These are currently perhaps the most popular miniatures. They are mostly put to use by people who play "Wargame". With extensive game rules, (historical) battles are reenacted with all kinds of miniatures. The miniatures are usually made of metal, but plastic figures are also used. The figures most frequently used are 28 mm tall, with figures of 15 mm and smaller sometimes involved in play. Although the games are often based on history, there is also a wide range of fantasy-themed games.
