The whole range of minis are rather nice - good spot!

Might have to get some for Dungeoneering and leave the Trolltooth duties to Ral Partha.

Right, I've taken the plunge and got hold of 15 Advanced Heroquest Henchmen - anyone else got any spare they wouldn't mind parting with as I need another 10 or so.

I'll take a look, thanks mate! :D

Re: Fighting the Trolltooth Wars in 28mm. Advice please?

If your final battle scene is 10:1 scale, and the 37 goblin tribes are roughly 15 models per tribe, then i'd like to donate a tribe to the cause - I have a bunch of odds and ends left from collecting Kev Adams forest gobboes, extra champions and so forth. If i painted them up and put them on a little display base (like a mini diorama i guess, sort of) would that be a welcome addition?

Yes, very much so! Thanks for the very kind and generous offer! :D

It'd be my pleasure to be a part of something like this. I've been over this thread and the whole thing really captured my imagination :)

I'm pleased about that. When Thantsants first admitted a fascination with the story (which was a youthful favourite of mine too) I got really excited about a project based on it.

Re: Fighting the Trolltooth Wars in 28mm. Advice please?

I was going to PM this but it occurred to me that other potential donors might benefit from the discussion - for the final presentation, I'm wondering, are you using a custom made board? If so, would you rather I left off flocking bases etc so there isn't any odd terrain mismatching? I was planning to include some basic scenic elements on my contribution, probably in the form of some twisted spiderwebby trees to fit the forest goblin theme, and maybe a small hill/rocky outcropping to mount them on. I can do it all up to the point of flock and leave it for you guys to add the finishing touches if you like?

Re: Fighting the Trolltooth Wars in 28mm. Advice please?

We are going to game the scenarios at home first so that we can photograph them and post them up as battle reports. The next stage will be to run them at a wargames show or two and publicise Oldhammer a little bit. I am running a WW2 table at the next Recon for my club to get some experience in that regard. Either way I think we will be using existing boards that we have at our houses and maybe a handful of custom terrain pieces, all of which use a mixture of browns and greens on the ground. What I would suggest though is that you just enjoy building the goblin tribe and don't feel constrained by us in any way, rather let us concern ourselves with how we pose the photography to show the scene in the best light. There is the old WD trick of temporarily burying the bases in flock if all else fails! :D
