Peter Laing WW1 -A trip down memory lane - Part 3 The Germans

I hope this 3 part trip down memory lane has conjured some good memories of owning Peter Laing figures and if you have never seen them before an idea of just how large the range was!


  1. I still have the Battle with Asquith’s article in. I bought the rules (Trench by TTG?) off the back of it a few years later. They were pretty awful! My first colonials were all Peter Laing and, as all old school, painted up very well. Peter was a nice chap to deal with too. He was very patient in helping out an awkward 16 year old!

    1. Hi Jeffers
      Thank you for taking the time to post and for sharing your memories. I am seeing Stuart for the first time in many years tomorrow so your comments are a coincidence.

  2. I still have some Peter Laing WW1 figures and loved seeing this collection .

  3. Hi
    Glad you liked the pictures. I had to search my computer to find these but I am glad that I did. It seems to have many a little grey cell drifting but to an earlier time. This was just one Range and it was huge. Bob had a lot of Renaissance Peter Laing figures back in the day and that was a pretty extensive as well.

  4. Thanks for sharing. I posted the link for each of your Peter Laing Blog posts across to the Peter Laing figures page on MeWe (exiled home of the old Peter Laing collectors circle on the withdrawn Google + community pages) set up by Ian Dury.

  5. Hi Mark, silly of me not to have put Ian's link up. I am a 'follower/member' on the MeWe site. Thanks for taking the time to do this for me. Much appreciated.

  6. This has been a lot of fun! I always meant to have a try at early WWI on the Eastern Front using Peter Laing figures. Sadly, life got in the way, but perchance to dream. Great getting to live vicariously through the photos you have shared of these armies.

    Best Regards,
