I put together a page with some pics of the minis I have around.  Some are Ral Partha TSR ones , others are by Grenadier, Rafm, Heritage.

If you can help identify any of these I would appreciate it:

Any help is appreciated.

For the Heritage minis, join this group and download some of the spreadsheets from the "Files" section.

Also, some of those miscellaneous figures are Grenadier.

OMFG!  Antler Man!  I never thought I'd see him again!

My party plotted and schemed for months to off him.  We finally pulled it off on a Saturday afternoon in my parents' basement.  I remember the guy who played him was so pissed he grabbed my dad's 8 lb. maul, placed the mini on the cement floor, and hammered him into a coin of lead with a single blow!

Felt kinda guilty after that, but by the gods, we HATED that bastard!


Let mirth prevail!

Pics 6, 7, 8, and 9 under Misc/Heritage are Grenadier, although I don't recognize right-hand guy in 8 and the left-hand guy in 9 looks like a modified Grenadier figure.  IIRC all of these Grenadiers are from the Dungeon Explorers set.

The first pic (guy on a throne) looks familiar but I can't place him; I don't think he's the Minifigs WoG Iuz on Throne sans evil halfings but I can't place what I'm thinking of, offhand.

Let's see, from the bottom of the page:

Bottom picture = Bob Olley "Troll" sculpted for Ral Partha
Next above. three figures shown = The mage on the right, with the snake staff, is a Citadel from the "FA" line. Other two unknown
Next two above look like Custom Cast or Hinchcliffe ancients from the early 1970's
The three Vikings in the next picture above are Minifigs
The picture above that shows two Heritage Age of Conan line "Frost Giants" flanking a much later Heritage man-at-arms
Above those are four assorted character types, could be Grenadiers
The man-at-arms above those four, with a blue tabard, is a Grenadier from the boxed sets. He's pictured with what looks like a Highlander from God only knows what manufacturer
Above that pair are three pictures, each with two Grenadier characters. Various clerics, a barman, those are all Grenadiers.

Now, the ones that caught my eye - that golden fellow with the broken antenna is an Archive (later R:Kiiv) Phraint from the Arduin line

Above the Phraint is a crazy blue Cloud Giant (Grenadier?)

and above that an Archive Lion

and then two Archive Deodanths, also from the Arduin line, holding up severed heads.

And yes the two Minotaurs right above the Deodanths are Heritage, from the late Seventies

Hope this is helpful,

Thanks guys, that helps a lot.  I went through some of my Ral Partha catalogs and figured out some of them.  I will take a look at the Grenadiers tomorrow - I have an early catalog and also "the Grenadier book".

In your Misc section between the lion and the Phraint, the big blue guy with the severed heads hanging from his belt is an Ogre from Heritage's Dungeon Dwellers line, specifically from the box set "Roaming Monsters, Level Three."

There's a Heritage catalog around here somewhere (hopelessly lost in my messy office)  that has a line drawing of him.

[edit]  here we go!

Found it on the ever-wonderful Dungeon Dwellerspage!


Shanghai fun & friends!

I have managed to identify most of the minis that I have but these two I just can't find anywhere.  Anyone recognize them?

The first one is "Ral Partha Ent. 1994" and the second is "Ral Partha Ent. 1995".

The one on the left is one of four Headhunters (02-504) from the "Encounters of the Imagination" line.

I think the guy on the right is the standing version of Baron Diabolak, Death Knight (01-415) - one of the "Mounted Heroes".

Thanks!  I've been looking through catalogs and just didn't spot these two.
