Goblin (Warhammer)

Goblin (Warhammer)

Goblins, also known as "Gobbos", are among the smallest of the goblinoid "greenskin" races in the Warhammer Fantasy setting.

They are smaller than the Orcs and the Hobgoblins but larger than the Gnoblar race (a cousin to the goblins, rather than a tribe or subculture) and Snotlings (a tinier type of Goblinoid). While they lack the size and brute force of the Orcs, they are more clever and cunning than their larger cousins.

In the game, there are different subcultures of Goblins, with varying degrees of autonomy from their Orcish cousins, including the Night Goblins and primitive Forest goblins (a tribe of Goblins residing in the Old World's forests and having an appearance reminiscent of stereotypical Native Americans). All Goblins are violent and malicious, and consider warfare to be a pastime or hobby.

The Hill Goblin is the type most commonly seen in the Old World.
