Talisman (1st & 2nd Edition)

The first edition of Talisman was released at Games Day in 1983, the second edition added colour and was released in 1985. Several expansions followed between Talisman Expansion in 1985 and Talisman Dragons in 1993. In 1986 Citadel released miniatures to replace the counters enclosed in the game.

The numbering of these sets varied across the years, being presented in individual blisters, multiple figure blisters with at least two numbering schemes and also in blister boxes that matched the Talisman sets. To see a picture of any of the miniatures look at either the Timescape Miniatures sheet or the blister box contents.
