My New Idea Creature Idea - Goblin

The goblin is a classic villain's foot soldier in fantasy and mythology. They would make the perfect choice as a cheap alternative to the gold-demanding orcs for the resource-starved Dungeon Lord. I also see them as being the evil general purpose troop that can have different strengths and weaknesses, depending on how they're equipped.

He looks almost undead looking. Or that he haven't gotten any sunlight in the last.. forever.. Tongue

Hmm, if I remember correctly I think I posted a similar creature here somewhere..

Don't seem to find the post atm but I had the image:


I know, this is not a goblin.. But I wanted to include it in the discussion because its purpose were also to be cannonfodder.

This is also an concept art image made by BurningPet that could fall into the same category:

Those definitely have possibilities, and we definitely need a cheap fodder creature that we can churn out in numbers.
