1977......Asgard Miniatures Science Fiction


Back in 1976, Bryan Ansell, the brain behind Conquest Miniatures, Tabletop Miniatures, Citadel Miniatures, (a lot of) Games Workshop, Guernsey Foundry, Wargames Foundry etc etc etc.......formed Asgard Miniatures. It was set up in the miniatures capital of the universe; Nottingham, England......In 1977 or thereabouts they released a Science Fiction range of which I have been picking pieces up over the years. Any gaps in the pictures here means I need them.....please.....

Most of the figures here are in the later Tabletop shiny metal as opposed to the nicer greying lead of classic Asgard.....

Love you Asgard SF collection. I am green of envy :)

Hi, I have 6 orts with sonic guns.

I could trade one of them for a Trimote overlord or officer if you have any duplicates. Interested?

Cheers/Hans
