Military Miniatures Magazine

Media Information


Description

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.
