All aboard for ‘BattleShips’ to test submarine hunting skills. Trainees @RNASCuldrose 824 Squadron’s Merlin Training Facility are playing tactical games designed & made by the instructors. Wargames date back to WW2. The games featuring real @NATO scenarios are making a comeback. pic.twitter.com/12EvE3ERk7
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 ...

Really interesting to see this ,thanks for sharing it.
I knew the sight of those light blue hexes would excite some!
Great stuff- Osprey do a submarine game written by a submariner that is well worth a look.
Thanks Pete. I always enjoyed Battleships as a child and this Royal Navy ASW one looks like the luxury version!
