North Star has started to release the plastic and metal miniatures designed to accompany the forthcoming Oathmark fantasy battle rules from Osprey Games. The new Goblins are a new take on old school designs.
These plastic, multi-pose miniatures are deliberately designed to reflect the aesthetics of the fantasy art of the 1980s. Closer to the original intentions of the Tolkein era, these goblins have a more eastern look than others and come with a host of extras to allow for some individual detailing.
The contents of each box allow gamers to create 30 figures, which is a sizable regiment or two smaller companies. There are a number of metal miniatures that compliment the range, plus foes in the shape of some similarly retro-new Dwarves and rumours of Elves on the way.
These are great miniatures for those looking for something different and a fitting prelude to the arrival of the eagerly anticipated rules system.
