Runequest Duck Adventurer
This limited edition Runequest duck adventurer was given away via a mail-in voucher with RuneQuest box sets around 1982.
“The Durulz are bipedal creatures resembling the common duck, an association that often raises their short temper.”
Nelkark is a Rune Lord, or Death Drake of Humakt.
Sworn enemy of those who raise the undead and creatures who exist after death. Although the sword is the symbol of Hamukt, Nelkark wields an axe in battle; it’s razor sharp blade and size better suited to his frame and the task of dispatching the once-living.
Painted by Roy Scorer
This halberd wielding chap was a free gift, available if you spent £5 or more During October 1982. Advertised on the October 1982 Releases Flyer, along with Fergus The Psychotic Troll. This is a Ral Partha piece – as can be seen on the base, but has been converted by the talented Tom Meier who was working for Citadel at the time.
The fabulous miniature that is Thorgrimm was available through a mail in voucher in the first edition of Warhammer. He was also the Dwarf Chieftain in the 1st Edition Warhammer scenario ‘Ziggurat Of Doom’. Wearing a coat of shining mithril and wielding the fearsome magical Warhammer ‘Foebane’
Gyokurinti The Strangler
This amazing figure was produced as part of the C36 range to go with the Warhammer 2nd Edition Book of Battalions. Gyokurinti was the leader of the Hobgoblins.
The front of the solid base says “Gyokurinti”. Although not a limited edition, he gets to be in this gallery as he is specifically named – and he is one of my favorites! I mean, what young boy in the ’80s wouldn’t fall in love with a hob carrying some severed heads!!
