Never seen the buildings, I've always wondered what they were like.

Great to see those old 15mm strips again, I bought many of them and recall being impressed by the level of detail etc. Looking at that advert today they still look good to me.

I think Hinchliffe also produced a 15mm range on strips around that time, called system 15 or something like that? Anyone remember those?

Great blog, always something of interest to the wargamer of a certain vintage!

Will - please see next post. I thought I had already posted this somewhere before, either here or on The Lone S Ranger, but i can't find it

Wasn't Hinchliffe System 12? Won't pretend to be certain about that!

The Old Metal Detector said...

Yep, System 12 - short lived as they tended to break off at the ankles

Lee said...

Ah yes, it was 'system 12'. They must have introduced it as a rival scale to 15mm?

Wow. The first miniatures I ever painted were Minifigs 15mm strips ECW. I thought that cutting up the strips was a pain, but I rather liked the figures. I wish they were still available.
