Now I’m not making any great claims to my painting or modelling skills, but there are a couple of bits and pieces that I’m quite happy with.
|Night Goblin Big Boss on Gigantic Spider|
|Squig (Maggot) Hoppers|
|Rock Lobber Crew|
When I started assembling the army, my intention was to build a full Night Goblin Army. I didn’t do this for a couple of reasons, the first was that in the job lot of gobbos I bought there were a load of orcs that needed using. Secondly, after getting spanked numerous times, the addition of a few bigger meaner warriors couldn’t hurt. I’m still losing games, but at least I’m taking a few of the enemy with me.
I’ve played about a dozen games with my army and found it to be fantastic fun. Magic is pretty powerful; the greenskins have their own miscast table, and the infamous 'Staff of Sneaky Stealin' which adds one of your opponents power dice to your dispel pool. The animosity rule does mean that units can go running off on their own or just plain refuse to do what you ask which can be like herding cats, but then I like cats, so that’s okay.
From a Frugal point of view, I think I've managed to put together a good, fun army for a reasonable price (about £100 in total). I've already had a year's worth of fun painting and modelling it and I'm sure I'll have many more years of entertainment (and disappointment) playing the army. Well worth the investment.
