There were two specifications, the first was to make them have rusty weapons, the second to use a bit of red where possible. The red to represent the blood of your slain enemies. That's a 10 year old mind for you.
This group features some conversions and a few repair jobs on some beaten up old figures to help the army come together nicely. Mostly 80s and early 90s figures. A few were bought new but are old Grenadier Miniature sculpts that are still in production with Mirliton SG in Italy.
Most of them were second hand and given a new life.
The Gobbo Army so far...
Some Hell Hounds used as Flea Bags
Fimir acting as Trolls
Another unit of Trolls
Ghouls with hand weapons as Undead Revenant Allies - hard to find in metal so got these new from Mirliton SG (red shields!) Nice rusty weapons
Marauder Goblin General on wolf (more red bits)
Goblin Phalanx Horde 1
I gave the hordes more of a grittier look than the bright, cartoonish originals.
I take out the commander and wizard figures from this horde when we need extra hero characters for games. I think he's King Skarsnik (or something).
Goblin Phalanx Horde 2
Kev Adams Heartbreaker command and character figures
Gotta love those crazeee teef
Goblin Spitter (archer) Horde
These are made up from the first wave of Citadel plastics. I really like that style.
A troop of Fanatics - 1980s and 1990s models
Citadel, Marauder and Iron Claw
Regiment of spitters
Spider Riders - only because they look pretty cool.
Feathers have been dipped in the blood of their enemies!
Used as Flea Bag riders.
This Giant is from Mirliton SG. He only had 2 fists as weapons which wasn't scary enough.
I replaced a fist with a blade and put in a trident to make him nastier.
I gave him happy pants though to help the red strips of cloth stand out more.
He inflicts a great amount of damage in his games so far and is worth the points outlay.
Goblin Rabble regiment - made up of Heroquest figures
A pair of spear throwers - War machine crews are given orange uniforms.
These are handy and great to annoy your opponent.
Stone thrower. A nice model but might only get one or two hits in during a game. When it scores a hit it can do some decent damage though.
The other side. It's a nice little diorama and gaming piece in one. I added a little coil of rope for some reason. This was in rough shape when I picked it up and now you would never know...
