Proxies for Blackblood Goblin Spearmen (Leviathan?)
« on: February 22, 2010, 05:47:02 PM »
I'm searching for some proxies for Blackblood Goblin Spearmen.  Came across a suggestion of Leviathan Goblin Spearmen.  I can't find a great picture of them though.  Best I can find is an eBay auction with a blurry pic.

1) Can anyone point me to a better picture?

2) Does anyone have a better/alternate suggestion for the spearmen?

3) If anyone out there has the actual Excelsior sculpts and is willing to part with them I would love to talk about working something out!!!

just realized that half of the leviathan sculpts have a shield...bummer...

same problem with this one from hasslefree, but the sculpt would work otherwise I think...

Hasslefree are definitely a good choice and I am pretty sure that the shields are seperate to the figures. Kev used to do the sculpting for a lot of the Warzone and Chronopia figures.

Can't help you with a pic of the Leviathan goblins though; I've got all of my figures in storage right now and can't remember where I've put those.

I do like those Hasslefree sculpts....but I can't find that goblin for less than $5 per figure.  Getting 2 full units of spearmen (26 minis) would be awfully expensive.  

MAybe these would do (from Ral Partha Europe site):

but I'd really like to find ones that look chronopia-ish...

yep those might just do it.  I'm just not sure how big they are...some of those old Ral Partha minis are pretty tiny.

I don't know the scale. These are Heartbreaker's (I think they're still available by Ral Partha Europe). They should be "standard Goblin size".
