History

To talk about military miniatures is to talk about history. A fan of lead soldiers will hardly not be curious about the events that inspired such models. History and miniaturism are, therefore, linked interests for most hobbyists to the point of not understanding one without the other.

And, on the other hand, who does not collect miniatures of a given period without feeling an uncontrollable attraction to know more about it? 1898 Miniaturas is born with a challenge ahead, to awaken the undeniable interest of a period as unknown as exciting as that of 1898.
