From JuanM - The Conqueror (5 Points)


A new week with a very small amount of painted figures... And a very small figure this time!

He is Nobba the Conqueror, the Goblin Chieftain from Red Box Games, the new figure I have painted from this excellent sculptor, Tre Manor.




This is a very small figure, with a lot of detail and character, as usual, and I would like to paint more of these Goblins to use them with "Open Combat". I´m now awaiting the release of this ruleset, more useful for my skirmish games than "Dragon Rampant" because there are not necessary too many figures.

I expect that Nobba, a true giant with his folks, give me 5 points for my run with Phil (these figures are not the best option for a side challenge...).

Cheers!

You did a beautiful job on this figure Juan. I particularly like the well-worn spear-tip with the various trophies along its shaft. A very cool mini. I did not know that Red Box is releasing a ruleset - I'm going to keep an eye out for that as well.
Another 5 points for your duel with Phil! I look forward to next week.

    1. Thanks, my friend. Yes, he is the only one I have been able to finish on time... My astute plan is short of a number of penguins or Balearic slingers...

  4. Thanks, Curt. The ruleset I´m awaiting is from Second Thunder. Red Box Games was working in something too, but I prefer "Open Combat".
