mantic figures possibly, i know they come with bases like that

Are they GW or generic?

alot of non slotta metal models come with a metal base, some companies have a circular one so might have been to help base those models

They aren't mantic. The central depression is the wrong size (I've actually got both these bases and mantic ones, and mantic use a larger circle indent.)
They're for a range called "Space Lords" by a German company called Hobby Products.
Currently available through moonraker models.

The two bottom left are GW styled ones (but GW weren't the only maker of slottabases even going back to the 90s.

thanks Chromedog.

I actually have a giant stock pile of those Space lords in a box. The bases must have got separated at some point.. smile.gif

Doug @ eM-4 has the moulds for those figures now, and is slowly resurrecting them (I've got a pile of the yoyodyne Shigaru and cybertech bunkerbusters (heavy armoured guys) and the wartech guys.)

Whoa!
That's more than I have and I don't need to add to that pile ...

I scored mine when Tin Soldier in Sydney were having a moving sale. One day I might pull them out of their case again and use them.
