I discovered these guys a year or so back…
I can’t think of a good way to start this post … but I don’t need to, the image above should have sucked you in already. If you’re anything like me you will recognise it immediately! … and if you don’t recognise it you needs to learn some history Space Marine Boy!
It’s the idol from the original 1st edition AD&D Players Handbook, a truly iconic image of the gaming industry.
Otherworld Miniatures’s ranges are inspired by classic D&D and they make use of some very talented sculptors including Paul Muller, Kev Adams and John Pickford.
So if you like your D&D old style and still high quality this is the company for you.
The man behind it all is Richard Scott who is a devoted collector of the Citadel Licensed AD&D range and this is clearly a big influence on Otherworld’s miniatures, giving them a nostalgic quality although they are clearly modern sculpts. The prices are quite high, but (unlike with some companies I could mention) your paying for quality sculpts people have taken a lot of time and effort to produce
Anyway enough of me talking here’s the link and some pictures of a few of my favourites from the Otherworld ranges
^ A classic D&D style Troll
^ Fire Beetles
^ 2 Shriekers and a Violet Fungi
Also take a look at the Type 1 Demon, which would make for an awesome Lord of Change.

Fans of the old Citadel AD&D range will of course also want to droll over Richard Scott’s collection http://www.citadel-add-range.org.uk/
