No maker ID marks, no marks of any kind in fact.
I have never seen this before.
VERY cool looking though.
Can any of you tell us what it is, who made it, when and perceived value?

The Archer is a 25 MM metal mini and was placed in the pictures only for size relation.

RAFM War Turtle (part of their Reptiliads line, as seen in this RAFM catalog):

Not terribly rare, and I wouldn't pay more than $10-$20 personally. The guy who is trying to get $60 for one on eBay is notoriously overpriced:

Still a neat-looking mini, and something a Warhammer Lizardman player might want to use as a unique (and non-canon) model in they army.

The lot I purchased had over 150 minis in 2 plastic bowls and several home-made boxes with foam padding.
One of the boxes included several thin lizard man critters as well.
Looks like they go with the War Turtle.

I think I got a great deal, especially as one of the boxes is a store bought plastic box with foam padding pre-cut for Miniatures.
It is the grey plastic box standing on one side in the background in the picture.
I recall those selling for about $20-$25 BITD when miniature boxes were more popular.
I have about a half dozen of the large plastic mini boxes now, all from buying lots with Miniatures.
They include two levels of fitted precut foam; they hold around 60 miniatures each (depending on size of the minis).

Thank you for your help and the link!
