Miniature tabletop and boardgamers, what are your top 1-3 favorite games based on the following criteria:

1) Mechanics and feel
2) Accessibility, support, and community
3) Quality and diversity of minis
4) Customizability
5) Ease and time to play
6) Price and investment
7) Nostalgia and unique personal preference

I look forward to your input!

I love:

1) Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) and I think the mini's are fantastic. Game play is great and replay ability is awesome. I am glad that they changed the Lieutenant's powers a bit.

2) Warmachine Prime Mk II is one of two Miniature games that I plan to get more involved in. The rules are fantastic and simple to learn and play.

3) Malifaux The mini's are fantastic! I love that the model count is low so it's not a bank breaker. The world is cool, and the rules fairly straight forward.

Runners up include:

Mansions of Madness

Middle-Earth Quest
