And Speaking of Wizards with (ahem!) "Magic Wands"...

Here is Boredflak from the Finieous Phigures set. I love that he isn't just carrying a machine gun, but a bazooka as well!



(Finieous Fingers was a terrific comic that ran in the early issues of Dragon magazine. In 1982 Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures produced a set of 8 figures based on the comic.)


And here's a mystery wizard toting what looks like a Schmeisser.



**Update: Mystery wizard identified. This is actually a Citadel limited edition piece "LE7 - Wizard with a Sub-Machine Gun". Thanks to datawrangler for pointing me in the right direction.

You can see a painted figure >here< and a list of Citadel limited editions >here<.


The Finieous Phigures set would get its own post, but someone's already done that. You can check out all the figures >here<.

Isn't that a Citadel figure? Or maybe Games Workshop?

You're right! It is a Citadel figure.
Thanks! (Post updated)

Silly me - Citadel *is* Games Workshop's miniatures line. :)

These pictures look like you have gold plated versions of the figures. I seem to remember those being offered for the Phineas figures, but not the Citadel.

Or is it just the lighting?

BTW, I was remembering the Citadel "WF" (Weird Fantasy) line, not the "LE" (Limited Edition) line. But, close enough for you to track it down!

Its just the lighting. I wish I had a gold plated Finieous set. I couldn't find the listing but supposedly one got sold for more than $500 on Ebay.

I know that seems outrageous, but I participated in an Ebay action for a gold plated "Ral" figure. (That's the figure of an ordinary human with a lead ladle.) I maxed out at $40 - it sold for over $150!

I have that one!

A reminder of more civilized times...

I don't remember ever seeing these. Awesome!
