Updating an old blog post as I've picked up a bunch of variant sculpts...
Back in the late 70s and early 80s, Bob sculpted a number of (now long out of production) fantasy pieces for various companies. I am led to believe he first sculpted for Wargames Publications (Scotland) Ltd. He sculpted a large amount of historical, both in 15mm and 25mm under 'Naismith Design' label which were distributed by Navwar Productions Limited. The 15mm are mostly still available however the 25mm are long gone and Navwar have never been able to supply any information regarding the masters etc. I would assume they are gathering dust in one of Bob's Highland hideaways... the man is a true Scot through and through. He has sculpted for many different companies over the years including being responsible for the first Games Workshop Space Marines (should I insert a 'TM' there?) - the old classic Womble helmeted ones. He left GW around 1990 to become freelance. He sculpted a large Sci Fi range 'Cobalt' that has recently been picked up by Black Hat Miniatures (since sold on). He is currently producing plastic for both Fireforge Games and Mantic Games along with his latest venture where he's turned to 3D computer modelling... https://www.bobnaismith.com/

I also recently picked up a Naismith Designs Roman Chariot... this is a seriously nice sculpt although a little fiddly as a kit.
