Wargame is 战争游戏 and tabletop game is 桌上游戏 so i'm assuming that "Tabletop Wargaming" is 桌上战争游戏? Is this the term used?

This type of game is also called "Miniature Wargaming" or "Miniwargaming," is there another word for this is Chinese?

(I am referring to tabletop strategy war games played with miniature figures and terrain).

At least on the Chinese Wikipedia article about Warhammer 4000, 桌上战棋游戏 is used.

Perhaps "minature wargaming" can be referred to as 微縮模型戰棋? – Krazer Feb 13 '12 at 16:40

I think the answer should be 陆战棋 or 军棋. Although in the original designs the pieces don't look like figures, the game rules are similar.
