I recently discovered that I have a fetish for Colored Miniatures in Games.
Not Miniature Games such as Shadespire, but Board Games.

Not Those Expensive Pre-Painted ones either (I haven't reached the stage where I have gotten to painting miniatures yet but one day... who knows).

But those yellow, blue, purple, red, etc.... you know what I mean.

Especially those with decent gameplay.

Which games do you know that have Colored Miniatures and solid gameplay?

I think this was the game that really made me uncover this fetish.

Seeing this game in my cupboard makes me feel so contented.

So much colour, so much vibrance, so much beauty

This game is the main reason why I created this list!

I had this game twice and sold it both times although it currently sits at Number 10 on my all time list.

While I love love love the auction mechanic, I just got a little too ticked off at the potential kingmaking aspects of it coupled with the luck of the dice rolls.

Anyways - the miniatures here aren't much to shout about (given the current way KS are moving. I was in awe the first time I received the creature minis back then). It's really the gameplay that shines a little more.

This SHOULD have been the first game on the list.

Except it isn't. Somehow Cthulu wars doesn't seem as accessible or intricate as the others on this list, and exudes a sense of "bloated-ness" whenever I see it.

I can't use beautiful to describe a game like this. It remains rather well regarded though.

Dungeon Crawls aren't really my thing.

I have Mansions of Madness first edition and Arcadia quest (both sadly non colored) and I think it's quite enough for me.

I think Descent has some of the slightly better minis, just that in terms of 'color', the options are fairly limited

A bit of a waste that I missed the chance to acquire this game 2 years ago.
Having said that, I really don't enjoy skirmish type of games.

The vibrant colored minis really injected freshness into the 2nd edition

If I loved skirmish games, I would have gobbled this up.

In terms of its overall color palette with the creature miniatures and the game board, I feel it was an upgrade over Cyclades in terms of presentation.

And... I have this game and it remains sadly unplayed.

The quality of the minis here are a big reason why I haven't invested in other types of miniature based medieval games.

This appears as the only sci-fi game in the list until someone adds in another one...

I think the minis themselves look really good

I must say - one of the most visually appealing on this list overall.

I am a sucker for such , although with Blood Rage and Rising Sun in my inventory, I simply could not find the means to own this.

I love the whole blue-orange-green-white minis combination though, its really appealing. I might grab this game JUST for this plus the artwork eventually.

For all its style and amazing artwork which I absolutely adore, for this subject matter we are dealing with I think Scythe's minis/meeples are one of the more unappealing ones in this list.

Just an opinion, saying so that Mechs lovers dont need to overreact...

Just backed this!

I love the theme, the lore, the differentiation of characters and in my opinion an excellent choice of colors... It is so meaningful to play a game with such a strong backstory

Eric Lang at it yet again with Coloured Pandas this time.

I wouldn't even consider getting this game without the colored minis which also come in purple and orange.

Can't wait for this game to release.

More for the theme and gameplay than minis though

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

This game had colored plastic minis well before the modern boardgame movement started to adopt them.

Nice pastel colours and pretty little minis. But be carefully getting them out of those sprues!

Its expansions have even more colors for minis (even one is translucid)
