Raising the Standard - the Goblin forces

Unit of Goblin Spearmen ('Sharpsticks') which are 20-strong, though the chap in front, who is a Heroquest Goblin with a broken weapon, will be the drummer for this little unit. The standard-bearer will get a flag - hopefully, a yellow and black one with a spider on it - to fly from his spear.

This will be the banner-bearer for my Goblin Rabble, again a flag flying from his spear is in order, this time a red one I think as the regiment has red shields. Mostly these are from Grom's Goblin Guard, an old Citadel regiment of Reknown. Not this guy though.

Various ne'er-do-wells that will serve as heroes, Shamen, musicians and whatnot, as well as some 'tall Goblins' that are the crews for the warmachines. Back in the 1980s, Citadel made warmachines crewed by Orcs; but now, even Mantic's rules have them crewed by Goblins. So the two 'Notlob's Orcish Bolt-throwers' will be painted up, with Orcs for crew, that will then stand on small bases as 'tall Goblins'.
