How far We've Come
A shot of one of my old Peter Laing 15mm ECW units. We used to "lovingly" refer to them as "Peter Slugs"...but at the time they were ahead of their time and really they got many of us on the road to more gaming because we could afford them in High School! I still have these out for a game from time to time using a Warmaster variant for ECW. (and yes, those are Flames of War bases...) These guys have been re-based about 5 times over their lifetime. Goes to show how hard getting the "right" pike and shot rules is no small task. But you can easily see how the newer 40mm stuff has such a hold on us "old school" guys.
