Warduking It Out

Found via 2 Warps to Neptune, here's a picture from Jack Coggins's The Illustrated Book of Knights (Grosset & Dunlap, 1957):


. . . And here's Warduke. On a horse:



I don't see any resemblance at all. Do you?

Man. I *loved* the D&D toys.

@Justin: Yup, me too. I wish I still had them. Well, those and all my Star Wars figures . . .

Did you see my post update? Someone pointed out that Coggins influenced Gygax, and it turns out that the cover art on Chainmail was lifted directly from Coggins!

By the way, why is Warduke holding a light saber?

Very cool. I never had any of the toys. I think I bought my friend a gold dragon for his birthday. He liked it a little too much. Thought he was going to cry. I was just going for, "Hey a dragon. Cool."
