That's from a board game, Fantasy Warriors, from the 1990s, from Grenadier.
There were a lot of Orcs with bows and spears and Dwarfs and it was Warhammer Very Light or BattleMasters Light.

In case you're wandering, yes, the size of the figure itself and the base fit HQ very well.

Aw, man, that's awesome! Thank you! So quick!

After a little research it looks like this game was basically just dwarves and orcs. And while they're all the right size, the orcs don't quite have the same Oldhammer look as the HQ ones, though I think the archers probably work best because of that hood. The weird plug in the back is strange, but can probably be removed fairly easily.

If anyone's interested, it looks like you can buy large numbers of all the Fantasy Warrior miniature types from here: http://www.em4miniatures.com/acatalog/C ... ntasy.html

Who else has some mystery minis they'd like to post?

Yeah, the Orc Archers' hoods have them look quite similar to the 4th/5th edition Warhammer/Warhammer Quest plastic Orc archers.
In regards to the plug, if you wanna use them, get yourself some Warhammer Orc or Goblin shields to glue them there, et voilà...

I found these bad boys in my parents attic. They've been up there at least 25 years. I've no idea what they are or where I got them, but the detail is excellent.

The one is HQ's Barbarian.

The other two look like Ral Partha cyclops miniatures (googled it). You can't get them anymore unless you want to spend a pretty penny.

One is a cleric and the other is a Hobgoblin. That's all I know.
