One advantage of this hobby is how one thing can lead to another and so on. My Lone Warrior subscription email had a reference to the SOTCW which seemed interesting, so I joined. From that I found Simon's Soldiers, who produce a mix of 20mm WW2 figures which were previously under another name I believe, and a few 3D vehicles.

The advantage for me is that they in the same country as me; and I liked the look of the figures. So I ordered a couple of packs, got a free one thrown in (a very useful free one I might add) and got them in 2 days. Nice poses, 20mm sole to eye and reasonably proportioned and nicely posed. I have a right mix of manufacturers in my Germans so I am not fussy, but these guys fit nicely.

Those are nice.
And for those of us with the attention span of a gnat, this is a cool hobby.

Known Simon for years, great guy and great range.

Very nice looking troops.

I wasn't aware of them before.

Thanks for sharing the link.

I have ordered from Simon several times and the product and the service were always first rate!

I am looking forward to the Normandy US paratroopers and the early war Germans he has planned!!

Where is the seller located?

Sadly, I don't see a listing in the Manufacturers listing here for Simon's on TMP.

Hey mate,

in Australia but I believe they have a UK agent?

Thresher0113 Mar 2022 3:32 a.m. PST

Thank you.

Given Victoria was mentioned, I figured it was either Australia, or Canada.

I have ordered multiple times from Simon. He is a gentleman, his products are wonderful, and his service has been exemplary. If he has something that gets your attention, you will be impressed when you actually make your purchase. I am in the U.S. and have had all orders delivered to my door in about two weeks.

Shipping from Australia to the US was shut down for a few weeks so Simon held on to my order and shipped it out as soon as the postal service started shipping again.

Simon was a pleasure to deal with and gave me several options when we realized there would be an issue with shipping.

The models are excellent.
