After The General faded, The Courier was one of the oldest game magazines in existence until its own demise in 2005. It was begun in 1968 by miniaturists Dick Bryant and Bob Beattie, as the newsletter of the New England Wargamers Association. The magazine underwent a reboot in 1979, with a change to a glossy format. Subtitled "America's Foremost Miniatures Wargaming Magazine", The Courier featured regular columns and articles on making, collecting, painting and gaming with historically accurate miniatures. The magazine was inducted into the Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts & Design's Hall of Fame in 1997.
In 2005, publisher Legio X purchased the magazine and ceased publication with issue No. 91, creating a new title in its place, Historical Miniature Gamer Magazine.
