Okay. Problem is, I can use brand new reaper minis for pencils without much difficulty. I am perfectly willing to let someone inspect them and let me know which are good. I also get the lighter and brighter (until you hit them with primer and then strip it off, then all minis go dark) unfortunately, most of these are recovered minis and either don't have markings or are not on either list (Target, in specific) I have about 80 Chronopia dwarves I have no earthly use for.
Finally, what is the generally accepted break point between old ral partha and new ral partha. 70s and early 80s are obvious because of the metal, but where in the 80s did it change over?
This is a really great opportunity so I look forward to the fun of picking both between the old stuff and the new.
Thanks for helping out the newbie
