The Story So Far…
Secret Weapon Miniatures was launched in September of 2009 with four core product concepts:
Even with more than 400 individual products those core values remain at the heart of what we do.
In 2010 we added the Secret Weapon Weathering Pigments to the catalog to bring high quality, pure pigments to wargamers and scale model hobbyists at reasonable prices with in-store support for retailers. That line now includes 23 individually selected, quality tested art and cosmetic grade pigments free from additives or fillers that will interfere with weathering techniques.
In 2011, with the help of Les Bursley, the Secret Weapon Washes joined the catalog to give hobbyists an alternative to the cheap, thinned inks being sold as washes by providing true acrylic washes with a liquid pigment base that can be used to wash, glaze or paint a model. Today there are 30 colors available with in-store rack support for retailers.
In 2012 we expanded to offer the largest selection of basing themes on the market, and introduced unique themed hollow designs like our “Blasted Wetlands” line. This selection continues to grow, and takes advantage of advances in 3D printing and milling technology to give us a level of unmatched precise detail.
In 2013 we’re refocusing on our “From The Ground Up ™” vision and expanding our line of weathering products, bases, terrain, and accessories — with an emphasis on model finishing, and comprehensive gaming and display environments. We also successfully funded the first four themes of our Tablescapes Tiles ™ modular gaming boards on Kickstarter, complete with matching bases and terrain, to give you a fully themed army, literally from the ground up.
