Warning! Work in Progress
This list came about through a thread in the On Board Games guild forum after an episode OBG 124: Places to Build and People to Kill where low-entry-cost Miniatures games were discussed.

Gentlemen:

Several times you mentioned that there are smaller, low-barrier-to-entry minatures games requiring fewer minis out there. Song of Blades and Heroes was one you specifically mentioned. Are there others? Anyone care to compile a short geeklist?

Thanks!

Wow! Sorry I missed this post!

Yes - I like Song of Blades and Heroes, but there are a mountain - Mantic are publishing some great stuff like Dreadball, Deadzone, and others, Osprey publishing have started releasing some great little rule sets - for which you can buy any miniatures line that suits - and some fo these are great games!

Here are some geeklists:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/158107/28mm-skirmish-l...
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/47234/skirmish-games
And I thought "time for a meta-list" 'cos I'll never remember why I bookmarked that thread, or which thread to look for when I need the list. Plus: somebody else will maintain the individual GLs, all I need is for people to add new GLs as they find them. Sweet!
