I am working on my backlog of miniatures to take creative breaks from my twilight kin main army, and pulled out my goblins I use for Dnd. They were my first miniatures ever and are in need of some major love, they don’t even have nice bases yet!
I also wanted to convert the weapons with stuff from my bits box as they mostly have bows to get more variety, so figured it would be cool to kill two birds with one stone and make a fun vanguard list!
What I currently have is 18 goblin models and one troll model. These models include a shaman (wiz), a goblin hero with sword and shield, goblin musician, a goblin commander with sword and bow, a goblin with larger staff (banner-esque) and bow, and 13 goblins with bows (4 different poses). Here is a pic of them, minus goblin musician.
So in vanguard terms I have a Wiz, a Blaggit, a Troll, two potential Biggits and 14 gobbos with undermined fate.
Here are some of my questions, if any more experienced player has time I’d love some help.
- I do want my list to be fun to play against as well as fun to play, so I wonder how many bows can I get away with while still being sportive? (5 spitter, rabble, biggits and luggits with bows?)
- I will be getting 4 spitters at least (1 of each pose) if not the full 5 to save my sanity. Would getting up to 5 rabbles with bows be too much?
- Would the staff goblin above be suitable for a luggit?
- Would leaving the quivers on after swapping out the bows be misleading?
- Should I do some heavier converting to get something like a sneak or wingit?
