To me paper and flats still count as miniatures – not that I have any – but high marks to those who do, especially flats – people who paint flats usually do a great job!

POLL DESCRIPTION

What do you think a miniature is? I am interested in seeing what different people class as miniatures within the hobby. To me, a miniature would look real if made less miniature.

For example get a 1:300th miniature of a tank and make it 300 times bigger, and it will (in theory) look like the real thing.

But get a cardboard counter of a tank and make it bigger, it will just look like a big cardboard counter. You will not convince people it is an actual tank, being flat will not help for starters.

I view a miniature as something that is smaller than normal, not an abstract smaller version of the normal-sized thing. If you get what I mean?

So, what is a miniature to you...
