    Default Anyone do original AD&D style miniatures (orcs + others)?

    I'm looking for a miniature company that does original AD&D style orcs. (They're typically represented as a lot more pig-like than "modern" orcs). Failing that, any other company that does 28mm scale orcs that are not in the typical "Warhammer/WoW" style cartoon orcs?

    Also any company that does AD&D suitable miniatures in general I'd be interested in checking.

    Suggestions appreciated.

    3 companies come in my mind:
    - Ral Partha (they did a lot of official ADnD minis in the 80-s and 90-s, no idea if they are still active or not)
    - Reaper (they have quite a few minis that are great for ADnD)
    - Dark Sword Miniatures (they look super, mostly for RPG players to have a good looking mini representing their character, not many monsters/enemies)
    Forgot, that it works again.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately it doesn't seem that any of them do the original style orcs that I'm looking for. The Reaper ones were probably the best and least cartoonish anyway.

    I'm familiar with Dark Sword, they do great models, however we use HeroForge to create the player characters. They turn out surprisingly well if you order premium plastic, but it would be far too expensive to make a bunches of monsters

    Have you looked at Red-box-games? I know that Tre had done some Orcs in the past just don't remember what they looked like

    Consider making friends with someone who has a 3D printer, it might be more cost effective to purchase an STL file and bulk print.

    I just googled it ... I love the the minis, but there are no orcs available. The goblins look fantastic though.

    Try contacting Tre (the owner), I know he had some previously so there is a chance he might still have some old stock
