Rackham was a French miniature and role-playing games production company founded in 1997 (although the catalogues show a date range starting ©1996). Rackham had over 70 employees, including designers, illustrators, writers, sculptors, painters, foundry-workers. The company's main product was the miniature wargame Confrontation, which has been translated into five languages and marketed in 41 countries. In 2006 Rackham published the role-playing game Cadwallon set in the world of Confrontation. In 2006, Rackham released a sci-fi squad level wargame called AT-43. Rackham had also released a boardgame called Hybrid. Confrontation was quite a success and went through 3 versions. Rackham's line of metal eventually went to plastic Pre-Painted Miniatures. After many difficulties in the years 2008-2010, the company was sent in liquidation, many moulds being sold and the line of metal discontinued. Cyanide Studio and Legacy Miniatures recently acquired the rights for the full Rackham-Confrontation Catalog.
