A company producing lead miniatures for role-playing games and wargames. They also produced historical miniatures, as well as generic fantasy ones. Most notable were their licensed works, for games such as Call of Cthulhu, Traveller, DC Heroes, West End Games's Star Wars.
As almost every producer, they supported both 15mm and 25mm in their time. It seems that Grenadier folded sometime in the nineties, I never saw any miniatures from the latter nineties.
Amongst their sculptors, there are illustrous names such as Janine Bennett, Bob Charrette, Andrew Chernak, Mark Copplestone, Michael Daley, Sandra Garrity, Julie Guthrie, Nick Lund, Bob Naismith, Ian Symonds and William Watt.
Amongst collectors of miniatures and old-time gamers who were along for the exciting ride of role-playing games and war games in their heydays of the late 1970s through the mid-1980s, Grenadier was the most popular, recognisable, and accommodating miniatures company around. Without a doubt, Grenadier in its twenty years of business manufactured more miniatures, more exclusive lines, and more types of miniatures than any other gaming miniatures company in history.
