I'm looking for a nice selection of miniatures - possibly in a board game. I mean, I see Descent 2nd, Arcadia Quest, etc. What are people's favorite games? And favorite miniatures? I can't quite tell which games provide a good selection of good quality miniatures at a reasonable price.

Mechs and Minions was a lot of fun.
Maybe Ogre.
Lords of Hellas coming out next year is very popular, forum wise.
Zombicide


Miniature Games
Wings of Glory
Star Wars: X-Wing
Star Wars: Armada

But like all miniature games there's a bit of collection going on.

If you aren't super interested in the board game part of it, you may want to jump in on the Reaper Bones KS #4.

They have these kick-starters periodically and it is a great way to get a ton of cool minis for relatively cheap. This one has concluded, but you will be able to late back it soon. See the KS page. And of course there will likely be more KS to come, next year I expect.

Massive Darkness, hands down. Best variety of models and you can pick up a Kickstarter pledge relatively cheap right now. $150ish, plus you get an entire playable game and tiles along with it!

If all you want is great miniatures and don't care about quality of game-play nor effective play-testing then you should back the next CMON Kickstarter. CMON makes great miniatures and the KS stretch goals usually double the plastic from the base box.

The stretch goals and exclusives typically break aspects of the game due to shoddy rules and play-testing, but they look great.

How would you rank the games (say Descent 2E, Massive Darkness, Gloomhaven, Myth, Arcadia Quest, Krosmaster Quest, Masmorra, and any others you like) in terms of miniature quality? Miniature number? Game playability and rules?
