    I’m pleased to announce the latest figures in the Tommy’s War range. This release looks at the impact of the United States joining the war effort with their huge industrial might and one of the first major battles that they took part, at Belleau Wood in June 1918.

    The release will consist of two parts (or ‘waves’ as I’m calling them).
    Belleau Wood – Wave One, in-stock and available NOW
    • TW32AL02 – First Lieutenant, 2/5 US Marine Corps, Belleau Wood 1918 – available to purchase <here>

    I think it helps to see how the four figures interact in pairs;

    And then how they come together to create a scene;

    Of course, you can see all the individual images for each figure by going to their pages on the store on this website. If you want to see more images information then also search for Tommy’s War on social media.
    I look bringing you more great figures soon!

    Thank you for the kind comments, they are always very much appreciated!

    With regards to producing figures in larger scales. I do get asked this occasionally. The situation with Tommy's War is that it's a business I run in my free time outside of work. I have a busy career, a family and other interests so Tommy's War is what it is. I like working with my sculptor, Nino, and I like 1/32 scale, and we've no plans for anything other than continuing in that scale.
    Sgt. Red, Martin64 and Richard Baxter like this.

    Nice additions to the line especially the marines. I stand to be corrected, but the marines had a crown and anchor badge attached to their helmets did they not?

    The bloody carnage lasted from 1 to 26 June 1918.

    Nothing is known about the amount of German casualties, as an unknown number of German detachments of four previously battered divisions (10th, 28th, 197th, 87th, and 237th) were entrenched in the wooded area near Chateau Thiery measuring only 2.6 square kilometers.

    1,600 Germans were captured.

    The Marines lost 9,777 soldiers, of which 1,811 dead. This was the highest loss of soldiers in a battle during their participation in the First World War for the Americans.

    The Hollywood-film "The lost battallion" shows the fight between the Doughboys and the Sturmtruppen.

    The fight between a Marine Officer and a German Officer in Belleau Woods. This is just one of many, many life size vignettes at the National Museum of the Marine Corps. I believe this vignette was inspired by Capt John Thomason's sketch in his book Fix Bayonets. I've often thought this would make a great miniature vignette as would the sketch titled "A Swirl of Senegalese" Thomason states " with reason the Boche feared them worse than anything living." Love the caption about the "Iron souled Prussians". IMG_0001 (2).jpg IMG_0002 (2).jpg IMG_0003 (2).jpg IMG_0003 (2).jpg Quantico 036.jpg
