Leigh/Russ - if you end up with any left over let me know - there are a few of us who would be happy to pay the postage to the old country, if necessary!
Also, I would like to see the ECW pictures - I have another friend whom I bought some WW1 Laing armies from who is very much into those figures.
Regards
Ian

And one more picture that really shows just what you can do with PL figures if you paint them well - a Frech WW1 officer and rifleman painted by my friend Richard Black

I found a large plastic tub full of colonials: British and Indian infantry and cavalry, Ghurkas, Egyptian camel corps etc. I know I once had Zulus, Boxers, Mahdists, and Pathans, but whether they're still around... ? I'll keep digging and see what turns up.

Leigh - did you manage to find any of those colonials?

Linked to this, don't know if you had any of the Camel Corps, but there are some nice pictures of these on my friend John Patriquin's blog

I have been busy so not posted for a while, but there has been a fair bit posted elsewhere about Peter Laing figures.
As usual, my friend John Patriquin has been busy - I especially like this post!:

http://wargamehermit.blogspot.co.uk/201 ... agons.html

A fascinating blast from the past - an interview with Peter Laing in Military Modelling back in 1982 (I still have that copy!)

http://deartonyblair.blogspot.co.uk/201 ... -1977.html

And finally, some really nice Laing Marlburian's on Henry Hyde's blog, with a link to his picture set on Flickr

http://henrys-wargaming.co.uk/?p=1458

I have been gradually re-furbishing some of the various collections of Laings I have bought over the last few months - so will be posting some more pictures soon

Hope you enjoy!
Ian

I have been off-line for quite a while, so I thought I ought to post some new pictures - here are some very nice Peter Laing Marlburian's that I acquired on behalf of a friend recently - Enjoy!

And now some Peter Laing colonials, from my collection, mostly originally painted by my friend Barry Carter, who introduced me to Peter Laing figures a VERY long time ago!
First, the Pathans take to the hills

Great stuff

for some reason I didn't receive the email that someone has replied.

they look fantastic

only found your recent posting as I just dragged out my Peter laings today after a huge move interstate. Thought I would Google for more inspiration and found this. That is incredible painting ian.

Glad you like them! Sadly, I can't claim credit for most of the painting - almost all of the colonials were painted by my friend Barry Carter (though I did paint the British Cavalry and Baluchis)

Part of the excitement about collecting figures is the paint job others do...I believe if possible original paintjobs should be kept and just touched up if they are not past it..in this case you have scored some very nice figures. [both purchased and your own and sit in harmony.]

I my self in my 25mm collecting have saved many an old paintjob by touching up chips and depending on the figures adding a wash if the paintjob was not super clean...even though a wash may take away from an old style paintjob if it was a rough paintjob it can keep the essence of the painter but make the figures not look like they need a repaint..But sometimes a wash modernises a figure so has to be done across the whole army. In the case of these PL figures a wash cannot be used as there is little detail to hold it but I find even 25mm minifigs can take a wash ok.

It is testimony to Peters sculpting reasoning that these figures painted well are very good wargaming figures and look the part ...infact I loose interest in the modern super detailed figure of present...simple sculpting and good painting works a treat.
