Have almost painted the base set for Battlelore and as I start on the expansions I am looking for more options for a table top style game with miniatures to paint that will play well with 2 people, but can easily go up to 4 or more.

There are a huge number of miniature games available. I'd probably start poking around at: http://www.freewargamesrules.co.uk/ and see which ones you find interesting.

If you can give us an idea of what period you like and what scale of figures you might be interested in, we can probably narrow the list down for you.

Looking for table top style games (meaning to free form worlds where the tape measure has to come out.) Open to Dungeon Crawlers, Historical War (Medieval, Civil War, Ancient Rome/Egypt/Greece (scenario based or random deployment similar to CtA for Battlelore, Space or SCIFI themed.

Games I am currently browsing and trying to decide include.

Descent.
Runewars.
Tide of Iron
Memoir '44 (though that I think will be too close to Battlelore)
Shadows over Camelot
Age of Empires III
War of the Ring

I want to make sure I review and look over many options. I am playing with my wife primarily, but she is a huge Battlelore fan.

My favorite miniatures game is Mordheim: City of the Damned. The rules are free online and if the modelling aspect of the miniatures interests you, these miniatures are perfect.

Claustrophobia. Minis are already painted but you could repaint them if you wish.

Last Night On Earth has plenty of minis to paint but the game is Out of Orders for the moment.

Thanks for all the replies. Really looking for one that includes a board (either hex or geographically based aka War of the Ring or Battlelore). My gaming group most likely will not go for anything that requires tape measures etc.

Well 4th edition D&D can be played as a fantasy skirmish game, operating on a 1 inch square grid. Perhaps it could scratch your Dungeon Crawler itch.
