Hi folks,
I've been going through bags of old figures that have been cleared out of my old loft, from back in the day, late 1980s, and I cant place these figures, manufacturer, anything really!

They look like some kind of Bitume/Future Shock /Car wars type scenario game, and are about 25mm from bottom of base to tip of head, a bit of a mini figure. I bought them second hand about 25 years ago, so if theres anyone out there that can help, please get in touch!

Thanks Cris

I dunno, some look like Copplestone's Future Wars. The part painted guy in the left middle. Maybe not his current range but perhaps his Grenadier range. Also, the Girl third from left at the top.

I was confused by the similar style!

Just for future refferrence, The Copplestone sculpted Future Wars figs from grenadier had slotta bases and were closer to 28mm scale figs (sole to eye).

Most are currently available from EM4 or Merliton.

For reference, here is a page from WD with pictures and codes of the various Dark Future metal miniatures:

There were also some vehicles as part of the range:

The boxed vehicles were more copies of the plastic from the core box. I thought there were some metal bikes/trikes-with-riders, but not seeing same in those piccies.

I'll look around the house; now, old Battlecars figs would be interesting!

Aside, I assumed this was supposed to be for CMGs, though understand the focus on collectable miniatures. No contention?
