for a really good miniatures game? We've tracked down the best miniatures games 2021 and compiled them into a list.

What are miniatures games?

Miniatures games are games that use miniature figures and objects to orchestrate the scenes of the game. In such games, the miniatures are the key components, and the game represents the environment of the miniature.

Miniatures not only in war games

Miniatures are often used for table-top war games, but are also useful in role-playing games and are becoming more popular as the production value of the board game increases. They are made of metal, plastic or resin, although miniatures made from cut-out cards can also be used (some even free from the net). There is even a separate market for miniatures that can be bought pre-painted.
