PostSubject: The Next To The Last Hurrah!   Tue 7 Feb 2017 - 10:38

One of the Folk on the Reaper Forum posed the question to the community at large: "Do you have a favorite Army?". Photos were requested.
I just happen to have the remains of a nice undefeated Night Goblin, Troll, & Giant Army packed up & sitting in a cardboard box under my work table. They are the last Army I painted & will likely remain so. I was merrily adding to the Beasty when G.W. made some changes, added a new rules book, & hoisted interest in War Hammer at my the local hobby/games store on their own petard....ergo my Army remains undefeated aka never played.

It was originally going to be a (American) White Dwarf Skirmish Game Army, but it grew. When I arrived here in Texas it became apparent that gaming was not in my future. SO friend Edwin "Mordheimer" Molina offered to eBay the lot. I shipped it off to him. He took some photos & sold a couple of the units...the price he got was low enough for me to call the selling off. He returned the remains, which have lurked in their box under the work table, all wrapped up ever since.

SO I posted Edwin's photos & the thought that perhaps I should finally unpack the Lads & take some photos popped unbidden into my head. Ergo, I did, AND will momentarily inflict both Edwin's & my own photos upon you, Gentle Readers.

This is the remains of the Army fresh from their Box:

These are some of Edwin "Mordheimer" Molina's Fabulous Photos:
Barf O'Bilges Bounding Boys:






















































Rather than cut Edwin's ever enthusiastic photos, I'm posting them here with some exceptions in their entirety.   clown

Gouger McGoon's Gourmets were rescued from the fire sale. This means there will be some of my photos of them later on...mine will be the less professional & slightly more subdued ones:
















...Edwin loves closeups; the next will be a selection. He took several shots of each individual Troll; should they be requested I'll post them as well:














Lulu The Land Waster, which is the last of Edwin's Army Photos (there are others of different thingies) will be next. There are SO many picture a little editing may be necessary. Edwin felt that if he could eat it, it was his:


...to avoid any unpleasant outcome, I told him to consider Lulu as to be permanently on loan to him.  clown

To start the deluge today, I took some closer photos of the individual units in the mass formation. I'll be taking & posting photos of each unit from a few different angle this morning.
SO (SO is such a fine way to start a sentence) here is the former G.W. Hobgoblin Bolt Thrower...liberated & improved by the Brotherhood:

 
...the next Infamous Gang is Filthy McFang's Forlorn Hope Note: in case you are wondering about the names & even if you are not, way back when, Gav Thorpe, one of G.W's Honcho made the comment that the Orcs were like Dark Age Scots. I figured that if the Orcs were Scots, then the Goblins must be Irish & I gave them vaguely Irish sounding names:

 
...Raunchy O'Ratbait's Raiders is the largest unit & the only spear armed one in the Brotherhood (an explanation of the Army name later). There was a second & larger spear armed unit ready for painting when the G.W. improvements kill all interest in the game at my gaming/hobby store:

 
...the second Archer Unit, Rowdy O'Ragear's Reavers:

 
...fronted by a none too wise never named converted Wizard. Sleazy McSucuzz's Skallywags, who are immediately, the Wizard, somehow were missed in this photo session, but will be the first of the individual unit pics:


...another unnamed, but, in this case, unconverted Wizard (his twin is named Temerity O'Leery, Drug Lord):

 
...AND bringing up the rear, Gouger McGoon's Gourmet's:

 

 
...now I'll take some more retina threatening photos.  clown" />

AND now for the first time ever, Sleazy McScuzz's Skallywags seen here with their Fanatic whirling around:

 

 
...The Fanatics Note: for those who have been spared the evil influence of War Hammer Goblin lore, Fanatics are drug crazed Loonies who are potentially hidden in each Night Goblin Unit. When they near an unfriendly unit, the Fanatics, armed with HUGE spiked iron balls & chains, are released to go whirling through the enemies ranks...there's an equal chance of coming straight back through their own ranks. In either case they leave swathes of death & destruction in their wakes until they either expire or run into an immovable object, the result of which is too gross to be considered here:

 
...The Skallywags Themselves:

 
...swords were hard to come by in the Night Goblin Box, SO I substituted torches to make up the difference:

 

 

 
...more in a bit!  clown

Next on the Order of Battle, so to speak, is Raunchy O Ratbait's Raiders, the Big spear armed Gang...calling them a Goblin Unit/Regiment seems like a contradiction in terms; & Mob would probably be more correct than Gang.:

 

 
...with the Gangs Fanatics on the loose:

 
http://i762.photobucket.com/albums/xx269/DeafNala/The%20Red%20Botherhood%20Goblins%20Revisited/DSCN3718.jpg
 
...AND all the Pointy Lads...there's a Hero lurking in the ranks:

 

 

 

 
The smallest of the Mobs at the minimum number of twenty, Filthy McFang's Forlorn Hopes:

 

 
...attached Fanatics:

 
...some Freelance Fanatics, destined for a Gang that never happened:

 
...AND the Boys:

 

 

 

 
...YET MORE ANON...well maybe a tad more than anon.  clown

Thanks for the reply, Jim. I'm glad you like it.   What a Face
There are a lot of really splendid threads in the various Shout It Out Section that deserve more support than they receive. The number of Forum Folk who actively post out side of their own thread or special interest is very small.
