Have found a small B6 size booklet, black & white, called the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Action Art Painting Guide. Anyone know what this might be?


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

Oh, you want an answer beyond "Yes"?  :)

If it looks like the booklet on the right, then it goes with the Grenadier Action Art set 8001.  If it doesn't, then it is from another Action Art set.  Each booklet is a painting guide for the set in which it was included, so it has drawings of the appropriate miniatures.  You should be able to match it to the correct set.

It's the one on the right. Pretty worthless then, huh?
Thanks John.

Well . . . the booklet is part of the Action Art boxed set.  The booklet is still usable as a booklet, i.e. readable.  The paints and brushes are dried out and worthless.

Depends on which set it's from, actually, Ian:  each of the AA sets are progressively more rare, it seems, and often they don't include the booklets.  



You can compare/contrast the 4 Action Art sets @ http://74.125.45.132/search?q=cache:VzN ... =firefox-a but that won't help you to ID the booklets, since the sets in that auction were all shrink!



If no one else is able to help you, I'm pretty sure that I have all 4 AA booklets back at home in KS (I'm in NJ for the holidays), and I can check on them then.

It's 8001 judging from the minis. Ah, well. Might get 99p for it.
