Peter Laing 15mm figure enthusiast Alec Green sent me photos of one of the starter or collector sets of painted wargames figures  sold by John Mitchell using Peter Laing’s 15mm figures.

I asked in these previous John Mitchell / Peter Laing related blogposts if any reader had bought one of these painted sets. Alec Green bought these delightful Indians from an online auction site.

These well painted Peter Laing figures shown in the box appear to be:

F3007 Indian with bow firing.

A3007 Buffalo.

M3007 Mounted Indian with bow, charging.

M3008 Mounted Indian with rifle, charging.

M3009 Mounted Indian with spear, charging.

The hand drawn box lid is similar in style to the ECW starter rules and advert by John Mitchell posted previously – see blog links above.

You can see the same hand-drawn style in this 1980s advert.

  1. They really are lovely. I remember seeing the adverts back in the day. To have the figures available again would be magical. In the meanwhile your blog and the Wargames Hermit will suffice ! Thanks for sharing the photo.
