Hoosu Ozu’s Lair

„Now goblins are cruel, wicked, and bad-hearted. They make no beautiful things, but they make many clever ones. They can tunnel and mine as well as any but the most skilled dwarves, when they take the trouble, though they are usually untidy and dirty. Hammers, axes, swords, daggers, pickaxes, tongs, and also instruments of torture, they make very well, or get other people to make to their design, prisoners and slaves that have to work till they die for want of air and light. It is not unlikely that they invented some of the machines that have since troubled the world, especially the ingenious devices for killing large numbers of people at once, for wheels and engines and explosions always delighted them, and also not working with their own hands more than they could help; but in those days and those wild parts they had not advanced (as it is called) so far.“

Hoosu Ozu, the rats and the minions are Rackham Miniatures. Rackham made some of the nicest Miniatures which ever existed in the 35mm scale range. The company went sadly bankrupt in 2008. You can find a catalogue of all miniatures made by them on this fan page.
