The official website of the “St. George Cross” studio is now online. Our studio was officially registered in 1993 and since then we have been manufacturing pewter military-historic figurines and classic Toy Soldiers. We have been producing and painting historical miniatures for over 25 years.

Today we present you our standard products and figurines from our new collections. For almost 15 years we had been dealing with Lead Army (NY), Michigan Toy Soldier Company, "Der Bunte Rock", «Greek Heroes» and a number of other companies in the U.S. and Europe. After Lead Army (NY) went out, we have been successfully cooperating with Crown Military Miniatures. Our main European partner is located in Greece.
The exterior and the entire concept of figurine manufacturing changed in accordance with our customers` wishes. Static poses were replaced by more dynamic ones. The approach to historic accuracy and figurine anatomy got deeper and more thorough. The components got more complicated and of better quality. In 2005, we stopped designing and manufacturing classic tin figurines (Toy Soldiers) and concentrated our efforts on creating models for military historical miniature connoisseurs.
We have worked with many famous Russian military-historic miniature artists and sculptors like A. Bleskin, A. Karaschuck, K. Kanaev (Yellow One), Y. Pyatkov etc.

 

This website’s purpose is to give you a better understanding of our products and to help you buy kits, connoisseur miniatures, or souvenir painted figurines. You can get reviews on our products from Mr. Xavier Hunter, Marco Fantozzi and Florian Böhm.

Creating an original connoisseurs figure takes a lot of time and effort. No doubt, HQ painted figurines are the pride of our studio.

Painting is a stage turning a quality cast into a piece of art. Of course, we are talking about a high quality version, when facial features, shadows, folds and other details are thoroughly painted. Souvenir painting involves only basic colors applied, and the price of the figurines is several times less.

  • Our artists of connoisseurs figurines work in a realistic contrasting manner, without excessive embellishment, but with all the elements carefully painted.
  • No component of historical miniatures contradicts the historical information about the corresponding era. However, we do not aim to achieve absolute naturalism. Still, these models should not represent the horrors of war, but please their owner.
  • Painting miniatures for connoisseurs is performed at the same high level as possible: presentation samples are no different from miniatures for sale.
  • Our models feature dynamic poses, correct anatomy, carefully designed details and, of course, historical authenticity, but without academic pedantry (after all, these are rather artistic images, than scientific aids).
  • With high quality of our figurines, their price is affordable even for budding collectors. You can buy historical miniatures in high quality almost as cheaply as soldiers of King & Country, Frontline Miniatures or First Legion. Especially if you buy not in one of the off-line shop, but directly on our site
