Enough is enough. I've carted these guys through uncounted moves since the Fall of 1975, when I picked up my first order of pre-blister Grenadier(I had them mailed to a friend's house so that my mom wouldn't know that I had blown all my summer lawnmowing money on toy soldiers).

42 years is long enough to wait for a paint job, though in all fairness, it probably took me that long to learn how to paint 1970's lead . . .

Beautiful! My oldest figures are a set of Grenadier Hill Giants (AD&D line from 1980!). Mine have been painted since the late 90's, and I am very happy to game with them every chance I get. Thanks for sharing. Thrilled to see they did not succumb to lead-rot! Cheers!

That lawn mowing money was well-spent. What else would you have bough with it back then that you can still enjoy today?
