Welcome to the new Bartertown.com!

Our new server is much faster, and we're very excited to hear what you think about the updates.

Server/Software Updates:
  • Operating System: - CentOS 5 to CentOS 7
  • phpBB - (forum software) 3.0.12 to 3.2.0
  • Server Hardware - We're now on an entirely new, dedicated server with twice the RAM and a Solid State Drive

Forum Changes:
  • RULES - Are now linked in the hotbar at the very top of the page, so they're easy to find. Also, you don't have any excuse for not reading them.
  • ITL Trade Ref System - Also located in the hotbar up top. If you don't see them immediately,
    check under the Quick Links menu.
  • GW products have been condensed by genre. No more vacant, empty sub-forums dedicated to specialist games - those now belong in the GW Fantasy and Futuristic categories. Read the descriptions if you aren't sure where to post.
  • Collapse-able Sections - An awesome extension of the updated board, you can now collapse the categories you don't care about to make the forum smaller.
  • Announcements - Like this one! Did you know we were going down for maintenance and we had updates scheduled? Now you'll definitely be in the loop on future things that impact the site.
All the awesomeness aside, there may be bugs or issues that crop up as we settle in. Please check/post here about issues or if you have questions.

Vintage Miniatures Help

Post by ChaosOrc » Tue Apr 11, 2017 3:45 pm

Does anyone happen to know what these two miniatures are? I found them in a bag containing old 1980's GW chaos items and I am trying to figure out if these are GW models or some other manufacturer. I could not locate any markings on them.

Those don't look like any style of GW minis I've seen as early as late 80's, think they're a different line since stuff before the period I'm familiar with aren't that clean sculpts.
True, we love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving. There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.

I expect honesty about models' conditions, thank you.

If I don't respond in a day or two, please check back, I've forgotten-sorry.

Your winged minotaur is almost certainly a balrog. Is there an image of the bottom of the base?
I am always in the market for weird and wonderful GW oddbitz and ephemera. PM me if you have something old/weird/rare.

No Finecast, please.
