Welcome to E.W. Baylis & Sons
EW Baylis & Sons manufacture the finest quality metal toy soldiers. The figures are designed, cast and painted in Britain. The figures are based on the model railway “O” scale and the old B scale of toy soldiers. The figures are 42mm or 1 ⅔ inches tall.
Our toy soldiers have been manufactured to be handled and played with. Each figure is cast as single piece (no arms to come unglued) and designs are modified to reduce the chance of items such as pikes and swords breaking off. The figures are far from indestructible and they will wear gently over time adding to their charm. Although toys, we recommend that the figures are not suitable for persons under 14 years of age.
The figures have been based on much historical research. E W Baylis have a team of skilled painters and each figure is uniquely painted. Because each figure is unique, small variations are to be expected and enjoyed. They are painted in a manner sympathetic to their toy heritage using flat colours and a restricted pallet. The figures have a gloss finish and green painted solid metal bases. These are not “connoisseur” figures, they are toy soldiers to be enjoyed as a gift, to collect or to be used in dioramas.
