Any lead masters know what these are? They look like junk to me but then I know nothing at all about minis. Click on image for larger pic.

None of the figures strike a chord; can you provide some details from the bottoms of any of the bases, in terms of letter/numbers/mfr/year combos?

Nothing on the bases except pretty poor finishing I'm afraid. Except in one case, the wizard with staff, there are some scratches that might be MV - MIGHT being the key word. Wonder if they are some sort of DIY attempt - some of them are little better than featureless blobs of lead and the trimming is pure amateur hour? They came along with a GW 2nd print basic set although I don't know if they were purchased around the same time.

They are old Citadel minis plus a couple from Citadels FS(fantasy special)range

Hi Cushion, like I said, I'm clueless about this sort of stuff. Is that 80's, 90's, later? Worth sticking on ebay or would the packaging costs be more than the bid?

I think 3rd right top is an original White Dwarf FS17

That can go for nice money on its own.

I really like the non-figure ones. Those would be great for Warhammer Quest. :)

Thanks for the help guys. I'll stick them up for 99p and let the market decide I guess. At least I can identify them now. My description was going to be 'Lumps of lead, going cheap!'
