WOW I didn't realise there were that many lead 8mm figs produced, I've got
some old dreads too and some old robots, in the different configs like
conqueror, castellan (not the knight), crusader, and a few others. I was
lucky enought to get some of the lead mekaniaks, big guns and wartracks in
some blisters of old Titanicus ork vehicles. How I wish they would take
up this pratice again, it would sure win back a hell of a lot of good will
that they have lost.
