That’s it! Done, dusted, out of the way! I’ve finished
painting all my spurious fantasy figures that have lurked in a box in the attic
for what seems like an eternity.
The final batch consisted of 20 Goblins produced
by Mantic that must have been bought from a bring-and-buy stall sometime in the
past that I have no recollection of. I have no prior experience of Mantic
figures and I think they are OK’ish. Not as well sculpted or animated as GW
figures. I think they are over clothed and/or armoured, and I’m disappointed
with the armament options; a few axes or clubs could have been included rather
than just sword arms. On the plus side, Mantic are apparently significantly
cheaper than the overpriced GW products (but as these were second-hand figures,
this is not a consideration here). Anyway these Goblins can now join my ‘Bag
Guys’ Kings of War army, bringing the points total to the 2,000 points target.
