After all, I already had the Noif Hoider. ;-)
(In the end, I think some of the People of the Sand make better herdsfolk, so they're who I'm actually using for the job, but Bobby, above, had that title when he was first released.) Anyway, back to the beasties . . .
The models themselves are mostly resin castings, but with metal heads. They're big and somewhat odd looking, and that works well with the heroic scale and sci-fi setting of my usual gaming. They suffer from the usual casting construction problems: be ready to use the greenstuff. But . . . that's literally every multi-part metal or resin casting I've ever worked with. Honestly, even the injection molded stuff benefits from careful work around the seams.
But it's not really too difficult to clean up a seam. And once they're painted up the seem pretty much disappears.
So there you have it: Noifs! Or Noifen? Is Noif its own plural? Ah, who knows.
Just the same, glad to have you along for the ride. Please pardon the smell. You get used to it after a while. And watch where you step.
A murder of crows. A parliament of owls. A gaggle of geese. What possibly would it be for the Noif?ReplyDelete
Only birds seem to get the cool group nouns, so probably just a hoid of noiffen. But this leaves me thinking about what you would call a group of large predatory terrestrial birds. For reasons. "An inconvenience of axebeaks" perhaps? "A nuissance of moa"?Delete
Beautiful and impressive figures!ReplyDelete
Thank you Phil!Delete
Ah but a crash of Rhinos! So how about a "crush of Noifs" for when they get a bit too sociable? And I agree sand people.ReplyDelete
A crash of rhinos is pretty cool. Thanks for the new one.Delete
I could go with a crush of noifs. That's not too bad! :) Also, glad you both like them. :)Delete
