Golasgil, Tarnost Guard and Goblin Town progress

One of my fiefdoms that I have been working on (using Perry miniatures) is Anfalas, which is Pinnath Gelin's southern neigbour, and one of the westernmost coastal areas in Gondor. Tolkien described the people as mostly farmers and fishermen who were not well equipped for war, except for the house of Golasgil, the Lord of Anfalas.
Here is my Golasgil:

He's created from a few parts from different sets, with some sculpting from greenstuff by myself. The head and body are from the Perry Mercenaries set. The beard, however, is sculpted on by me (which I'm rather chuffed with!). The wolfskin cloak is from the Gripping Beast plastic Viking Hirdmen box, with some sculpting around his neck. The base is meant to depict Golasgil in one of his subject's fields (because they're farmers) which is being raided. I pictured him as an older man, in contrast to my younger-looking Hirluin the Fair.

Here's a little look at the progress with my Goblin Town board:

A view of the supports for the walkways. (I'll paint over that huge brown splodge on the rock!)

And to finish, some shiny new (only recently released) minis from eBob Miniatures. These are the excellent new Normans from eBob, which are really lovely sculpts. I'm using them as the town guard of Tarnost. Tarnost is a town in the Belfalas region of Gondor. I've designed a new version of the White Tree for their shields. The guy on the right is a Captain of the Guard, and I've stuck on a feather from one of the Perry helmets to mark out his position.
