Early 2018, I wanted to do a goblin detachment. The reasoning was threefold: a) A buddy gave me a goblin battalion to build as he didn't like the minis. And frankly, he's right. The early Mantic goblins are abysmal. The stuff I see on the interweb from these days is much better, but the early … Continue reading The curious case of my goblin detachment (1)
