Mystery Norseman & Friends

Who is this masked man?


Do you know this man?

Has this man been seen in a model collection you are familiar with?

He is quite old (although he has all his hair - which he doesn't dye, honest)

The startled look of a man who doesn't remember where he came from


Please help them find their identities!

I have had these warriors in my collection for a long, long time, probably at least 25 years but possibly closer 30.

I bought them painted, at the Claymore show in Edinburgh in Nineteen Oatcake.

They have made a few Saga appearances, and my mate Alan, being even older in the tooth than I am, was asking who made them but I have no idea which manufacturer produced them. 


So my friends can you help?

  4. I would think that one of the guys in the painting/gaming community would know who these are. Have you thought about posting the question on the TMP?

    1. Thanks Anne. I have done that and a couple of the guys there have suggested that they were made by a company called Asgard Miniatures which would date them to the very early 1980's .

      That also means that they are long out of production as Asgard went bust many years ago :-(

  5. General concensus was Asgard and a nice guy from TMP, Roy, has kindly agreed to send a few up to me to satisfy my figure nostalgia.
    Cheers All.
