Any tips, or has it passed the point of no return?

I have picked up some old but nicely painted figures painted in the late 70s, early 80s. There are 3 white horses now with a distinctly yellow tinge.

I assume there is no miracle cure to reverse the yellowing?

no is the short answer........turn them into a dun/buckskin, paint the points black. That's what I would do.

No - these are classics. Beautiful Middle Imperial Roman strip Minifigs The only problem is that I need to rebase from 5th edition WRG

Like the old man's underpants, there's no getting that out. As K. says, it's a repaint.

With one convulsive bound, he was free!
