due to retirement. This time it's Otherworld Miniatures. They used to be available at HMGS cons but I haven't seen them in years.

Maybe their claim to fame was the pig-faced orcs – but their fantasy range overall is very good if you like classic D&D. From their site in the Gallery are some terrific models like these bugbears:

and some orcs:

They had dome great undead models too.

Note that:

As for the Otherworld Miniatures range, it will live on in the hands of several different new owners. The majority of the range has found new homes already, and I'll be looking for new owners for the rest of the models over the next few months.

Also note there have been two companies with this name. The one in New Zealand closed years ago. It is also not the same as Otherworld Creations, which publishes RPG products.

A very good innings. Kudos to Richard for developing such a huge range of old school D&D figures. Happy to see that he's found new homes for many of the figures.

So many closing. Could this be the end of the golden age?

Otherworld is having a close-out sale, too:

A shame as I had a large number of figures in the line (I stopped buying because…no one in my D&D group really cared, preferring prepainted plastic). Glad to see that the range will continue under different owners.

Always wanted some of their pig face orcs, but the price was just to great. Nobody could afford their miniatures, even though they looked great.
