Lots of pictures for a trip down memory lane!

Thanks for showing these off. I had some WW1 germans and Russians for a small Russian Civil War project years ago. Nice to see them again.

Alan that is great.
Good to see a quantity of Peter's figures. Very nice.

I wonder if Peter is still around and gaming? Any one know.

Also Alan would you be willing to contribute some of your pictures etc to the next edition of the 15MILL?


Grateful if you could.

Hi all

Thank you for taking the time to post. Glad you liked the pictures.

Martin please feel free to use any of the pictures for your magazine. I took these pictures 7 years ago with my old camera so they are no the best.

What a trip. My first 'adult' figure game (1981) was with Peter's figures- Norman vs. Saxons at Hastings, WRG rules.

Played Necromunda with my 21 year old son, his best friend and my best friend the other day. Had a really fun time. We commented that this is the golden era of gamming, paints, washes, brushes, figures etc. I actually think every time we play and have fun it's a "golden era".

Sorry. Meant to add- Great pictures, great memories. I still use Peter Laing Huns in my games. I think that's all I have left of them.

Wonderful stuff. I'm partial to older figures…probably because I've got an older figure! grin old fart

I have a ton of them stashed away, Crimeans.

Great display of old-school gaming. Thanks a lot. Most people don't know that Peter Laing invented the 15 mm scale, 1975.
