Are Painted Minis Essential to Miniatures Wargaming? – Wargaming Recon #113

Are Painted Minis Essential to Miniatures Wargaming?

Inspired by Sam Mustafa’s column in Wargames, Soldiers, and Strategy issue 71 (Buy the PDF) Jonathan editorializes on the the necessity, or lack thereof, of painted miniatures. As a current non-painter Jonathan approaches the question of “What exactly is our hobby?”

Karwansaray Publishers sought responses from wargamers about Sam’s column. They hit up The Miniatures Page and the Wargames, Soldiers, and Strategy Facebook page.

In Jonathan’s editorial he discussed his 1/72 scale (20mm) Imperial Roman project for Hail Caesar. Photos of the project can be found on the Wargaming Recon Facebook page.
