    RPG-ing 1980's Style

    The BBC Archive posted this great clip to their facebook page of a TV segment about role-playing games from 1980. It's a super time capsule of old games and figures...
  2. This is FF-2A from the circa. 1980 Heritage Models set 1302, "Evil Wizards and Ring Wraiths", sculptor unknown. He's lead and crudely modeled. I mounted him on a one-inch fender washer for stability. I may have overdone the highlights on his staff orb a bit; I think it looks a little closer to a mushroom than a ruby. Original WIP here. I finished it last weekend over the Memorial Day Weekend paint binge.
  3. These are four of the classic old lead figures from the 1980 Grenadier "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons" boxed set #5001, "Dungeon Explorers": the Ranger, the Bard, the Cleric "turning", and the Paladin. They are marvelously clunky and awkward. I never owned them back in the day, generally preferring Ral Partha and other more gracile brands than Grenadier's old standbys. It's been neat, though, to hear my old gaming friends recognize them. They are fairly simply sculpted, rather crude, with some bodged details. The right side of the bard's face was such a mess I painted him with an eyepatch, then added a little blue detail on his lute to match. The original WIP thread was here, but after a long hiatus I finished them during a speed paint on the Memorial Day Weekend Paint Binge.
  4. These are two old lead goblins from the ancient boxed Grenadier set #5002, "Monsters". (That's what, 1980?) They are so crudely molded I couldn't figure out what they were at first. They had a ton of flash when I got them. The sculpts are hugely chunky and have some blobby areas. They also have some cute details, including a shield and scabbard held on with rope. The paint job is a little impressionistic. Okay, really impressionistic. The rust on the helmets is deliberate, at least. As they are classics I painted them in classic colors. Old style D&D goblins were orange, or tangerine, if you will, still far and away the best color for goblins. This was the original WIP thread, but I finished them rapidly during the Memorial Day Paint Binge weekend.
