About CastScapes, LLC
CastScapes, LLC was initially conceived of by Garrett Taylor. Long frustrated in his search for small scale science fiction scenery for his role-playing and war games, he started to build his own. Spending far too many hours making terrain that never looked quite right, he saw a open niche. High quality, medium scale models buildings and terrain that could be in use today or in a millenia from now.
First proposed to Nick Salamunia, the idea was discussed and discussed. Plans were made and thoughts were traded. Garrett then mentioned this in passing to two others, Chris Sarna and Roy Stafford. Interest was peaked and with even more discussion and analysis, it was agreed. Garrett, Nick, Chris, and Roy would combine their strengths and form CastScapes, LLC. The rest, as they say, is history . . .
