INCREMENTS OF WAR (or, the stages of completion):
500 Point NIGHT GOBLIN ARMY

HISTORY IN THE MAKING (where I will catalogue a brief historical comment on the completed units):

Desolation. That is the best word to describe the Eight Peaks. Desolation. In the rugged peaks of the Worlds Edge Mountains only death can be found, but somehow many races of the Old World struggle to retain power in this region. The secret is that inside of the mountains lies great wealth from a Dwarven civilization that has outlived itself.
Skarsnik, an unusually smart and tactically sound goblin, has managed to gain control of the region, and was even the self-proclaimed ruler of the Dwarf Hold of Karak Eight Peaks for a time. Until Belegar Ironhammer returned to claim his birthright. Although Belegar currently holds the hold, it is a constant balance of power between him, Skarsniks horde, and the devious skaven known as Queek Headtaker.

It was on the eve of yet another assault against the hold that the destiny of Skarsnik and his tribes would change forever. Sitting in his command cave, Skarsnik indulged in a mushroom brew that had been delivered by Skeezer’s Red Moon tribe. Of course, Skarsnik knew this to be a bribe, mostly to keep him from having to send any of his tribe to help support the constant assaults of the Eight Peaks. But the gold was coming in, as were a variety of other tokens from the tribe. As Skarsnik indulged in the brew, in the back of his mind he knew he would have to put the chieftan in his place soon, lest he assume that the wealth he had truly belonged to him and the Red Moons, but this would be a matter for another day. Eventually drifting off to sleep, Skarsnik awoke in a cold sweat to the presence of another, one whom he did not immediately recognize but at the same time seemed so familiar. Immediately slashing out with a hidden dagger, the blade went right through the figure as if it was not there at all.

“Who are you to enter my domain?” demanded Skarsnik. As soon as the words were out of his mouth, the figure erupted into a greenish flame that lit up the cave. Behind the figure, squatted a massive wyvern, surrounded by the same ethereal flame. “I am the resurrected. The re-incarnation of Gork and Mork, I am he that you will be commanded by!” The cave shook with the force of the last words, and though Skarsnik was not easily rattled, he found himself cowering before the presence of this immense being. “What would you have of me?”

And with this, in the middle of the night Skarsnik gathered all of his forces and marched on the Stonefist Clan, to retrieve a chest that held so much value that the Gods Gork and Mork would send such a creature of immense power. Although the members of the Stonefist Clan put up a valiant effort to defend their keep, the overwhelming numbers of the force Skarsnik bore down upon them with was too much, and the hold quickly fell. This victory would be short lived, however, as Belegar Ironhammer had finally caught up to them and quickly engaged the army in a counter attack, scattering much of Skarniks Horde and sending him fleeing. But it was enough time for Skarsnik to discover that the chest had been carried south, and he knew just the tribe that he could go to in order to get appropriate reinforcements, the Red Moons.

SNOTGIT - NIGHT GOBLIN SHAMAN
Snotgit, Night Goblin Shaman and brother of Skeezer
Snotgit was abnormal from birth. Even as a young goblin, he would have strange outbursts of magical energy that would destroy things around him. Only the magical mushrooms found in the worlds edge mountains are able to control this. It was because of one of these magical outbursts that his brother Skeezer was able to escape with his life and return to claim leadership of the Red Moon tribe. Now, Skeezer keeps Snotgit a steady supply of mushrooms in order to better control the outbursts. Snotgit is also gifted with the ability to make a magical mushroom potion that throws the simplest of goblins into an uncontrollable frenzy.

That was quite some read... You have combined great models with awesome painting and inspiring fluff. The outcome is, of course, one of the best night goblin armies I've ever seen. I hope you'll add more models to it soon.

THE RED MASS

The Red Mass, 20 Night Goblins armed with bows
These goblins are the remainder of able bodied goblins from the Red Moon tribe. Skeezer has organized them into an unorganized rabble of miscreants armed with bows and arrows. Though they are fairly ineffective in battle, they often serve as enough of a distraction for Skeezer to get his main raiding force, Skeezers Pride, into action.

