Telford and Tommy’s War

Is it just me, or is this year flying around far too fast? I write that as I stare in disbelief at my calendar which shows just over a week (as I write this) until Scale Model World 2019 in Telford. Telford is a great show, for me made all the better as it’s only […]

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 […]

Eindhoven baby! Yeah!

After a fantastic time in Veldhoven last year, I’m delighted to be returning to Scale Model Challenge 2018. The show is once again expected to be busy, so I’ve made a few provisions to help ease the flow; Pre-orders If you’re coming to the show and know what you’re going to be buying then email […]

The Light Horse are charging into action…..

The clear leader in terms of sales and positive response through September has been TW32C03 the Trooper of the Australian Horse. I initially took 100 copies thinking this would be sufficient for 6 months. How wrong was I? Those 100 sold in less than 3 weeks, leaving me with no stock and lots of emails […]

Back to bases and ladders without snakes

It’s been an extremely busy four weeks for me since the launch of the new figures. I’d like to thank everyone for their support and encouragement and it was fantastic to see you many of you at Euro Miniature Expo. I hope to see you there next May (yes, the date has changed for 2019 […]

New box art by Danilo Cartacci

One of the best things about Tommy’s War is being able to work with some amazingly talented painters. I’ll admit, I’m a massive fan of Danilo Cartacci, so I was delighted when he agreed to paint one of the new German releases for me. Danilo selected figure TW32CP07, a Grenadier of the 11th Assault Bn […]

New British figure added to the range

Amidst all the fantastic new release information it would be easy to miss this new edition to the British range. I’ve often been asked for a kneeling British firing pose, its popular with figure modellers for its versatility in dioramas and also as a single figure. With the code TW32044 I’ve given the figure the […]

Important – Tommy’s War despatch dates September 2018

With a large number of releases this September I’m expecting higher than usual demand for product, so though it would be good to put into place a schedule so that customers order with full-facts. Over the last few months we’ve cast several thousand figures. Approximately 1,000 new casts are with me with 1,000 further figure […]

With the new releases coming very soon I thought I’d anticipate some of the questions I regularly get asked and condense them into one handy little blog for your reference! Can I pre-order and pick-up products at a model show? Easy one to answer! Yes of course. With Euro Miniature Expo (Folkestone) on the 22-23 […]

Chaaarge – The Australian Light Horse at Beersheba

As soon as I’d released TW32C02 the Trooper of the Warwickshire Yeomanry in 2016 I was immediately asked if a mounted figure of the Light Horse would be included in the range, so I’m delighted to be able to oblige! Sculpted by Nino Pizzichemi this is another outstanding figure in the cavalry range (although the […]
