Privateer Press is all about previews these couple days. Here’s their latest, the Goblin Tinker.

From the preview:

Gifted with an innate mechanikal aptitude, gobbers often find themselves in high demand on the battlefields of western Immoren. Almost every commanding officer can find a use for a talented gobber tinker. Armed with their tools and a trusty sidearm, tinkers can develop a reputation for solid work in harsh conditions and make considerable fortunes—if they survive the rigors of war.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Nice! Lots of Character. Like that he’s sorta surly. First PP sculpt I’ve liked in a while.

  • wittdooley

    Couldn’t agree more! What a flavorful little sculpt. Any rules for him that you’ve seen?

      He was released in Garguants.

      • wittdooley

        Figured as much after I saw he wasn’t in Colossals. Still haven’t gotten the Gargants book.

        • wittdooley

          He’s on a 40mm so it looks like we can’t just use him as a mechanik for Cygnar, which is a bit of a shame, but not a deal breaker. Still a great looking model.

          • Oh so he is a bit larger than I expected. I am not familiar with the game and it’s races, I just figured he was goblin sized 🙂

          • GreenJello

            The mechanics that come with the Cygnar Mechanics unit are all about the size of 80s Orks, or slightly larger than 40K gretchin. Mainly a bit beefier as models, while being a similar height.

          • wittdooley

            It’s his cart that makes him larger, which is one of the best things about the model.

          • My immediate thought was to make this into a portable soup kitchen…

          • GreenJello

            I’m not clear on why 40mm makes him unusable in Cygnar, unless you mean as a proxy for a bodger in the Cygnar Mechanic’s Unit.

            Personally I’m thinking about getting two, since he’s cheap, can’t be trampled, and fixes stuff better than our current Mechanics.

          • wittdooley

            Yeah, I meant as a proxy. I’ve never had problems using the Kilt Lifter because he’s on a similar base as the rest of the trollkin, but this little dude is on a 40mm whereas the meks are on 30mm. And he definitley looks like he fills up the 40mm.

          • GreenJello

            Remove him from the base, remove the cart from his hands, add tools, put him on 30 mm base.

  • Oooh I want this! Would go nicely in a diorama… $22!!! I’ll pass for now 🙁
