George has a passion for 54mm miniature knights, so it was no surprise when Testors announced that a line of 54mm would be produced as part of their license. What was more eye-popping was the talent being brought together to bring these plans to life, with the likes of Tom Meier, Julie Guthrie, and Sandra Garrity being involved in the project. These 54mm metal miniatures would be considered advanced figures for more experienced hobbyists, requiring assembly and painting.
Despite the ambitious plans, only one of the figures have materialized: the Ruby Ford figures, depicting Robert and Rhaegar, sculpted by Tom Meier. Unfortunately, the figures as sculpted were intended to be kits rather than sold pre-assembled as Testors eventually chose to do, leading to large numbers of broken miniatures. On April 17, 2007 it was announced that the licensing agreement had expired and no further products would come from Testors.
Dark Sword Miniatures gained a license to produce a series of 54mm and 32mm miniatures, initially all sculpted by Tom Meier but since expanding to use other well-known sculptors as well.
