The Long Island Historical Miniature Collectors Society (LIHMCS) is a group of artists and modelers
located in the New York City and Long island vicinity, devoted to creating, painting, collecting, studying,
and displaying miniature figures, whether they be soldiers, fantasy, Sci-Fi, all are included. Figures of all
forms are welcome and sought after, from Hollywood movie characters to the US Army Grunt or Knight in
armor. The focus is to teach new members the state of the art techniques of sculpting and painting
miniature models. Our club includes some of the top sculptors in the field, including some of the most
prolific GI Joe sculptors of the last twenty years. We Have many Master modelers and painters who look
to help newcomers improve and perfect their skills. All mediums are discussed, from oils to acrylics to
hobby enamels.
The Long Island Club (formally known as the Long Island Military Miniature Society) and at one time even
SLIME (the Society for Long Island Miniature Enthusiasts), was formed in 1981. Since then the Society
has remained a friendly group devoted to the enjoyment of creating and collecting miniature people.
