Blood Bowl: 2nd Edition Plastics
The Blood Bowl games during the second edition era came with plastic models to use for the teams. In Blood Bowl you got 16 humans and 16 orcs, Dungeonbowl had 16 dwarves and 16 elves, while krunch gave you some of all 4 to make up the two teams. We can see how they scaled the models. Orcs are the same size as humans and the elves are really thin. These dimensions did not translate to the metal lines.
The question of how to tell the positions apart was with ringed bases. These 4 all have basic gray lineman bases but in the picture below you can see on of the ringed bases on the Skaven blitzer, Red=Blitzers, White=Thrower, Green=Blocker, and Yellow=Catcher.
