I was hoping you were going to sell that goblin as I would like one or two.

Zombiesmith has a few figures in their line, check out Sir Crumb and Hodgesley, some of their other, stranger, figures could be the start for conversions.
Through ZS Flytrap Factory has started a line of warrior rodents.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it anymore and what is it seems weird and scary.

Damn, the people painting for Rakham could really knock it out of the park. Good thread!

Imbrian arts goblins fit nicely as well.

Don't forget games workshop Gnoblars, metal and plastic. Alternative Armies had some armoured goblins but they seem out of stock for now. Reaper has an amazing Froud / Rackham / Bonner style troll. There was another company doing a few very basic armoured goblins but I cant remember the name.

Having seen the splendid Nightfolk Miniatures on this page yesterday I really fancy doing a Froud inspired game or two. I have really liked his illustration style (especially the goblins) for years and years.Can anyone suggest figures with a "Froudian" vibe to them?
Cheers
Alan

Being culturally ignorant I need some clarification - what is "Froudian" mean?

Gracias,

Glenn

It refers to the artist Brian (and Wendy) Froud who has a very distinctive style when it comes to fantasy, http://www.worldoffroud.com/.
