World War I model soldiers from Tommys War

img_5637

Tommys War is an, as yet small, range of model figures dedicated to World War I subjects.

What’s striking is the humanity of the poses, their level of detail and the linking of model figures to particular moments of World War I.

The range currently numbers 14 figures including an experienced-looking private of the 4th Battalion, Middlesex Regiment at Mons in August 1914; a sergeant of the 2nd Battalion Suffolk Regiment attempting to escape from his regiment’s encirclement at Le Cateau; and an elephant-gun carrying captain of the Royal Welch Fusiliers at Ploegsteert Wood in winter 1915.

The figures measure 54mm in height and are sculpted by Nino Pizzichemi.
