The Galloway Memorial Home for Wayward and Convalescent Lead Figures

My two 4e books are in the mail, and I expect to receive the first shipment of Wayward and Convalescent Figures from the hardest workin’ man in the OSR, Scottsz. I think he’s planning to give my books a viking funeral or something. But his minis, mainly Grenadier figures, will be getting a nice Simple Green bath and a fresh coat of paint so they can get back to killing and being killed by adventurers like God intended. Excuse me while do my happy dance.

But seriously. If you know of any minis old lead D&D type minis that are languishing somewhere in box or drawer, neglected because they are broken, covered in thick coating of gunky paint, or pygmied by scale creep, drop me a line. The Galloway Memorial Home is here.

The Galloway Memorial Home for Wayward and Convalescent Lead Figures was established in memory of Bruce Roderick Galloway, 1952-1984, editor/compiler of Fantasy Wargaming.

  1. my brother and i have accumulated a bunch of old minis from various manufacturers; most indeed seem too small by today’s increased scale standard – most minis today seem to be nearly 30mm don’t they, compared to what they used to be (a “true” 25mm).

    they are probably in various states of quality but are lying in a box back at our parents’ house; drop me an email if you’d like them. (coincidentally, i myself am currently languishing in the USA as well)

  2. If any 15mm figures end up in your grip by some odd chance, I would be happy to take them off your hands and give them a similarly good, and used in play, home.

    • In fact, I have a few 15mm romans I’ll never use — and it’s a good story. I dragged my brother into a DBA tounament one year at Origins and while I did pretty poorly (losing 3/4 or something) he won them (2nd or 3rd prize). Bastard.
      I’ll send you an email later to get your address.

  3. Check your email, chief.

    I just made your weekend!

  4. By the way, I would vote for J. Smith over at U.G. for the title of ‘Hardest Working Man in the OSR’… doing a regular news post is work with all these blogs to cover…

  5. Mr. B,

    I have some 15mm fantasy figures that I won’t use. They’re individually based on metal washers and some are painted. I got a (blurry) scan of some of them here:

    Email me and let me know if they’re useful.

  6. Scott and Mike,

    Most appreciated, definitely! Got the pics, Scott, and they would absolutely be helpful. Your generosity is awesome, and won’t be forgotten, if I can return the favor someday.

    • Mr. B,

      I’ll see if I can get a better pic and list of the ‘collection’ – I was originally going to rebuild a collection in 15mm but went with 10mm instead.

      I’ll email email over info later this week.

  7. I think I may have some old manuals and piles of fan fiction laying around here somewhere. I’ll have to rent a forklift and set aside a weekend to locate them.
