So here's a slightly closer look at the smaller and more wretched end of my Goblinoid horde.
First up is the Gobbo Sticka's - all thrity six of them.
|Command section - Greengage the vile and his hangers-on|
|Detail on Greengage's shield. He seems to be a variant of Grom from Grom's Goblin Guard version 2.|
And where would any 80's era Goblinoid horde be without the obligatory presence of the plastic Gobbo's from the Warhammer Regiments boxed set!
And a nasty little surprise for anyone getting too close.
I have been dying to own the chap in the middle ever since seeing him as Gruk the Loon in the Goblinoid set of Citadel Combat Cards.
And all the lads playing happily together.
|Greengage and his Pig Sticka's - a fine sight to behold!|
|Not sure whether it was the helmet or his favourite club that earned Spiker his Nom de Guerre?|
I didn't have quite enough to make up a Snotling style 40mm base so I decided to pair them up on 20mm to make this unit look even more of a rabble.
More Warg Riders and spare Skullcrusher crew.
I'm curious as to why the Gobbo on the end has glasses - I had to paint them as classic 80's red sun glasses of course! Next to him is the first edition of Grom - sadly demoted to the ranks of Gramitt's mob by his younger and sleeker (marginally) replacement! I'm assuming the chap with the long black hair and two handed sword is some old citadel preslotta - great little mini! The Marauder Gobbo's give some more variety to the look of the unit.
Another three Fungus addicts! I've also noticed that the fanatic on the left has a variant wolf rider version - not the best weapon to be swinging round on top of a wolf one would think, but hey!
And the boys all together - aaahhhh look at the little fella's!
A charging elite knight's (hopefully!) eye view - or, how the hunter becomes the hunted!
And finally Slasher Grebbo's infamous Stunty Sticka's - definitely not to be confused with Greengage and his cowardly Pig Sticka's!
Again I ended up with a nice mix of ranges to give them a ramshackle look. From left to right we have a lesser Night Goblin, another Warg Rider sans mount, a couple of Citadel Gobbo's and a Snagga Goblin, again from the old Lord of the Rings range.
More Citadel Gobbo's and another C23 Ogre - this time with a spear head to replace the missing original weapon.
A 90's Squig Herder team (still got the Squigs somewhere), more Citadel and another Lesser Night Goblin.
Yet more Citadel, another converted Warhammer Regiments archer and another Snagga Goblin (centre)
Another Warg Rider(!) and more Citadel...
And these lovely old pre-slotta fanatics - particular favourite is the chap on the left who is having a whale of a time!
Bristling with spears and other sharp pointy things - a fearsome sight indeed!
But don't get too close...
I had a lot of fun painting these Gobbo's up despite the huge numbers of them. There were enough different ranges among them to keep it interesting and they are all so full of character.
Next up the Wolf Riders - another unit I've been dying to get painted up for ages!
