I'm looking for a miniature wargame a bit more streamlined than Warhammer / Warmachine and similar, in particular I'd really like movement without the use of a ruler, so a grid or something else "fixed".

I know two of them: Dust Tactics and Deadzone. Are there others? I guess that something akin to the new Runewars would be kinda ok too, but I'd prefer other systems.

Thanks, maybe I should have been more specific in the op: I'm not looking for a small grid where every mini has its own square, but larger areas where you can put more than one or an entire squad, for example.

Maybe Forbidden Stars would work for you? There are currently no expansions, so if you're looking for something as expandable or customizable as miniatures games it won't work, but it's a great and in-depth dudes on a board game.

    Sergeants Miniatures Game may be worth a look, has some interesting ideas in it you don't find in other minis games. Rivet Wars is on a grid I think.

    If you're not concerned about minis the list expands to about 2500 entries. Storm Over Stalingrad is an example of a very simple wargame that really has some life to it.
