Chariots of the Gobs

Today I have some models I've been wanting to get to grips with almost since I began this hobby as a spotty little thirteen year old!  

Gobbo Chariots!

Army Review: Good Mourn'in Cathay!

As I tend to agree to big games or come up with all kinds of daft and over-ambitious projects, I've often ended up in a mad dash to get things painted up in time for the big day. This has often led to loads of stuff not ending up on the blog so I've been thinking of a way to remedy this. So I'm starting a series of posts where I look back and gather up all the minis I've painted for a particular army. They might not have featured on the blog at all for one reason or another or they have been done over a series of posts but never been gathered together for the big army shot.

As Hobgoblins have been on the menu recently, I'll start with them!

Keep Those Wagons Rollin'

Welcome back dear readers and crikey - lockdown has actually turned out to be a really busy time! In between redecorating the entire house (we were in the middle of a loft conversion and rewiring all the electrics when quarantine was announced), home schooling, dog entertaining and baking fresh bread everyday I don't know where the time has gone. What started out as a throwaway facebook post on my take on home schooling has also turned out to be a bit of a time sink after various friends and relatives insisted I carried it on and turned my daily home schooling posts in to something more permanent - like another blog!

I'm pleased to say that my Ogre wagons for the Dolgan Raiders scenario are now definitely finished and what a fiddle they were too - should definitely have thought of sticking all the extra bits on (as helpfully suggested by Mr Street...) before painting them!

Dolgan Raiders: No Brain Wagon Train

The Dolgan Raiders project trundles on - much like the Hobgoblin Caravan, pulled by their lobotomised slave Ogres, who are the subject of today's post!

Trolltooth Wars: The Flying Fortress

"Look! In sky. Big ship."

Orcleaver's ugly face screwed into a squint as he followed the scout's pointing finger. 

"Galleykeep," the battle-sergeant, now army commander, said quietly.

"Za'mar comes."

Trolltooth Wars: Building Castles in the Sky

There have been many challenges in translating the Legions of Zharradan Marr from the page to the tabletop but this was in some ways the greatest - the Galleykeep.

Thanks a lot Russ Nicholson!

Trolltooth Wars: Regular Joes

So on to the last of the regiments of Zharradan Marr's legions to be featured as part of this project - a unit made up of the most exotic and strange creatures to be found in all of Titan and... well everywhere really. It's the Humans...
