Stock update

I’ve received an overwhelming amount of support since announcing I’m ending the Tommy’s War range at the end of 2023, and I’d like to thank everyone that’s spoken to me or commented.

Stock update 23.09.2022

Since the announcement that Tommy’s War will cease trading on 31st December 2023 I’ve had a lot of orders, with customers keen to snap-up products before they are out of production.

New World War One French model figures

I’m delighted to announce news of the two latest releases in the Tommy’s War range. Figures TW32AL07 and TW32AL08 depict a French Lieutenant and Private of the French infantry as they would have appeared in the early months of the year. This is exciting as it’s the first French releases in the Tommy’s War range […]

Where have your been? (a mid-year update)

I’ve had a few emails recently from customers wondering where I am and why there isn’t any news from Tommy’s War. Well, it’s been another busy year and I’m conscious that I’ve not been in touch as much as I normally would, and as it’s coming-up to the end of June I felt this was […]
