In praise of Peter Laing Miniatures: Part 4

Ian Dury has sent me some photographs of his Peter Laing Crimean War figures ... fighting a battle on his PORTABLE WARGAME terrain board! He has kindly given me permission to share them with my regular blog readers.

The Battle





The British





The Russians








A very impressive collection ... and great looking terrain as well!

  2. Conrad Kinch,

    I gather that he has ... and I have some pictures of his games that I hope to share with my regular blog readers over the next few days.

    All the best,

  4. Great use of scouring pads for the terrain, if I'm not mistaken.

  5. Fitz-Badger,

    I hope that Ian Dury will write something about how he created his terrain. It is simple and effective as well as being flexible to use ... and I suspect that people might want to copy his method.

    All the best,

    Bob

  6. Airhead,

    As far as I can remember, most of the terrain is made from small squares of industrial-quality carpet tiles! These are fairly rigid (they tend to have a stiff-ish plastic backing), are reasonably cheap to buy, are hard-wearing, and come in a variety of colours.

    All the best,

    Bob
