For the purposes of this list, a tabletop miniatures game is one that is (intended to be) played with miniature models, not counters or abstract "meeples", and that regulates distances by measurement, without any form of grid (hex etc) or area or point movement.

Please add games to make this list as complete as possible. However, no expansions please, nor multiple editions of the same game.

(Games that are playable with or without a grid are OK, but please add a note about this when submitting a game to the list or I may delete it as a grid-only game added mistakenly.)

NB: Lance maintains a similar list for grid-based games that are otherwise in a "tabletop spirit": Board constrained Tabletop Miniatures Games

Wings of War in space. Changes combat to dice based and includes ship customization (different pilots, secondary weapons and additional abilities and equipment) as a more fundamental component of the game.

Game usually played on a hex map, but the Rules Cyclopedia also presents rules to play the game as a pure miniature game, using the hex-counts in movements/range as inches, and each 1/6 turn costing one movement point.

There where also rules for how LOS and different scenery affected what part of the mech could be hit, IIRC.

So this variant qualifies as a proper miniature game.

"Warband" game about gang warfare in the WH40k universe. The rules are basically taken from (older editions of) WH40k, but adds detail and a campaign system where gangers can increase in skill and power.

Relaunched as Necromunda: Underhive. This plays on a board, but the expansion Gang War restores full 3D terrain like in the original.

Warband-level spinoff of Warhammer. Building on the basic warhammer mechanics, Mordheim adds rules appropriate for small skirmishes and a campaign and experience system.

We have X-wing highly rated, Wings of War/Glory as well - this is the Star Trek game based around similar mechanisms.

[EDIT]Crikey - it slotted straight in at Number 2!

Don't think this has a rating yet, but it is a miniautre table top game as per the perameters of the list so it should probably be included. It is a fun game, but it is complex and there are some translation issues.

As has been observed before, fuel and spare parts seem to be in remarkably plentiful supply after the collapse of civilization. Anyway, this is Osprey's foray into the Mad Maxesque genre of postapocalyptic vehicular combat. Has X-Wing-like manoeuvre templates and a system for designing your own vehicles. The cars seem to be rather more shiny-looking than is typical of the genre.

Newly published (July 2015).

Wizards, their assistants or acolytes & their warbands plundering treasure and artefacts from a frozen ruined city.

D20-based rules for fantasy skirmish scenarios with spellcraft that can be linked together for campaigns, with RPG potential too.

This is currently on Kickstarter and expected for release next year. The description in the entry doesn't leave me very clear how it actually plays, but it's apparently skirmish to large skirmish in size.

Perhaps the most famous of all tabletop miniatures games. Also my first commercial miniatures game.

ETA: Now replaced, in GW's lineup, by Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

Warhammer at sea. Widely seen as among GW's best efforts, it sadly seems they have no intention of ever supporting it again, even as a specialist game.

This is quite popular, apparently, but I've never met anyone playing it. (Edit: I have now.)

Anyway, it's a company level WWII game written for 15mm models, and comes with its own dedicated miniatures range.

My only 10-rated miniatures game. Mechanically minimalistic (by the standards of miniatures games only!) it nonetheless has a lot of depth.

Primarily presented as a hex-and-counter game, it has a line of miniatures and rules for hexless play, even in the freebie intro print and play PDF Federation Commander: First Missions. Whole line of products, this is the primary starting point.

It's much more complex ancestor Star Fleet Battles never went hexless to my knowledge.
