I WILL finish the last of my current 42mm samurai, but in the mean time, I've started on these old TSR and Grenadier figures. My friends and I, after seeing that Wizards of the Coast are re-releasing the 1st edition AD&D books, decided to have a go at the 1st edition rules (one of my friends has all the original books.) We're just going to do one small dungeon-crawl session, but I thought it'd be nice to use almost-original figures with the old rules. (I'm also using graph paper, and will get some pizza rolls as well as seek out some old-style bottles of Mt. Dew. The only thing we won't have is a musty basement.)
I've gone with yellow goblins here (they're the Grenadier models, by the way). And I'm keeping everything else simple: all leather using the same palette, three-layer base colors, no experimentation with color combos. The paladin (in blue), Cleric (in gray) and halfling assassin (hiding up front) are TSR figures. I'm not sure what make the wizard is (in brown next to the paladin.)
I've also ordered a few minis from Reaper, some stuff for playing old-school style D&D games (though newer figures and using 4th ed.) I'll try to push through and finish these figures, then finish my samurai, then get a good start on my newer Reaper stuff, which includes some nice goblins I've had tucked away for a couple years, a few classic Reaper orcs, a troll, cyclops and a basilisk.
