How have you converted the goblin men

They are made from Perry WotR bodies and the heads from the Hobbit warg-rider set.  The heads needed a little work to humanize them a bit (losing the pointy ears, e.g.) and a bit of sculpting to make them seem somewhat less 15th-century.  Since they're molded onto their own bases (in addition to the slottabases), they come up to man-height, or even a tad higher, which matches the description we find in the text, namely, that they are tall and straight-limbed, basically human in appearance, but with ugly, frightening faces and sallow complexions.  It appears there are two varieties of goblin-men: one more mannish, to be used as spies and thugs, and one more orkish, which serve in Saruman's armies.  These are meant to be the former, but I might eventually get around to doing the latter as well.



I agree, lovely conversions. And great painting too.

Thank you!
Now what is this whole life of mortals but a sort of comedy, in which the various actors, disguised by various costumes and masks, walk on and play each one his part, until the manager waves them off the stage?

Here are some "goblins." 









I love Moria Goblins.  I think they are the closest PJ came to canonical orcs: small, hideous, cunning, and surprisingly dangerous.  Strictly speaking, they shouldn't be in plate, but I think the design of the armor is very cool.  These will serve as the basic 'orcs' - in this case, orcs of the Misty Mountains - but I hope in time to convert some to resemble orcs of other regions (Dol Guldur is next on the list).  I keep painting more of these, so this isn't the last you'll see of them.
