Lots of paint conversion possibilities.

I like the way that familiar figures randomly reappear in different sizes in pound store bags.

I have these three different scale versions of the original Matchbox WW2 US Infantry Radio Man and probably the original Matchbox 1:72/76 and 54mm ones from childhood somewhere!

Hello I'm Mark Mr MIN, Man of TIN. Based in S.W. Britain, I'm a lifelong collector of "tiny men" and old toy soldiers, whether tin, lead or childhood vintage 1960s and 1970s plastic figures. I randomly collect all scales and periods and "imagi-nations" as well as lead civilians, farm and zoo animals. I enjoy the paint possibilities of cheap poundstore plastic figures as much as the patina of vintage metal figures. Befuddled by the maths of complex boardgames and wargames, I prefer the small scale skirmish simplicity of very early Donald Featherstone rules. To relax, I usually play solo games, often using hex boards. Gaming takes second place to making or convert my own gaming figures from polymer clay (Fimo), home-cast metal figures of many scales or plastic paint conversions. I also collect and game with vintage Peter Laing 15mm metal figures, wishing like many others that I had bought more in the 1980s ...

      Many many Thanks for the links to your site I’ve enjoyed a happy trawl through your dollar / pound store conversion blogposts, trying to work out which the original figures are.
      I happily spotted lots of the Airfix original figures hiding amongst the conversions – some very novel ideas – but the Lucky Toys revolutionary war figures I’m not so familiar with. Luckily I have some stashed to look forward to at Christmas and like their cartoon style.
