Citadel Miniatures advert from White Dwarf 45, September 1983.
Note very early use of the term “Chaos Marauders”.
Guardsmen Heely was the figure used for my very first RPG character, Treson the Fighter, D&D Basic Fighter (Chaotic). He reached the dizzy heights of 10th level! This took, as I recall, about 20 minutes of hardcore play.
Tragically Treson was lost in The Warp when a parental tidy up consigned his character sheet to the bin. The figure vanished at a later date as well. (By modern standards Guardsman Heely was about the size of a 1:72 Airfix soldier).
