Victrix Limited is focussed on providing the highest quality 28mm plastic miniatures for wargamers and collectors alike. The company was created in 2007 by Julian Blakeney-Edwards who now runs it alongside his sons.
Julian was fascinated by toy soldiers from a young age. This passion extended into the real world and at the age of 22 he entered Sandhurst, subsequently commissioned into 3 Royal Anglian (Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Essex) Regiment. A fascinating 6 year career with the regiment took him to Germany, Canada and Northern Ireland.
Although Victrix started out by focussing on the Napoleonic period, we have quickly expanded our range to include warriors of antiquity, the dark ages and WWII.
We pride ourselves on quality and therefore we put great emphasis on producing figures with real character, truly reflecting the look and feel of the given period. A great deal of attention has been placed on the sculpting of faces, the look of the uniform and the pose of each figure.
We want our figures to look like soldiers and to scare the living daylights out of their metal opponents. We want to appeal to military modellers who will appreciate the detail of our figures and want to use them as performers in their dioramas and vignettes. More than anything we want to recreate the pleasure and excitement of collecting miniature figures and perhaps convince the younger generation there is more to this pastime than Elves and Dwarves.
