RIP Tony Adams the late Commander Of the Woodscrew Miniature Army
Our thoughts are with his wife and family at this sad time.
Sadly here is a post all about my chats and exchanges with Tony, crossposted from my Man Of TIN Blog Two
I have built my first Sarissa MDF buildings from the Warlord Games Epic Battles Pike and Shotte Starter Set Push Of Pike
and I also remember their Peter Laing / John Mitchell equivalents from 40 to 50 years before.

Over the last few weeks I have been kitbashing 28mm WW2 figures from freebie magazine sprues into ImagiNations troops (thanks to Alan, David and others)
Marine Light Infantry
I have also been comparing them with suitable 28mm to 32 mm figures in my collection, along with some spare 30mm figures from the Mark’s Little Soldiers neo-retro Range (thanks Alan!)
Basically this is a round up or crosspost of links to this week’s posts from my Man of TIN Blog Two,
Italian WW2 Infantry changed into Scandi mountain troops
And to add to these fine fellows (above), I have kitbashed six more Marine Raiders in pith helmets
Along with some spare Officer figures from the new
Mark’s Little Soldiers 30mm Range:
Amazing how varied 28mm Is in terms of size and stature, the same can be said of 30mm to 32mm including Pound Store Plastic Warriors for a cheap bulked out army.

Peter Laing 15mm ECW metal figures compared to the new Warlord Games Epic Battles Pike and Shotte 13-15mm plastic figures.
See and read more on my blog here, crossposted 6 / 7 May 2023:
Recently I have posted and focussed on outer space a bit more through the unlikely figure of the ‘father of modern wargaming’ Donald Featherstone and the wargaming grandfather and science fiction writer H.G. Wells
including Asimov’s preface to Little Wars
And featured these delightful SciFi Dorset castings through Imperial (!) Miniatures
Reposting the 2022 post and previous year list
Happy International Star Wars Day, also to be celebrated on 25 May as well …

Thanks David and Alan for the freebie sprues.
In which I kitbash several different free 28mm sprues together to create my own small skirmish patrol group of
Tintinesque ImagiNations Alpine Troops. Think WW1 era Italian Alpini merged with Austrian Gebirgsjäger.
