KING & COUNTRY was founded in 1984 in Hong Kong by two expatriate Scots, Andy C. Neilson and Laura McAllister. Andy, a former Royal Marine Commando had been interested in and collecting toy soldiers since a young boy. Laura provided the solid business background and support. From humble beginnings, KING & COUNTRY has developed into one of the world’s major designers and producers of all-metal, hand-painted 1:30 scale military and civilian miniatures.
In addition to their metal miniatures figures, the company has also developed an amazing and expanding range of scale model buildings, fighting vehicles and tanks, ships and aircraft, all made of polyresin. As well as producing their own ranges they also design and manufacture “corporate gifts” for companies in the publishing, airline and premium business. From their headquarters in Hong Kong, they oversee every stage of design, development and production in mainland China. They also take part in trade and collector shows in Europe and the U.S.
Their various “World War Two” series encompass figures, fighting vehicles and buildings that stretch from the shores of D Day Normandy to the sands of Iwo Jima and all points in between! Two recent additions are the German Afrika Korps and the British Eighth Army. Other exciting and colourful series cover such diverse topics as “The Age of Napoleon” and “The American Revolutionary War”. They even produce the Roman Army of Julius Caesar.
