The first edition of Talisman was released at Games Day in 1983, the second edition added colour and was released in 1985. Several expansions followed between Talisman Expansion in 1985 and Talisman Dragons in 1993. In 1986 Citadel released miniatures to replace the counters enclosed in the game.
The numbering of these sets varied across the years, being presented in individual blisters, multiple figure blisters with at least two numbering schemes and also in blister boxes that matched the Talisman sets.
The Third edition game, released in 1994-5, used all plastic miniatures, many borrowed from the Warhammer Fantasy Battle range. Several were later released in the "Toy Store" series of small boxes. They are shown here rebased on hex bases for consistency with the original range.
