Welcome to The Miniatures Page, the home of miniature wargaming on the Internet. A "wargaming miniature" is a scale replica of a soldier or vehicle intended for use in a game.

Here we cover everything from Ancient Egypt to the War on Terror, from haunted dungeons to dueling starships, from German panzers to Prussian lancers... and no historical era is too obscure!

Just click on anything that looks interesting - and if you get lost, clicking on our logo will always bring you back to this homepage.

Welcoming Cigar Box Battle Mats!

Please join me in welcoming Cigar Box Battle Mats as our latest TMP advertiser!

Cigar Box Battle Mats

"Cigar Box Battle Mats invites you to try out the newest and quickest way to have a wide variety of battlefields at your disposal!" writes Chris Ward. "Cigar Box Battle Mats are high quality battlefields produced on durable, washable fleece. They fold to a compact, easy-to-store size and are lightweight and portable. Plus, when you want to play they just unfold and quickly drape over a table, floor, or custom landscape!

"YOUR BATTLES ARE SET UP IN SECONDS! And, you can have multiple options ready to go at a moment's notice. No clumsy four-foot-long tube needed for storage.

"If you are looking for that detail that will take your battles to a whole other level visually, Cigar Box Battle Mats are your answer.

Cigar Box Battle Mats

"THESE BATTLE MATS DO NOT HAVE TO USE A FLAT SURFACE! That's right, you can build hills and undulating terrain under them!

"A variety of battle mat sizes, climates and locations are available, and we have designs that support scales of 28mm, 25mm, 20mm, 15mm and 10mm wargaming! We also offer a variety of designs that support gamers who want little or no specific terrain and are just interested in a climate, or for those who want all of the work done for them, completely finished designs that are all laid out (roads, rivers, trees, etc.) and ready to go!
