If your basing isn't 1 figure = 1 man then a base is effectively a counter. Love my minis though

POLL DESCRIPTION

How do you define miniature wargaming? How inclusive is your definition?

Are games which use miniature wargaming-style rules, but which do not feature actual miniatures, included?

Is a "map game" part of miniature wargaming?

Or playing a boardgame that uses plastic playing pieces in a common scale?

Or playing with counters substituting for based figures?
