Just wondering what the time frame is on adding these to the goblin roster. Are they difficult to implement in the client?

Well, unofficial guessing, but ...

They'll need icons, and portraits. The Ooligan skills are in client, so easy enough to add for the standard competitive roster, after the art is ready. The Doom Diver would need specific coding that would then need bug tested and so on. Plus, Swoop is a fairly unconventional skill, and I'm not sure that the client code base will be at all happy about having a temporarily-active player moving over the squares of other players, given the bugs associated with that during setup.

The Orc for Renegades likewise would need art. Anyone art up to standard? Volunteering? Post examples in thread for ridicule and complaint by the untalented masses? Smile

In the mean time, abstract icons could be used to represent Ooligan and Orc Renegade.
Better an abstract icon than nothing as temporary workaround.
The Orc renegade can be made from a normal Orc Lineman with the skin colour changed, like the Goblin Renegade.

Tussock what are you talking about? We already have players flying over players already, the only code I see that needs to be added is using the throw in template instead of a d8. If im not mistaken the art is already in the system as well for the doom diver.

I came here actually about to ask this question. I love goblins and would love to play with them at their full potential.

Ya here is one of them https://fumbbl.com/i/450320

How about this for an ooligan?

Or this for an orc Renegade.

The Doom Diver with the bat wings seems the best to me, because in BB he's thrown by a Troll, not by the Doom Diver catapult like in WHFB.

The Orc renegade is too beefy, he looks ST 4 or 5.
I think that using a normal Lineorc with a skin colour change and maybe 1 or 2 spikes on shoulder pads should be fine.

About the ooligan: what about a Goblin wielding a broken bottle or a stick? It gives the idea of a brawler using an improvised weapon. The whip (is that a whip?) doesn't look like an ooligan weapon, a chain or a metal bar would be better in my opinion.

Looks good, the bottle is not broken but I understand that it's hard to draw that on such small icon. What about the fan scarf? Is it possible to add it or would it add too many details, making the icon a bit messy?
