Dark Sword Miniatures, Inc. is the company of Jim Ludwig and is located in Minnesota, USA. Dark Sword quickly became renown as one of the best manufacturers of fantasy miniatures.
Three years into production it won the Origins Award for producing the best miniature line of 2004.
Jim Ludwig’s concept behind Dark Sword is to produce miniatures made by some of the best sculptors. These are based upon artwork of some of the most famous fantasy artists. The miniatures have been sculpted by Dennis Mize, Tom Meier and Dave Summers amoungst others. Inspired by the Art of Larry Elmore, Keith Parkinson, Clyde Caldwell and Jeff Easley – well knowned for being the “fab four” of TSR fantasy art. The result of this idea is a range of outstanding premium miniatures.
