Hence, I am quite unfamiliar with ranges from the seventies. However, I have started to develop a certain fondness for old wargaming figures, and although I am not a hardcore collector, I try to pick up some figures here and there when another veteran wargamer sells off some of his stock.
This week I came into the possession of a couple of scifi and fantasy Minifigs, thanks to fellow veteran wargamer Wim VDB. I do not think I ever owned Minifigs before, although I am aware of the legendary status of this brand. So, I am quite happy that now I do have some old charming Minifigs in my growing collection of old-fashioned wargaming figures.
For identification, I turned to the excellent Lostminiswiki. Not all acquired minis are shown in the pictures below.
|Some unopened packs! In this case, figures from the range Aurelea Rococo,|
Knights of the Silver Rose.
|Science fiction figures. A selection the Central Galactic Force, Samain, and Zarquin.|
|Some figures from the renowned Valley of the Four Winds range.|
This range was really exceptional, in the sense that it captured a Breughel-like fantasy world.
