I consider both to be ‘wargaming’ so no line exists as far as I am concerned; it’s just different ways of simulating a complex issue. As a cash-strapped teenager in 1983, I developed a setup to play TTG Pony Wars using thick card to represent everything from the Indians (as suggested in the rules) to terrain and Gatling guns. Where would that fit? 😄

Personally, I found boardgames that use miniatures to be a bit fiddly to play. I always prefer nicely printed coloured counters. There is also something very pleasurable about running your fingers over a sheet of unpunched counters….
