The Metal Toy Soldiers of Wm. Hocker, Proprietor


Note: The workshop is back in operation and we can now take orders for things not in stock. (Although with Covid cases again rising it may prove be a brief interlude.)

New! Whilst most of our in-stock goods find happy billets quickly, some sets languish on the shelves. To encourage their dispatch, pricing is now graduated, after the fashion of Dutch auctions, to reflect their keenness for deployment.
Reserve sets by email (bill@wmhocker.org) indicating the desired set numbers. I will return an email confirmation that the set is still available and has been reserved.
Reservations are held one week.
After confirmation please refer to Ordering for payment instructions.
