Tiny Terrain Models is run by husband and wife team Craig & Su Thomson, from their home in Gloucestershire, England.
I (Craig) have been playing with toys for some 35 years, and came up with the idea of starting a wargames miniature company in early 2016 after wanting “a decent looking Medic and casualty” for my modern 28mm games. I quickly found that many other gamers also loved the model (Pack MED01) and wanted to buy the miniatures I had commissioned.
We now supply 38 different metal miniatures, and some mdf accessories, all of which are for gamers playing 28mm modern-day (last 20 years or so) skirmish games such as Skirmish Sangin, Spectre, Force on Force, Ambush Alley, Black ops Etc. We are completely rules agnostic, and you can use our miniatures for any rules you prefer.
We will continue to release more packs this year, and in 2017 we are releasing 2 new ranges, namely “El Narcos” (now released) and “The Chechen Wars” which is running on Kickstarter from October 1st. More details can be found on the menu of the home page.
Since starting TTM 12 months ago I have had 3 simple rules:
- Get “stuff” made that we like & want as gamers
- Sell “stuff” at a price that allows most gamers to put their hand in their wallet for a few £/$ and buy them, just because they think the minis are cool or want to support what we are doing.
- Remember this is not big business its just toy soldiers……this is meant to be fun and a hobby for us!
Craig (me) – I work full-time running a Sales Team across Northern & Central Europe for an Electronics Company and in my spare time bugger around with toy soldiers. I have also written, painted and provided terrain for and been a playtester of a number of wargames rulebooks over the last few years. I play dark ages, medieval, Napoleonics, WW2 and modern games in a variety of scales , and regularly run demonstration games of Skirmish Sangin in the UK.
Su, is queen of all things marketing (both in her day job and for TTM) but is also responsible for making sure Craig’s “Oooh Shiny” gene is kept under control. Without her TTM would just spiral out of control and in true wargames butterfly style, I would have new sculpts every week for 20 different periods and scales! Su is not a gamer although has on more than one occasion thrashed Craig at his own 100 Years Wars rules.
Our Chief Sculptor, Phil Lewis, has a long history in the world of wargaming, having worked for in the Games Workshop studios in their very early days in a variety of creative roles. He is now semi-retired but still sculpts for a number of leading figure companies in a variety of scales and styles. We are VERY lucky to have him work for us on a regular basis.
We have also worked with a number of other very talented sculptors and model makers over the years and are always keen to promote new sculpting talent into the market (ie get in touch if you can push green stuff around)
