Hello I'm Mark Mr MIN, Man of TIN. Based in S.W. Britain, I'm a lifelong collector of "tiny men" and old toy soldiers, whether tin, lead or childhood vintage 1960s and 1970s plastic figures. I randomly collect all scales and periods and "imagi-nations" as well as lead civilians, farm and zoo animals. I enjoy the paint possibilities of cheap poundstore plastic figures as much as the patina of vintage metal figures. Befuddled by the maths of complex boardgames and wargames, I prefer the small scale skirmish simplicity of very early Donald Featherstone rules. To relax, I usually play solo games, often using hex boards. Gaming takes second place to making or convert my own gaming figures from polymer clay (Fimo), home-cast metal figures of many scales or plastic paint conversions. I also collect and game with vintage Peter Laing 15mm metal figures, wishing like many others that I had bought more in the 1980s ...

    1. Correctly identified as Airfix WW2 Japanese, a very versatile set – both OOHO and 1:32 that I often buy when I see them, both Airfix and cloned pirate copies. I’ve variously used them as Union and
      Confederate infantry with Kepis, Imagi-Nations Troops like these (loosely based on Trumpton Chigley and Camberwick Green Pippin Fort boys) and rarely used as Japanese!
      I have slowly been building up my Featherstone library, a few books a year.
