Keep ‘Em Coming!

I finished painting the remaining Night Goblins from the Knightmare Miniatures range so my warband is expanded and as complete as it currently can be. Thinking ahead for Saga, I can field three units of warriors, three trolls (I assume there will be some monster/monstrous creature slot), a shaman/wizard and the warlord.

While looking for any release info or beta rules that might be floating around (no luck there), I did come across a fan made project called A Fantastic Saga. Haven’t tried it, but clearly a lot of work has gone into the expanded rules and fantasy races that are available, so definitely worth checking out. Using the Kobaloi list, I could field my Night Goblins as a 6 points force.

Whether with flail or axe, goblins just like to bash things

If you can’t afford an axe, a wooden stick with nails does the trick

    • Thanks! I wanted to make sure to keep at least one of the war bands completed with the new additions – all the other tribes have no paint on them yet…

    • Nice, did you get everything you hoped for? I didn’t go all in on that Kickstarter (for once) so will have to do some webstore shopping later – as soon as I have worked through the original Kickstarter…

    • Yup, it’s all as I hoped it would be (including the Night Goblin boss I was admiring the other day :-) ). Of course this does mean the heap of greenskins I was planning to paint this month has just grown a little taller… Ah well, there should be even more in October! :-D

  1. Love your work here, and these goblins look distinct enough from his GW ones while still being very much in the same mold – and clearly Kev’s work – a perfect canvas for the great work you’re doing with them!

    • Glad you are enjoying them. They lend themselves well to a different take on Warhammer (they are too big to match any existing Warhammer goblin range I have) while clearly feeling of that world.

    • Thank you! Yes, the sculpts really motivated me to keep at it and paint the reinforcements up quickly (at least for this one clan, still got the others to tackle).

    • Thanks! Most of the techniques don’t require too much precision, a wash of thin paint does wonders and accentuates highlights without having to pick them out individually.
