Metal Magic 1992 calendar (pic hvy)

Here are the high res scans of the pics from the 1992 calendar, as discussed in optimus' thread:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2520

Many thanks to optimus for making me aware of this calendar, and to Viruz (of http://www.metalmagic.de fame) for providing the scans! Click the pics to see bigger versions.

Those are great!

Does anyone know what happened to the metal magic orc molds? I think mega minis used to sell them, but where are they now?

This has just made me want to go and buy a whole bunch of Metal Magic figures - their catalogues did not do these figures justice!

Anyone know where the ranges are all these days?

The orc molds are with Midlam Minis (listed as goblins, if I don't remember wrongly).

Johnny (of Mega Minis) has a list of which molds he have sold and to whom:
http://megaminis.com

Those are not only Metal Magic stuff though, but all sorts of things. =)

The main purveyors of old Metal Magic nowadays are:
Midlam Miniatures - http://www.midlamminiatures.co.uk
Armorcast - http://armorcast.com
Turnkey - http://www.turnkeyminiatures.com

There are plenty of others, and I hope to make an update to the Lost Minis Wiki to cross reference the codes to those who are still in production.

Stunning stuff! I know nothing of Metal magic figures....but these are just amazing and remind me very much of the excellent dioramas from the citadel journal c1987 that pulled me into Warhammer back in the day.

thanks to all who made these pictures happen!

Cheers,

Most of the dioramas are by Michael Immig, who also did a bunch of dioramas and nutty conversions displayed in WD. Recognize the style of the cover of WD#100? =)

I remember him posting a few threads on LAF a few years ago with new pics of his old creations, a bit like Steve Blunt did on his fantastic blog:

Pure gold! I especially love the winter sci fi-meets-fantasy diorama. :)
