Can anyone identify this chaos cannon? The crew are games workshop chaos dwarfs but I cant remember where I got the cannon. Grenadier or Ral Partha perhaps?
Someone is mistakenly listing it as an unreleased GW item for an absurd price-

I'd think if it was GW … he would have taken a pic of the bottom of the mini. Usually "GW" and the date is there ?

Its definitely not GW. I was reasonable sure it was a Grenadier item due to the detail. Ral Partha minis weren't quite as detailed. But wouldn't bet on which company produced it.

I agree I don't think it is GW either ...

The facebook group Oldhammer Miniatures Valuation & Identification (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1967772713470265/) is great for figuring out this kind of stuff.

It does look like a rip off/tribute to the chaos dwarf ass cannon of much fame and cost. Apologies for the swear word but that’s how it’s known in the oldhammer community. Maybe someone trying to cash in on the original. I would try asking on the oldhammmer forum

Thanks. The one I have pictured in the first post with the GW crew is mine. I can assure you it is not a copy. I bought it new many years ago. The ebay link is someone else and wrongly lists it as a GW product.
I am nearly sure it was produced by Grenadier before the company closed down.
I am thinking of selling off many of my old fantasy armies that have gathered dust for far too long. Someone should enjoy them. If I decide to sell I wanted to correctly identify each mini and its original manufacturer. The chaos cannon with cannon balls is the only item in my chaos dwarf minis that I am not 100% sure of its manufacturer.

When in doubt when I sell on eBay I just say I don't know the manufacturer. Either they like the mini or not ! ;D 8)
