Secondly it is a hobby that emphasizes in collecting since there are always some new releases of even better and better minatures. And lastly it is sort of a strategy game where you compete with your miniatures against those of another gamers.

It depends largely on the size of the armies how long the game takes, it can range from a skirmish of two small forces which is finished in an hour, to a battle that rages all day, when large armies are being fielded. There are gamers who see it as the epitome of the hobby to field massive armies in battles taking a whole weekend. But most games won't take longer than three or four hours and can be easily completed in one afternoon or evening.
