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 ...

Great conversions and didn’t know you could get “scout” miniatures. Love the concept and the book “Wide Games” was an excellent pickup. I have ordered a first edition through Abe books.
Wide Games is an interesting book of scenarios and an interesting read. I am still trying to work out how to bring some of them to life on the tabletop.
There is a page on figures here – https://tabletopscoutingwidegames.wordpress.com/figure-sources-for-scouting-wide-games-snowball-fights-skateboarders-and-others/
