ha ha Goblin archers!!!! you never thought you would have to worry about goblins with fire power now did you!! well you still don't really after all I can picture a group of elves sitting by a late night camp fire and a squad of goblins lets loos a volly on them. after it's over one elf looks at the others and says my the mosquitoes are bad this evening ... oh wait no it's just goblins. well it's a good thing I brought the Splinterwoods goblin off spray. LOL I LOVE my gobos !! I hope you do to!! oh ya the squad leader with the bent rusty sword is facing the wrong way .... but what are you going to do he's a goblin! probably beating the guy be hind him saying "no! no! no's! stupids da arra goes da ada ways!!!" though I did think it was cool that I made one of them holding the bow all gangsta style .... he's a gobo from da hood! or was it with a hood I can't remember ... oh well.

Because I like Goblins too despite being a dyed in the wool Elf player I was wondering whether a set of traditional adventurer minis, but in Goblin form might be fun. They could do service as character figures too, but somehow I'm finding the thought of dungeon crawling with a bunch of weedy Goblins really amusing this afternoon.
one of the hardest situations to negotiate in HeroQuest is the long narrow hall and a goblin with a bow at the end. surprisingly you can take a crud ton of damage if you roll badly on the d6 for movement. I've run games where the heroes foolishly try and charge down on the gobo who was two of the board lengths away... needless to say his friends abandoned him to his meaty fate! then they had to resurrect him at the apothecary after the mission hocking almost all the loot they picked up along the way. all because of a gobo, and a really bad decision. when they encountered that again in a much later mission the wizard fire-balled him to the face ... gobo by by.
what?? in a storage crate?? one of the best games of ALL TIME??? in a storage crate?? here's a shot of my desk!
still can't see it??? here how about now?
storage box .... uggh.... I'm going to have to come over and bust out my HeroQuest with all the mods and the extra towns and my double Decker game boards and now that I have the fat dragon easy dungeon set HeroQuest is going to get 3D baby!! when I get rich and famous(or at least rich anyway... ) I will dedicate an entire room in my house (and it wont be a small room) to HeroQuest!! It will be right next to Temporum Oblitus and Splinterwars... or what ever we decide to call the fantasy game!
storage box.... uuughh

It's from when I moved house Aaron. I was lucky enough to find a whole pile of incomplete sets and expansions for sale at a cheap price some time ago. From all the bits I was able to build up a complete set and the expansions plus a lot of spares left over. I consider myself extremely fortunate to own the game as these days it seems folk are asking collector type prices for any old tatty box load of bits,
Just roll the darn dice. Pixel pusher and proud of it.

cowboyleland: I thought I started a new thread late last night but apparently it glitched. I was asking if anyone had any leads on some female barbarians I could mod onto lion bodies to make D&D style lamia. DOH! I see the thread now.

shep: I think, I'll point him towards the Kickstarter with bravesirkevin's designs, once it goes live...

shep: He basically says that he loves the flat design for being a flat, easy to store design. However, he does not like building cardboard minis, so he's very glad that he can buy these MDF versions.

squirmydad: Found the video, uhm, I don't speak German but I think he likes them.

squirmydad: They are the official licensee for One Monk minis, they also sell designs from Antohammer and Brave Adventures.
Jan 22, 2020 13:52:08 GMT -9
shep: I found this website (https://flatpackforces.com/collections/fantasy) via a youtube video. They are offering 2D flat MDF-minis, and they have loads of One Monk designs up for sale. I was wondering, if they licensed the minis, or if this is art theft...
