There are some great classics from the early days of Warhammer. The key thing is to aim purchases during the era of Heroquest 1990-2000, as many of GWs sculptors maintained a similar style guide.

Some quick examples, Wood Elf Glade Guard, Wardancers, and potentialy the Empire Swrodmaster from Hasslefree Miniatures.

Key elements are simple lines, clean distinct gear and iconic forms.

Marauder Miniatures and their sculptors also put out some great models which followed the simple styles of Heroquest. :)

I looked for marauder minis.
Found some wikis and archives of catalogs.
But no site selling collections/figures.

Looked at Hassle Free.
Great stuff!
Though shipping costs from EU are gonna kill me so no go.

*side note:
I've never seen sculpts of so many anatomically correct naked men. LOL

The nudes are so you can use Green Stuff to sculpt your own clothing, armour, and maybe hair. Sadly, I'm not that good at it.

The twisting catacombs models:
are a little bit too big.
have difficult glue interfaces.
But look freaking awesome and have the highest possible quality.

Here is the female dwarf between some heroquest models.

It's a great model but just too tall for a Dwarf. Almost the height of the chaos warrior! Otherwise it would be in my collection.

Lovely paint jobs by the way.

She is bigger than the original dwarf, but smaller than the barbarian or the Chaos Warrior. She is very much compatible with the game. :D

She is also in a better proportion to virtually all the models on the market today.
HQ models are too small and less compatible among anything but other old models.
As her pose is modern and dynamic, her style also targets a more modern market.

To me, finding minis to fit with HeroQuest models is more difficult and more expensive than replacing everything with modern.
Seb does it right, however... http://forum.yeoldeinn.com/viewtopic.php?t=1097
One of my hypothetical future projects would be to build a set of HQ minis with old Marauder/Citadel, plastic board game, and Otherworld minis and everything that fits that particular style.
As of now, I hate mixing both looks.

Just reading this now, thanks to the spam message above (hope it will be deleted soon and none of you will click on the link).
I don't think the HQ Dwraf is a bad sculpt at all, but I agree he has very different proportions even with other Citadel Dwarves. He has almost no legs and his feet are way bigger than others.
Anyway I hated his pose for many years when I was young because he is the only one Hero that seems relaxed and not ready to engage a combat! :D
