The idea behind Special Artizan Service Miniatures, and now Footsore Modern, was to create miniatures that I actually want to play with. Being a gamer since the age of four, I also wanted to give back to the gaming community, and I thought the best way to do that was to offer miniatures and accessories that would accommodate other modern miniatures ranges.
Why modern? Being a contractor in Iraq during parts of 2004 and 2005 as well as a tactical weapons instructor for law enforcement and contractors, I felt I could use this knowledge with weapons, vehicles, gear and other equipment bringing it to the gaming table.
I draw my inspiration from what occurs in the world today. I do my best to bring the latest gear and weapons to our miniatures so you can play the latest conflicts.
