Help me identify this old GW boxed set! 7 Years, 2 Months ago  
OK - when I first got back into gaming, after seeing DF on display my local gaming place, I needed minis to go with my new terrain.

I went to the gaming place for minis, but all they had was GW. At the time, I didn't know anything about GW or Warhammer or Reaper -- I had no idea that these were for a specific game, I just knew that I couldn't get the basic old-school D&D types I wanted, and that regular bases seemed to have been abandoned in favor of plastic bases in the years I'd been away.

When I told the guy at the store I wanted a wizard figure, the only thing he could show me was a boxed set of, like, 10 plastic GW mages. I think they were for Empire. It was either 5 or 10 -- probably 5 now that I think about it. Now, this was back in 1999, or thereabouts -- so we're talking a good eight years ago.

I'm 75% sure these were not the metal wizards that came both mounted and on foot -- these were all plastic, and there were no mounted versions of them.

What was this? Any links to pics of it? Am I delusionally misremembering -- was it just the regular Empire mages, both mounted and on foot? Did they ever release a multi-pack of them in one box? Small box, too.

I'd love to see what that was.

Thanks in advance!

Could it be the wizards from GW´s toy box range?

THAT'S IT!

Thanks so much for that link -- I remember all of these, even though it was the mages I'd really been thinking of lately.

It's intriguing that GW has distanced themselves from this. The big honkin GW catalogue doesn't have any of these, and I couldn't find anything like them on their website. Perhaps because these aren't tied to a particular faction? These look to be so old they were made before GW was all about Warhammer armies.

Interesting, interesting, interesting. Thanks again for this link!

I bought some of these last year to have as spare miniatures for Talisman 3 ed so they should be rather easy to get. I would guess that the miniatures are from 1990-1995 (and later they where sold in the toy box range).
