Forward March

   In 1980 Prescott’s Military Miniatures was founded by the Walker family. Using modern rubber molds made in Germany and Ireland, thousands of raw castings were made and sold at craft shows around the Detroit area. Customers loved the fact that they could watch “their” soldier being poured right in front of them – with the molten metal running into the mold and sixty seconds later out popped a fully formed toy soldier! As the business grew painted figures began to be offered and sold for considerably more than the raw castings. Colonel William Prescott, an ancestor, was the one who said “Don’t fire ‘til you see the whites of their eyes” at Bunker Hill. All Prescott’s painted figures had the whites of the eyes painted in.
  After twenty years in business, Prescott’s Military Miniatures launched Forward March in 2000 with the goal of producing high quality, connoisseur class figures sculpted by some of the finest sculptors in the hobby with the master figures painted by owner, Richard Walker. In keeping with the Prescott’s commitment to quality every figure was thoroughly researched so the sculpting and painting was as historically accurate as possible.  And true to their roots, you can still see the whites of their eyes in every figure.
  The figures are spin-cast metal, 1:32 scale (54mm) and painted with just enough shading and highlighting to give them a military miniature feel, while still retaining their toy soldier roots.
