Ready to storm out of the mountains and pillage the vales of Men, here is a unit of fifteen horrible 28mm goblin wolf-riders to add to my Middle Earth collection. I’m not rally sure how a bunch of nasty ferocious wolves would consent to being hidden around by an even more horrible pack of smelly loutish goblins, nor for that matter do I understand how the goblins can ride them without saddles, harness, reigns, etc. Maybe that’s the tradeoff.
Shooty types. I like how the North Star Oathmark kits come with a wide variety of weapons and gear, and assemble easily. Likewise the wolves are simple two part models and go together without too obvious joining lines. They painted up well enough with some simple drybrushing.
Stabby types with their Sacred Skull of Whatsit Standard.
Quite pleased with them overall - generic enough for simple fantasy points battle, but atmospheric enough to be in the empty of either the White Hand or the Lidless Eye. Maybe there’s an Osprey book, “Mordor’s Minor Allies”, to be written. They should give the Rohirim cause for concern.
Thanks for looking. Blessings to your brushes!
