Now, on with the goodies!
From left to right we have Veka (from Goblin Hero [Amazon | Mysterious Galaxy]), Jig (with Smudge!), Darnak (from Goblin Quest [Amazon | Mysterious Galaxy] and Goblin War [Amazon | Mysterious Galaxy]), and Golaka the chef (with her SPOON!).
These are the prototypes -- they're made of resin instead of metal, and are much lighter than I'm used to. There will be a few detail changes in the paint before they go on sale, which should happen later this year. Jig's spectacles will probably be a slightly different shade to help them stand out a little more. Overall, I think Garden Ninja has done a wonderful job.
Some of my favorite details:
- Veka's bedraggled book sticking out of her pouch
- Darnak is holding his pendant with the hammer of Silas Earthmaker
- The unidentifiable stains on Golaka's knives
- Jig's boots, complete with flames!
- Also, notice what Jig's standing on?
A few people commented yesterday that Golaka didn't look quite how they imagined. That makes sense, actually -- we all visualize the characters a little differently. Also, in addition to being Officially Licensed Goblin Collectibles (grin), these should also work for someone who just needs a few new miniatures for their role playing game.
I'll post as soon as these are available for ordering.
So, what do you think?
