I actually think it's more that miniature gamers aren't too aware of the many solitaire friendly boardgames that are out there. Just a short list of some pretty good (although some can take hundreds of hours) games:

London's Burning-Avalon Hill
Ambush-Victory Games
Silent War/Steel Wolves-Compass Games
The Hunters/Silent Victory-GMT Games
Enemy Coast Ahead-GMT Games
All of the DVG solitaire games; Phantom Leader, Tiger Leader, etc.
Space Empires solitaire scenarios
Melee/Wizard adventures
