Asgard Miniatures FG5 .. wanted

         I am currently trying to locate the very first miniature I bought way back in the early 1980's, the Asgard Miniatures FG5 Giant Orc in plate armour. Now this cost me the princely sum of 30p  and the figure came with a separate spear or axe, not the sword a shown. I never threw my figure out, it was lovingly painted in Humbrol enamels - black armour with a green face, and a hand painted 5 pointed star on the shield but somehow it has gone missing.
Asgard miniatures was taken over by Tabletop Games in Nottingham and at some time the moulds were sold on. Some moulds went to Alternative Armies and Gavin Symes doesn't have this figure in his stock. Some moulds went to Viking Forge in Virginia USA but Lorn doesn't have the moulds either.
My daily Asgard miniatures and preslotta worldwide searches on Ebay haven't yielded one yet.
Bryan Ansell was asked on my behalf at the recent BOYL weekend but he can't remember the figure.
I posted on the LAF( Lead Adventuer Forum) but although some people remember it and some have even owned one in the past they have all gone to other homes.
I was wondering if anyone in the blog-o-sphere has one or knows of one for sale.
Many thanks.


  1. Best of luck with the hunt Phil, do let us know how you get on.

  2. Best of luck he does look cool. Wish they were 30p these days!
