As per previous posts, the joy of painting old school minis is something that never leaves me for long... this time it was a few of the Heritage Orcs, back from when they had the licence for the 1978 Ralph Bakshi cartoon version of Lord of the Rings. Max Carr sculpts and they really capture the feel of the movie.
1811 Saruman's Urak-Hai Orcs of the White Hand Clubs
I've since tidied up the helmets a little as I noticed the red at the metal edge looked wrong.
Besides a myriad of blisters for the range (including Cliff Sanderson sculpted 75mm ones), they also did a couple of boxed games... no exclusive minis unfortunately.
Edit - apparently the balrog only came with this set. The blistered variant was much larger.
The full range (and more) is on the Lost Minis WIKI;
A few years earlier Duke Seifried (amongst other sculptors) at Der Kriegspielers sculpted a large 'not' Lord of the Rings range including this Fellowship set. Games Workshop imported them back in the day but they were too expensive for my hobby budget at the time. I've named the Hobbits as I think they should be... Frodo is the only obvious one...
1057 The Companions
The four Hobbits
The full range can be seen on the Lost Minis Wiki;
Michael over at Classic Miniatures has most of these old ranges available nowadays;
Finally, a couple of minis I am completely at a loss to identify... a wizard and a monk. Early 80's or late 70's I assume. Help!
