Goblins and Imp

I decided to pick some “low-hanging fruit” last night and dug out a few half painted figures to quickly finish up and complete a unit…

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):

These are some old I-Kore Keltos goblins I’ve had kicking around for some time. A while back (over a year ago… maybe two!?) I started them, painting the flesh… and then got busy with other things and during a desk purge they got tucked away into the goblin drawer to be finished at some later date. I guess last night was that date.

I’ve been thinking about Lion Rampant and Dragon Rampant a lot lately and planning and working towards building assorted warbands and retinues. While I’ve mostly been concentrating on the Halfling Horde these last few weeks, I’ve also been looking at others and trying to figure out what I would need to finish various forces. I do have a lot of Hordes of the Things elements I could easily use in the game (like we did for our  first game)… but I do like having dedicated forces for particular games and while I like multi-figure bases for DBA/HOTT… I like having the individual bases for Lion Rampant and Dragon Rampant….

I’ll have another post up in a few minutes with some Elves I’ve put together into a warband.

The Goblins above could be a (second) Scout unit of their own, or I could combine then with some similar figures I painted a few years back (which I was already using as a scout unit) to make a complete Light Missile units.

Some strange creature I found in the lead pile that I thought I’d use as an Imp in Frostgrave.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

A Wood Elf warband for Dragon Rampant


  1. I like the imp, nice and odd! Feast and famine on the blogging front!
    Best Iain

    1. Thanks Iain! The imp is an odd figure. I seem to recal it came in a pack of three (and I have the other two around somewhere - they are similar creatures in different poses). I think they might have been from Ral Partha (maybe...?) but I'm not really sure what they were called or what they were supposed to be... but I think they'll make great imps in Frostgrave.
