Critical Mass Games To Cease Trading

JBR here with bad news.

Critical Mass Games has announced that they are leaving the business, and are accepting offers for their inventory and intellectual property.  Per their website news page...


Well it is with some sadness that we are announcing Critical Mass Games will cease trading on April 2nd 2017. Both Dale and I who own and run Critical Mass Games have reached a point where our personal commitments are no longer compatible with running this enterprise with the passion and time it needs.
The 15mm Sci-fi community has show great support and loyalty since CMG came into being 10 years ago, and we are eternally grateful for the support you have shown.
In the coming weeks/months we hope to find a new home for the CMG product ranges so they can still be enjoyed.
Anyone wanting to enquire should contact
In the interim the 15% sale on the site shall continue until the CMG store is decommissioned on April 2nd 2017.
As part of this, and to manage down our stock levels, infantry platoon packs and vehicle platoon packs will be removed from the web store on Sunday 19th March 2017.

So, it's grim tidings.  Get what you can, while you can, for a discount.

The final curtain falls on April 2, 2017.

Craig and Dale are good people, and I wish them well.

  1. Another reminder that the companies we get our amazing little people from are largely one man bands with their own lives to look after... I never had the pleasure of painting any CMG figures but they're creative and interesting designs. Hopefully someone takes over production.

  2. That is sad news indeed.
    After they quit their terrain line and a few successful Kickstarters I had hoped they would stay in the business for a long time to come.
    Their miniatures are both unique looking and fun to paint. It's a shame to see them go.

  3. Its a big loss for the hobby if no one picks up this amazing range. The fact that they endured for a decade in such hard industry its an amazing achievement in itself.

  4. I just realised that the shop is already today and not in two days closed. What a pity. I would have liked to make a final order.

  5. Their website states that everything is being transferred to Ral Partha Europe, so the range has found a new home.
