1. Artizan Designs

Mike Owen's own range of 28mm WWII British and Commonwealth Forces figures is one of the very finest and includes British 8th Army (infantry and support), Commandos for the North African and Mediterranean theatre, S.A.S. saboteurs and Long Range Desert Group figures, Commandos for North West Europe (Normandy, etc...),British Airborne and Commonwealth Forces (Australian and Sikh infantry). These figures share the same weapons with the Crusader Miniatures range, so equipment is fully compatible.

- 8th Army:

- Commandos for the North African and Mediterranean theatre:

- S.A.S. & L.R.D.G.:

- Western Front commandos:

- British Airborne:

2. Crusader Miniatures

Mark Simms range of 28mm WWII figures. These are generally a bit beefier than the Artizan Designs figures, but use the same equipment bits for maximum compatibility. The bigger artillery guns are sculpted by Jason McDermott. The range includes Early and Late British infantry and support.

- British infantry and support:

- Late British infantry and support:

3. Bolt Action Miniatures

One of the latest new comers to the period and already sporting an impressive range, with monthly new releases. 28mm figures sculpted by Paul Hicks, lately with help by Adam Dechande. Vehicles by Simon Bargery, Olaf Meys and Nigel Higgins. The British/Canadian range covers the late war period, with British/Canadian infantry and support, British commandos (including kayaks), snipers and spotters, vehicle crews and vehicles.

- Late War British/Canadian infantry and support:

- Commandos & snipers:

-Vehicle crews:

- BAM 1/56th scale resin vehicles (Bren carrier & Daimler Dingo MkII scoutcar):

4. Foundry

The Foundry has a small, but interesting range of 28mm WWII Brits, including paratroopers, commandos and home guard (including bicycles). The Home Guard heroes are obviously inspired by a well known British TV-show. I believe the figures were sculpted by Michael Perry. They are slightly smaller than most of the other ranges listed here, but not by much. There's also a smaller, more recent "Burma" range.

- Home Guard:

- Paratroopers:

- Commandos:

- Burma:

5. The Assault Group

Another UK-based manufacturer of fine 28mm historical figures. The WWII British range concentrates on the Pacific theatre and includes British Chindits and support weapons,including a donkey caravan. The figures ooze caracter and are very well sculpted by the talented Richard Ansell.