Very nice work! But..did I see a huge mold line on the Fanatics hat?!? In the pic from his back left side it appears so...but there's no way you paint and base so expertly and leave mold lines, so I'm confused...

BUHRDUR'S BASHERS

Buhrdur's Bashers, 3 Hill Trolls
The Bashers, as the Red Moon tribe has begun calling these trolls, is a fitting name for such a nefarious group. Either in combat or not, they seem to be bashing something, whether an enemy troop or a stray night goblin. Skeezer knows the value of these trolls, and so accepts the occasional death of one of his own to keep them happy. Part of a much larger tribe of trolls, the Bashers (Bhurdur, Bhargur, and Bhurbar) have been annexxed to Skeezer by Skarsnik for his years of dedicated service, and for constant payments of gold.

THE ARDCAPS

The 'Ard Caps, 3 Snotling Swarms
Through a vision detailed by Snotgit, Skeezer launched in expedition into a side tunnel of his hold to find what Snotgit described as "Mushroom Spirits". After three days of marching through the darkness, the expedition was ambushed by a tribe of snotlings who attempted to scare them off. Not realizing that who they ambushed was only the advance party, Skeezer's main body soon arrived and the battle was easily won. Imprisoning the remaining snotlings, Skeezer threatened to put them to death unless they showed him these Mushroom Spirits. Another half a day trip deeper into the tunnel resulted in the finding of the remainder of the snotling tribe and three chained giant mushrooms, who seemed to possess a life of their own. Skeezer, always the opportunist, offered the leader of the tribe, Snigit, the option to join his tribe or die. Snigit, knowing what a good bargain is, promptly agreed. During battle, Snigit and his tribe herd these mushroom spirits against the enemy. Before battle, Snotgit harvests them for a small mushroom cap that grows off of their backs but is the key ingredient in his magic mushroom potion.

GNASHERS

Gnashers, 1 Squig Herd
Given the name due to the razor sharp teeth of squigs, the squigs of the Yellow Tooth tribe have become an integral portion of Skeezers army. Since defeating the leader of the Yellow Tooth, Springer, in single combat (that is another story), this herd has earned its mettle in quite a few skirmishes, acting as a razor sharp speed bump for the brunt of the army. Skeezer hopes to corrall more of the wild squigs that roam the caves of the Yellow Tooth tribe and add them to this force.

SQUIG HERD (includes 2 Night Goblins and 3 Squigs) - 30 POINTS (VOTE AT CMON)







The Dark Sheep: Well, almost done with posting what is done. Need to do the squig hoppers and that should be it for a bit - and this was only 750 points. Unbelievable how many gobbos you can get for only 750 points. Glad Vamps are a bit more expensive...[/align]

SPRINGER'S SPRINGERS

Springers Springers, 5 Squig Hoppers
Springers Springers, once the elite of the elite of the Yellow Tooth Tribe, are proving their worth in the Red Moon Tribe. After Springers humiliating defeat to Skeezer (a non-hopper), the frequently intoxicated Springers Springers agreed to serve Skeezer in the same capacity that they served there former master. This may also be in some small part due to a certain potion that Snotgit was experimenting with (on them, unbeknownst to them) and there newfound addiction for this potion that, conveniently, only Snotgit can provide - through Skeezer, of course.

5 SQUIG HOPPERS - 75 POINTS (VOTE AT CMON)







Disciple of Nagash: Thanks mate. Though to be fair, I think the undead are much harder to paint then these simple gobbos...

Maelstrom: Thank you. I like the fluff part of it the most I think, it really helps me get into the character of each unit...

Dark Sheep: That was one of the first big movement trays I did. I have done a few others since (I am contemplating one for the Crypt Bats now), but that one still has to be my favorite. Originally I did it for the Squig Herd, until I was corrected that Squig Herds are not skirmishers, but hoppers are. The I HAD to paint up the hoppers.[hr]
