  3. Tommy's War Active Member

    I'm going to be there with a mix of products from both www.fireflymodels.co.uk and www.fireflyfantsy.co.uk including all the Tommy's War range. Space will be limited as I've got lots of great figures and very little space on the table so if there is anything in particular you want let me know in advance and I'll bring it along!
