Tommy’s War is a range of British and Empire figures modelled on the First World War, an area of real interest to myself, and I believe many others.
Figure 5 in the series is a Private of the 1st Battalion The Gordon Highlanders posed at Le Cateau in 1914. Le Cateau followed the start of the retreat from Mons where the British II Corps performed a ‘stopping action’. The Gordon’s, heavily involved from day one of fighting, were involved once again and were virtually wiped-out as a fighting force.
The figure has been sculpted by Nino Pizzichemi and the box artwork is by Gunther Sternberg.
The figure is 54mm in height (1/32 scale) and is supplied unpainted, the kit requires assembly and is not suitable for children under the age of 12. The groundwork was provided by the artist and is not included
All figures in the Tommy’s War range now include a photo etch rifle sling (where the figure includes a rifle) and all orders receive a four page newsletter which gives information about the figures and period.
