Hi all. I have a team of night goblins that I use for my Mordheim force, but the old GW plastics I have are getting a bit long in the tooth, and even when they were new they were not particularly inspired or inspiring. I would like to replace them with a whole new set of figures, but I would like to get some goblins that break the GW mold… something that looks very different from the hatchet-faced Night Goblin standard. I've been eyeing these two lines:

but I would love to hear any other ideas that people might have. Bonus points if the gobs come with a decent variety of poses and weapon types. I have about 15 gobs in my warband, and if I could avoid doubling up that would be preferred.

Also, what is the proper collective noun for goblins? A bludgeon of goblins? A plop of goblins? A rash of goblins?

I have admired these…

(I think it is called a knave of goblins.)

I believe they may still be oop at the moment, but Rackham's Confrontation goblins were awesome. Lots of baroque, pointy plate armor, reminiscent of the armored goblins at the end of the film Labyrinth.

Goblin Factory's minis are nice and affordable! link

Otherwise, Redbox Games goblins are nice too! link

Mantic's new goblins look pretty cool: manticblog.com/?cat=70

Not sure they're released yet though.

If you like the Freebooter Goblin Pirates, you'll definitely like the old Rackham Confrontation Goblins, as Ivan DBA says. You'll especially like the Goblin Pirates boxed set, if you can get your hands on it: link

Rackham did other Goblin Pirates,not in the boxed set, and Reaper, Freebooter, Hasslefree, and other companies also do compatible Goblin Pirates.

Lots of good ideas here. Thanks chaps.

11 goblins for £6.00 GBP, you can't go wrong. They are a similar size to the current GW Night Goblins. Maybe a little smaller, but significantly bigger than a snotling, enough to fill a 20mm base comfortably.

Can't go wrong for 6 bob!
