The Little Soldier Company: Tenoch Review

Powered by the drive and enthusiasm of company founder David Wood, The Little Soldier Company are a UK model manufacturer who specialise in 28mm metal fantasy miniatures with an ‘old school’ aesthetic. Boasting the sculpting talents of the likes of Kevin Adams, Bob Olley, John Robertson, Philip Page, Mark Evans, Martin Buck, and John Pickford, the models of The Little Soldier Company are all full of originality and character.

Sculpted by one of this magazine’s favourite sculptors, the legendary Kevin Adams, and coinciding with this month’s Army Focus on the Followers of the Eye, this month we review The Little Soldier Company’s range of superb Tenoch models. With their reptilian features and gaping mouths, Tenoch models are extremely well-suited to being fielded within armies of the Followers of the Eye.

With all of these models offering a number of conversion options, there are also many Tenoch miniatures which players of the Followers of the Eye will be able to use ‘as is’, some examples of this are listed below.
