Hey all! I am searching for games with miniatures that have rotating bases. I have found a few but I am sure I am missing some. Can anyone help me out?
Here is what I have found so far and examples of what I am looking for. Thanks for anything you can offer!

Heroclix by Wizkids-http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NjAzWDYwMA==/z/gxoAAOSwrmdTrADy/$_...

Mage Knight may not be the first, but it's the first one to come to mind.

If you mean the bases like heroclix that are tracking stats, then you also have HorrorClix, HaloClix (there was a non-heroclix compatible version) and Crimson Skies.

Perfect! They must all be by wizkids? They look really similar.

Yes, WizKids owns the patent on that physical design.

shake These did NOT wholly "owns" the 'concept' of a "wheel dial" that displayed information for when you 'aligned' differing sections of this together.

World of Warcraft Miniatures Game

Most are by WizKids, since, while they didn't invent the idea of a dial with stats on them, they ARE the first to release a game that put them directly on the bases of the miniatures, as far as I know. Holding a patent would certainly support that theory.

Personally my favorite of their games was Mage Knight Dungeons. The biggest downside to their system was that it got crushed under the weight of the expansions... Every new ability was a new colour or shape, so you'd have conversations like:

"Is that a yellow circle, a yellow square, or a trick of the light?"
