Here is a link to the barbarian set they have for sale: https://www.wargamesfoundry.com/collect ... hop-models
Be sue to check the WA007 and WA008 sets.
Also they are offering Christmas discounts!

And below there is a comparison pic.
I just put the HQ barbarian on a tile because his base is thinner than the standard slotta base (my barbarian is the old version, taken from Dungeonquest), but the WF models are now released with a rounded metal base but you can use a tool to remove it and file it because it is very thin and then attach the figure on a HQ-style base.

Man, I wish those guys were available in plastic.

Agreed, but I'm an old soul as my girlfriend says. I still like the old metal miniatures.

Yes it does, almost a perfect size comparison. j_dean has some filling in to do under the feet but that figure works.

A long time ago I asked here about 3D printer models. I remembered this today and took a look on Thingverse. Wow, there is a lot of Hero Quest models there to print. Do you know other places that has too? I want expansions' minis but they are too expensive in this days...

Some where around here a member made a bunch of 3D scans of figures that you could download the scan files. However I can't seems to find it at the moment. I'll do some more looking and get back to you.

Found it, the scans aren't great but here they are.

I already sent a pm to the people that showed interest in the figure, others feel free to pm me.
I also have custom figures for Mentor and a chained Sir Manfred.
Actually I have:
11 Witch Lord (require assembling/glue)
3 Sir Manfred
4 Mentor (require assembling/glue)

You can see a sample pic below (I will update it with a better photo soon);
All the miniatures are unpainted:

Hi Lestodante! I saw you created some brand new miniatures for Sir Manfred and the Witch Lord. They are awesome! Simply wonderful... Do you sell them? Or where I can buy them?

Hi... no I didn't "create" them, they are sculpted by two italian artists:
Mentor and Sir Manfred were sculpted by Marco Partenzi while the Witch Lord was sculpted by Fabio Rizzo.
But I personally commissioned the Witch Lord to Fabio while Marco produced the other two on his own. I just had several of them because to start the (limited) production they required a minimum number order so I contributed to reach that number by ordering a lot. Anyway they are all gone now, I just have 1 of each type for myself.
I will try to contact the the authors to ask if they can make more copies and let you know.
