Citadel Miniatures Limited is a company which produces metal, resin and plastic miniature figures for tabletop wargames and was formed as a division of the British game company Games Workshop in early 1979.

Star Trek association

The company began to produce (unlicensed) Star Trek gaming figurine miniatures in the very early 1980s, capitalizing on Star Trek: The Motion Picture, by tying in on the multitude of aliens seen in the back-ground in that feature. In 1985 as a sub-licensee, Citadel released for the UK market starship miniatures, that were based upon the gaming materials originating from the FASA gaming miniatures, as indicated on the packaging. As far as the starship miniatures were concerned, apart from being mounted on different style cards, the models differed from their US counterparts in that for many models less construction was needed and that they were more detailed, due to the fact that the pewter had a higher tin content. Although that made the metal more brittle, it also made the metal harder than their relative soft US counterparts and thus more susceptible to retain detailing. Eventually, Citadel released fifteen out of the eventual 34 models FASA produced, when the latter lost its license in 1989. Citadel never had a direct license from the franchise, the moment Fasa lost its, so did Citadel. It should be noted that in the case of the figurine miniatures, that these were Citadel originals, not Fasa derivatives, as were the starship miniatures.
