Some time ago I acquired a large lot of old Citadel figures, some of which had the dreaded leadrot. The seller wasn't a mini collector and I got them at s good price so I didn't make a fuss. They languished a few months on my desk looking folorn until this morning when they were sent to a spa bath of Mineral oil and pure Turpentine. Here they are recuperating before being undercoated. The mix of oil and turps had a very distinctive smell which instantly reminded me of going brass rubbing as a child.
