If you like a challenge however, can you ID any of these chaps and chap'esses . . . and err . . . things?
He has a plug ofr a heavy base and a choice of heads, one of which reminds me of Ro-Jaws from 2000 AD! He is also glued at the waist from two main parts.
Crude sculpts, but really nice 'Old School' look to them, two babes and an Alien who refers-back to Star War's Admiral Akbar in the head area?
I think the three zombies may be one of the newer companies?
Second wizard is a denser, hard, antiqued-wash, pewter, and probably a touristy thing, missing a coloured 'gem' stone on the plinth.
Are these Orks or Goblins? Does it matter? Is it a case of size v's scale? Who cares, someone painted them beautifully and then let them go . . . or died? Anyway, they are not my work, but I like them!
They appear to have small round bases under the landscaping, so probably not Games Workshop, does anyone recognise them? Did you paint them and let them go while remaining very-much alive?
A right old mix here, but most of them seem to be the same maker (most of the second two rows), they look a bit like some Ral Partha, but the bases are unmarked, there is some damage/paint and the cavalryman may be way-off but his base is similar ans he came with some of the others.
Top row are one-offs, the skinky one having a small oblong base, the other two are baseless, but may have been removed from Games Workshop type 'slotts'?
Total mix - anyone recognise any of them? I'm guessing there's some Games Workshop Epic in there? And the Arab thief may be more a colonial or medieval thing?
Nude babe! Based like the green chaps above and could be from an ancient slave range, but much cruder that the Rose Miniatures ones?
Don't know if these are ancient/medieval or fantasy, but they are here as they go in the bag with the next lot!
These were all bought by me between 1980 and 1983 from either Concord Models in Aldershot or Tangley Model Workshop in Guildford, but are not 'their' ranges, but seem to be the same maker.
EY from the 1:72nd Scale Multiverse Blog has identified the first two as being from a Minifigs (Miniature Figurines) 'Wheel of Torture' set (I think the wheel ended-up in the wagon-spares!), but the rest are a mystery to me? The last three and the hanged-man might be from the same lot as the previous image - I think!
