I was curious whether anybody had these either of these paint and play minis set. They were put out by Heritage USA/Dwarfstar in the early eighties. My friend Matt didn't get D&D, but he got these instead. We never bothered reading the rules back then as we just used the dungeon and figures with my Moldvay Basic Set. I managed to get a copy of the rules recently and while they're VERY simple they're also kind of neat.
The system is a simple d6 with a plus or minus affixed to the roll. Figures roll their Fighting ability and if the attacker beats the defender's die roll then he inflicts as many wounds on the defender's endurance as the margin he won by.
The guy who runs the Dungeon Dwellers minis site has a 3-d diorama of the Crypt set which he brought to Gencon this last year apparantly.
Here's one of the figures stats:
