Goblin Army - First Installment

Not so many months ago I would have professed having very little interest in either (a) 28mm Impetus or (b) Fantasy Impetus. However, when some guys in the group started lighting a 28mm Fantasy Impetus fire, I just couldn't help myself - it's hard to resist any project related to my favourite mass battle rule-set. To show that I've actually been doing something with a brush as of late, here's the first 200-point installment of my Goblin army.

Gutbar Bloodmoon (CH-Hero)

Napleoff, Goblin General (FL inc. general)

Goblin Spearmen (FL)

More Goblin Spearmen (FL)

Norkodemus & Bodyguard (FL + CH-Wizard)

Goblin Scouts (S)

Goblin Scouts (S)

So that's the core of my force. Including command structure and special abilities it comes in at just under 200 points. Currently on the workbench I have a half-painted troll and the necessary parts to start in on some Wolf Riders. I'll keep you all posted.

Thanks for reading,



I like your army, i play at IMPETUS FANTASY with 15mm army but 28mm pieces are always impressive.

That spacing really does bring out the goblin nature. They look great.

Lovely work. If I had the space or inclination to do fantasy army models again, this would be a huge inspiration.. So much nicer than single based massed rank stuff.

Looking great. You're developing a really nice sense of the basing with these template / dioramic effects.

Hmm. I'm a touch confused here. It may simply be that I've never played in a game that uses miniatures, and that I'm getting in on this almost three years late, but is there any provision made for them to be moving through different terrain? For example, Gutbar Bloodmoon has to hop down off his rock to go through a forest, or a river, etc. Is there any way to detach him, from it to do that?

Thanks for the comments guys. The 28mm bases are a bit of a stretch for me.

The base itself is an integral part of the miniature, and all of the terrain material on the base is for looks only. In other words, it's a little abstract, but the goblin hero and his base are permanently attached and are moved everywhere together.

I like how you filled in the base-space with rocks and bushes. I'll need to do something similar with my DBA goblin psiloi elements. I have two little goblins surrounded by a huge empty 60 mm wide space.

Totally inspiring. I want to do a 28mm HoTT army now. I've got boxes of this stuff unpainted.
