When I first started looking for Peter Laing figures, trying to find information about them was hard to come by. There were maybe half a dozen photographs on Google. One goal of my blog was to get more photographs of the figures online. I think if you Google Peter Laing figures or miniatures, you will find a good collection to enjoy. The small group of Peter Laing fans have shared their pictures and stories about the figures. Reading these stories of people's memories of the early years of Peter Laing, I found that their stories only made me appreciate these figures more and their place in war-game history.
I have been trying different ways to use my new Heroscape pieces. My last idea was to use Neil Thomas' ONE HOUR WARGAMES. The field would be 7 hexes by 7 hexes (originally it was going to be 6 x 6). I played a couple of games, one using my "no brain game", the second I used BATTLELORE. I think using the Richard Borg rules with modified movements will make for a good quick game. I used OHW army selection charts and scenarios. The game lasted a little over half an hour; great when you are pressed for time. Below are a few shots of the Peter Laing figures in action.

|These elephants need to see more action.|
|The elephants crash through the Arab center.|
|The Arabs manage to kill two of the elephants....|
