Hello, everybody. I've got some questions about Goblins! I ask because I'm thinking about making a goblin force, and I tend to like writing fluff and so forth before doing so. But before I do that, I'd like to ask some questions so that I can gain more knowledge of the goblins in Warhammer Fantasy, or possible story ideas of which I'd like to include in my own homebrew fluff.
Firstly, I assume that goblins can easily became leaders as well, especially amongst goblins? I assume that's what the whole Little Waaagghhh! is all about.
Secondly, assuming the first to be true, is it often or not that a Great Shaman can become the leader of a Waaagghhh! or tribe, rather than a warboss? Amongst either goblins or orks, really. How likely would this be, and would it be way too odd to have a goblin shaman as a leader?
Thirdly, what different 'styles' of goblins can you imagine?
My idea was to sort of have the Shaman as having attracted goblins from far and wide... all forest goblins, but all with their own unique styles. As my force would likely be at least a few hundred goblin models, I figured I could do maybe fifty as one style, fifty as another, and so forth. Maybe one particular tribe carried around severed enemy heads or had different tattoos or some such, while different tribes might use wooden or metal shields of different shapes and sizes, and also with different symbols. So it would be sort of a coalition of many goblins founded under one shaman.
