If there is such a thing, I am a born-again fantasy role-player who has recently retrieved his lead figure collection from the dark space of my loft and started painting again after a few decades of neglect. These are all pre-slotta figures from the 1970’s and 1980’s used for AD&D. I guess the scale is 25mm though I’m not sure; but they are most certainly not the eye-popping 3mm ones I see talked about in these forums!
I’m currently perusing fleabay at the vast offerings of expensive figures to see if anything tickles my fancy that I can use in the dungeons I run. Villagers seem to be difficult to find at sensible prices. Anyway, it’s early days for getting back into the swing of things and I am looking at going to one of the conventions to see how much they have changed!20/01/2015 at 10:54 #16046
Thanks for joining TWW.
Irregular Miniatures Limited do 25/28mm stuff that may be of use:20/01/2015 at 14:57 #16058
I’ll have a peek at that site and see if it makes my wallet creak open20/01/2015 at 19:51 #16066PaintingLittleSoldiersParticipant
Welcome – You’ve joined the club of those who have giant hordes of figures stowed away for a rainy day (decades later).

Hello. Come in, make yourself at home <maniacal laughter>
Hovels do some 25mm civvies.
So do Essex (they ain’t 28mm whatever the webpage says)

Check out Tin Soldier Miniatures, they have an old school 25mm fantasy line:
They’ve a few oddities in there, including sets of villagers. Precious few pics of these on the web though, but the few I’ve seen were “true” 25mm (i.e. small by today’s 25mm standards), reasonably well detailed and quite “characterful” – though that might just be nostalgia at work.21/01/2015 at 19:41 #16116
Excellent tips chaps!
Now I have so many choices I’m too excited to make a sensible decision 🙂
I’ll take a proper look at those sites on my PC rather than my crappy iPad thing and start spending.21/01/2015 at 21:16 #16123Robey JenkinsParticipant
If you’re prepared to go up-scale slightly to the now-mainstream 28mm, you should check out Reaper’s Bones series of plastic minis at low, low prices.
Or for a more up-market product for classic dungeon crawl games, but still reasonably-priced, look at Otherworld Miniatures.

I had a delivery today from Reaper Bones and am quite happy.
Incidentally, how do you upload pictures to the forum?30/01/2015 at 12:20 #1652230/01/2015 at 14:14 #16526
Ah, I saw that but don’t have images saved on the Interweb, unless they can be shared from FaceBook albums?05/02/2015 at 18:16 #16925

Sorry I meant to reply.
Yes, but you will need to get the images URL, which can be done IIRC by clicking on the image, depends on what browser you use as to do this though.
Any problems drop me a line.
