Awesome Arch Light Will Illuminate Your Workspace & Miniatures

For a while now, Game Craft Miniatures caught my eye. Recently, they sent me a shipment for review, and today we take a look at their LED Workbench Light.

Now, straight up, this is a product that I did not expect to like as much as I do. This thing is great! It literally bathes your miniatures in light from all angles while you work on your figures. This light contains two 21″ long LED Light Strips that work great as a “fill light” and helps to remove the shadows you see when working with traditional lights. If you want to get a hold of one of these for yourself, be sure to check it out afterward on Game Craft Miniatures.

This LED Workbench Light is absolutely fantastic! I did not think that I would like it as much as I do. Image from Must Contain Minis.

Building the Lamp – So Easy!!!

This American-made lamp by Game Craft Miniatures illuminates your work area in a light that feels soft and it works well as a “fill light” too. More on that later. It comes pre-assembled. All I had to do was attach the feet to the arch and the light was ready to go.

This is how the light comes packaged. All I had to do was attach the feet with some glue. Oh yes! This is made in America too!!! Image from Must Contain Minis.


Glue on the feet and the lamp is ready to go.

What is it Good For?

Well, illumination for painting, building, and photographing miniatures.

This lamp is great for painting miniatures, building models, and even for photography too. Personally, I find the lamp best when mixed with ambient light while painting or building minis, and when taking pictures, I will either pair up the lamp with some daylight temperature utility lights or use the light on its own.

For the picture below, I used only the LED light by Game Craft Miniatures.

This lamp really works well for painting, building, and photographing miniatures. My depth of field is a little off her, but what I want to demonstrate in this picture is how nicely it picks up the details on the entire body of the miniature.

And for my review of Wargames Atlantic Skeletons, I used only the LED Workbench Light by Game Craft Miniatures for that photoshoot.

For the train station review that I did last week on Bell of Lost Souls, I used the Game Craft Miniatures Lamp coupled with two 100W equivalent Daylight lamps.

In this image from last week’s review, I used the Game Craft Miniatures plus two Utility lamps to take showcase worthy pictures of the product.

If you want to know more about using the Game Craft Miniatures lamp for photography, I go deep into it in my YouTube Review of the LED Light. I also go deeply into it in my longer written review on my personal website. For here, I am going to quickly show you the difference in the photos based on how I use the light.

Above are the different lighting configurations that I used to review the LED Lamp and how the images looked. The extra lights that I used are 100W equivalent Daylight Temperature utility lights diffused with tissue paper. Image from Must Contain Minis.

As you can see, this lamp works really well for miniature photography.

YouTube Review

If you prefer watching over reading, below is my review of the lamp on YouTube.

Wrapping it up…

This LED Workbench Light, Double Wide, Extra Tall by Game Craft Miniatures is absolutely awesome. It is a product that I thought I would review and then pass along to a friend afterward. I like it so much, I don’t think it will be leaving my place. I love it! It works great for photography and for illuminating my workspace.
