Dragontooth 25mm Lead Miniatures

I was looking through an old Dragon the other day and saw Dragontooth's ad for their giant (pictured above). It made me curious to see the rest of their line - I found another couple of ads (below) and then Dave's Yahoo group with its great collection of catalogs and pictures. The LGS never had any of these when I was a kid...I think I would recognize and remember the blister pack. I get a sense that they're pretty uncommon (I couldn't find any on eBay). A lot of the designs are kind of trippy. Dig this giantess Big Meg for example. There's a lot of photos here too - apparently they put out some decent pig faced orcs.

That giant mini was very inspirational to me. Years later when I wrote up a giant for GURPS 4e, I carefully calculated the giant's strength to ensure that it could lift - and throw - a cow.

Cool walk down memory lane!

Yep. Big Meg scared the hell out of me but I did get me some of the elephant headed demons in the day. A minis company that knew the importance of dungeon props, too!

I remember those ads well.

I still have a few of those, including Cumulus the Storm Giant, which is titanic.

I wish I had purchased at least one DT mini back when I used to read those same ads in Dragon. The giants, in particular, are miniatures I would love to add to my collection. Not gonna happen anytime soon, but hey, you never know...

DT have a certain something that fires my imagination. I've picked up lots over the years - they never came over to the UK to any degree (Asgard initially imported some early smaller pieces) so I only discovered them about 8 years ago or so. My Yahoo Group is a quiet one but anyone is welcome to join and share memories - I would love to hear anything about the gold plated giftware.

I finally managed to pick up a couple of the gold plated DT pieces - pics on the blog;

Sadly He came down with pancreatic cancer after working clearing The Pile at Ground Zero post 9/11.
He was working on new Illustrations, just amazing work, right til the end.
