The Red Brotherhood is an UberGoblin (counts as Orcs) & Goblin War Band meant for the Mordheim setting...mostly.
On UberGoblins: UberGoblins don't start out very Uber at all. They are the product of a variety of Mad Cap Mushroom with an unusually high concentration of Funeroid. The side effects of this substance causes an increase in size & muscle mass along with a noticeable decrease in common sense...a rare quality in Night Goblins at best.
Whereas Orcs generally choose leaders who are great, hulking, muscle bound psychopaths, Night Goblins choose UberGoblin leaders who are cunning, sneaky, drug crazed, muscle bound psychopaths. (in the background Gracey Slick wails out White Rabbit)

AND NOW, in no particular order, THE RED BROTHERHOOD:

Head Honcho, The Grand Poobah & Guiding Light, Wastrel McWhack:







Greedy, Logistics Specialist cum Beast of Burden:





The Squigherders, Barf:



Bait:



& Belch:



The Squigs, Fang:



Ripper:



Bunky:



Dog Lip:



Yucky:



& Plop





Fast Eddy the Troll:





The rest of the Lads will be up in a bit...once my eyes can focus again.
Comments & Critiques of the Lads thus far are MOST WELCOME...more or less.

Great job! You can tell they have no comman sense because they bothered to learn Latin.  How have they done in your battles?  I would imagine them being very eratic.

Thanks, Amigo!
As far as their prowess on the bloody streets of Mordheim, it was long stretches of ASTONISHING MEDIOCRITY with rare moments of AMAZING BRILLIANCE. Regardless of how they fared, they were a joy to play & provided continuous entertainment for all involved. You really need a strong sense of the absurd to truly enjoy playing a Night Goblin War Band...congenital idiocy helps.

I'll continue to wade through the 130+photos that Amigo Edwin took until I have all the Lads posted.

UberGoblin Rowdy:





UberGoblin O'Phooey:





UberGoblin Kill'em:



UberGoblin Raunchy:



UberGoblin Rabid:



Drip the Goblin:



Boomer the Goblin:



UberGoblin Merry:



Dodgy the Goblin:



Nutjob the Goblin:





Ragged the Goblin:



Mad-As-A-Loon McGoon, The Shaman:







Bones the Goblin:



Ringo the Goblin:





AND another sanity break...sort of. There are just a few more to go...I promise.

wow, really nice conversions!

i like those goblins, their faces are much better than the ork versions! :)


maybe you should take a bit less close pictures, because the macro at this distance has the undesired effect to evidence every detail... also the unwanted ones!

AND back again...

The McGrunge Brothers
Nefarious:





& Felonious:





UberGoblin Roach:



O'Leery the Goblin



AND last & most certainly least, Weedy the Goblin:





I was wrong...the Over Enthusiastic One took 219 photos. If anyone would like different views of any of the Wretched Rogues, I would be more or less delighted to accommodate them.

Comments, Critique, & awards for bloody minded tenacity are MOST WELCOME.

Bloody-minded tenacity - 1st place
Goblin-inspired lunacy - 1st place

Absolutely love the names and character you've given these gobbos and I especially like the snotling tied to the squig herders prod! Inspired me to find a similar littler blighter to strap to the back of one of my archer's shields!  :D

Thanks, Guys!
@Sangennaru: I agree that the images are just too large. You really can't expect a mini blown up to that size to look as good as it does in real life...unless you boast a far greater talent than moi. All things considered, I was pleased with how well the faces look. My friend Edwin may have gotten a tad carried away when he took the photos.

@Thantsants: Bait comes attached to the Squig Prodder of the old metal Squig Herder...I consider it one of Citadel's nicer details.
In an old White Dwarf, Gav Thorpe was saying that the Beastmen were like ancient Germans, & the Orcs were Scots. SO I reasoned that if the Orcs were Scots, the Goblins must be Irish. I tried to make the names sound like a derogatory form of Irish names. As a Fellow Fan of Goblin silliness, I was hoping you'd like the Lads.

Lovely warband and they're so numerous! I tried a Night Goblin warband for Coreheim once (an adapted version of Mordheim) but I never painted a single figure, and yours have much more character. Well done!

Thanks for the kind words, Pil!
I'm familiar with Coreheim. Asp (the Guy who wrote them) was for a time a member of Tom's Boring Mordheim Forum where I'm one of the Mods. They seem to be a good alternate set of rules.
There's one mini left to be photographed & one I left out. There are so many of them partly due to a high attrition rate & mostly because I love painting Goblins of all sorts.

Can't have too many Gobbos!

Currently assembling a bit of a warband too - old citadel stuff of course...  ;)
 
Only got about 50 of the little devils so far...  >:D

You are a Man after my own heart...the only amount of Goblins a man can have is not enough. I have quite a stockpile of the type pictured here; PLUS there is a shop in distant Beaumont, Book Stan II, that is a TREASURE TROVE of old Citadel minis...they even have Gorkamorka. Old Captain John & I are hoping to make a Spring Pilgrimage.

Hi DeafNala, somehow I missed this post. Lovely painting as usual, I really like the bases and the mushrooms, did you use green stuff? Some great concepts here

Thanks, Damien! I'm glad you like the little Rogues.
I use Plumbers Epoxy for the bases, most of my mushrooms, scrolls, et al; it's similar to Milliput. The little mushrooms on some of the bases are the plastic one's that came with the 6th Edidtion G.W. Night Goblins.

Nice!

I joined a Mordheim league and painted up a bunch of my OOP Ork and Goblin figs as my gang.  The end result people demanded I paint all 150 plus unpainted goblins...  We only played Mordheim once or twice.  Perhaps if I hosted...  Anyway I'm sorta gaming group less, don't have a big and nice enough place to host, and apparently I have to start thinking Lead Painter League style...  Not sure I like the super super golbins but I like the idea of an O&G warband.  New O&G models previewed today on GW's website.

Gotta run and get offline...
