Lead Rot in action

This is a little video made as steel probes gently poke at the 'Female Thief' miniature shown in the previous post. It was so afflicted with Lead Rot that it was not worth trying to save, so its further destruction is documented here.

The dust and nastiness left behind is all that remains of a nice detailed cast.

Remember: it can happen anywhere! Protect your minis!


  1. horrible, horrible, horrible.

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. OMG I have this very same figure boxed up in storage whilst I am overseas. I am so panicking now. All my pre-1990 figures are unpainted and stored. it'll be years yet before I can get to them!
