I can't really tell if they are both the same model, since the paint makes a difference. But I was wondering if anyone here could identify the year they were made? I believe they are from Gamesworkshop.

Hi Denzak,
you are right they are the same model. And yes they are from GW. The model is from 1993.
You are a happy man to have one of those wonderfull rat ogres.

Thank you very much smile! Smile

I'm just weary because models made from 1997 and earlier contain lead in them... source. I don't know how much lead is in them, so I have no idea if it's potentially harmful to be constantly touching them. Perhaps the main concern was children swallowing small bits and dying? Since lead is a highly poisonous metal.

Since I'm so paranoid, do you think people would look at me oddly if I wore gloves while playing? D:
Then again as long as I don't put my hands in my mouth after/while playing and wash my hands after I should be fine...

You'll propably consume more lead from one glass of tabwater than you would from handling this mini. especially when painted, so yes, your paranoia would make you look silly Wink

The lead in them shouldn't be enough to poison you. However swallowing parts of them would be harmful.

I have it on good authority that those models are highly toxic and you should get rid of them straight away. I'll give you £1 to dispose of them safely. Ahem... Razz

As an electronics engineer I work with lead quite a lot, as for prototyping solder containing lead is way easier to work with then the stuff without. Miniatures contain less lead (few %s) then solder does (40%). You're fine with washing your hands, and when a miniature is covered in paint, I don't even think that is necessary. The cities in the era of leaded gasoline was a lot worse.
