Default Kromlech Soviet Goblins.

I've always been baffled by why they went with a Soviet theme with their orks and goblins, but they do look good.

I always felt the orks had a german thing to it.



I mean, that guys hold a MG-42 for gorks (or morks) sake.

The fact they broke that theme for there goblins says something interesting give that A: orks typically beat up and look down at goblins in games where the two species exist in a setting, B: communism is about the underclasses rising up and overthrowing the powerful. C the soviet union was communist, and D: the soviet union and Germany HATED each other.

They may just be making models with no game, but you can tell a story here and i find that very, very interesting.

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

Good sculpts as usual, plenty of character for Ork players to consider.

I understand completely why soviet fits with orks. Their attrition style of warfare during WWII is more in line with orks than the german high-tech blitzkrieg.

unless we are talking about the speed freaks - they would play a little bit like the blitzkrieg.
