While looking for something else I came across these. Not sure who made them, but they date to the late 80s/early 90s and are possibly the first lead figures I ever bought.

To dip or not to dip?

Posted on May 20, 2011 at 9:28 AM Comments comments (0)

There has been a bit of discussion on TMP just lately on whether to dip or not to dip figures. Knowing that wargamers painting will vary, I decided to dip some figures that I know most wargamers have seen at some point.

I chose some clix figures. For those who don't know, these are cheap prepainted plastic figures produced by Wizkids.

First up is a 'Deep One' and 'Mad Thinker'.

Next up, is Daredevil and Lightspeed.

I think they look better - but that's just my opinion!!!
