Description

Tommy’s War is a range of British and Empire figures modeled on the British and Empire armed forces of the First World War,

The Lancashire Fusiliers are famed for their action at Gallipoli when the 1st Battalion landed at Cape Helles and and won 6 Victoria Crosses. This action became known as ‘six VCs before breakfast’.

I wanted to show the Wolseley helmet, and decided to depict one of the territorial battalions that had embarked for the Dardanelles from Egypt and landed at Helles a few days after the 1st Bn.
Inspired by the book ‘Hell Let Loose’ by Neil Drum and Roger Dowson, the figure depicts a Private soldier of the 1/7th (Salford) Battalion of the Lanc’s, wearing Wolseley helmet and 1914 pattern equipment. Armed with a Long Lee Enfield rifle the figure depicts the Battalion when they landed. The Battalion went on to serve with distinction in Gallipoli.
The figure has been sculpted by Nino Pizzichemi and the box artwork is by Gunther Sternberg.Please note the following:

  • The figure is advertised at 54mm in height, which is 1/32 scale . However, the figures measure approximately 56-58mm foot to eye, so although marked as 54mm they may not be compatible with other figure or vehicle ranges. If you have any questions regarding scale then please don’t hesitate to email darren@tommyswar.com.
  • The figure is cast in polyurethane resin  and is supplied unpainted, the kit requires cleaning and assembly and is not suitable for children under the age of 12. Please always take care when working with resin. Work in a well ventilated room or wear a face mask as protection from resin dust.
  • The scenic base shown on the box art is NOT included with the figure.
