Wolfboyz!

I’ve been adding a few odd Goblin Wolf Rider to my Orcs & Goblins army while I’ve been working on other projects. This brings the unit of spear/shield Goblins to 10, and a the bow-armed unit to 8. In addition to Warhammer, I also plan on using the Goblins to sub in for warbands for Saga. Sure, Goblins aren’t historically accurate, but they’re my only painted models that have cavalry. I plan on using them to ‘count-as’ Spanish, Breton, or Saracen warbands, since those all make extensive use of cavalry.

Since I was building up more Wolf Riders, I decided they could use a hero to accompany them (and they needed a proper Warlord for Saga). I acquired the odd mount from a friend; I’m not sure of its origins, but it seems like something you’d get in one of the GW/Milton Bradley miniature games (or something like it). I figured the alligator-lizard thing would help the boss stand out from the rest of the troops. I built up the simple saddle with lots of extra weapons, bags, and blankets. He got a bow and quiver and extra loot. Fancy decoration finished off his helmet and shield, continuing the checkers and dog’s teeth design for the army.

  1. Love the hero. The freehadn on his shield reminds me strongly of the Rackham style back in the day. Overall the miniatyures look ace and I also like that you use the muted colours to good effect without sacrificing contrast.
