I'd say it was the outer edge of miniature warfare, but still within the borders. For comparison, I'd rate a game played with the black on colored paper overhead views which came in the old Napoleon's Battle box as (just) on the other side of the line--a historical wargame, but not a historical miniatures game, even though the rules were also used for historical miniatures.

(And does anyone remember the company which did the same thing with tricorn figures?)

Oh. And I actually use Junior General trucks and prime movers in my cheap 1/72 miniatures game. Enough trucks and half-tracks to move everyone would cost more than the rest of the project put together.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Someone once said:

Playing with two-dimensional paper 'stand up' figures or elements is not miniature wargaming because they ignore the modeling half. It's gaming alright, but not miniature wargaming. Agree or disagree?
