I’m pleased to share images of the latest releases from Tommy’s War in our 1/32 model kit range. The figures represent a late-war scene, set at one of the last major battles on the Western Front in World War One.
The battle of the Sambre-Osie canal took part on 4th November 1918 when British forces including the 2nd Manchesters and 2nd Royal Sussex crossed and took the German positions. The battle is noted for the death of the poet Wilfred Owen who was an officer in the Manchesters.
This release comprises four figures; 2 x British, 2 x Germans plus an MG08 machine gun.
Sculpted by Nino Pizzichemi the figures and gun are available as a complete set (TW32S08) for £80.00 GBP here or individually as listed below;
- TW32CP25 – Private, Infanterie Regiment No 24 (1) (standing) available here
- TW32CP26 – Private, Infanterie Regiment No 24 (2) (kneeling) available here
- TW32BE55 – Private, 2nd Bn Manchester Regiment (1) (pointing rifle) available here
- TW32BE56 – Private, 2nd Bn Manchester Regiment (2) (at ease) available here
- TW32EQ01 – MG08 machine gun available here
The four figures can be found available to purchase at www.tommyswar.com
These figures signify the end of the chronological pattern of releases that I’ve followed in the eleven years that Tommy’s War has been running. In that time I’ve released figures starting at the very outbreak of the war for the British forces to the end of the war on the Western Front.
I’ll now be going back and focussing on areas of interest through the period, beginning with the next releases which will be the French army of 1914.
Tommy’s War marches on!
