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 ...

An excellent find and addition to your scenery. It will no doubt give good service to you and your games. It is fortunate that the roof comes off allowing it to be fully occupied. I look forward to seeing it in a game.

The roof was not designed to come off but with a little controlled gentle strategic forcing and a stout knife, it now does. With some superglue the roof is now back in one piece. Inside was very dusty.
I really like this!
It has its own naive tourist tat charm!
Really nice find. Will so so useful for multiple periods. Hope to see it I a battle report.
Versatile, everyday but also mysterious … it should be very useful.
Looks exactly like a model I saw in a tourist shop in Thailand. They had a couple versions of similar houses.
Thanks – I thought it was this sort of thing.
Very nice find- you never know what you can come across if you keep your eyes open I guess.
Upcycling or recycling, more vintage tat finds a new and exciting life!
