1999 Painted Set Additions - French Foreign Legion


We are pleased to announce that as of 15th November 2019 Imperial Miniatures are the new owners of Dorset Model Soldiers

Closed Until September 2020

Due to (an inevitable) rush of orders in the last week, I have decided to close a week early to new orders so I can process the current ones before August.

I have decided to close the Imperial Miniatures and Dorset Model Soldiers websites to new orders for August 2020. This is to give me chance to catch up on some things and to finally get Dorset properly sorted which has proved impossible while continuing to process orders.

I am planning to:

- Sort all Dorset stock into new storage

- Finish recreating missing documentation which will let me file away stock efficiently

- Re-sort the painted samples which are in a random order

- Hopefully work out some of the missing moulds and codes that I haven’t been able to cast

- Work on a new website for Dorset and Imperial

And hopefully get away for a week or so on holiday!

The plan is to reopen in September with a new website.

If you place orders (especially for painted items) towards the end of July they are likely to be completed during September.

While I will endeavour to complete orders placed between now and August 1st some will be delayed until I reopen.

Please note that the Medieval Range S has been temporarily withdrawn while I resolve problems with the documentation and moulds to ensure that I can cast all the items.

Please note that you should allow up to 3 weeks for casting orders and 6 weeks for painted orders. Most are processed faster than that but some will take longer due to holidays and medical emergencies...

Orders can continue to be placed through the Dorset Models website or by email, by phone or post (please note that cheques should be payable to Imperial Miniatures) and I am now processing orders on a regular basis. I am still finding my way around the range so may take some time to answer some questions.

I have upload the very latest version of the casting list (November 2019) as the one previously on the website was several years out of date.

Please note the new address and phone number:
Dorset Model Soldiers, Nyetimber, Norfolk Farm Road, Woking, Surrey GU22 8LF, England
Tel: 01483 855757 (Cheques payable to Imperial Miniatures).

PLEASE NOTE: Our paypal address is payments@dorsetmodelsoldiers.com

Dorset will continue to be run as a separate website and business from Imperial.

For those people on Facebook we have a new Facebook page: Dorset Facebook Page

Imperial Miniatures


The Dorset Model Soldier Company (Dorset Soldiers) have been producing toy style 54mm lead soldiers for collections since 1976. We offer everything from a spare part to repair a wounded 'old soldier', through castings for you to complete to your own individual taste, both boxed and unboxed to suit your needs.

The company was sold by Giles Brown in 2016 to Peter James/Andy Gibbs.

Mike Lewis of Imperial Miniatures acquired the company in December 2019
