Need help identifying a bunch of miniatures

Hi guys,
I was given a bunch of old miniatures - mostly preslotta era - that I am having trouble identifying. Some I know are Citadel and can identify easily enough. Some are Grenadier, some may be Citadel but I am not sure, others I have no idea what so ever! I am hoping that the knowledgeable folk on her can clear up some of the mysteries for me. (I have posted this on my blog as well so feel free to answer in whichever forum suits you best)

Lets get on with it then.

1: Citadel Beastman number 3 (Kiss of Death) http://solegends.com/citcat1988/0207rocbeast-01.htm
Image

2: Citadel beastman (Wolfman?) http://www.solegends.com/citcat1984comp ... 034-01.htm
Image

3 : Grenadier Lizard men (Fantasy Lords blister #28?)
Image

4: Citadel Chaos Broo! http://www.solegends.com/citcomp1/citcomp1040-01.htm
Image

5: Appears to be an Orc, company unknown.

Image

17: Citadel orcs mainly Haroths troopers it would seem http://solegends.com/citcat1985agmata/agmatcat09-02.htm
Image

18: Citadel Orcs from the 1988 catalogue: http://solegends.com/citcat1988/0501orcs-01.htm and http://solegends.com/citcat1988/0502orcs-01.htm

21: Orc Villager number 5 http://solegends.com/citcat1988/0508orcs-01.htm
Image

22: Grenadier Orc riding a dinosaur/wyvern/cold one?

So that's the lot of them. I eagerly look forward to working out what a lot of these guys are, that's half the fun of this Oldhammer gig after all :) Please let me know which miniatures you are able to identify.

Re: Need help identifying a bunch of miniatures

In no particular order (ok backwards)
#21 is an Orc Villager
#18 are orcs from 1st & 2nd page of the orcs in the 1988 catalogue
#17 are preslotta Citadel orcs mainly Haroths troopers it would seem (nice find them)
#16 is a Grenadier wolf rider
#13 is a citadel orc - possibly a champion
#10 ditto

some of the rest are familiar but I'm tired

The plastic orcs are from the "Fantasy Warriors" range:

No 16 0 Chronicle Wolf rider - nice - I'm after some of these 8-)

No 19 - Chronicle Black Orcs? Look like Nick Lund sculpts.

Is No 4 one of the old Broo minis?

Re: Need help identifying a bunch of miniatures

Yes, the only one I spotted straight away!

4 Chaos Broo! http://www.solegends.com/citcomp1/citcomp1040-01.htm Top row 3rd from left

I think there's a large Tony Ackland drawing of him in Ravening Hordes. And maybe one of the Claws of Malal in Chaos Marauders. But I might be getting muddled.

Re: Need help identifying a bunch of miniatures

I had never even heard of Broo before this. Are they a type of Chaos Beastmen used in RuneQuest?

Re: Need help identifying a bunch of miniatures

Its more chaos beastmen are a type of Broo used in warhammer.

Nasty creatures Broo, don't go near them when they are in rut is all I can say.

Re: Need help identifying a bunch of miniatures

Pretty much got almost all of the miniatures identified now, only the following remain:
#22 (it is Grenadier but I can't find out more than that)
#15 No real idea on these guys, just an assumption they are Grenadier
#5 No idea
Next
