So when I was a kid I used to play D&D (the basic and expert rules in the red and blue boxes). I've also played a few games recently with the 5th edition rules, which I really enjoyed. Today I was digging through some old boxes and came across some D&D white metal figures. These must date from the mid to late 1980s. I remember ordering them from a mail order catalog that I suspect I still have. They are very poorly painted (I must have had surplus orange and blue paint!) and quite bashed up so I thought I''d have a go at repainting them. They are presently having a nice bath in some Dettol. Tomorrow I'll clean them up and see what I have. :)

Yeah. Seems like ancient history now. :blink:

The Dettol bath did its thing (mostly). The flesh colour must have been some tenacious enamel. The figures are in pretty good shape over all.



I've now selected four, cleaned them up a bit and primed them ready for painting. I'll start the painting after work this week.

Watching this. I’m amazed at some of the work I see when visiting the Warhammer shops for supplies.
