Poundland Space Marines on the DeathZap! Blog site

A new blog follower for my Pound Store Plastic Warriors blog  – welcome to The Wargaming Pastor – is using the good old Poundland tiny soldiers in his sci-fi battles on his DeathZap! Website.

The blog strap line “Anyone Can Afford Wargaming” is much in line with the  similar Pound Store Plastic Warriors mantra of “Little Wars on a Budget”.

Those useful Poundland figures painted up on the DeathZap! Website

Sadly in my local small Poundland stores these figures have vanished – for the time being? – but are still available more expensively on the internet.

Thankfully I managed to stockpile several Poundland tubs and have used them for various conversions including space marines and little green men.

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 ...
