[Archive] Options for Hobgoblin Cavalry, Infantry?

jbrown1214:

So, I’m getting more and more interested in fielding a Tamurkhan-based Chaos Dwarf army (first as a subset of my own WoC, then a stand-alone). Unfortunately, GW doesn’t make models for the hobgoblin cavalry or infantry. Any ideas what I could use as stand-ins? Doesn’t necessarily have to be GW (probably better, as they probably would be much cheaper!)…I’d prefer the thinner/smaller versions as shown in the book vice the big-and-chunky, older-style models. Thanks!

LoTR Warg riders

Hobgoblin Cavalry, for now its worth holding off. With the new plastic wolves out now, FW is suppose to do Hobgoblin wolfriders.

Hobgoblin cutthroats, a good number of people have taken to converting them using Skaven, use a knife to remove the furry bits and then add goblin or gnoblar heads.

Time of Madness:

It will be interesting to see what FW does with the hobgoblin wolf riders. May be worth holding out until they are released.

If the wolf riders sell well you would think they would eventually do hobgoblins on foot.

Hi talked to a (GUY) at FW he said hobgoblin infantry would price out at $5 a miniature so the idea was scraped. Since you would need 40 to a 100 minis.

Ouch...guess I'm looking elsewhere! Good thing, because the siren call of ForgeWorld can get REALLY expensive (and the missus is starting to wise up!)

What sort of timeframe are we talking about? (Rough guestimation)

Zanko:

What about these guys:

Vendel

Otherworld

Heresy

I like them all much more than the GW Goblins or Hobgoblins! :cheers

These are nice, altough they hold their spears in a strange fashion.

fattdex:

i would convert them personally using gobbo wolfrider legs, wargames factory orc torsos, beastmen ungor arms (clip fur and putty on some sleeves), 40k Fenrisian wolves and your choice of heads (I think actually mantic ghould heads with noses greenstuffed on might look cool). Bit of work but fun.

delivern:

I just use goblin spider riders from the old box set. You can get your hands on them very cheap since very few O&G players field them.

:hat off Most certainly. Saw that movie in the cinema a month ago, really nice.

I like the Heresy goblin archers a lot; does anyone have experience with the company?

Zuh-Khinie:

I have a few heresy models, and without fail, they’ve all been good casts without too much flash or anything else. The original sculptor was an ex-gw employee, so scalewise they were awesome.

I must add though, that it’s been almost half a decade ago since I’ve ordered from them.

labrat:

Sorry- I couldn’t help adding this to this thread-

Zuh-Khinie:

Looks very chronopia-like… what brand is that?

The Odor:

Zuh: You mean Demons and Dragons Chronopia? I do agree.

Brand new line from a brand new company-
I am guessing that this line will start to become available through Gorgon Studios sometime in April.
I know this shouldn't be on this forum as it is not a GW product-
just with the discussion going down the Hobgoblin route and these being close I couldn't resist throwing him in.

100% reliable. Andy Foster who runs it is a good guy.
