Workbench Update: Finally Some Fantasy Impetus Progress

After a two-week dry spell in the painting department, I finally picked up the brush and got down to business. Marc and I had an uninterrupted painting afternoon on Monday past (i.e. no spouses, no offspring) and while he finished off his elven cavalry, I finished the bulk of my goblin spearmen.

The front unit above contains my general (who is currently unnamed) with a regular unit in the back..

...with two more regular units for a total of four units of spearmen. Stat-wise, I based the goblins on Welsh infantry, so they are VBU:4, I:1, D:B with long spear. You can see my almost-complete hero in the background as well (the guy with the red shield).

I've begun the prep-work on four units of skirmishing archers and, with any luck, I might be able to put down a 200-point army this weekend. Keep your fingers crossed.

Thanks for reading,

Very pretty! I love the straggly look of the units. That's definitely more goblin-like.

Love how your stands are coming out. When we did Hordes of Things, long ago. I tried to get everybody to do bigger bases. Seems like Impetus is alot like HOTTs and DBA.

Looking good mate...Can I ask why you chose GW as there are cheaper alternatives out there, though not as handy as a GW store I grant you

A friend gave me all of the goblin models from the Battle For Skull Pass boxed set, so in my case, they were free :) I picked up the Wolf Rider box set to shake it up.
