Methods of identifying location of miniatures for electronic wargame? Answered

Greetings,

I want to make a wargame with miniatures, and somehow have a computer detect the locations of the pieces so that is can keep track of things such as their health and experience.

Ideas:

- oOptically with a camera and barcodes on each piece, but that would require the surface be transparent with the barcodes underneath.

- Is there is possible to determine the exact location of RFIDs?

Any ideas?

Thanks

you're after something really complicated...
fixed locations and unique ident's could be done.
fixed locations where the 'board' notices a move could be done (chess)
