Here's some more crops. The more I browse through the SoL catalogs, the more excited I get for these to arrive. Should be here in 2-4 days now! The weeks of waiting are really building the anticipation as I identify more of the models. The first crop shows another one of the Mantic dwarfs and one of the Ogryn that initially attracted me to the lot as well as what appears to be another old Servo Skull. I don't recognize the middle and bottom left though, but the red one may be another Mantic dwarf. No idea on the bottom one. The real prize is the one in the upper right which I discovered in the pages of the 1995 catalog. He definitely appears to be Necromunda Bounty Hunter 1! If anyone has any idea what the unknown two are, do tell. Also tell if you think can confirm or deny my identification for the rest. Anyway, the second crop looks a bit like a Tyrannid. Maybe a 1st gen Genestealer? Not sure with that weird gun in his hand and I haven't been paying attention to the Tyrannid pages in SoL because I'm not that interested in them beyond lore.

The red one is a mantic "forgefather" dwarf. The pan magazine on top of the gun is one of their "things".

It's a bad angle o most of the others, but the big'un on the right is a GW 40k ogryn.
The one behind the red dwarf is maybe a Necromunda figure, but I need a more front-on angle to be sure.

I'm OVER 50 (and so far over everyone's BS, too).

Thanks for the confirmation. That's what I got from the image, but as you said, these angles are bad. I'll have better ones up once they arrive.

Nice! I thought I recognized him from the old catalog but wow does he look so much cooler in that picture! So many details that the small black and white images on SoL just can't convey properly. I love the bionic eye.

Good catch. That certainly looks correct to me. I don't think I would have got that one from the angle and painting, but now that you've pointed it out I can see it. The sword must be pointing directly at the camera and the torch is painted brown so I thought it was some sort of branch staff like Gandalf's.

Anyone recognize these two? I think the one is an old IG model, but not sure. The other might be Necromunda or Mordheim maybe? Not even sure they're GW to be honest.

They've finally arrived! Most survived the shipping, but a few fell apart. A couple actually broke, but nothing I can't fix if I want to. Unfortunately, the Mordheim guy actually had his sword hand missing, so that sucks. I'll probably stick a Laspistol or something on him and make him a Priest or Psyker. It turns out that a few of the models had been modified, but I can make 'em work anyway. The most important ones are still in one piece. I could use help IDing the random non-GW models that came with however, so here they are:

So thanks to the Dakka Painting Challenge Round 63, I have determined the rhino centaur looking mini to be a converted "The Gor-Gor" from Reaper miniatures Dark Heaven Legends line. I have also since double checked the bases for more info and discovered that the three models in the separate photo have helpful stickers that state they are Paizo models. Still working on the rest. I'll probably use them as painting practice and put them to use in DnD or other such games.

Perhaps those Warzone figures are these boys. There are more Warzone figures at that site if you need to make more comparisons.

The wikipedia article on Warzone (game).

I like the real world conversions for the IG APCs.

That led me to some interesting things, but the models you linked look nothing like anything I have. Did you maybe link the wrong models?

The guy with the feather jacket is from Dreamblade, the green fellow with the gold armor is from Heroclix. The two in the bottom picture, back row, far left. The lady in red in the back row, same picture, looks to be the medical gal from Kill Team:Rogue Trader.

Wow, excellent eye. And an extensive knowledge of old games. I had to do a fair amount of digging to find that guy in the feather coat without the proper base. Turned out to be called "Hawk-Eyed Instigator". I didn't look up the Heroclix one because once you mentioned it, it seemed obvious from the shape of the mini's actual base. That medic from KT:RT was a real surprise. She has a non-standard base so I figured she couldn't be a GW product. It's definitely her though. It's unfortunate that her syringe needle is broken off, but those small parts tend to. On that note, do you know if there's a KT expansion that has Tyranids? I couldn't find one like that on GW's site, but the Tyranid Genestealer looking guy has a very similar base to the KT:RT medic. From the bottom at least, since it's been covered in sand on top. They do have the same paint edging on the bases that none of the other models have, which makes it more likely they were used together.

