WHO WE ARE
Magister Militum was founded in 2002 by Richard and Zoë Clewer. Our company manufactures and imports of some of the finest wargaming figures, scenery and accessories money can buy, with over 12,500 products on our website. We truly are Giants in a Land of Miniatures!
WHO DOES WHAT?
Richard has a degree in War Studies and a life long passion for history of almost all eras matched by an enthusiasm for wargaming and board games to be reckoned with. He researches new ranges and answers historical enquiries.
We have two fantastic spin doctors, a packaging princess and Zoë spends her time mainly maintaining and improving our website, including photography of newly painted figures - a never ending job!!
WHERE ARE WE BASED?
We’re based in two industrial units near Salisbury in south west England. This is where we run the manufacturing and mail order part of the business. Life changed a lot for us during the pandemic and now we are not able to get to Trade Shows as we used to. We are still attending the biggest one, Salute, and it is advisable to pre-order the products you'd like to have through our Trade Show page.
We have always worked to the principle of providing top quality, inspiring wargaming products. We sell historically accurate ranges, strong in breadth and depth, backed with expert knowledge in a professional manner for you, our customers.
Magister Militum came into being in 2002, when we began by importing Hallmark Miniatures 1:6000 ships back into the UK from their new owners in the USA. We soon progressed to manufacturing with the purchase of Navigator Miniatures 28mm ancient ranges and shortly afterwards bought the Chariot Miniatures 15mm range which spans the Biblical era to the Napoleonic Wars.
It was during this time that we began producing 10mm Crimean War figures of our own. After a chance conversation with Rick Priestly at a Society of Ancients day, we began a rapid expansion of our fledgling 10mm Ancients range in collaboration with Games Workshop’s Warmaster Ancients team. This huge range of 10mm figures includes the Medieval era, a massive Napoleonic and Revolutionary Wars range, WW1 and WW2 figures and indeed our scale model dinosaurs. Not to mention our absolutely enormous range of 10mm fantasy!
With GHQ we knew this was a range that couldn’t be beaten on quality or detail, so we had to make this excellent range easily available to you on this side of the Atlantic. We stock over 10,000 packs with deliveries on average every six weeks or so, so you’re never far away from 1:285 heaven.
We have a fair few accessories too - so much to explore throughout our website.
We’re always spotting and stocking new products to tempt and inspire you, the latest being 15mm Polly Oliver, Ozmy Oddzial 3mm and 15mm and Dark Sword Miniatures - which includes the Game of Thrones figures - as well as a festival of incredible fantasy figures.
