Press release about the purchase of Dorset Model Soldier below – still feeling a mix of nerves and excitement about the purchase…
We are pleased to announce that as of 15th November 2019 Imperial Miniatures are the new owners of Dorset Model Soldiers, the well known supplier of Toy Soldier Spares and model soldiers based in Portland, Dorset.
We have bought the company from Andy Gibbs, who bought Dorset from the original owner Giles Brown in 2016.
Andy is currently completing any outstanding paid orders he has, and we are arranging to collect the moulds, masters, stock etc. from the Portland workshop around the end of November. New orders can continue to be placed through the Dorset Models website, by phone or post (please note that cheques should be payable to Imperial Miniatures).
We hope to have the business back up and running and processing orders shortly after the London Toy Soldier show on December 7th and provide the same level of service that Giles made Dorset renowned for.
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).
Dorset will continue to be run as a separate website and business from Imperial.
