Miniature Wargaming The Movie was an organic development of identifying a niche market addressing my hobby and passion. I was interested to learn more and follow the journeys of a diverse range of subjects who were involved in the miniature wargaming industry in a variety of ways.
The industry still has a stigma that needs changing. The perception of too many of the general public is that its participants are all, “fat sweaty geeks” – nothing could be further from the truth. The industry attracts a diverse audience of individuals, all with their own interesting accounts of why they have become involved in the hobby. These people all have common ground: how miniature wargaming positively influences their lives. The industry is worth in excess of $1 billion, and its foundation is built upon a cottage industry. There are a small number of large players such as Games Workshop, but the focus of this production was to highlight the battles that the smaller companies face – these companies represent the majority of the industry.
