Peter Laing 15mm Crimean War

There are several references to this unusual Crimean 800 series produced quite early on by Peter Laing in Donald Featherstone’s Wargamers Newsletter, such as this mention in May 1979.

See also my Some Peter Laing adverts blog page for more details of who and how this was suggested by Ian McLellan and the Southeast Scotland Wargamers Group.
