My apologies for the lack of posts today; I was busy with real world chores, like cleaning my basement and sorting through books and games I really ought to get rid of. Anyway, I also spent some time going through the issues of The Strategic Review and pre-AD&D issues of The Dragon (more on that later). Anyway, in issue 11, from December 1977, I came across an ad for a series of miniatures based on the demons featured in Supplement IV to OD&D by a company called Miniature Figurines Ltd. I'd never heard of this company [Correction: Fool that I am, I somehow didn't connect "Miniature Figurines Ltd" and "Minifigs," a company I have heard of] and I certainly don't recall ever seeing this miniatures:
Has anyone out there ever seen these? Were they ever in fact produced?
What's particularly interesting to me is that, based on the image above, they would appear to be OD&D miniatures, using Dave Sutherland's art from Eldritch Wizardry as models, right down to the fact that the Type IV demon has no wings. It's interesting too, because this issue of Dragon is the last "pure" OD&D one, insofar as the first volume of AD&D, the Monster Manual was released in the same month, even though, as others have surmised, the MM seems to follow OD&D's rules more closely than it does AD&D's.
