I agree with you on this. At the school I teach at I had a group of 7th graders playing Advanced Heroquest and Warhammer Quest and there was no way I was going to let them ruin my miniatures. Also the stuff you have to carry becomes exceedingly lighter. When I played TFT, the only pieces I ever used for the game were either the counters supplied for the game, Cardboard Heroes, or all those extra blank chits that I saved from SPI and AvalonHill games with a semi-circle inked on one-side of the chit to show you where the front of the character was.

Yours in Cidri,

As one who has attended Los Angeles Gaming conventions for over 20 years now, I have always been fascinated with dioramas and miniatures (Napolionics, etc.) Though I don't play Warhammer, I was glad to see the industry start putting out scenery for 25mm miniatures.

About 1986 I started converting the TFT chit system to miniatures. I went to the inch system and set up terrain or 3-d dungeons. This has become my standard of playing TFT. It is bulky to tote around 60 trooper figures, 3 rolled felts, boxes of trees and housings. But I now enjoy TFT as a lead miniatures game. If TFT could be revived, I would give WarHammer players a real alternative!
