Recently I "acquired" (ie, found in the trash) a pretty much complete box of the ol' circa 1992 Battle Masters game, produced by Milton Bradley and Games Workshop. Battle Masters is, as described to me, Warhammer with simplified rules. It contains minis for two sides; Empire and Chaos (Chaos encompassing human Chaos warriors, Marauder Archers, Orcs and Goblins, and Beastmen). Honestly, the minis aren't that bad.. well, the Chaos ones are terrible but the Empire minis really aren't that terrible, and when painted well (there are some examples on the back of the box) they look nearly indistinguishable from today's plastic minis (all minis in the box are plastic btw). Anyway I was thinking of using these for Warhammer but I want to make sure it's "okay". I haven't bothered counting the Chaos minis but for Empire there is contained:
13+ Halberdiers (I say 13+ because there may be more in the pile) w/ shields
6 Knights w/ Lances, Shields & Barded Steeds
Great Cannon w/ 2 crew
Anyway, would it be acceptable using these minis, as they are part Games Workshop and are obviously heavily influenced by Warhammer Fantasy? Does anyone else have Battle Masters and/or use Battle Master minis?

I have 2 complete sets and I would think it 100% ok to use the models in Fanatasy battles

If i remember rightly the miniatures were more or less identical to the plastic regiments sets they produced with 4th edition WHFB- ok so they are generally god awful and all in the same pose but once painted and if based properly they would be more or less indistinguishable and form an acceptable rank and file
