Help with rare miniatures
« on: July 21, 2020, 05:38:31 AM »
Hi everyone! Figured this would be a good place to get some help from fellow enthusiasts ;D

I'm trying to figure out which Excelsior-made Warzone miniatures were actually released and which never made it into production. I've used archived versions of the Exclesior website as well as fanzines and old product lists. Here are three lists I've put together - miniatures I know were released, miniatures I am unsure of, and miniatures that were never released. I mostly need help with the list of miniatures I'm unsure of, but if you know of any errors in the other lists, please let me know as well. Maybe you know the product code of some of the products that I couldn't find? Any help would be greatly appreciated and pictures of some of the rare stuff would be awesome! I also have a fourth bonus lists of Target miniatures that I am also unsure of. Cheers!

List #1: Confirmed releases

EXE-SD00001 SD- Valpurgius 2004?

Ral Partha Europe was selling the diorama.

I have a bunch of the old Mutant Chronicles RPG miniatures.  Perhaps they reused some of the old sculpts from the doomtrooper packs.

Oh, do you mean that they created the diorama? Or resold it later, after Target's reconstruction?

In Fictional Reality #10 a recast of a Pretorian Stalker was featured, so I guess maybe they had access to the at least some of the molds for the old RPG line sculpted in 92-94?

Here are links to the original sculpts for the Mutant Chronicles RPOG miniatures.

Looks like RPE doesnt have the diorama anymore.
