About Us Title

An avid history buff, Mr. Bennett completed a successful career as a senior executive with an International Food Service Organization.  Now retired, he spends his time between family, golf, entertaining his three grandchildren, collecting heraldic miniatures, and writing.  Since childhood he has been acutely interested in collecting miniatures particularly those of the toy soldier and military variety.  Over the past dozen years, however, his collecting has focused on the Medieval Period specializing in the heraldic knights of Brian Rodden, Peter Greenhill, Richard Courtenay, Freddie Ping, J.P. Thomas, and the Plantagenet Knights of John Braithwaite.

Mr. Bennett has written articles for several collector publications including Toy Soldier Collector and Toy Soldier and Model Figure magazines.

In addition to writing magazine articles, Mr. Bennett has also authored four books on the subject of Heraldic Miniatures and Military Sculptures.  His fourth book entitled Plantagenet Knights: A History and Collector Guide to the Heraldic Miniatures of John Braithwaite should be considered the definitive work of the subject. The Author’s passion for Heraldic Miniatures and Military Sculptures is reflected in his books, and his writing is intended to display the work of these craftsmen to a broader audience as well as provide a documented history for current and future collectors.
