Orcs of the Severed Hand (1983)

Grenadier got the Dungeons & Dragons license in 1981 and TSR revoked it in 1982. That didn’t stop them from producing miniatures for use with the game though. The Dragon Lords series picked up where the Wizzards & Warriors (the misspelling is intentional) line left off when the companies teamed up. You’ll note the starburst indicating that they are “all new” sculpts – that might be true of the Orcs of the Severed Hand, but other sets got into trouble with TSR’s litigious nature for hewing too close to D&D monster designs. The contents of many Dragon Lords sets would change over the next few years in order to avoid costly lawsuits.
