AHPC9: Goblin Auxiliary Troops

I'm working through my main AHPC project (15mm DAK) but must admit to being challenged by the shift in scale and I'm still trying to paint them like they are 28mm figs - thus I'm not progressing as hoped. Time for a quick and dirty, morale boosting side project!
(Dux: I promise that all shields in this unit were hand painted)
This is a small Goblin scout unit intended for Dragon Rampant. They are older LOTR Moria Goblins with Oathmark Shields swapped in.  I've based them in an experimental 3-2-1 formation for dioramic effects and to reduce figure movement, while still allowing the exact number of casualties to be removed.

These will join my longer term "Romanised Orcs" project which is a bit of fun and may see some other units during the challenge. Orci Invicti!

Thats 6 x 28mm figs = 30 points added to my paltry 2 points thus far!

This AHPC entry is here:


  1. Nice work! I've been looking into the 3-2-1 basing myself for the upcoming Rebels & Patriots release from Osprey. I think its a great idea and looks pretty decent too.

    1. Thanks Nate! Looking forward to trying them out on the table

  2. The bases are beautiful and bring out the figurines, especially the red!

  3. I use the 1,2,3 basing for my 10mm Pikeman’s Lament. It’s very good, you will not regret it.

  4. Splendid work Paul and I love the basing. That gives me an idea for my Curtgeld.

    1. Thanks Michael - I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
