Many years ago (1996) we moved to the UK and became interested in toy soldiers and military miniatures. We found that there are many interesting regimental museums and collections of toy soldiers around the country. We were introduced to the classic brands of the time and started the first version of this website to chronicle our experiences.

But as the old saying goes, life sometimes gets in the way. Our day jobs were running EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) for an American high tech firm, involving lots of travel and many late nights. The website just wasn’t on that agenda.  But we never lost interest in the subject and have always wanted to revive the site.

Today we find ourselves in the website business, with a small but growing portfolio of sites. We think it’s time to get back to this most interesting subject, but there is a lot of work ahead. We’re putting the bare bones online first, and we will be adding more as we go along, so bear with us. And especially in this stage, if you see something you think needs to be changed or added, don’t hesitate to bring them to our attention.
