Nothing to do with the asshole thing(which was gross and that I am glad you reposted btw), but seeing that pic and your signature on the same post made me think of that:

You can't do that to the War Room!

it appears to be "games workshop" now ...

I'm kinda interested because my youngest son spent about five thousand (of my) dollars on the pewter figures in the early 80s ...
they're all in a trunk out in the barn, and I've been wondering if they are worth anything ...

Assuming they're not all bent out of shape with all finer details smeared I'm sure you could move them on quite easily.

Are the painted?

Early 80s? Pewter not lead?

In the 80s they were some kind of lead mix, incrementally turning to plastic over time. Pewter was the reserve of the souvenir market.

Certain miniatures of a certain age suffer from lead-rot, due to the cheap lead mix they used for a time during the 80s. Scabby looking and rather toxic.

Assuming they're not rotted, in decent condition and you strip any paint off, you'll have no problem shifting them. And depending on what you have (There's a very rare Giant that always goes for stupid on ebay) it might go rather well :)

(Some models are cast in pewter, mostly the metal ones are "white metal" these days. Different mix, less lead. IIRC

I know there's a couple of these in there .... mounting a big gun like that on a Vincent sidecar sounded like a good idea ....

I guess they are lead of some type, instead of pewter .... I haven't looked in that trunk in a long, long time, but I recall all the
stuff being in very good condition, and probably three hundred or so were painted, maybe another 100 not painted and a sack
of new ones still in the packaging ... some plastic model tanks, too, but this game they played wasn't the "open table" thing,
there were interconnecting board pieces, supposed to be a big spaceship infested with the HR Giger aliens .... a few of those
were metal, but the big piles of them were plastic ... four arms or claws or something ...

anyway, when all those Warhammer40K books started showing up, I thought, huh, I'm vaguely familiar with what this bullshit is ....

and yeah, I indulged the youngest more than the other two ... still do ... he doesn't piss me off as much ...

I was in a mall a few years ago and wandered into a toy shop and saw they were still selling the game stuff ... but they were all plastic ...
between that, and all the fanboy books, I've gotten to wondering if there is serious collector value to that trunk ...

I'll get one of the mexicans to drag it out one of these days and take some pictures ... try to identify what it all is .....

There were a bunch of sky-bikes like this, too, only different ...
Image

this one, too ... I remember the bikes because I dug the machine guns under the fenders ...
Image



okay now, I for damn sure know this one is there .... so what would a collector's price be on it ?
Image



I doubt if I have the patience to try to ID all the individual pieces and ebay them one at a time ....
but I also doubt I'd find a buyer for the whole lot at a fair price ... or could I ?
