Goblin Cavalry and Chariots
So ... what do goblins ride? Whatever I got!
I don't really need them to sit down, which is good because these figures probably would not bend that well. Still gobbies are small, so they will look fine in the standing cavlary stance.
I think these figures are supposed to be orcs, since they are a little larger than the
goblins. By being larger, they are eaiser to bend into a straddle of the mounts
and they will be about the same height as the standers.
But what about the chariots? Well, I am starting with a piece of thin card and cutting it into pieces about twice the base size of my goblins. About, not exactly. I don't imagine that goblins have great construciton process control.
Take the nice three-sided chariot and add some wheels. For theses, I am using plastic steampunk gears. They are intended for making jewelry, and come cheap in big bags of many many pieces.
Here they are on 1"x2" bases, attached to frogs using some spare cross-stitch floss
that SWMBO saves for me.
Here's the "right flank".
And the left flank.
So, if you can't tell which ones are the smaller and larger ones in this view ... or you are so overwhelmed by the splendorifious goblinness of the force that you don't care, they seem to make a good supplemental force for my goblin hordes.
