Are there any other war/strategy games besides Tide of Iron and C&C system games that have hexes with miniatures?

Its an oldie but for Wooden Ships Iron Men there were several companies that made mini sailing ships that were the perfect size for the std hex board.

Also, there are more than a few WW I, and maybe a few WW II, air games that also use stand mounted minis on hexagonal bases for their games. Any of these have a high visual appeal.

I guess its a wargamer thing.

Thanks

Ron

I checked the page and Warrior Knights doesn't use hexes for the map.

What about Ventura. It doesn't use miniatures but still has some plastic pawns.

Viktory II.

There are a couple of Axis and Allies clones that use hexes but I cannot recall the names. Sorry.

Runewars. Well, there are hexes...

Some air warfare games qualify, notably Canvas Eagles. There's no reason you couldn't use miniatures with Cry Havoc; I think at one point they recommend it. Finally, it isn't hexes but Sergeants Miniatures Game: Day of Days has geomorphic tiles that make the landscape--same principle.

They're squares, not hexes, but Dust Tactics comes to mind.
