Not exactly Pound Store Plastic Fantasy Warriors but a job lot picked up cheaply on EBay.
These figures are not to my knowledge usually sold in the UK so often have hefty shipping. There are multiple copies of each figure, which will allow flexible painting.
There are several female or androgynous figures in this set that might or might not qualify as Pound Store Plastic Warriors blog contribution for #FEMbruary.
#FEMbruary is the online painting challenge to find (and eventually paint) believable female gaming figures; some of these figures are almost heading down the “chain mail bikini fantasy” road, depending how much bare flesh you choose to paint. https://leadballoony.com/2019/01/31/more-scumbos-and-the-fembruary-challenge/
Size: average 50-54mm except the dwarf / troll mid 40mms
Maker: ? Plastic. Base marked P2162-P1 China
Identified by James at Quantrills Toy Soldiers blog as True Legends figures pictured here http://fantasytoysoldiers.blogspot.com/2014/09/toy-major-true-legends-mythical.html
I have six types of these generic fantasy figures, plus the picture explains where a spare dragon and two trees came from.
1. The Sorceress, Princess, Queen Enchantress with ice cream staff
2. The Screaming Sorceress Enchantress Crone with Club and Skull belt
3. The Hunky Male (or Female?) Archer
4. The Hunky Male Conan type Barbarian swordsman with flowing locks and armoured loincloth
5. The Angry Dwarf or Giant Troll depending on scale
6. The Slinky Female Warrior with double swords
A useful 50-54mm set, especially with some duplicates to paint up for different periods.
I can see these suiting Duelling games, Space games … another set for the painting table, but maybe not this #FEMbruary.
Any clue as to maker welcome.

I bought a number of sets. They are called True Legends. The female with two swords reminds me of Dark Elf wyches. The archer is definitely male and I am also painting them as Dark Elves (although the Warhammer Dark Elves have repeater crossbows).For Dark Elves I use black and purple. I like the sorceress and I have seen one made into Viet Cong.
Many Thanks James – I knew somebody would know. I think they have lots of possibilities.
The thing with fantasy figures is you don’t need huge numbers; just add them to a medieval or Renaissance army. I did use these figures to add to a dwarf unit (which already had many strange figures from various sources of plastic and metal). I did buy about five buckets of these True legends figures so eventually I’ll have several units of the archers. My fantasy world does have a Dark Elves country so if it ever enters the wars i’ll suddenly have to do a lot of painting. The thing with such an army is it can also use strange and wonderful beasts, easily obtained from op shops and toy stores. The figure of the ork I didn’t like – too short – but I added putty beaky noses to make them into goblins.

Thanks for the ideas James . I think some may end up in various scenarios including Close Little Space Wars etc. Out in Planet Yarden (the garden) as some have a Flash Gordon quality to them.
