In the 1960's Gregory Dean Scott had a very serious in military history interest and was looking what was soon to be called "wargames". At the time most small vehicles were 1/87 scale, making them too large to play wargames anywhere but a gymnasium floor.
He set off to pioneer microscale gaming in 1/285th scale pewter miniatures trademarked "Micro Armour". This scale allows wargamers to make the most of their available space. Micro Armour became very popular and set the scale for which wargames were played.
Later, he released the first 1/1200th scale for navel gaming trademarked "Micronauts. WWI, WII, and Modern ships followed suit. In the 1980's Terrain Maker was released which allows a modeler to create any type of terrain they choose.
GHQ now has a wide variety of products, not only for wargames, but for the model railroader. You can find HO and N scale cars, trucks and construction equipment.
