Anyone know of some orcs on wolves/wargs that would go with the Oathmark goblins?    

 

 

If you wait long enough, the manufacturer all but confirmed that warg-riding gobbos are in the works.

Like how those turned out. Good to know the arms match with other kits so well.

A couple of the straightish armis might be slightly better if you sawed them then glued them right back together just to remove a mm or so.    But they're not bad.

 

Another scale question:

 

Is the GW Hobbit troll too big?   Do people like the ogres better?

I mean he's really big.  But GW's Tolkein line isn't exactly subject to scale creep.

 

Also "halfling thief" yields surprisingly few minis on reaper's search engine.

I've done the sawing thing with some GW human arms to put them on dwarves so it wouldn't be a big deal. I've also done some slightly wonky kit bashes from using various historical, Frostgrave and GW parts together. Once they're painted they don't look as awkward. Lately I've gotten more kits that matched better and with lots of variety so I'm considering ripping the arms off some of the worst.

 

What would you want to use the troll as? He looks almost small giant sized but everybody's got different ideas of how big things should be. I personally really like those Bones ogres. When I got them I didn't really even think about them. Then I painted one as a gift and got to like them. Considering getting more to make a usable sized unit for the games I play but it's way down on the may do list.

afaik, there are a couple of different troll sizes for GW's LotR lines. The first cave troll fit on a 40mm base and was a little bigger than those ogres. So I guess that troll is great if you're supposed to have a big troll.
