RAFM made Doctor Who miniatures back in the 80's.

ETA: seems they were Citadel sculpts, RAFM just cast them for the north american market.

ETA 2: And they were FASA branded.

Lots of hands in that treasure chest.

Current Bones Count:  Total:  awaiting recount  Painted:  132

What a great thread to read. An awesome trip down memory lane.

I was just using a couple Polly S paints this past week. Those bottles have to be among the first acrylics I ever owned and over twenty years old now... maybe closer to twenty-five. Wow. I'll be sad when those two finally go bad (they'll never run out as they are both rarely used colors).

Oh well, things aren't like they used to be... and they probably never were.

I hope nobody minds my resurrecting this awesome thread. I kind of like the history in it.

Also, my husband found me a twenty year old Ral Partha Feathered Serpent shrink wrapped in the original box, so I iz very happy. I may miss my old horde of minis, but this gives me a little physical connection to that time.

Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.

Thanks for conducting a beneficial resurrection! My first purchase was the Grenadier Dwarves box set in like '82. Some have been painted several time and are in my display case.

My mom who thought this hobby was rediculous had a neighbor who dabbled in art paint them as a surprise on my birthday. She did a ogod job, but no primer meant they needed repainted and touched up over time. I hated my experience painting model vehicle with Testors and got some Liquitex acrylics at a local tiny art shop and painted everything with them...wish i would have known about artist mediums at the time to thin them though ;-)
