More Little Terrors or Goblins on the Loose 25 mm Painted Fantasy Miniatures

Goblins! Oh, they’re so cute! No, wait. No they’re not. In fact they are downright horrible diminutive monsters!

Goblins may be smaller than most fantasy races, but they certainly make up for it in their demeanor. None of these fellows are going to win any popularity awards.

Their primary weapon of choice is a nasty little sword. But this band of goblins also uses fire as a weapon. The torches they carry will light a fire under any party of adventurers unlucky to cross paths with the goblins.

Armor is rather piecemeal and consists mostly of metal plates woven into their clothing along with leather bindings on arms and legs. They embellish their clothing with the bones of defeated enemies. The large grins on their faces attest to the blood lust they feel toward their enemies.

Once again, these 25-mm scale goblin miniatures are a reminder that size is not the only indicator of danger when it comes to encounters that your player characters may face in your fantasy role-playing campaign world or table top war game.

Orc Archers in Leather Armor 28mm Painted Fantasy Miniatures
Filed under: Fantasy, 25-28 mm, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 7:48 am

Orcs!”(or “Orks!” if you prefer.)

The very name instills fear in many a denizen of a fantasy world. Some may call them brutish, unintelligent and simply monsters. But Orcs often form their own societies (frequently not all that different in basic interaction from humans and others). On the battlefield, they make formidable opponents.

Here is a trio of Orc archers as example. Their large, muscular bodies allow them to wield very strong bows with proficiency.

These warriors wear an assortment of simple (some may say crude) clothing and armor. Most is made from leather, with some metal studding. There are some bits of metal plate and chainmail incorporated into their outfits for added protection.

Their language may sound guttural and animal-like to many, but there is no doubt that there exists a developed intelligence behind their reddish eyes.

In most fantasy worlds, Orcs are treated simply as low level opponents.  But some players choose to incorporate Orcs into their parties of adventurers as Player Characters and NPCs. Whatever your preference, Orcs add to the spice of life in many fantasy role-playing games and to the battlefields of table top war games including Warhammer Fantasy™.

Men At Arms Fantasy Soldiers Painted Miniature Figures

Men at arms are professional soldiers who are prepared to fight for their liege or patron. Here are a couple of examples.

Our first soldier is outfitted with a combination of plate mail and chainmail armor. He also possesses a helmet and round shield for additional protection. He is armed with a sword.

The second warrior is similarly protected with platemail and scale mail along with a helmet. His main weapon is a longbow, but he also carries a longsword sheathed at his side for close in combat.

Fighters like these form the basis of many castle or city guards. They can be found throughout medieval fantasy game campaigns.

A malevolent intelligence peers out through the red eyes of this winged horror. Perched atop a stone outcropping, the gargoyle seems to be carefully watching his intended victim.

Despite the animal-like body, there is a distinct aura of deep intelligence here. Sure, there are the wicked fangs and sharp talons ready to tear apart his opponent.

But there is more than just animal cunning. Which makes the gargoyle all that more dangerous!

Dark Elf Wizard Conjuring With Staff Fantasy Miniature
Filed under: Fantasy, 25-28 mm
Posted by: G R @ 9:59 am

Arcane winds whip about this elven sorcerer, tossing his hair and robes. As he calls upon dark powers, he holds a jewel-encrusted magical staff in his left hand. The staff is topped with an evil skull casting and acts as a focus for the dark magics. He also wields a nasty dagger in his other hand.

The wizard wears plate mail armor for protection beneath his robes. Various pouches and scrolls hang from belts, each containing more magical components and weapons. He wears a greenish medallion around his neck that might be of Cthulhu origin!

Here is a powerful opponent ready to confront the adventures in your fantasy campaign. A nice casting that captures the malevolence of the character.
