That standard thing with the red moon on it looks like it's supposed to be a piece of pipe?

It has a sculpted wood-grain on it, but is so small you could really paint it as you like ^_^

They're highlighted to scorpion green, the camera has washed quite a lot of the colour out of that photo.

My husband has several duck minis that we are trying to find out origins of. He got them when someone left a box of minis in the game store he used to own many years ago. 2 are very obviously Howard the Duck, but the others, while they look very similar, seem to be different characters, and 2 of them have different cast bases, with the initials "MM" and dates in the 1970's. There are 8 minis total, and 5 have been painted, including the Howard the Duck ones. Thoughts?

Those are probably Martian Metals. If you look on the Lost Minis Wiki under the name they will in the Runequest section. Can't post a link as on old iPod :evil:

The others could be Archive minis although not under their Runequest range...........

Wow! Thank you! You are correct, and all the ones we have are either from the Dungeon Adventures [we have 2 Barbarian Ducks (both painted), 2 Amazon Ducks (both painted), an E'corcist Duck (painted), and a Sinbad the Duck (unpainted)], or the Martian Metals (the photo of the 2 minis side-by-side). Very cool! Thinking of selling them, but it's hard to know what they are worth... But being rare, it's sorta tempting to keep them as well! Oh, decisions!

I can't remember if I've posted this here already, but anyway, I painted this for a mate a while ago:

While I'm at it, here's some snotlings I cobbled together
