Pingo posted a topic in General FantasyI could have sworn I already asked about these, but darned if I can find where. I got given a handful of old school lead figures from a couple of generous sources. Some of them I figured out immediately what they were or lucked into info on the Lost Minis Wiki. But these ones have me stumped, despite in some cases clear markings. May I ask for some help from the collective wisdom? I believe most of these to date from no later than 1991 or so. They have been primed and washed with a thinned brown to bring out detail. 1. Some sort of pretty early orc-goblins, no base markings (subsequently glued to pennies). I found pictures of them in a group image on ebay with information so inaccurate it was laughable. Identified by K2h2m3 as from the Grenadier set AD&D 5002 "Monsters", Goblin w/ Axe and Goblin w/ Sword, 1980-1982 2. (Central figure only) A wizard with upraised staff, manufacturer unknown, base markings unclear. He's the figure in the middle (the other four are identifiable as from the old Grenadier boxed set 5001, "Dungeon Explorers"). Identified by Rob Dean as from Heritage Models set 1302, "Evil Wizards and Ring Wraiths", FF2-A, sculptor unknown, circa. 1980?, no later than 1981-1982 3. A witch, base markings "MP90" or "HP90" and something unclear Identified by Xherman1964 as Metal Magic C1017c, "Witch with Cat", sculpted by Michael Immig, circa 1992. 4. Possibly an elf? Identified by knarthex as Ral Partha 01-319, "Elf Thief 3 Stage" 319b (stage two), sculpted by Tom Meier, circa. 1986. 5. An unusually tall for the time ninja, apparently signed "Ridolfi" on the bottom and with the possible date "90" Identified by Bob Ridolfi as one of his earliest efforts with an extremely limited distribution, see post 17 below. 6. A fighter, possibly a paladin with a mace, very clearly marked "Grenadier 1991 A644" -- and I still can't find any information or visual confirmation on him! Identified by alchemist as from the Grenadier set 1414 "Fighting Men Champions", sculpted by Mark Copplestone, 1991.
