Have You Seen Me?



A friend of mine had a whole army -- well, perhaps more of a squadron -- of orc minis when we were in second grade. I can't seem to find hide nor hair of them on the internets. Does anyone have a clue where they came from? I say they were orcs (because my friend painted white hand and lidless eye badges on their shields) but they may have officially been 'goblins', 'kobolds', or even miniatures not specifically for D&D. 
     The most memorable detail was their faces weren't pig-shaped but instead were more tiki-like (as I've tried to recall above). They were cool. Any ideas?

They were not Games Workshop orcs, I gather? Like this?

Hey Darius!

Nope, not them. Thanks, but these guys were pretty close to what I drew, shorties, about 2 heads tall. I maybe should've added that I was in second grade in 1975.

Was it the old Ruglud's armoured orcs?

The attached picture is of the metal miniatures. They had attachable plastic shields.

Blogger seems to keep chopping it off.

Thank you lads, but, no, still not the guys. I do appreciate the digging!

You should try posting this to enworld or to the wotc forums.
