Greatwhitezulu, I noticed the postage is limited to Europe. I don't know if you are looking it Ebay. BTW, I'm not bidding so we wouldn't be in a bidding war.

Perfect!
Since I am going to try to build some sort of Peter Laing group - would you mind taking and sending me some pictures - and if you know which figures they are from the catalogue, that would be even better!
If you don't have the catalogue, I can send you a copy

Guys,

It seems common, relatively, that if you like Laing figures you may also like Mike's models and strip (1st edition) minifigs. I certainly like all although there are some of the little fellows that are difficult to love :D

Anyone else here collect Mike's as well?

Had these arrive today - strip minifig Middle Imperial Romans. Great stuff! There were some Mikes oman cav in these as well and Tabletop Sarmations as well :D

I saw photos of Mikes Models in some old wargaming magazines and thought they were the same manufacturer of some Medieval figures I had (turned out the Medieval figures were Gallia) so I started looking for Mike Models. I finally got a large lot of Ottoman Turks ( a personal favorite) and bought them. After I got them I just couldn't get excited about them. I actually like the looks of them, I just couldn't get into them. They sat on a shelf for a few years and I finally gave them to a Mike Model fan. At least they finally found a loving home!

So you collect Gallia? - we never saw it over here other than in the magazine ads.

The Gallia figures are still produced by Warrior Miniatures. I place occasional orders with them.

I have a load of (still mostly unpainted!) Mikes Models medieval/renaissance for my Early English Renaissance army, plus I use them for the front rank of my Renaissance Scots.
I'll take some pictures over the weekend an upload them

Many thanks GreatWhiteZulu.
Have you seen the other PeterLaing figures that "The Last Nazgul" has on e-bay at the moment?
They aren't marked up as Laings' so you have to search through his 15mm figures to spot them

Very interesting site. I met Peter when I went to his house “Minden” in Aylesbury. He made some figures for me – Wallachian cavalry and Slovak infantry amongst others.

There’s a comment that these are 12mm figures but I remember Peter telling me that he made the figures half of what was then “regular” size 30mm. These were size of Suren and Trepidation figures – so he halved them and made 15mm.

Back in 1982 my regular partner and I were playing a WW1 campaign with my Austro Hungarians invading Bournemouth. It became rather surreal as we were sinking ships during our game and listening to the Sheffield being sunk at the same time on the radio. We stopped playing and I haven’t used the Austro Hungarians since.
I’m looking to get rid of them and their opposition WW1 Russian. I didn’t think anyone would be interested.

Perkunos - I haven't been on the site for a while (busy with work) - so only just saw you post about the Austro-Hungarians & Russians. If you still have them and are interested in selling, please let me know. My e-mail is elsewhere in this post, but to make it easier:

And for the rest of the Peter Laing afficionados out there - have a look at these two links.

The first is Bob Cordery (of Wargames Developments) blog, with more pictures of the terrain I put together based on his ideas - with Laing Prussians and Bavarians in 1866. (see post 25 April)

The second is from Jim Duncan's blog - where he is the lucky possessor of a set of Laing Crimean armies (see post Tuesday 1 May)

Thought it was about time to re-spark interest by posting some more pictures of my Peter Laing figures - including a converted "Konigsberg Gun" for my WW1 East African Germans

Hi Ian

have been missing from this thread for ages..still not getting notifications of threads..

nevertheless I have just changed to a different email address on here just in case .

Great photos..looks good

I am in the throws of deciding to let my Peter Laing 's go

I am concentrating on 25 mm now...collecting vintage 25mm, plus I have just opened a business for selling vintage and new old stock figs and sourcing rare figs..I might have to let some of my personal collection go to diversify the figs available for the business. [cottage business is a hard slog you have to let personal things go to keep it fresh]

I have a huge bunch of unpainted plus my original painted Imperial Romans i painted at 16 years old..infact the first bunch of 15mms in the country at the time. I am still unsure whether to sell these but the unpainted I may part with in future..

please note I am not sure if I will get notifications yet?

This post was also a test on if my notifications are working.
