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 ...

Love it 🙂
Thanks! Who knows what useful cracker scrap and plastic tat will turn up this year?

I’m inspired to look 🙂
Hope they have a stiff upper lip in the face of the jaws of death. A post to get one’s teeth into, splendid upcycling Mark.
Really I should have photographed my cheapest Pound Store figures with plastic tat terrain for that whole Facebook super cheap wargaming group scavenged terrain thing … plastic tat to plastic tat (but not into landfill). If I get more, they will become snow blocks …
This is brilliant! Your creativity is inspiring. In a million years, I don’t think I would have seen the terrain potential there.