Sorry, my mistake. I misremembered what was in an earlier photo. The hats were similar, but the Mishima troops have no weapons, and the one you posted had guns and WW1 British helmets. Imperial Trenchers from Warzone would be a closer fit, but Prince August does not have any.

Are you looking at the Guardsmen that were determined to be converted with WFB Bretonian infantry bits? These are the possibly Warzone mini's from the first set that are still unidentified:

There's also the crouching Commissar that no one has identified:


On the topic of the Tyranid-ish model, unfortunately no dice on the two KT expansions from what I could find.

I've got a weird hunch that the Genestealer might be a heavy conversion of a super old metal mini with a new head. Look at the second one in the bottom row here
http://www.solegends.com/citcat1993usb40k/c1993us40kp0025-140121-00.htm - the overall pose and the legs seem to fit?
... compare to the first one here http://www.solegends.com/citcat1991a/cat1991ap102genestealers-01.htm - they came with a plastic arms sprue: http://www.solegends.com/citcat1991a/cat1991ap112plastics-00.htm

Yes, I remember seeing some of those old model Tyranids on my cousins shelf when I was just a kid. They're one of the reasons I feel inclined to believe it's a Tyranid model of some sort. Unfortunately, it can't be one of those because it's entirely made out of a semi-flexible plastic. I've never seen GW use a material like this, which is why I put it with the non-GW models.

These ones, from the first post.

The crouching commissar and unknown troops you linked to are unknown to me. Those helmets seem vaguely samurai-like, but they don't match the Mishima figures.

Genestealer guy is a Reaper Chronoscope Bathalian. Flexible plastic means it is BONES. Not sure, but the green triceratops with the triangular gun could be a very old Triceraton from TMNT. There were some models made from the old comic series.

Yes, those guys are the ones we determined to be a Cadian/Bretonian mix with a few extras. The Commissar is probably a third party model made to look like 40k as is very common. Warzone was the only guess for the other models.

Yup, found the Bathalian. One of the Kulathi Left Handed three pack it seems. I'll probably have to dig deeper than I care to if you're correct on the dino guy, but I'll see if I can confirm that. Thanks for the info.

It would seem you are correct. I found only two pictures that were large enough to confirm the model, so it seems those pieces are OOP. However the site originally hosting those two images still carries the line, except that none of the models look like the ones I have. From that site's description, it would seem that the original producers of Void sold them the rights to the game, so it is likely that what I have are from the original release and what's on the site now are the newer models.

I was browsing through the old catalogs today to see exactly what models I have in that set of old metal IG and I discovered that what I thought was a medic with a communication device is actually labeled "Medic Eating Vegiburger" XD

Second row from the back, second model from the left. Can't miss the big red "+" on his medic bag:


I'm 99% sure it's the same model here:

Alright, some models and bits I bought a couple weeks ago finally arrived today. I bought them for the three CSM named heroes, and the Eldar Farseer, Necron, and Ork Nob say what they are on the tab, but I can't read the tab on the big Ork boss guy nor the Dark Eldar looking one. Best I can make out is GRIM on the Ork and RAZHAR on the DE. Help IDing them wanted as well as confirming that the three CSM and the Necron have all pieces. Would also be helpful to know what all the bits in the middle are. And some more info on the Necron. He looks like an old lord, but he's more Egyptian looking than I'm used to on Necrons made in metal.

Drazhar, looks right from the partial letter on the tab, but I'm not familiar with DE units. Thanks for the help! Not sure what I'll do with him. I'm looking up more info about him and see if I have the complete model there or not (are his arms in the bits?)

No problem. Can you confirm that they are all there, or am I missing a small bit on one or more?

If you know what something is called your best bet would be to have a look at Stuff of Legends and check the parts against the original catalogue.
