Minihammer: Night Goblin Squig Herd

 Here we go, the penultimate unit of my 2000 pts Orc and Goblin army for Minihammer. This one took a bit longer because I had to sculpt the Squigs. I did manage to find a few proxies on line but none that really looked like Warhammer Squigs, so I thought I would have a go at sculpting them myself. I am pretty happy with the outcome- bearing in mind that they are quite tiny- blown up here on the screen they look a bit rough around the edges but bear in mind they are only about 1-1.5cm tall and you will see that they look fine. 
The eagle-eyed will notice that their is only nine squigs in the herd- there were supposed to be three squig hoppers (goblins riding squigs) in the unit but I cocked up a bit when sculpting them as I forgot that in Warhammer Squigs go on 20mm bases, unlike Orcs who go in 25mm bases. This mistake basically meant I mad them too big, so I compromised. The three squig hopper minis will be attached to the unit and hop off to cause trouble when the bad guys get close enough. 
Incidentally the rides for the squig hoppers are the same models I used for the fanatics in the last post.
