Bob Olley Fan(atic)


Introduction

Hi, I’m Tony and I hail from New Zealand. I have been a wargamer, modeller and collector of miniature figures for over 30 years.

This site is a tribute to the sculpting skills of Bob Olley, a hugely prolific sculptor of miniatures whose work I have admired for many years. I have admired Bob’s work ever since I found some of his early Imperial Guard figures for Citadel, dating back to the late 1980’s. While some people seem to think they are ugly, I loved the way in which he seemed to be able to embue his figures with character. Since then I have set out to collect as many of his figures as possible, especially those produced by Citadel.

I am trying to construct as comprehensive a catalogue as possible of Bob’s work for all the different miniature manufacturers and this site is an attempt to show as many as possible. In putting the site together, I have received a lot of help from many people. I particularly want to thank Bob Olley for his patience at all my questions, Joe Thomlinson for help with getting the site up and running and the members of the CollectingCitadelMiniatures group on Yahoo who have helped with info and photos. Any errors on the site are entirely mine - if you see an error, please let me know so I can correct it. If anyone has information about or pictures of Bob’s work which is not already shown on the site, please contact me at Tony Mansfield

Or if you are another fan, I’d love to hear from you.

A Short History


But enough from me, onto the miniatures ……… by selecting "Manufacturers" in the left hand frame, you will be taken to a listing of all the manufacturers for whom Bob has sculpted figures. Select the individual manaufacturer for a listing of Bob's figures for that company.

This is still a work in progress (as is my collection) so there are a lot of gaps. If you can help fill the gaps, please let me know.
