Perhaps these Ral Partha catalog PDFs can help:

Boom, baby! At least half of my miniatures collection was acquired around '76 to '80 (my mom agreed to buy me a packet for each tooth I had to have pulled, which weirdly turned into 22 for orthodontic reasons that are Chthonic in their mind bending complexity). Anyway, at least 100 or so are of the little, lumpy, endearing Ral Partha lines of this vintage. Plus lots of Heritage and Grenadier that share many of the same qualities. My favorites were (and are) the Citadel line of Lord of the Rings miniatures - particularly the Uruk Hai that are the spitting image of Ralph Bakshi's orcs.
