Welcome to the world of Spencer Smith Miniatures. We have been around since the early 'sixties, initially cast in plastic, all our figures are now in metal (high lead content, please note, to keep prices low). Our figures feature in many of the early books and articles on wargaming, particularly by Donald Featherstone, Charles Grant and Stuart Asquith. We have greatly increased the old ranges , but keeping to a simplistic style as they appeared in the old plastic days. Our ranges cover the American Civil War, American War of Independence, the Seven Years War, the Wars of the Austrian Succession and the Zulu War. The 'connoisseur' figures in the AWI range were designed by Barry Minot.For those new to Spencer Smith figures, please bear in mind that our figures are stylistic, with little detail, but exactly proportioned and easy to paint. This is reflected in the low prices we charge.
We also stock the excellent range of 42mm Shiny Toy Soldiers, sculpted by Aly Morrison, famous for his work with Games Workshop and Great War Miniatures. These marvellous, multi-part figures are packed with nostalgia, and reminiscent of the figures used by H G Wells and others in the very early days of wargaming, when a Persian rug, piled books and childrens' wooden scenery would have been the norm for gaming scenery. En masse, they look wonderful; individually, they are elegant and full of movement and life. We are delighted to be able to offer them for sale here.
We also sell our new Classic range of 30mm figures covering the Franco Prussian War period, Normans and Anglo Saxons (1066) and Robin Hood.
NOTE: Figures contain lead and are supplied unpainted. They are NOT suitable for small children.
