Last year we worked with College Humor on the production of their “Dimension 20” series for Dropout TV.
Here is the synopsis of Dimension 20 from IMDB “Welcome to the land of dragons, wizards – and guidance counselors? Game Master Brennan Lee Mulligan presents CollegeHumor’s very first RPG with an ’80s twist.”
We provided them with many building kits, some the built straight of the box, others were modified by their model and prop guys. We also supplied them with several modified kits and many custom pieces as well.
We worked closely with Rick Perry, the Production Designer and we got them what they needed in the time frame they needed it, often shipping custom parts the same day they were ordered.
Having been a full time commercial model maker my whole life and working with the entertainment industry from time to time, I went into this understanding that when a production calls to say they need something, they need it yesterday. I’m really happy that we were able to accommodate them every time.
The photos we are sharing are from the show and behind the scenes. Most shots include a GCmini kit, a modified kit, or some custom made bits we did just for the show.
Test of honour is back on our shelves with its new rendition, version 2. The new starter set comes with everything to get you started except the minis which are sold separately. The set includes the 72 page rule book, 8 dice, 67 counters, 40 recruitment cards, 5 trait and upgrade cards, 22 skill cards, 7 injury cards, 4 quest cards, 10 honour cards, and 10 dishonor cards. Check it out here at GCmini.com
Check out these new SPQR minis from Warlord games. They’re made of Warlords new resin which allows for a great texture and more crisp detail. They even say primer isn’t needed. The detail is definitely important as the chain mail doesn’t look like a blur and emblems on helmets are crisp. All of Warlords new SPQR minis use this sort of resin. Check them out here at GCmini.com
Introducing the all new bolt action support group sets. For use as supplemental aid to your main force are the Waffen SS, British Army, Fallschirmjäger, and US army support groups. Each set contains two officers, a medic, at least one radio operator/ spotter, a medium mortar team, and a medium machine gun. Check em out here at GCmini.com
Now at GCmini is the full range of the SPQR miniatures game from warlord. Unlike their previous ancient combat games this revolves around warband skirmishes not full armies. So you can move your units of romans in for a flank instead of moving your whole platoon. The game utilizes the dice of fate, which puts one player in position to choose who goes first. This definitely puts an emphasis on planning as double turns can occur. Not only that but SPQR features hero’s which unlike the minions of the game have stat boosts. With these combined with the fact that moving through terrain plays a massive part in gameplay, you get a unique skirmish game set in ancient times. Check it out here at GCmini.com
Now at GCmini.com we’re carrying Infinity, well most of it as it meets its namesake there’s a lot. Even the two player battle packs of which I’ll be talking about Operation Coldfront. The Operation Coldfront battle pack pits the Ariadna and the Aleph against each other. In this battle pack the starter sets for each faction is included meaning you’ll receive the following:
3x line Kazak
1x Tank Hunter
1x Veteran Kazak
1x Ariadna Scout
3x Dakini Tacbots
1x Shukra Consultant
1x Yadu Trooper
1x Deva Functionary
Not only those but two exclusives, an Armata-2 Proyekt Ratnik, as well as Nagas. On top of that you’re getting ten pieces of scenery as well as one battle map, keeping with the theme of the scenery. Of course you’ll get all that you need to play; six twenty sided dice, state/order markers, a ruler, a template, and a 92 page Operation Coldfront booklet. The booklet details the history and some interesting facts of each faction, as well as the quick rules to get you through your first game. The complete rule book is sold separately from this battle pack, but the booklet is enough to get you hooked. Get your starter battle pack now at GCmini.com There’s a variety of them, which we carry, but they mostly differ in the factions you get to start.
Hitting the waters of your gaming tables are the French as well as the Soviet fleets! Both of these sets are the starter packs for their respective armies in cruel seas.

As well as the usual markers and cards. The Soviet fleet comes with 1 Fugas-class Minesweeper, 1 Il-2 Sturmovik plane, 2 Bronekaters, 4 D-3 MTB ships, and 4 G-5 MTB submarines. As well as the standard markers and data cards. Come get em’ at GCmini.com
