Footsore Miniatures & Games Limited
Footsore Miniatures was established to provide high-quality 28mm metal miniatures for gamers and collectors alike. Its foundation is built on the old Musketeer Miniatures range of figures sculpted by the designer, Bill Thornhill.
With the addition of other sculptors such as Matthew Bickley, Paul Hicks, John Robertson and Stavros Zouliatis it now offers high-quality 28mm metal and tabletop games such as Gangs of Rome, Mortal Gods & The Barons' War.
Based in Nottingham, UK was taken on by Mark Farr and Andy Hobday, friends for over 20 years who collectively bring more than five decades of gaming experience. Since 2019, Footsore Miniatures & Games has been managed and run by Mark and his team shipping all over the world. Since taking over, both tabletop games and resin 28mm miniatures have been added to the catalogue.
Footsore (Miniatures) is named after the plight of the millions of men (and women), who have humped their paraphernalia of war along the long dusty roads of history.

In the early 80s, Games Workshop released Warhammer first edition and an incurable addiction was born.
Mark moved from the’ Marches’ up to Nottingham to work for Games Workshop in Sales and worked his way through several areas of the business learning mould making and casting along the way.
