Miniatures Monday

For this week's Miniatures Monday we hop into the wayback machines to a lead Citadel pre-slotta orc.  I always loved this guy's skull shield.  I got this as part of an order my friends and I made from the 1985 Ral Partha Catalog.  I has sent away for the catalog from an add in a copy of Dragon Magazine, and Ral Partha handled some catalog orders for Citadel in the U.S. back in those days.  Many people these days are to young to remember ordering from a catalog by mailing an order sheet in and waiting 6-8 weeks for delivery, but wait we did, and it was worth it.  Ahh the memories!  In any case, after 31 years, I finally got around to painting him. :-)

And here is an image of that wondrous catalog.  It opened up a whole new world of miniatures that had otherwise been unavailable to those of us living in rural southwestern Pennsylvania back in those days.
