Finally, another unit of wolfriders done.

This group is a bit of mixed bag. Some Marauder, some Citadel and few on Ral Partha wolves.







I got a little side tracked working on the village in the background.  I'm currently working on some goblin villagers to go with it.

Bye for now-

Hello!

I have gotten a few things painted over the past couple months I just can't find the time to take proper pictures.

However, this morning I was messing around with a job lot of  goblins in desperate need of repairs. I am a sucker for cheap ebay auctions of busted up minis. Anyways, I finally found a use for all those Reaper Bones models I have laying about.  I must admit I am a little disappointed in many of the Bones models with the exception of the larger models and the price point, but they do prune easily enough.

And now I have seven more proper (mostly metal) Goblins on the painting line.


Hopefully pics of painted minis coming soon.

By for now!

As seen in a the background of a few my previous pics here is a little better look at my Goblin village.

The huts are from Scotia Grendal's 'Goblin Stronghold' set, with the taller tower huts created by simply stacking them up. To help bulk them out a little I based the huts either individually or in multiples together and built fences and gardens around them to help give a lived in feel.

Most of the goblin villagers are from Four A Miniatures with a few citadel mixed in and a Reaper Bones pig cart.

















Thanks for looking.

I am of course a bit Oldhammer in my approach to Goblins. I'm old enough to remember when Goblin alignment was classified as "neutral" albeit with a lean towards evil, do to their poor upbringing, lack of a stable home and proper father figure etc.  Its their affinity with hanging out with Orcs, those damn enablers, that leads them down the wrong path. 
Under proper circumstances Goblins can be quite congenial and may make outstanding citizens of the Empire some day.  :-P

that is the best thing I have ever read about goblins ..love it. Im going to start a goblin heritage foundation to rescue goblins who have  wondered down bad paths and try to rehabilitate them.

Seems another reason for the Empire to exterminate all orcs. :icon_wink:

I also added eight more Orcs to my Orc villagers lot. That puts me at a unit 35 Orc levies.
I got these guys from our very own Zak the mad Viking.  I suspect they might be SteveB jobs so I didnt touch the paint jobs just cleaned up the chipped paint (maybe Zak can confirm?). I did however re-do the bases to match my own.

And I finally finished the big Orc hut. That things been sitting on my hobby desk for 10 years or more, looks like crap but hey its off my desk.

 Orc and Goblin boar chariots
I added a couple more chariots to the ever expanding Goblinoid army. The Orc chariot is pieced together from left over job lots. The Goblin chariot is the old Goblin King Chariot, however the Goblin king himself went missing and replaced by an appropriately mean looking gobbo.
