Painting the town….. khaki

One of the most popular requests I’ve had in the eight years since starting Tommy’s War is for a paint set. After some thought I contact a few paint manufacturers and floated the idea of a British WW1 uniform set and was delighted when the prominent Italian manufacturer LifeColor agreed.

I supplied uniform references and we exchanged emails with potential paint mixes and am happy to report that I’m delighted with the outcome, a new set of six colours specifically created for this subject!


I’m pleased to be able to stock the set for sale as I think it’s a useful addition for modellers interested in the period. I’ll also be stocking one or two of the other paint sets that I think might be of interest, but if you want any of the sets from LifeColor then drop me a line and I’ll be able to order them for you.

There are a couple of important things to mention;

  1. Collectors Club discount doesn’t apply to non-Tommy’s War products, this is listed in the terms and conditions of the Collectors Club
  2. I’ll be continuing the focus on the figure range, not paints and have no plans for any further paint sets or collaborations

I hope you like the set and I really hope that it shows my determination to improve your modelling experience.
