THE CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT

Lord Vassago doesn't have any cavalry in his army, but he does have a large pack of wolves at his disposal. Back in 1983 there wasn't a lot of choice of wolf figures that I was aware of, the suggested Ral Partha figures were a bit small, but these Minifigs lupines from the Mythical Earth range fit the bill . I really like their long snouts.


It took me a while to source 30 (some very kind donations from fellow bloggers helped), but now I have amassed another 30 with the original goblin riders, so I must get those finished at some stage.

  1. I am, quite literally, speechless. It's like they've walked straight out of some 1970s eastern european puppet film version of Sergei Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf and on to your wargames table. Your commitment to period accuracy pays off once again.

    1. Thanks Zhu. Interestingly the original tiny goblin riders with hoods, pointy ears and wicker shields were later copied by Citadel (presumably the Perrys) and appeared as Night goblin foot skirmishers.

    1. Thanks Mr. Mouse. The wolfriders aren't part of this project but will be appearing in some Prehammer goodness I have planned.
