Citadel's Preslotta Goblins - Progress


Preslotta Goblins - Update 1

Progress - a little aquisition, lots of basing goblins, a smidge of painting, and several happy autumn distractions like fixing my old Mordheim buildings, and printing and painting buildings for a small less damaged city, also paying some attention to a couple of trays of neglected NPC figures to populate cities and villages, ruined or otherwise.

Here's where I've got to on the gobbo's:

Gobbledigook from White Dwarf Personalities box set 1984 

Not just a goblin, The Goblin

Not based - he is still kept with the rest of the set in the box in the plastic liner celebrating the 50th issue of White Dwarf

Regiment of assorted goblins

Who made the list

Once a goblin like figure is named as a trollkin, a giak, a red orc, a gnoll or a lesser goblin it does

not become a goblin just because it was bundled into the C13 night goblin range.

Once a goblin is released as a goblin it does not become a gnome because its labled that way in the US catalog a few months later

If on the other hand it was released as a gnoll and it looks like a goblin and is unlike all the other gnolls then as far as I'm concerned its a goblin.

In other words it all comes down to personal perception, memory and general inability to accept change.
