Some time ago Juan from Spain, same guy that sculpted Growler Creatures (that I reviewed earlier and use as my mangler squigs for Warhammer Fantasy) put pictures of his new goblin models on Da Warpath forum. Now I always had a weak spot for goblins and fancied another cave squig boss in my army, so looking at pictures of a Goblin Knight I decided I need to have that model. Since I have far too many goblin characters on foot already, I didn’t get ones that Juan sculpted, but they definitely look nice as well.
I paid 20 euro for the knight posted to UK by a signed for letter, so quite comparable to 15 quid you would have to pay for GW boss on cave squig made in Failcast (for 10 euro more however you get all 4 heroes). Package arrived swift and this time packed really well 🙂
Model itself is made in resin. It assembles really well, there is almost no mold lines and no flash to clear off. As for the model itself I simply love it. It looks much better than it did on pictures posted on the forum. I definitely like the armour. There are few alternative heads in the pack cast in metal, so you can use them later to personalise your other goblin models and there is a choice of two weapons for your knight- either cavalry lance or a sword. All parts are cast really well, detail was crisp and there were no air bubbles, so all good here as well. Assembly was easy, everything fits well, although little bit of green stuff might be needed to smooth over small gaps, but this is quite often the case with all multi-part models on the market.
All in all it was definitely money well spent and Goblin Knight will be appearing in my green army sooner or later !

Looking forward to seeing more goblin madness from that man 🙂
