Got a few more figures done for an upcoming D&D game and a funny thought occurred to me as I was painting them. I really love Games Workshop's Lord Of The Rings games and I got The Hobbit Escape From Goblintown when it first came out. Having said that, I've now painted 33 of the Goblintown miniatures for various games but haven't used a single one to play Lord Of The Rings...weird.
Anyway for my next game I wanted some broken or debased men rather than classic low level monsters. To that end I decided to re-purpose the goblins from The Hobbit. This is actually the second time I've done this as I previously painted a dozen of these goblins to use as 'Null-men' for Frostgrave.
It's funny that I've never wanted to sit down and paint all 36 of these goblins at one go because everytime I paint some of them I wish I had painted more. The sprue comes with 18 separate poses and styles of goblins armed with an assortment of weapons. These are absolutely tremendous figures and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for any kind of CHUDs for their fantasy gaming.
I also need 2 "big bads" for my game and for the muscle component I wanted something larger than a character model but not quite into ogre/troll size range. Once more my Zombicide Black Plague box stepped up and offered up the Abomination.
This figure is exactly what I was looking for as its big and scary without looking like something that would be way beyond the capacity of my low (1st) level adventuring party. It's kind of a zombie/flesh-golem hybrid that I can stat out myself.
That should have me all caught up on figs I need for RPGs for the next couple of weeks, now its on to pig-men!
