Introduction

Axis & Allies Miniatures gives both novice wargamers and veteran grognards the ability to engage in historically authentic, squad-level tactical combat with detailed, 15mm(ish) scale, pre-painted plastic miniatures featuring varying degrees of rarity to enhance collectability.

A single skirmish can be played in under an hour, or, players can advance their custom-constructed squad through a meat grinder of combat, battling from the hedgerows of Brittany to the steps of the Reichs Chancellery.

Roll across the battlefield and on to victory. Amass an unstoppable fighting force of tanks, troops, artillery, aircraft and more - with the Axis and Allies Miniatures game. Challenge your friends to fast, head-to-head, skirmish combat. Recreate historical battles from World War II. Ready to play - no painting, no prepping.

This high-quality skirmish game is playable right out of the box. With these faithful reproductions of real WWII combat vehicles and fighting units, you can recreate historical battles from World War II with authentic Shermans, Panzers, infantry, and more! Or create your own battles!

Scale Variations

The first five sets available in the game are in the original scale. In 2006, Wizards of the Coast changed the scale of the minis. All future expansions will be in 15mm scale.

12mm Scale Expansions

Base Set
(48 minis, released 2005)
The core for your War - troops, tanks, and more that form the basic building blocks for the game.

Set II
(45 minis, released 2005)
An expansion that introduces three new unit types (snipers, paratroopers, and cavalry) as well as troops from China, Poland, and Romania.

Contested Skies
(45 minis, released 03/2006)
Help from above. Contested Skies features fighter planes, antiaircraft guns, tank destroyers, motorcycles, forward observers and more.

D-Day
(45 minis, released 06/2006)
The assault on Fortress Europe begins with D-Day. Highlighting units and nations involved in Operation Overlord – including the debut of Canadian troops – D-Day features the introduction of battlefield obstacles: immobile, non nation-specific units like pillboxes and tank traps that add to the realism of game play. Fan requested favorites like the Supermarine Spitfire and Jagdtiger also roar into action.

Reserves
(45 minis, released 11/2006)
Escalate with the experimental. Deploy some of the most innovative and unusual units developed for the war, scramble fast-moving jets, and establish superiority with support units. Includes fan favorites such as Ranger and Fallschirmjäger units.

15mm Scale Expansions

(from this point on is where the scale of the minis changed, increasing to 15mm, rendering the earlier vehicle minis noticeably smaller in size from the new vehicles)

1939-1945
(60 minis, released 10/2007)
The Axis & Allies 1939-1945 is made up of fan favorites pulled from previous Axis and Allies Miniatures expansions, including an uncommon T-34. Included in the new starter are new full color maps.

North Africa 1940-1943
(60 minis, released 03/2008)
The Desert War is on in this new expansion set for Axis and Allies Miniatures. This 60 piece set contains many new units that fans have long petitioned for, such as the British Matilda, trucks and many new infantry units. Most of the units in this set are painted in desert paint schemes.

Eastern Front 1941-1945
(60 minis, released 12/2008)
Focusing mainly on German vs. Russian troops. Added Finnish units.

Early War 1939-1941
(50 minis, released 12/2009)
Early War 1939 - 1941 will feature units from 13 different nations, the most ever in a A&A Miniatures release! Belgian, Slovakian, and South African units make their debut.

Counter Offensive 1941–1943
(50 minis, released 10/2010)
