Damaged brick work

Hi all, new user so be gentle!

Basically I'm looking for some advise abour repairing damaged brickwork.

The side of my house has several bricks that are damaged, the face of them have eroded and they are crumbly, (very old house) I did think about rendering but the problem is the bricks in question are below the damp course, some one had rendered them previously to his them but i removed it because it was all damp behind it, problem is it looks awful now.

My ultimate aim is to tidy them up and then paint the whole side below the damp course. Obviously I need to remove all the old crap from it but not sue how to finish it of.

Any help would be great!
