I recently received some unidentified minis in Holmes Basic set. They seem to be from two sets. Any help in identification would be appreciated.

The first group is six identical "duck-men" (beaks, webbed feet) - or lizardmen? orcs?
The bottoms are stamped "1979, 1369".


The second group is nine hobbits. Four identical pairs of male hobbits, plus a lone female hobbit.
The bottoms are stamped "Custom Cast, 1975"
These may be: Der Kriegspieler - Fantastiques - 25mm - SHIREFOLK - THE LITTLE PEOPLE - 1051 Townspeople (eight) (from this page)
But the female would remain unaccounted for.


My first ever photos of minis!  :)

I think the duck-men are Heritage, although I don't have a pic to verify at the moment. I'm guessing they are from the Fantasy line, blister 1369 MacDuck with Claymore. Here's the link to the Fantasy line on the Lost Minis Wiki:

And you are indeed correct about the ID on the hobbits (DKF 1051), including the female who can be seen in the pics on the LMW page:

There were some very early RQ minis out there too, might be worth checking into:  IIRC some eBay auctions ended in the past month or so for some.
