Are there any mini games on the cheaper side with an easy entry point and learning curve? I have an enjoy Arena Of The Planeswalkers and Sentinel Tactics (also purchased the minis) but am looking for something else as well. Thanks guys.

Do you want to the the hobby modeling and painting stuff?

Do you like star wars? (X-wing is pretty cheap if you don't need to own it all.)

Fantasy or Sci Fi mostly guys. Not really into building and painting either.

Boardgames or miniature skirmish games?

For miniature skirmish games, you can find free rulesets, so long as you use your own miniatures. The Miniatures Page is a good site for these games, and PM me if you're looking for a particular genre.

So really you are looking more for a board game (with plastic 3D game makers) then a 'miniatures game' devil

For 'cheap' board games with plastic figures you can look at Dungeons and Dragons Adventure System Board Games for fantasy and for sci-fi you might see if Abaddon which should be easily found cheap, but some people like and some hate.
