    INCREMENTS OF WAR (or, the stages of completion):
    500 Point NIGHT GOBLIN ARMY

    HISTORY IN THE MAKING (where I will catalogue a brief historical comment on the completed units):

    Desolation. That is the best word to describe the Eight Peaks. Desolation. In the rugged peaks of the Worlds Edge Mountains only death can be found, but somehow many races of the Old World struggle to retain power in this region. The secret is that inside of the mountains lies great wealth from a Dwarven civilization that has outlived itself.

    Skarsnik, an unusually smart and tactically sound goblin, has managed to gain control of the region, and was even the self-proclaimed ruler of the Dwarf Hold of Karak Eight Peaks for a time. Until Belegar Ironhammer returned to claim his birthright. Although Belegar currently holds the hold, it is a constant balance of power between him, Skarsniks horde, and the devious skaven known as Queek Headtaker.

    It was on the eve of yet another assault against the hold that the destiny of Skarsnik and his tribes would change forever. Sitting in his command cave, Skarsnik indulged in a mushroom brew that had been delivered by Skeezer's Red Moon tribe. Of course, Skarsnik knew this to be a bribe, mostly to keep him from having to send any of his tribe to help support the constant assaults of the Eight Peaks. But the gold was coming in, as were a variety of other tokens from the tribe. As Skarsnik indulged in the brew, in the back of his mind he knew he would have to put the chieftan in his place soon, lest he assume that the wealth he had truly belonged to him and the Red Moons, but this would be a matter for another day. Eventually drifting off to sleep, Skarsnik awoke in a cold sweat to the presence of another, one whom he did not immediately recognize but at the same time seemed so familiar. Immediately slashing out with a hidden dagger, the blade went right through the figure as if it was not there at all.

    "Who are you to enter my domain?" demanded Skarsnik. As soon as the words were out of his mouth, the figure erupted into a greenish flame that lit up the cave. Behind the figure, squatted a massive wyvern, surrounded by the same ethereal flame. "I am the resurrected. The re-incarnation of Gork and Mork, I am he that you will be commanded by!" The cave shook with the force of the last words, and though Skarsnik was not easily rattled, he found himself cowering before the presence of this immense being. "What would you have of me?"

    And with this, in the middle of the night Skarsnik gathered all of his forces and marched on the Stonefist Clan, to retrieve a chest that held so much value that the Gods Gork and Mork would send such a creature of immense power. Although the members of the Stonefist Clan put up a valiant effort to defend their keep, the overwhelming numbers of the force Skarsnik bore down upon them with was too much, and the hold quickly fell. This victory would be short lived, however, as Belegar Ironhammer had finally caught up to them and quickly engaged the army in a counter attack, scattering much of Skarniks Horde and sending him fleeing. But it was enough time for Skarsnik to discover that the chest had been carried south, and he knew just the tribe that he could go to in order to get appropriate reinforcements, the Red Moons.

    I especially like the mushroom man. I saw the fig and wanted it but then I decided not to buy it....know I'll have to think about it again!

    SKEEZER - NIGHT GOBLIN BIG BOSS

    Skeezer, Night Goblin Big Boss and Chieftan of the Red Moon Tribe
    Skeezer became the Chief of the Red Moon tribe through both cunning and luck. He was foraging in the lower peaks of the worlds edge mountains for mushrooms to help soothe his brothers (Snotgit) outbursts of magical energy, when he fell into a deep dark hole. In this hole he discovered a long abandoned dwarf hall, that showed signs of a great battle. In the center of the great hall lay the skeletal remains of a huge dragon, but more importantly, underneath these remains was a huge pile of collected treasure. Always one for moving up in the world, Skeezer knew that he had to somehow use this finding to his advantage, and so he payed a visit first to the current leader of the Red Moon Tribe, Bagnab. Bagnab saw great potential to take this treasure from Skeezer and just as he was about to order his death, Snotgit had one of his typical magical outbursts, causing enough commotion for Skeezer to escape. At this point, Skeezer felt that he had no other option but to gain the support of the most powerful Night Goblin of the Worlds Edge Mountains, Skarsnik. Paying Skarsnik a huge sum of gold, Skarsnik agreed to supply troops to Skeezer in return for the loyalty of the Red Moon Tribe to Skarsnik if Skeezer was able to take control of the tribe. Agreeing to these terms, Skeezer set off with a small contingent of night goblin levies to destroy Bagnab. Reaching the small village where Bagnab resided, Skeezer assaulted Bagnabs tent and easily overthrew the Chieftan. Though the remainder of the tribe was at first reluctant to accept Skeezer's leadership, he convinced them to move the village to his cave at spearpoint, and they soon accepted him as the new Chief. Returning to his secure hold, Skeezer has begun carving himself a small empire, absorbing some of the local goblin tribes into his own, to include the 'Ard Cap's and the Yellow Tooths. Since becoming the Chieftan of the Red Moon Tribe, he has taken the tribe on many raids into Imperial and Dwarven territories at the behest of Skarsik himself. Of late, the tribe is having a lot of encounters with a particular band of Dwarfs who seem to be travelling directly through the Red Moon territory.

    SKEEZER, BIG BOSS (with Great Axe, Light Armour) - 36 Points (VOTE AT CMON)

    Re: Night Goblin Army

    Wow, that's an excellent looking army. I'm impressed of the amount of details you have put into those miniatures - usually Gobbos tend to be much more rushed due to being a mass army.

    Well done, I'll wait for more.

    SNOTGIT - NIGHT GOBLIN SHAMAN

    Snotgit, Night Goblin Shaman and brother of Skeezer
    Snotgit was abnormal from birth. Even as a young goblin, he would have strange outbursts of magical energy that would destroy things around him. Only the magical mushrooms found in the worlds edge mountains are able to control this. It was because of one of these magical outbursts that his brother Skeezer was able to escape with his life and return to claim leadership of the Red Moon tribe. Now, Skeezer keeps Snotgit a steady supply of mushrooms in order to better control the outbursts. Snotgit is also gifted with the ability to make a magical mushroom potion that throws the simplest of goblins into an uncontrollable frenzy.

    Re: Night Goblin Army

    I share your opinion, the Cave Troll looks great together with the other one. Keep it. Paint it.

    I'd say those Speargobbos look promising, but there is really a lot to be done. I love the Snotling with the spear though.

    As always, excellent work mousekiller. I'm a long time lurking fan, and I thought it's high time I chimed in with some praise. I can't wait to see more of your work on these.
