Toy Soldiers

Toy soldiers are available from a variety of manufacturers and in varying degrees of authenticity. To fully capture a military battle scene, the detail needs to extend beyond the positions of the figures and on to their faces and expressions. This has been an exquisite accomplishment of several manufacturers, all of whom are highlighted on this site. Some even include a range of scale model buildings, fighting vehicles and tanks, ships and aircraft to complement the military figures.

Part of what makes these product lines so innovative is the historical value. Most manufacturers have lines covering specific times in history, Click on any of the categories below to learn more and see some examples of these works:
