Not certain if this is the right place to post this...

I spotted these random figures on eBay:

And I'm curious. Are they actual GW/Citadel/Maruader figures? The seller lists them as "Warhammer OOP" but I don't recognize them, nor have I found anything about them at Stuff of Legends, nor the Collecting Citdadel Miniatures wiki.

I'd appreciate any verification that they definitely are, or aren't GW WFB figures. (And any additional info anyone might have.)

Thanks.

99% sure they are not GW. , I don't think the dark elf range had any metals of that quality or size that are as old as this guy says. Try browsing Ral Partha's or reaper's range, it looks more their style. GW would never had made a piece of metal that thick, it's not their style. GW's serpents and dragons were always pretty narrow.

Base doesn't look like an "old" gw monster base either.

I believe he is referring to their rarity and desirability, not necessarily the manufacturer.

They are Ral Partha figures, but old.

Notice that Iron Wind Miniatures now owns the rights to the old Ral Partha ranges - though on a quick glance I could not find these on their online store. Might be that they haven't yet re-released them.

Ah, thanks! Yes, they are Ral Partha figures from the short lived Crucible game. I knew they looked familiar, but couldn't place them.

Regarding Iron Wind Metals, they do have a lot of the old RP figures, including some of the other Crucible line. I was at their booth at a recent show and they did have some figures that aren't on their web page yet. (That woodland dragon someone posted a pic of a 6 or so months ago, for example.)

I took a peek and RP Europe has them.

It seems the Holy Grail can be yours for only 10.95 for two. :rolleyes:
