How did I miss this?
Have I been under a stone for the last couple of the years in the Wargames Garden?
The 15 Mill – A free online magazine from Peter Pig devoted to 15 millimetre figures and gaming.
I look forward to reading these as the autumn nights draw in!
Each edition (until Covid) has a free gamette scenario for small games.
Cleverly, you can buy a 15mm Peter Pig figure package suitable for each gamette.
A clever and fun way to promote your company and your scale!
Fifteen turns Fifty
The pendulum has swung some way from 15mm (and ‘Flames of War’) being the most popular scale some years ago to 28mm, which is apparently “where it’s at” for many gamers today.
15mm is fifty years old next year, if you count the appearance of Peter Laing figures in October \ November 1972.
Peter Laing is long retired. Sadly these figures are out of production and the moulds vanished but small lots sometimes appear for sale online.
Issue 4 of The 15 Mill in October 2019 appropriately featured a fine display of Peter Laing WW1 figures from the ABC gamers blog.
A good time to start sorting through my old original Peter Laing figures, painting and basing as required to celebrate a half century.
A small and friendly collectors circle of Peter Laing enthusiasts exists on the MeWe forum, set up by Ian Dury. https://mewe.com/join/peterlaingfigures
