Heritage/Custom Cast Lesser Goblin With Bow

Here is possibly the oldest miniature I own, a "Lesser Goblin With Bow" sculpted by Duke Siefried, produced in 1975 by Heritage/Custom Cast in their Der Kriegspielers Fantastiques Lord of the Rings line.

I love the face on this little guy!  
I'm not sure if he once held an arrow or other item in his right hand.  I can't find a picture of this exact goblin anywhere. The Lost Minis Wiki page for this line of minis has pics of very similar Lesser Goblins with bows, but they are in a different pose.  If anyone has any insight into this let me know.  I considered adding an arrow of some kind to his hand but couldn't easily come up with one that scaled well with the figure and decided it didn't really need it.  Maybe he is smiling because the arrow he just fired hit a hobbit or something.

Here's how he looked before base and primer:

I got lots more stuff to paint, I just gotta find the time to do it.  Stay tuned.


  1. Nice painting on an ugly happy little fella. Keep it up!

  2. It is so cool to see a mini that is fully 38 years old, being restored and re-painted!
