Some Peter Laing adverts

Peter Laing first advertised his 15mm Marlburian figures in the October / November 1972 issue of Military Modelling.

From Military Modelling Wargames Manual 1982/3

I like this advert (below) with the confident strap line “I do not guarantee they win wargames but they do put up a good show!”

Again Military Modelling early 1980s advert surrounded by my ECW figures
