Scribd is a fantastic resource but I find it a real pain to navigate and I'm locating stuff mostly through a combination of pot luck and trial and error. I expect there is still loads of it out there and it is always useful to have lots of links to this material on one site, so if you are aware of anything out there that could be useful to our cause post a link in the comments section below. Hopefully, at some point in the future I will be able to create a link post which contains everything in one place but I suspect that is a while off. Apparently, there is a huge amount of scanned WDs from our period available 'out-there' but I have yet to locate it!
Anyone know where else we should look?
Well, here they are...
It seems that I used quite a bit of yellowy orange as a base colour (especially around the ribs and pelvis) and drybrushed over the lot. Pretty basic compared with my methods now but I'm still slightly proud of them, considering I was 11 when I painted them.
I also found the TINMAN model! I loved this miniature back in the '80s and we used him a lot in our battles. Sadly, he was squashed by my step-brother and is broken but a rudimentary pin is sticking out of the stump so it should be fairly straight forwards to fix him. If I remember correctly, he was released in '85-'86 for use in a game designed by Jes Goodwin called 'The Good, the bad and the rusty' alongside the seminal Skrag the Slaughter and the less seminal Oxy Cetolyne.
Here he is...
I might continue on my hunt and see if I can find that game sometime in the future, I never got around to playing it but it might be a laugh.
Well, time to depart once more but before I do I encourage you to get looking in those old boxes that I know you have stashed away to see if you can uncover any hidden gems of your own.
