Well here I will begin the documentation of my Goblin army (may eventually have some orcs but who knows). It begins with the Night Goblin tribe called the Grey Brotherhood composed of two regiments and three fanatics, as well as a troll tagging along.

Big boss Shiny Eye and shaman Doomface.


First Regiment about half painted.


Second Regiment, fully painted by previous owner. Needs stripping and re painting to pass my standards.


Troll painted by previous owner and as with above needs stripping and re painting.


As before the fanatics also need the works.


Next is the Dah Red Pelts tribe of wolf riders. Still need a ton of GS work to fix the previous owners heinous glue job.

Dah Rammies.


Dah Plinkies.


Just a comparison of his glue job and my GS cover ups.


And his worst model. Will put a wolf's head over the neck to hide it and paws hanging down to hide the armpits.


My Dah Red Pelts banner looted from a Bretonnian knight.


Lastly the whole Shebang so far with the doom diver given to me by my best friend.


Some future thoughts. Will build heavily armoured goblins to play as black orcs, also doing a Roman legion themed regiment named Keezurs Leegun with a big boss roman style called keezer (wreathe and all) and possibly a unit of goblins with looted dwarf guns and paraphernalia.

C&C always welcome.

WOW! You got the photos up fast...AND they look VERY COOL! I really like what you're doing with your Wolves...I'll have to steal some of your ideas. VERY NICE WORK...keep us updated as you progress. thumbsup

As a "count as Orc" mini, I combined the plastic Orc torsos & arms with Goblin legs & Night Goblin heads for Ubergoblins:



...just an idea. clown

They do look hilariously awesome though my idea for the black orc gobbos was just to arm and armour them to the teeth. probably some empire armoured torsos, some empire and bretonnian arms, some random helmets from whatever faction (basically just some tough gobbos who nabbed all the loot).

looks great!
just a quick warning, you'd have to use the now OOP empire soldiers for the armoured torsos, or knights or greatsword bodies. Extra greatsword bodies shouldn't be to expensive on ebay. The box comes with lots of spares.

or you could use these Wink



ps: when do we get to see Lee?

Those are cool but I love converting so I'd rather do that. And who is Lee?

Just for that I will have to make one! Smile Have the idea now. I have a spare militia long coat and one pistol arm from the ones Tom gave me last year. Just get a wolf and GS a beard and hat plus some other odd bits and baubles... Very Happy

As it is essay and exam season nothing new has been done. Though in lecture today I was thinking about how to do armoured goblins, what do people think about Imperial Guard Cadian torsos (with the eagle filed off)?

The I.G. has possibilities. The Empire Knight's torsos would work...if you imagine the armor as being "liberated" by the Goblins, you could leave all the Imperial embellishments. What a Face

I think Empire knight torsos would be your best bet, would fit the WHFB look better in my opinion.

I have finished painting the entire first unit as well as converting the goblin with the squig into the chieftain of what is now called Dah Blue Moon Tribe, his name will be Hoptar Brewswiller. I've painted three of the BFSP goblins, one being my converted standard bearer, and one of the wolf riders. Bunch more of the goblins are in a bucket of simple green stripping and the holidays have just begun. I'll get photos once I find my camera.

As for the black goblins what I've decided upon is to get a unit of common goblins, some black orc bases, and some plasticard and make simple orkish armour, at a goblins scale for them.
