Howdy Guys and Girls - and welcome to another Temporal Distort - a look back at the past of Citadel and Games Workshop!

Did you know that Citadel Miniatures did a lot of great stuff for Dungeons and Dragons? First, they brought Dungeons and Dragons to Europe, and later they announced that they would do an official range of metal miniatures. June 1985 saw the release of the first two box sets - with blisters and two citadel drakes later that year. Sadly, the range only saw eighteen months of releases - thanks to licence changes (D&D switched to Ral Partha) they had to sell off their remaining stock at a huge sale.

One of the best things about the blister range they made - you got 3 models in one blister, each representing the same character at different experience levels - awesome!

Let's take a look at some box art and models :)

Temporal Distort: Citadel's original Middle-Earth range (1980's)

Howdy Guys and Girls :)

Today I want to give you a look at the past of Citadel (and Games Workshop!). Did you knew that they used to do Middle-Earth stuff almost 30 years ago? Citadel took the middle-earth licence over from Grenadier in 1985, and the license passed to Mithril Miniatures around 1987 again. They also produced some alternate models including Orcs, Elves, Dwarves and the "army of the dead" which, funny enough, were later rolled into various Warhammer ranges once the Middle-Earth license was lost.
