Love to paint – painted stuff for a long time before I started gaming – still paint a lot more than game

Plus the playing with toy soldiers stuff

So many choices

Agree with the bottom line – "it's just so much fun"

POLL DESCRIPTION

Ron W DuBray Inactive Member wonders...

Why do you play tabletop miniature games?

I like playing games that let you use real world tactics getting believable outcomes, letting you practice the tactics.

Also, I like the look of a well-laid-out (real-looking/3D-photo-like) table and minis - even if it is a sci-fi or fantasy background game.
