Olfactory Colours

(Original 1968 version of Minifigs S range Hun archer; S Range Pict archer; PBs German warrior)

In the section "Forming an Ancient Army" in WRG Ancient War Game Rules first edition (July 1969) the authors offer the following invaluable painting tip: "Germans mainly blond, shaggy and slightly smelly, and in dull colours, navy blue being popular". Quite how you achieve the odour of ancient German using a paintbrush is, alas, not explained.


  1. If you have to ask, you'll never know.

  2. I'm working on a secret new process that I hope to have perfected, probably sometime after I stop casting figures.

  3. The PB German looks far from clumbsy as this range usually does?
