Mystery Miniature?
« on: October 16, 2020, 10:10:37 PM »
A friend of mine (who used to run a game store) was going through some boxes of old stock and randomly found this in a box of things that are decidedly NOT Colonial.  Does anyone recognize where this miniature came from/who makes it/etc?

Something about the face, hands and stance, makes him look a bit Copplestone-ish to me, but I donít recognise him. Not a bad looking figure though.

Thanks to all of you for the sleuthery - I at first thought it was Copplestone as well, but realized it was not.  Now I have to get my buddy to dig through other boxes of old stock to see what else he might have from London Warroom.
