Forest Goblin army, photodump


I felt it was time to post an army spread of what I have painted for my Forest Goblins or Spiderfangs as they are actually called nowadays...

So here we have a photodump of my army...


























One of my old-school metal forest goblins, the clans shaman.














The army clocks in at 1900pts at the moments, so Im up to almost 2000pts.
Maybe I could ad ether a small unit of spider riders at 100pts, some endless spells or maybe start looking at the battalion rules.



++ *Pitched Battle* 2,000 (Destruction - Gloomspite Gitz) [1,900pts] ++

+ Leader +

Webspinner Shaman on Arachnarok Spider [280pts]: General - Spiderfang

Webspinner Shaman [80pts]

+ Behemoth +
Arachnarok Spider with Spiderfang Warparty [220pts]

+ Battleline +
Spider Riders [200pts]: 2x 5 Spider Riders, Bone Drummer, Spider Totem Bearers

Spider Riders [200pts]: 2x 5 Spider Riders, Bone Drummer, Spider Totem Bearers

Spider Riders [100pts]: 5 Spider Riders

Forest goblin Arachnaroks



Here we have my Arachnarok sisters in all their glory.

I decided to glue the goblins on small bases to be able to field them on foot if I wanted and the howdah is not glued on ether. This is for maximum variation, it might be that it will be to flimsy and will fall of in midgame but its a test.

I just live the image of a big spider full of small goblins greeting anyone venture to close with a hail of stones and arrows.
I would love even more that the spiders would count as a transport, dismounting a unit of forest goblins on a strategic place on the gaming table, but thats just wishthinking...













Here we have the spiders without crew and the goblins are instead running on the ground.
I really wish for GW to release proper Forest goblins on foot one day with rules but is a wishthinking that I dont think will happen.




More pictures on just the big Arachnaroks can be see in the work in progress post for these.
