Military Miniatures Magazine is an electronic compendium of military history. The magazine in English, French, Italian, Spanish, and German was first published in April of 1996. The readership comes from a general public interested in military history, including scale modellers, painters, and collectors of military miniatures. New products are reviewed in depth, in historic context, and in a format which involves readers more deeply in a particular period of history. Readers are actively encouraged to visualize history, using sculpted miniatures, vehicles, buildings, and other suitable props.
Military Miniatures Magazine is a valuable resource for beginning modellers and experienced miniaturists. Historic painting guides, conversion and scratch-building ideas provide inspiration. A compilation of effective miniature modelling techniques empowers the reader to achieve more beautiful and realistic result. Online shopping provides the link between hobbyists, manufacturers, and retailers catering to a growing market.
