I finally started painting up the box of Grenadier Fighting Men I picked up at last year's gaming auction. It wasn't without pitfall, I'm afraid; I snapped the frail lead leg off the first guy I picked up. But the next three fellows ended up looking like they walked right out of the old AD&D Dungeon Masters Guide.
My favorite part? The beards. They're all different. Not sure why, but that just tickles me.
Here's hoping I can avoid destroying the rest of these miniatures. They really are quite soft.
Curious what the originals look like? Here's a pic of the boxed set as it appeared when I bought it four months ago.
