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!

Pardon the threadomacy.

Was there ever any progress with the development of a timeline in our alternate Old World timeline? I'm specifically thinking in terms of chronology and identifying anchor points in the narrative to establish when particular events take place.

This certainly depends on the order the expansions are played, but I'm primarily interested in the main game and official boxed expansions, less-so the Marvel Winter Special (I love me some Chaos Dwarfs though!), White Dwarf Quests, etc.
