We started tabletop wargaming with miniatures in the early 90's. Like many others it all started for us with a certain science fiction
wargame set in the year 40,000.
As we have become older many things have impacted the amount of time we have available to game, and the ease at which we can gather together. we thought to ourselves, "wouldn't it be great if we could play an authentic tabletop wargaming experience with minimal setup, and without the need to be geographically together".
Not to sound like Liam Neeson, but we have a perticular set of skills. Skills that will allow us to build the thing we crave. So we are!
We are building a new authentic tabletop skirmish game. However this game will be 100% digital. You will play it on your computer, but it will feel very much like a tabletop experience. You will chose your miniatures to battle with, build your roster, and finally battle in a familiar turn based sequence.
While the digital environment in which the game takes place will enforce the rules of the game, it will not lead you. As with regular tabletop games reading and understanding the rules will provide you with the core knowledge to be able to play the game; and as is true of all tabletop skirmish games, a solid grasp of the rules can provide you with a strategic advantage.
We're gamers just like you. We love to game and we love the hobby side of collecting and painting miniatures. Unfortunately we just don't always have the time for this, and we know the same is true for many of you.
Virtual Miniatures won't replace your existing tabletop gaming experiences. But it will offer an appealing option when you can't find the opportunity to set up a tabletop game.
Simply put, we want you to be able to game more, not less!
