I really like the Brood Slaves.
I always liked the look of Broo from Runequest, and I had the Citadel ones from when they were Runequest figures not Chaos Beastmen. In particular they grabbed my imagination because so much of my fantasy influence was Tolkien-esque, but the Broo were something completely unrelated to that source, and looked great.

Need to get some painted up ASAP.

(Commercial) New Fantasy from Crusader Miniatures.

Now the Crusader goblins have been out for a while, does anyone know how they compare in size to say the 28mm Crusader Dark Ages? I am assuming as they are badged as goblins they are smaller in stature? I really like the figures apart from them not having helmets. I am hopeful there will be further releases of packs with helmets?  :)

Andrew Taylor has also painted some of the Brood Slaves, though he took a bit more time. He's also painted some Ogres as Fire Giants for our Frostgrave games:

Mark'll do more if sales warrant it, so far these new Fantasy figures have been really well received so I think we'll see more.

The "unclutteredness" of these miniatures is really refreshing - lots of scope for freehand! Very nice!

Here's a quick snap of the Goblin leader alongside a viking hersir from Crusader.

Nice; this makes the goblins just about the right size, but the oger-like types too small to work as convincing Olog-Hai.

A shame, because I really like the models... ;)

I wouldn't have them as Olog-hai, I agree. Olog-hai should be much more bestial and savage.

The Ogres have a real early fantasy feel about them. Just big humanoid fighters. Bodyguards to an evil vizier, or a savage, giant hill tribe. Love them, so 'not Warhammer', not Middle-Earth either.

Thanks for the comparison picture. The goblins look to be the right size for Middle-Earth orcs. Just hoping some will be released with helmets.
