February 9, 2016 Update
Dark Sword is pleased to announce that we have purchased all rights to the highly acclaimed Hot Lead DVD Series from Laszlo Jakusovkly. We now have the much sought after Hot Lead - How to Paint a Better Miniature 3 DVD Set back in print and available for purchase. You can check out all of our miniature painting resources in our Online Store.
Dark Sword Miniatures Inc. was founded in 2002 with the single purpose of creating extremely detailed unpainted 28mm heroic gaming scale fantasy miniatures for both miniature collectors and gamers alike. We also have a small handful of 54mm unpainted pewter miniatures in our ranges as well. Fantastic realism is the best description of what Dark Sword Miniatures has become known for over the past 13 years as we approach 700 miniatures in our ranges.
Our unpainted pewter fantasy miniatures are in the newer heroic 28mm gaming scale which has become the industry standard over the past 15 years. In addition, we think you will be very pleased with the subject matter of our first four fantasy miniature lines which are based on the artwork of Larry Elmore , Keith Parkinson (RIP), Clyde Caldwell & Jeff Easley. All four artists have been gaming industry icons for the past 35 years now and their artwork needs no introduction.
In addition, Dark Sword Miniatures is
also producing premium pewter miniatures based on the works of
New York Times best selling author George R.R. Martin called A Song of Ice and Fire which is now also a hit series called Game of Thrones on HBO. And finally, we have added a couple wonderful fantasy artists by the names of Stephanie Law and Tony DiTerlizzi into the mix for new premium miniatures lines based on their artwork as well.
Dark Sword brings our miniatures to life in a style that can best be described as Fantastic Realism. To accomplish this, Dark Sword works with a very select core group of sculptors that includes: Tom Meier , Dennis Mize (RIP), Dave Summers, Jeff Grace, Patrick Keith, and Jason Wiebe. Other wonderful guest sculptors will jump into the fray from time to time with a piece or two as well. We also have some of the very best miniature painters in the world painting up our studio display models for your inspiration and viewing pleasure (as all of our models are sold unpainted and may require minor assembly). Marike Reimer, Jen Haley, Jessica Rich and Matt Verzani have painted up the bulk of the Dark Sword studio collection. Jumping in to lend a brush here and there when time permits are other award-winning miniature painters such as Susan Wachowski, Rhonda Bender, Alison Bailey, Michael Proctor, Aaron Lovejoy, Jen Kaufman and Zach Lanier.
