Star Wars Miniatures Battles is a tabletop miniature wargame system produced by West End Games in 1991 and republished in a 2nd edition version in 1993. The first edition was winner of the Origins International Game Expo award for Best New Miniatures Rules of 1991. This game should not be confused Star Wars Miniatures by Wizards of the Coast, who acquired the license to Star Wars tabletop games after West End Games' license expired in 1999.

Details[]

West End Games initially produced boxed sets of miniatures from 1988 to 1990 intended for use with Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game, before a rulebook for a separate miniatures game was published. The Star Wars Miniatures Battles core rulebook was written by Stephen Crane and Paul Murphy, and published in January 1991. The rules included are for playing battles using the metal miniatures produced by West End Games. The stats included in the book can be easily converted to use with The Roleplaying Game. Blister packs containing groups of figures were released after the rulebook, including reissues of figures from the earlier boxed sets as well as all new figures, many based on characters from Star Wars' Expanded Universe.

The Star Wars Miniatures Battles Companion, published in 1994, was the first supplement and added vehicle rules and flight rules to the game. It also included errata and rules revisions, as well as new and optional rules, new equipment, a section detailing unit insignia and organization, and a collection of game scenarios.

The Imperial Entanglements book, published in 1996, was primarily a scenario supplement, but also contained updated errata and new squad stats.

Both the core rulebook and companion were repackaged in two boxed sets along with some miniatures, The Star Wars Miniatures Battles Starter Set and Star Wars Vehicles Starter Set respectively. A third set, the Mos Eisley Adventure Set which was targeted primarily to the RPG aspect, included not only some miniatures and maps, but a small supplement with a Miniatures Battles scenario. Also, the short run series of the Star Wars Adventure Journal had a few articles pertaining to the miniatures rules.
