Goblinoids- finished in time for Orctober!

Thanks to the guys here who have helped me complete this set (especially Just John and Mutantdale). I used to love Combat Cards when I was a kid and a few years ago I decided to collect the minis from my favourite set, Goblinoids!

Three years later and I have all the lead and shields I need. Now I need to duplicate Kev Adam's awesome conversions (hoping I have found the right base models!) and try to replicate the superb painting... this is going to be a labour of love and involve buying some nice new paintbrushes. Fortunately the Golden Gobbo provided me with an opportunity to test out detailed greenskin painting!

Suggestions for how these should be based/displayed welcome. Either as an 80s style diorama or in individual windows set up as on the cards are my two current ideas.

That deserves a small ripple at least.
Love little projects like that.

Re: The collection is complete!

Nice work, always found it odd that some of the pictures on the cardsare flipped around so there facing aren't the same as the figures..

Yeah, I think they're flipped to avoid bits of the weapons off running off the edge of the card. Oddly (or not) the 'big snots' were the hardest to find and most expensive... appropriate for the weediest cards in the deck!

Re: The collection is complete!

What a great project!

They're my favourite set of cards too - I must have around 20 odd of the minis but never crossed my mind to put them together.

Looking forward to seeing your conversions!

Re: The collection is complete!

Go with an 80s basing style and you can then do an Oldhammer scenario to go with the warband ;)

Re: The collection is complete!

I agree what a wonderful idea and great motivation for collecting.

If you decide to do this with the dwarfs you will face at least one real challenge....the unreleased or even cast wizard....the holy grail of dwarf collectors.
