About Motley Miniatures

Thank you for your interest in Motley Miniatures, you may be wondering who we are, where we came from, and where we hope to be going, in which case please read on.

Motley Miniatures currently consists of just me (Mike Statham), which unfortunately means I must take responsibility for it all, although I don't think my Dad should get off scot free. It came about as a business due to my father's love of model trains. Having finally given in to his demands to have a go at sculpting a couple of miniature figures to stand in them we were both quite pleased with the results.

There was only one way to go after that really, and this website is hopefully a step in the direction of growing the business on to bigger and better things.


We are a tiny business, and I'm a very busy person, so that can often mean the phone doesn't get answered, or emails replied to immediately - please email me, rather than phone, it's easier to reply when I've got time than attempting to pick up the phone with hands covered in something sticky and come up with a coherent answer on the spot. Please be patient, I will get back to you and try to answer all enquiries.

I'm very interested in experimenting with new materials and making all manner of miniatures. Anyone who is interested in miniatures I'm not currently manufacturing please feel free to get in touch to discuss commissions, or ranges I really 'ought' to offer.

The Future

Currently a number of different figures have been requested for the 16mm Model Railway market. There is also an interest in miniatures for Gauge 1 model railways, which I'm keen to provide for, and I have been approached over making models connected with hobbies other than model railways. 

New miniatures will be appearing as time goes on and for as long as interest in the miniatures continues, please take a look at the categories listed on the website to see what is coming up next and please pop back from time to time to see what's new.
