Heya pretty good stuff for goblins... :D
or "squigs",however... the best goblins I've ever seen...
And they're completely made from non-minfig parts :shock:
Altough the second one really shouldn't have those flinstock pistols... :wink:

Excellent work,this is what I call a good idea design

These are very cool, they remind me alot of Micah Berger's stuff, especially the Fuzzy Man and The Ork, yet they have their own style as well. From what I can make out, they use fairly common pieces, so if I get any of those pieces you used for hands, I can make one. By the way, what holds those into the minifig legs? Is there any way to fit the new viking horns onto the bottom dish piece on the face, giving them tusk-like lower teeth?

~smcginnis

P.S. Djole, they do have minifig parts (hands and legs) in their arms, and he said they have advanced technology, which is why they have the guns.

You just sort force the hand pieces in there and they stay there quite well, and about the teeth, I've tried it, you have to open their mouth so much that it starts to fall out. some cut white tubing would probably work, although I don't have any to try.

I was meant SYSTEM minfig parts (sorry if I miss something,but I don't see any cassic system minfig part in their arms and legs) and I said he SHOULDN'T have guns,means much better without advanced technology :wink:

These are really cool. I actually kinda like the one with the pistols; I dunno why, but it just looks cool. The feet are also really clever.

These are Great! BUT LOSE THE GUNS! One thing that I hate are medieval stuff with guns. They killed off all thought of honour and a fair fight. Just my opinion.

I like your articulate style.

Just a short one more:

I don't think you should add teeth to them...
I like how's that round 2x2 black plate's shape working as a head and the teeth in the same time... It should remain the simpliest it can.That's what is the beautiness of LEGO.

Yeah, like Squigs would care about honor or fighting fairly. :wink:

Yeah, that's the general idea, and their technology is unsually high because only 1% of their entire race have even a vague knowledge of magic. Actually the squigs were supposed to be an alien race at first, then looking at them, I liked them as castle creatures more. Thanks for the comments everyone, I'm glad you like my little squigs.

Wow, these are fantastic! I love brickbuilt beasts and these are definately some of the better ones. These sorts of things can be very hard to create and I think you implemented everything very well. I even like the fact that you used brown weapons instead of black to stand out more. Keep it up!

Regardless, I lose all respect for any fantasy theme with guns. Your stuff is still great, don't add teeth, I just think they'd be better as a swarming race that dwells in swamps or mountains.

Would you mind posting some brief instructions. I dunno about anyone else but I cant see how you did the arms. These are very clever. Excellent job!
