Peter Pig 15mm figures
Peter Pig is one of the world's leading 15mm manufacturers.  We make 5500 different figures and models.  These are distilled into   1800 (15mm) packs. Every range has an associated set of 15mm rules. Also there are related 15mm scenery ranges to accompany the figure ranges.  In these days of wandering measures of sizes into 18mm, 12mm and other sizes close to 15mm, Peter Pig has remained true to the 15mm ideal.  These other sizes are often an attempt by a manufacturer to create a market  for just their peculiar size. It is also used by sculptors who cannot work well with the 15mm size restriction and so need extra size in order to create acceptable sculpts. Peter Pig will continue to do 15mm wargame figures.  We will also constantly return to each range in order to carry out updates and additions.
Thus we have  15mm ranges with longevity and future potential.

Here are a few photos I took on the day (8th February 2020).  

Held at the central location of Bournemouth beach centre.

Just "general shots" rather than an in depth review. The main trader hall was large and well filled with 40 + trader stands.  The second hall happened both days of the weekend and contained hundreds of gamers playing cards, fantasy and historical competitions. Very busy up until 10 at night. There were smaller side rooms and areas for cos play which were great to see. A show with a good mixture of many hobby aspects. Most historical games were 15mm, followed by 28mm and then 20mm.  Not much 1/300th on show. The halls were well lit and easy to navigate. All on one level.  Disabled access was good too. catering was fine but expensive (£2.55 for a bottle of  Pepsi).

This show is in its 4th year (?) and has become the biggest show (floor space)  in the south of the UK.

A participation game of the Pirate land raid from Peter Pig. Busy all day, with 9 games being played.
