Yeah, you read that right, another one. :wink:

While John is working away on more dwarfish goodness, I couldn't resist the temptation to ask one of my sculpting idols, the great Kev Adams, to do some of his iconic goblins for the range, kitted out in landsknecht gear. And they look pretty fantastic, it looks like Kev really strived to make these some of his finest goblins yet, surpassing all expectations.

There are 4 poses to start with.
There are 6 heads that fit all 4 bodies.
3 of the bodies have interchangeable weaponhands (spear, halberd and two swordvariants) and a separate shield.
The 4th is armed with a handgun and will receive more options after moulding.

More detailed pictures showing the possible combinations will follow when I have them in hand, but I couldn't wait to show you these pictures Kev sent to me.





There are a few more pictures of unassembled bits on the blog: http://whiteknightminiatureimperium.blogspot.com/2011/05/first-pictures-of-landsknecht-goblin.html

did you win the lottery or something a year ago? You know most of us just buy miniatures instead of asking our favoured sculptors to work to our specific tastes.  lol

To be honest, I don't dare to think about the average cost per figure, all included. I can only hope I will be able to make some back from selling a few to the lot of you. ;D

I dunno, with the GW prices on the rise you might be on to something here.  ::)

Wow!  :o

You need to tell us if/when you cast some up for sale. I know a bunch of Mordheim players that would love this stuff!

I really like these as well, along with the dwarf models. I could find many uses for both ranges in many games I play. Definitely interested in making some purchases here when/if they become available.

These are very nice, they're also for inclusion in your Landsknecht fantasy force like your Orcs, I presume? The loose hands look like they may be a bit fiddly to use but otherwise the head and weapon swaps allow for very easy diversity!

If I hadn't chosen a solidly medieval setting and invested in it, I would be hassling you for these. They are  :-* :-*

As a Goblin Guy of long standing, all I've got to say is "OH BABY! THOSE ARE OH-SO-COOL!"...I'm mildly impressed. If you're going to go to the lengths you did with your SPECTACULAR Dwarves, I'll have to water-proof my keyboard in anticipation of a heavy drool attack. BEAUTIFULLY SILLY STUFF!

Beautiful stuff, White Knight! There's a whole Renaissance fantasy serie to be made! I think they could work perfectly with Foundry's orcs (maybe someone said the same thing before...).

Only indirectly, unless you count the reaction on the blog. :)

Perhaps not as extensive as the vast plans I still have for the dwarfs, but there will definitely be more variants.

Well, if you don't trust the tag and socket for the hands, you could always use them as a guide to pin the bits. :)

I will definitely announce it here when they become available to the public. :)
