Dark Sword Miniatures was founded in 2002 by initially purchasing Larry Elmore concept figures from Ral Partha to include in their Elmore Masterworks collection. Since then they have added several other Masterworks series based around well-known fantasy artists (and now authors) as well as other product lines such as their Critter Kingdoms line. Miniatures are in 28mm scale with a handful of 54mm figures. Their website features a Miniature Finder. Website archived from 2003-06-04 .
