A Night Goblin horde

Night Goblins are a Goblin sub-breed who live inside the mountains of the Old World. [1a]

Night Goblins dress predominately in black, and will only come out into the sunlight when they are suitably reinforced by considerable amounts of fungus beer. [1a]

They spend the majority of their time fighting each other, Dwarfs, and/or Skaven, as all three species compete for the same territories. The Night Goblins have had considerable success in their battles with the Dwarfs, having even conquered a portion of Karak Eight Peaks, the most ancient and awe-inspiring Dwarf hold.

The Night Goblins make extensive use of Squigs in battle, being one of the few creatures beneath the World's Edge Mountains whom the goblins can tame (somewhat) effectively. These squigs are either herded towards the enemy, or in the case of the most hard-case gobbos, ridden into battle. [1d]

Fanatics and Netters

  • Fanatics: Night goblins that have drunk the infamous fungus beer become abnormally strong and lug into battle a huge ball and chain, these madcap goblins are called Night Goblin Fanatics. Impervious to pain and with a urge to leap about and swing their ball, they are restrained until they reach the battlefield where they are unleashed against the enemies of the tribe. [1b]
  • Netters: Expert hunters and trappers, the Night Goblin Netters use weighted nets and heavy clubs to capture Cave squigs. Inhaling fungal spores on their hunts leave them with a perpetual grin and much reduced sense of danger. [1c]

Squig Herds

The Night Goblins are experts in hunting, capturing and slaying Squigs using parts that they do not eat as weapons or clothing. In addition some are kept as dangerous pets and guard dogs. During battles, herds of Squigs are encouraged with firebrands, pitchforks and drums to charge the enemy. [1d]

Weapons and Equipment

  • 6th Edition: Hand Weapon, Shield. May have Spears or swap Shields for Short Bows. May have Net. May have up to 3 Fanatics. May have Musician, Night Goblin Boss and Standard Bearer. [1e]
