Lost Minis Wiki question, extra pieces in old set

Recommended Posts

So, as I mentioned, I was given a pristine old Grenadier set of Champions supervillains for Christmas.

 

On the cover is a little splash logo: “FREE Starter Scenario Game Aid and Figure Accessories”

 

The “Starter Scenario Game Aid” is just a folded piece of paper with a hex map on one side and some suggestions on the other.

 

But the “Figure Accessories” are two actual, substantial molded pieces: a pair of rockets and what I think is a hover-scooter.

 

You can see them in the middle row on the far right, between two figures, here:

These two pieces are not pictured on the box art, nor are they listed in the set description.

 

They definitely go with the set. The box was sealed when I received it.

 

They are not mentioned nor shown on the Lost Minis Wiki page of the set:

Question: Should I document and upload pictures of these accessories to the wiki?

 I would...

 

I've seen a couple of these sets for sale before, but never with the  "game aid and accessories"  included. Definitely worth doing if you feel like taking the time to do so.

Most of the time, when somebody finds a factory-sealed set they don't open it to confirm contents, so there are probably a fair number of sets floating around whose owners have no idea what the "game aid and accessories" are. Anyone with an open set most likely lost them long ago.

I know for a fact that two of the action art boxes have unlisted parts not shown. If I had the ability I would update them.

After all, have you ever seen this information before opening the box and finding the Things? Information is so often lost because it wasn't "important". Random hover-scooter minis may have been lost to time and trash cans solely because nobody knew what they were. You can fix that.

The additional items could have been added as either part of a limited time promotional campaign or as part of the requirements for sale through a national chain with enough buying power to require something extra in any sets sold through them.

As to a box being "sealed", if it's in clear plastic shrink wrap that may or may not be "factory original".  A lot of retailers would as a matter of policy run boxes through a shrink wrap machine even if the boxes were factory tape sealed as a loss prevention measure and to indicate if an item has been tampered with.

I'd definitely document the whole thing and post where appropriate.

      The dwarf is an Eureka 15mm figure (maybe 18mm, can't remember right now). I brought him with other 15mm figures to see if they would fit as brownies, gnomes or dwarves. He fits all of the roles, so now I know where to get some small folk. I actually enjoyed painting him and the 15mm landsknechts (didn't photograph them) a lot more than I expected.
       
      The monk is an old Grenadier Figure, I think you can get him at Mirliton now. I speed painted him using a Zorn Pallet. It works well for anyone who is somber or drab, it can also work well for NMM.
       
      The figures on both sides are from Ground Zero Games, i think they are from the goth set. They can work as cultists, lords or even vampires. 
       
      The maid and the butler are from Wargames Foundry. I really like the sets. The rest is still being painted. With the maid I experimented in painting an impression of some lace or embroidery on her pink skirt. I tried to make the cup she holds look like bone china.

      This picture is closer to the real colour than the one above (thought it is still not perfect, with the monks robes not being as distinct in sections as they are)

       
      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      Greetings!
       
      FF53 - Ogre from Citadel miniatures "Fiend Factory" range, early 1980's.
       
      I'm guessing that for older members of the forums, this old Citadel mini might be considered somewhat of a classic, maybe even iconic? Back in the day, It's imagery definately played a part in getting me into the hobby as a wee lad. I never owned it back then but recently picked one up & painted it up!
       
      Thanks for looking.

      Hello sentient painting creatures!
       
      So here's one I just finished painting and just got his base finished this morning and some pictures taken:
       

       
      from an eighties Ral Partha set of Julie Guthrie figures, originally called the Berserkers, with was a group of different types of fighters/warriors. Nice set, as is all of what the Goddess Guthrie creates.
       
      With this one, I also am using as a comparison set, because I also painted this one many, many years ago. So it was in the eighties, before 1986 when I graduated high school, so this painted version is of an age between 34 and maybe 39 years old, couldn't nail down an exact date exactly:
       

       
      I started out with the same skin and hair more or less on my new version, but changed up his wardrobe as to note make a carbon copy.  The new figure was painted with Reaper colors and the old version was Polly S.
       
      Anyhoos, always fun to do these little comparison shots!

      Finished this one a couple weeks ago. I think it worked out really well. It's one of my favorite Grenadier dragons I've painted so far. Not just the paint work I did, but the sculpt too. Pretty simple color palette with a B&W underpaint.

      Hello everybody!
       
      Here's a figure I just finished a few nights back and got her based.  She's a old, classic Ral Partha figure, Adventuress 01-018, so in that long list of Partha figures in "Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night" range, number 18.  I'm not sure if this is true or not, but I read out there on the Lost Mini Wiki that this was the first female adventuring type of miniature that was cast.  This is in all honesty the second version of the sculpt, don't have the first one. On the bottom, she had 1976 stamped on its base so it's a nice old figure.  
       

       
      I tried not to paint her in too bright of colors, kind of wanted her to be able to wander around with kind of calm colors.  Anyways, hope you enjoy this "historic" little mini, she was a joy to paint!
