Even Death May Die is a set of free wargames rules for Zombie apacalypse games. The author writes:

Clocking in at 33 pages and nearly 8000 words, “Even Death May Die” is a 28mm zombie themed wargame. It uses eight-sided die and features rules for user-constructed battles as well as a campaign game rule set! There are multiple factions in the game, including Survivors, Zombies, Bandits, and the Military.

Site News

Happy Birthday to MiniatureWargaming dot Com!

Today, MiniatureWargaming.Com celebrates its eleventh anniversary.

I started MiniatureWargaming as an attempt to organize and share all of the miniature wargaming related links in my favorites folder. It has since taken on a life of its own. There are, as of this writing, some 6,500 categorized, indexed and searchable blog entries. Each entry contains a link to a useful—and (mostly) free—wargaming resource, and a brief description of what you’ll find there. There are links to free rules, painting guides, terrain tips, modeling hints, scenarios, paper figures and terrain, historical resources and other fun and useful stuff.

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to visit. The fact that so many have found the site useful is a source of never ending amazement and pride.

About the Miniature Wargaming Hobby

Miniature Wargaming is part of the "adventure games" hobby, which includes r ole p laying and board games. Wargamers recreate battles on the tabletop with toy soldiers, like a more complicated game of chess. Models range in height from 6mm to 28mm tall, with 15mm and 25mm being the most popular. There also is a growing interest in toy soldiers and military models, such as the 1/32 and 1/35 scale plastic soldiers from Conte, and Marx.

The most popular miniature wargames are fantasy and science fiction based, such as Warhammer, Warhammer 40K, Warmachine and The Lord of the Rings. World War II games such as Flames of War and Axis and Allies are new favorites. Other favorite historical periods include Napoleonics, the American Civil War, and ancients, such as Romans or Greeks. Other gamers enjoy miniature naval wargames, recreating battles like Trafalgar, Jutland and the Coral Sea.

Hobbyists research historical periods and paint their tiny soldiers in accurate uniforms. Others develop "historically realistic" rules sets or build scale battlefield terrain using model railroad techniques.

For pictures, visit the gallery.

Some of the bigger hobby companies are Games Workshop, which produces Warhammer, Wargames Foundry and Old Glory Miniatures. Wizards of the Coast produces several lines of pre-painted miniatures games, such as the Star Wars and Dungeons and Dragons miniatures games, and a historical game with pre-painted miniatures: The new Axis and Allies game. Wizkids produces a fantasy collectable miniatures game, such as the Mage Knight and Heroclick fantasy games, the science fiction games MechWarrior and Rocketmen, as well as the quasi-historical Pirates of the Spanish Main.
