Welcome to the home page of the British Model Soldier Society (BMSS), the largest and longest established association of model soldier enthusiasts. The BMSS includes enthusiasts for all types of model soldiers of any scale or period and welcomes members from all parts of the UK and overseas.
The BMSS Bristol Branch held their annual show at Nailsea school on 26th November 2023. A full report of the show will be in the first issue of The Bulletin for 2024. Pictures of the models in the competition can be found on the Blog page.
In the first Issue of Bulletin for this year, 2024, Hans Christian Wolter wrote an article about Heavy Artillery Batteries of the Indian/British Army in 1895. Unfortunately there was not enough space in The Bulletin to include all the pictures. Here is a link to all the pictures of this excellent group of models.
