Snotlings - Image in KK
Skaven - White Dwarf/AHQ
Trolls - White Dwarf
Vampires - HQ2LoS
Beholders - HQ2LoS
Continent <name> from JP HQ
Mentor is the white bearded wizard - Marvel Winter Special
Morcar is a Dr Doom-esque wizard - Marvel Winter Special
Mentor is a friendly elf like wizard - Sticker Album
Old World Warhammer map - RotLK/Sticker Album

What am I missing?

if either Mentor is iffy, then I'd include the red-robed Morcar from the Merlin Sticker Album as well. The Marvel Winter Special also has a Chaos Dwarf as Morcar's dungeon keeper.

Rat Ogres (sort of Skaven) and a Trollslayer as a Hero are also from WD.

Cabiri are found in Running the Gauntlet from The Screaming Spectre.

I love this thread. Thanks for reviving it! KKs Care Bears post is the best!

I still say if Stephen Baker was not directly involved, it is not canon. And if mercinaries were his idea (the EU quest packs) then the real Stephen Baker was abducted by aliens and he is now dead to me!
