This pair shows off an “Oldhammer” Warhammer Goblin Unit made up of 2nd-3rd Edition models, sculpted by Kev Adams. I bought and painted these figures long, long ago and recently found them lurking in the bottom of an old Chessex figure case.
It didn’t take much to clip off the old GW cavalry bases and cut some slotta holes in some 40mm rounds, and then rebase the pair. I then touched them up a little and they were ready to join the 21st Century.
“Old figures have more character” is often bandied around for a lot of reasons, sometimes as an excuse for poor sculpting or dodgy casting, but I think these figures really illustrate that statement in all of the right ways.
What was also pretty awesome was finding another three, riders and wolves in totally separate boxes put away for separate reasons within a few hours of each other the other day. All pretty much unpainted and found as I was looking through some other models (looking for a MIA DA Techmarine). Looks like I’ll have a full, small unit put together hopefully sooner than later.
