With my general apathy towards many figures deemed to be ‘Classic’ in the Oldhammer community the entire early/mid 80s C27 Goblin Fanatic range should be on my antipathy list.
Let’s face it, they were a pretty ropey set of miniatures. These figures were overly ‘cartoony’, crudely sculpted by anyone’s standards and the weapons they had were preposterous – just what was that giant boomerang all about?
That said I can’t bring myself to even consider disliking them even though they tick every box on my ‘everything wrong with miniatures in the 80s’ list.
I only own this one now (I used to own 4 of the ball and chain figures as fanatics in my Goblin regiments) but as much as I love them I can’t see myself buying anymore unless I spot a real bargain along the way…
