The 300 range of AWI figures is announced with a special note of figures “suitable for Washington’s Army” wearing Tricorns.
The reviews by Donald Featherstone mention two new ranges – Feudal and AWI, some Saxons, the first few Ancient Greeks (“very exciting figures”) before some are even advertised.
He picks out the Saracen standard bearer (M204) which was not even in the Laing adverts yet and a “superb” mounted Norman knight on rearing horse:
Donald Featherstone writes: “very exciting figures and I applaud Peter’s intention of enlarging his range to cover as many periods as possible without losing sight of the need for an “in-depth” coverage.”
Peter Laing’s comment on other potentially rival 15mm makers is interesting: “as opposed to the rather grim rivalry which exists between model soldier firms, Peter Laing’s attitude is to be praised when he says “I am interested to hear that Minifigs are bringing out 15mm figures because I am certain that the more firms in the business the more popular the scale will become.”
