Now after Chico resurrected the idea of doing Warhammer armies poses I decided to go for it myself. Here we have me in Goblin master pose it seamed appropriate.
Now a closer look at the units:
Twenty orc boys with a champion I'm really please with how this unit turned out, it contains many of my original orc boys from back in the day.
Another twenty Orcs with champion made up of marauders excellent orcs, notice a chariot rider that I couldn't resist putting in the front rank.
Nine snortas with Champion and magic banner. You may recognise them from my banner.
Twelve arrer boyz these are also very old collected from junk bins in toy soldier shops over the years before the days of e-bay.
More Arrer boyz, twenty two, all armed with crossbows.
My wyvern rider, classic mini and I guess the center piece of the force. That rounds off all the orc units on to the goblins.
Two units of ten wolf boys. One unit of Marauder and one of Citadel, not sure which is my favorite, what do you think?
Twenty eight gobbos with spears, shields and light armour.
Forty goblin stikkas. I don't care how rubbish they are or how tough the opponent forty short bows are going to mess your day up. particularly when you have fanatics hidden in your midst.
Speaking of which here are the mad little runts. These have only had a very quick paint, literally the night before the big day I got these painted as much as I could they certainly need revisiting and I have a few more slotta and pre slotta fanatics to add to the ...? What is a group of goblin ball and chain fanatics called, a frenzy, a whirl, a mosh?
You can also see on of the armies goblin wizards.
So here are some old trolls and stone throwers that also need attention from the brush. There is also a marauder black orc pretending to be a hero while he waits for the rest of his unit to be painted.
So whats next, I could do with getting the bits that need finishing done first but I think bumping the trolls up to ten is a must followed by more boys for each of the two infantry blocks and an army banner.
For even further in the future I need to get the two orc RoR painted, goblin and orc chariots, a third unit of boys, more boar riders, and well the list goes on.
For those interested the 3000 point army list is here:
