The blue ones on hex bases are from Dragon Quest,
the ones on the small round bases are from Dungeon Quest, both board games from the 80s.

Cool. Thank you.
Now i just need the info on the green one with the square base. And the grey minotaur.

Edit:
The blue ones are from Dungeonquest.
the purple one is from The New Dungeon! Re-release from 1989.
But those other red ones with round bases don't match any images i can find from Dungeonquest or Dragonquest.

Still looking.

The purple guy with the axe is a Ral Partha cast from TSRs "Dungeon!" 1989. I have used the same mini in the past for Sir Ragnar.

I'm pretty sure that the Grey Minotaur is from Warhammer Quest. I have that model myself, although I grabbed it at a table-top sale, and I don't actually own WQ.

That minotaur was also in the 3rd edition Talisman game.

I don't own the WQ Minotaur, but I've seen a lot of pics of it online and almost bought it several times. I think that's absolutely what it is.

Close up for the actual pic of the minotaur. Since his not really in the other pic.

Looks like that's definitely what it is. Thanks.

It's a nice model and paints up well. Crucially, stylistically it matches up really well with Heroquest models (except for the silly base). The later Warhammer Minotaurs were better models perhaps, but don't suit HQ so well in my opinion.

They are pretty awesome. One of these days I'm gonna buy a few of them and just put them on some new Zealot rectangular bases that better fit HQ.
