    Axis & Allies Minis for me as well. I am taking baby steps in miniatures painting, so perhaps Flame of War may be on my horizon; the vehicles are awesome, though I'm not sure what I think of the cartoonish infantry figures just yet.

    It's technically not a minis game, but I adore Memoir '44!

      If you don't mide, please post why when you answer.

      Funny, I never played much miniatures growing up, but it seems like in the last couple of years I've really been bitten by the bug. But I'm a player, not a painter.

      My current fave is "All Things Zombie." What can I say? I love zombies. You can also play it solitaire, which is highly unusual for a miniatures game. It's got a rather unique reaction based system that creates a lot of interesting games, despite it's simplicity.

      I've played a fair amount of Flames of War (Germans and British) and can recommend it whole heartedly. Easy combat system (in general) but enough detail to make for some interesting battles. Very active and supportive community.

      I've also been playing a couple fantasy/sci-fi games that are interesting: "Warlord" (Fantasy) and "No Limits" (Sci-Fi). Both of them are cheap and you can proxy miniatures pretty easily. No Limits has *no* rules about which miniatures you use. And it's rules are free!

        Axis and Allies Minis.

        No I realize there are better rules systems out there. But A&A minis are ok looking pre painted and it's kid friendly.

        I'm only into minis for light wargaming. If I want a serious wargame, I'll get out the cardboard instead. Not that minis isn't serious, it's just not my thing when I'm feeling serious.

        Now ideal would likely be a good rules system, and a large collection of 1/72nd stuff. But heck I don't have enough lifetime needed to get it painted.

        Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
        I didn't for a long time either.

          Hah! You ought to try to get a 1500 pt (standard build) Russian Infantry army painted for Flames of War!

            Note that Fantasy Flight Games (Tide of Iron) is now distributing AT-43, which is a decent SCI-FI game. (At least the figures and terrain are pre painted!)

              Very well stated! My thoughts exactly.
