KING & COUNTRY was founded in 1983 in Hong Kong by two expatriate Scots, Andy C. Neilson and Laura McAllister Johnson.

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 for the company.

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 figurines, the company has also produced an amazing and expanding range of scale model buildings, fighting vehicles, ships and aircraft, from a wide selection of wood, metal, polystone, resins and other mixed media.

As well as producing their own ranges they also design and manufacture special “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 fairs and collector shows in Europe, the U.S. and Australia.

Among their best-selling ranges are “Streets of Old Hong Kong” — a colourful and dynamic series of Chinese figurines and buildings depicting street life in-turn-of-the century Colonial Hong Kong.

Their various “World War Two” series encompass figurines, fighting vehicles and buildings that stretch from the shores of D. Day Normandy to the sands of North Africa and all points in between! A recent addition is “Operation Barbarossa” the German Invasion of Russia in June 1941.

Other exciting and colourful series cover such diverse topics as “The Age of Napoleon” and “The Crusades“. They even produce the Imperial Army of the Emperor of China.
