It's the beauty of it all that attracts me to miniatures, especially medievals, which I do, and napoleonics, which I've been tempted to do for years.
That reminds me of the very first miniatures game I ever saw -- at a convention in Grass Valley, CA, in May 1972. It was a NATO-Warsaw Pact game with some pretty realistic-looking terrain. And the players used some kind of military-surplus viewfinder or periscope to get down-close views of what was going on on the tabletop.
