View Star Wars Miniatures West End Games

The Star Wars miniatures line produced by West End Games was originally aimed at the roleplaying game and collectors audiences. The miniatures were produced by Grenadier Models under license from West End. Ten boxed sets were produced the first year. Five boxed sets were planned for the next year, but only four were produced before Grenadier opted out of the license.

West End Games then licensed Simtac to produce the figures, and the subsequent figures were released in blister packs of three figures. The bulk of the blister pack line was made up of figures from the boxed sets repackaged into the blister packs. After most of the existing figures were rereleased in that format, new miniatures were produced to flesh out and then add to the line.

By this time, the Origins Award-winning Star Wars Miniatures Battles and its supplements had been released, and many of the packs were geared to troop types supporting the miniatures game. Some of the packs were also aimed toward the roleplaying game market. Two packs were based on the ‘‘Heir to the Empire’’ series by Timothy Zahn, which was covered in a series of sourcebooks for the roleplaying game. Three packs were produced in support of the ‘‘Darkstryder’’ line of products for the roleplaying game. A small line of vehicles—cast in metal—was also produced.

Later releases were two troop packs—one of stormtroopers and the other of Rebel troopers—which were packages of ten existing miniatures, providing an entire unit of troops in one purchase.
