A study in practical nostalgia, travelling back to the early 1980's with a fistful of cash, to buy all the stuff I couldn't afford on a paperboys salary.
They look fantastic and I reckon the John Barleycorn Reborn banner looks spot-on. Well done on more completed minis sir!
Cheers Gaz.....I'll keep the banner then!! BTW there seems to be a real dungeon renaissance at hand with Mantic bringing out a new sort of Heroquest. I have been on at my local model shop to stock Reaper Bones and Otherworld so with luck that might bear some fruit.
Lovely unit, they look murderous, they could work for AD&D lawful evil hobgobs with their uniform colours. Mind if I put pics in my Orctober thread, they certainly qualify?
Hey Erny, I would be very pleased for them to qualify for Orctober....I was going to paint up some Age of Joman goblins for this august event but fear I will run out of time. Some Ral Partha orcs coming soon.
Mean looking fellows indeed!
Some of the faces are brilliant on these old sculpts...I think Nick Lund could be my second favourite sculptor after Dick Higgs.

Great and menacing, just perfect for Thistlewooding! I am getting very excited about the upcoming fight!
Cheers Private W. With luck the punch up will be at the end of the year.
Cool unit - very brooding and dark =) Banner is awesome!
Thank Ace, brooding and dark is good! I'll keep the banner then.
