If you remember these critters, I need not remind you what they are from, but for those of you unfamiliar with them let me give you heads up and some background.

Scant few images of this elusive line exist, so these are some of the best ones I could find, my apologies for posting them without proper attribution to the source, email me and I'll sort it!

These are Pure Evil Miniatures officially licensed Fighting Fantasy Miniatures. Back in the 80’s there existed a book series that ignited the imaginations of tons of young minds to the worlds of fantasy and adventure.

The source of inspiration, The cover of Deathtrap Dungeon!

No idea if these are on general release yet, but I’d love one for my collection! If you can point me in the direction of getting one of these, let me know, and I’ll get one, put it together and stick some paint on it so you can see it in it’s glory!
