    TW32S07 - Vickers Machine Gun, Passchendaele 1917

    Starting with the much-anticipated Vickers Machine Gun set, this is available as TW32S07 and although previewed as at Passchendaele in 1917, the set really does depict any British, Australian, New Zealand, Canadian or South African troop of the Western Front campaign between 1917 and 1918 (with the exception of Highland Troops).

    Sculpted by Nino Pizzichemi, this stunning set features two Machine Gun Corps soldiers firing their Vickers Machine Gun. The set also features a German casualty which is also available individually as TW32CP24. The context is that the British are defending a recently captured enemy trench from counter-attack.

    The base, sculpted by Andy Belsey, is designed so that we could embed the gun tripod and avoid casting issues with such a fine piece.

    The whole scene creates a small diorama packed with action and tension and Nino has sculpted the stress on the two machine gunners in wonderful detail.

    The kit includes;
    1. Two British Machine Gun Corps crew
    2. Vickers Machine Gun (including condensing can and ammunition box)
    3. German casualty
    4. Diorama base
    Available for £88.00 to purchase here

    TW32AL06 - Sergeant 167th US Infantry, St Mihiel 1918


    The second release is a delayed figure from April 2020. The figure is a US Army Sergeant with a Winchester shotgun. We'd completed sculpting and Ernesto Reyes had finished the box art when I was alerted that the figures left hand was in the wrong position.

    I hold my hands up to this one, I should have spotted it at the time, however some personal circumstances meant it slipped through the net. A year later he's back and Nino has re-sculpted that arm so his hand is on the lever for the shotgun.

    The original box art is by Ernesto Reyes and I'll be sending him a new figure with that updated arm so that we can create new artwork.

    Available to purchase here, priced £16.00

    Modelling World War One Trench Warfare by Andy Belsey

    I'm delighted to be able to supply this book from my good friend Andy, the book showcases Andy's amazing work on diorama bases.

    With 192 pages, this book has over 300 images of inspiration for modellers and is a well-designed and is a thought-provoking look at life in the trenches.

    Priced at £18.00 and available to order here.

    Back in stock!

    By a large margin, the most popular items in the Tommy's War range are the cavalry figures, they seem to sell-out within days of coming back into stock.

    We've done some work to get more copies of all of them into stock, plus some other figures that are amongst the most popular including the Clyno motorcycle, Gassed and The Action at Nery diorama.

    Visit www.tommyswar.com for more details.

    Future plans

    After a short break while Nino grabs his summer vacation (and I catch my breath) we'll be back in the Autumn with another new release. I'm currently working on a 2022 schedule and hopefully some of the model shows will be able to go ahead over the end of the year.

    Love the vignette, as always, I wish they were at least 75mm. 54mm is just too small for me these days. Well done!

    Look at Darrens blog on Tommy’s War and there are plenty of photos there. Alex has done a great job. Needless to say Nino sculpted them really well again.

    The Book has been published today, so hopefully you will get your copies soon. Please give it reviews if you like it, and please keep quiet if you don't! ;) I've tried to produce a good book and only got good feedback from those who have seen it so far, but they were talking to the author!

    The book was being displayed as a new publication early yesterday. Then it got moved back to forthcoming later in the day! It now says publication on 5th June, so more waiting! I guess the stock from India is being held up somewhere?? I don't get told.

    Neil, I don't have launching party plans yet. I was 'shielding' most of last year because of historic health issues. I've had both my vaccines but am in no hurry to mix with lots of people yet. I have been in a couple of shops, which is novel, and eaten with friends a family! Crowood and I are publicizing as much as possible and I may get interviewed about it? All early stage plans.
