Miniature wargaming has evolved a lot and would require a survey by itself. The days when all the wargames where played with large armies on 4x6 tables are long gone. Skirmish games of 10 or less models per side has gained in popularity in the last 5 years. Many players now refuse to buy in large model count games. Most companies with large games now offer a skirmish variant of their rules in the hope of stopping the lost of customers.

The most recent trend is the miniature skirmish game on a small battle board. GW's Shadespire and Corvus Belli's Aristeia are good exemple of this new trend. Most probably a reaction to the explosion miniature skirmish boardgames sold on Kickstarter. Lines are blurry. Are they board games or miniature wargames... A bit of both maybe because the hobby side remains part of the attraction.
We have room for more threads! :) :)

You play board games on your phone??? :?

What's the world coming to! Next you will be telling me that you can play tabletop RPGs on a computer, with people who are not even in the same room watching you! :shock:
