The Citadel AD&D Miniatures Range



Alan & Michael Perry







These figures were part of a batch of new blister packs released in late 1986 and early 1987, a few months before Citadel lost the licence. It's surely no coincidence that they hit the market at the same time as the 'F3 Barbarians' range, also designed by the Perrys. This tactic was used with other blisters, including ADD32 Dwarf Villagers (Trish Morrison's D6 Dwarf Villagers), ADD24 Lords of Battle (F2 Lords of Battle), ADD40 Men-at-Arms (F4 Men-at-Arms) and ADD41 Lawful Fighters (F2 Paladins, the ADD41 figures even have 'Paladin' marked on the slotta-tab).
Unsurprisingly, many AD&D fans felt somewhat cheated by these releases, and it was no surprise that the writing was on the wall for the ADD range!
The pack of 3 Barbarians on foot replaced the previous ADD21 Barbarian Adventure Pack. Although it was always listed as 'ADD21, Barbarians', I use the code ADD21a to differentiate between the 2 sets. ADD21a consisted of a trio of Barbarian characters, one with a two-handed sword, one with a two-handed battleaxe, and another armed with handaxe and shield. There appears to have been 5 variants of each of the 3 poses, with the only variations being head detail and facial features.
