Game Craft Miniatures

Game Craft Miniatures

About

Hello, I am Allen Rockwell. I am the owner and operator of GameCraft Miniatures. When you place an order here, I'll be the one that oversees the making of your miniatures and often I'll be the one doing the actual work, and I am the person you will be dealing with when you write an email or call the shop.

GameCraft Miniatures is a company that has been a dream of mine for about 30 years. I started gaming with Micro Armor in the late 1970s with my friends in Lomita, California on a sand table in my friend Robert's back yard. I built a pretty impressive collection of 1/285th scale modern armor and aircraft; much of it heavily modified and even some pieces scratch built. Eventually, I graduated from 1/285th scale wargaming to full-scale wargaming when I joined the US Army in 1983. After returning from service in the Army I went to work as a Wind-Tunnel Model Maker for Northrop Aircraft in Hawthorne California. Since that time, I have moved around between a few companies as a professional model maker and eventually, along with a good friend, I ended up buying the company I was working for in the mid 1990's, A&M Model Makers. Many years later, I sold my portion of A&M Model Makers to my business partner and started working on my dream of creating GameCraft Miniatures. So, while it may seem that GameCraft simply sprung up out of nowhere on March 10th 2009, it's really been in the works for about 30 years.

I have my own Micro Armor blog If you are interested in 1/285th scale (6mm) gaming, you may find it interesting.

If you have any questions or comments or need any help at all on anything, please feel free to email me personally at allen@gcmini.com

GameCraft is my full-time job, and I'm always here for you. However, my shop schedule is opposite of most people as I work the "overnight" shift in the shop. So, reaching my phone is not always easy,,, but if you would rather call than email, you may do so on 760-363-2007, just please expect that you will probably be leaving a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Bend Sinister
A varied collection of strange and obscure items collected during my travels through the years.

A lot of the things in here are items I've needed to play various games.

Redline

Redline
A range of 10mm Napoleonic figures. This range has been purchased from Mark Rowsell of Flashing Blade. I will be adding to the catalogue during 2009.

Blitzkrieg12

Blitzkrieg12
A range of N scale WWII miniatures, concentrating on the early war Blitzkrieg period. This is something I started whilst running BoltAction. I really hope to add to the catalogue this year, at least to embellish the Polish range during 2009. It has spent at least two years on the back burner whilst BAM was taking all my spare time.

Mitre
10mm Marlburian figures suitable for all those succession wars.

My name is Simon Bargery, I used to run BoltAction miniatures with Paul Hicks, this place is my new venture.

I play a lot of DBA, some Hott, Warmaster, Warmaster Ancients, CWC, BKC, Wings of war, Air wars and Victory at Sea. I'm looking to learn as much as I can about Napoleonics and to sample as many of the rules that are available.

About

Minifigs™ was founded by Neville Dickinson back in 1964. Neville, one of the founder fathers of the Wessex Wargames Club, (Telephone: Ian Gould 02380 730912) started from the basement of No. 5 Northam Road, Southampton. With a casting machine and vulcanizer he set about making his own figures. Not long afterwards, Dick Higgs, fresh from Art College in Portsmouth, started to design the figure that he required for his army and asked Neville if he would cast them for him with the statement "As long as I get what I want you can do what you like with the rest". Well it didn't take long for the word to get about that Dick's designs were worth having and the pair of them were in business.

Minifigs™ moved to 100A St. Mary Street in 1967 and I remember Dick sat in the shop window designing and dealing with customers and Neville looked after the production side of things. The business was finally incorporated in 1968 and is generally regarded as the oldest established war games manufacturer still in existence. The company grew and moved to larger premises in 1972. This was 28/32 Northam Road, Still in Southampton, and it's fair to say this is where Minifigs™ really took off. In 1973 Minifigs™ America was set up in Pine Plains, New York 12567. The company led the world in design, quality and sheer quantity of figures available in any range.

Dave Higgs, current owner and principal designer, joined the design team in 1974. At this stage the company was just thinking about 15mm figures but Dave's job was to redesign 25mm English civil war, Seven years war, Hundred years war and finish off the additions to the Napoleonics. It was during this period that Dick created the "Valley of the Four Winds" and various other fantasy ranges such as "Mythical Earth". In 1986 Minifigs™ secured the licence to manufacture and distribute the Ral Partha range of Fantasy which took the world by storm. So here you had the firm that did everything that was worth having. Minifigs™ ruled the world, it was a nice feeling.

The Eighties and Nineties however were decades of mixed fortunes for the hobby. Many of our competitors did not survive but despite computer games and magic cards we are proud to still be serving the war gamer. Neville Dickinson retired in October 97 and Dave Higgs took over.

On the home front, (i.e. Historical figures), Minifigs™ launched it's 12mm (N gauge model railway scale) World War Two range in 1998. As of 2007, this consists of American, British, French, German, Japanese, Russian and Italian forces sufficient to cater for Europe, North Africa and the Far East. These are accompanied by a very user friendly set of rules.

The 12mm Moderns range was launched at the beginning of 2004 and currently covers the armed forces of America, Australia, Britain, Israel, Russia, Vietnam and West Germany. This allows the gamer to play conflicts such as the Vietnam War, the Cold War, the Arab-Israeli Wars and the Gulf Wars. Again, these are accompanied by a very user friendly set of rules.

In September 2009, Miniature Figurines was sold to Caliver Books.
