Okumarts Classic Hobgoblins and Goblins

Darkfast: Goblins and Hobgoblins
Paper Minis on DTRPG
$2.50
Darkfast Classic Fantasy Set Three: Goblins and Hobgoblins

I've just picked up these paper minis for $2.50 (-USD that's £1.66 in real GB money).  When I finally run that low level old-school campaign, these goblins and hobgoblins will be an essential adversary.

Like with other Okumarts products - the zip file contains a layered PDF with double-sided trim-to-measure figures and comprehensive document use and assembly instructions

The layers provide access to six different colours of 6 unique hobgoblin and seven goblin designs, with a bonus figure layer of 10 bonus humanoid figures. 

I haven't printed mine as yet, but Okumarts provide plenty of photos of the figures in use on their Tumblr page (okumarts.tumblr.com).

The hobgoblins will please DMs who want to represent their Hobgoblins as portrayed in the earliest AD&D Monster Manual and illustrations from the B modules.  Those orange skinned beefy meanies had an aspect of oriental ronin-samurais or Mongolian Huns.  The goblins, however, are both retro-simple -they are naughty cowl-clad serfs- and yet modern, like those depicted Pathfinder rules.  The latter are a fun, animated bunch of hoodlums (perhaps how the goblins in The Hobbit should have been).


Hunnish hobgoblins and ...


...naughty little, hoody-wearing, vicious goblins!

In summary: stylish, slick art, well-presented, resourceful, cheeky, good value.

  1. I picked these up yesterday in addition to your modular dungeon tiles. Love the art on both and they should work well together.
