  1. Another recent project, some of the cave Goblins from The Hobbit's "Escape from Goblin Town" boxed set. I had been looking for a set after getting Nord Game's "Revenge of the Horde" 5E monster manual. Their obviously Peter Jackson inspired designs inspired me in turn: A friend is planning a move and trying to downsize his collection, so his "Escape from Goblin Town" became mine. Here's the first few: And a close-up. I may make them a bit more pallid: cave a.bmp
  2. Well this month I decided to join in the hangouts mini. Got started on mine tonight on the hangouts. Went with the green skin as all my other's I have are painted up as greenskins. I mostly base coated tonight during the hangout. Here is what I got accomplished.
  3. Been a while since I have been able to paint as work has been insane of late. GM asked me to find a goblin alchemist. Had a gremlin taxidermist from Mailfaux that worked perfect for what he wanted. Still trying work out how to do a saliva bubble and drool. Drool should be the easy one. From what I can work out NPC is meant to be some disgusting little thing who becomes a party member.
  4. Following up on last month's Shaman figure, this month we're moving onto the Commander figure! Tonight was simply glueing him to the cork and then giving him a basecoat of brown liner. I expect to paint him basically the same way as the shaman, so this should go pretty smoothly... *insert universe laughing at me here*
  5. First post on a reaper forum! I really enjoyed painting these little buggers. This was my first attempt at OSL. How can you not resist trying on these models! ...now for the bases.
  6. I finished the shaman off last night, and just finished taking some pictures.
  7. In spite of the fact that I haven't finished my Orc Druid, I decided tonight to get March's goblin shaman started. A couple of goblin troops snuck in as bodyguards... Nothing much but some brown liner and corks from the drow.
  8. So I have been working on this guy since the middle of April, and finished his base and final assembly tonight, So I give you The Hobgoblin Cheiftain & Death Chicken! I am taking many pictures to try and find flaws, as well as to solicit opinions as to the best way / angle / composition because Infamy miniatures is holding a painting contest for this figure, and I can only send them 6 pics. (PS if you have this mini, just entering the contest will net you a store voucher of 10 GBP! Entries by 30 June) I will likely post more pics when I get a better idea of what to do.... Thanks for looking, and critiquing! Special Thanks to those that followed along in the WiP, as well as the Hangouts for all the encouragement and suggestions! George
  9. So here's my Goblin Shaman, bare as the day he was cast. (And totally not an excuse to try out the new forum upload). No idea what I'm doing with this dood, so let's see where it goes.
  10. Posted 12 February 2017 - 10:25 PM We have reached a consensus for the March Mini... (sort off) Going with Chaos wolf's theme of building a warband is the following: Goblin Leader & Shaman Ben Siens In Metal In Bones This would give us an apprentice spell caster for March, and a Barbarian / warrior / knight for April.... Price is pretty nice in metal, but I realize some folks may already have the bones version..... I will be placing my order on Friday when the Trista mini comes out in metal Need the new Domor mini as well....
  11. Another Games Workshop mini, this time it's an Ork Mek with a Shokk Attack Gun, and he has a WIP thread here. A Shokk Attack Gun is basically a short range teleporter with a vacuum cleaner attached, Goblins get sucked up one end and beamed out the other, the aim being to get the Goblins to re-materialize inside your enemies and really ruin their day. Not normally a fan of Orks (or even Orcs), but I just loved all the mechanical gubbins and had a lot of fun painting him (plus I remembered not to completely assemble him before I started painting, which made things easier). As always, and comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  12. Happy New Year! (Buuuuuuurp!)
  13. Just fancied doing a project thread for no particular reason. Still very much obsessed with Games Workshop minis at the moment, and this one in particular is a Big Mek Ork with a Shokk Attack Gun. (A Shokk Attack Gun is a short-range teleporter linked to an industrial strength vacuum. Goblins are sucked up at one end and beamed out of the other, the idea being to get them to re-materialize inside your enemies. Nothing is going to ruin someone's day like a panicked Goblin suddenly appearing in your stomach.) Haven't got too far yet:- Mini has been partially assembled (I prefer painting once fully assembled, but this one just has too many nooks and cranny's) and mounted on pins. Now I'm just waiting for a free cork (I seem to have misplaced most of mine) and I can make a start on the first piece, the Ork himself.
  14. Someone created a thread for people's first and best minis. I am posting my first mini and my latest mini. This is a picture of a nameless goblin from Ral Partha, I am sure this is the first mini I ever painted. It came from a box set this is the only one to survive the years. When I painted it I didn't have any paints and I couldn't afford to buy any. I used ground up color pencils and water to make paint. It has been painted several times over the years, still looks ok. The other is Trista the white wolf. I used reaper paint on this one. No pencils this time. Enjoy.
  15. So I just finished playing Styx Master Of Shadows and I REALLY want to make a character in the future for an RPG based off of him. I am having trouble finding a miniature that is unique and similar to the main character Styx. Any help would be great. This guy is original. You'll understand if you play the game. Also, Side note from looking up photo for everyones reference, Styx Master of Shadows is a prequel to Of Orcs and Men. I also recommending playing Styx if you like Assassins Creed. The fighting mechanics are a bit annoying but once you get it is can be HIGHLY satisfying. ________________________________ Figure Finder Catalog: Part 1: Styx: Master of Shadows Part 2: Jabba Mod/Gang Boss Part 3: TAKE COVER!
  16. I've been painting up a few of my vintage pre-slotta Citadel goblins recently & I have lined up this Goblin Chieftain's Chariot (FTG13) for my next paint job. I thought it would be interesting to do it as a WIP so, here goes.... As you can see, there's quite a few pieces to assemble. It's not overly complicated but I'm definitely going to have to paint up all the pieces first then assemble them afterwards, this may prove a bit difficult as I can't exactly stick them on blue tack on an old paint pot for easy handling. The goblins have some really characterful sculpting to them & I love the way the Chieftain is wearing a super big helmet & standing on a box to elevate himself above his crew & although you won't be able to see it after assembly, the box actually has a peeling "Beer" label on it! I am going to build a swampy base to sit the chariot on, I'm not that great at sculpting so I'd love to get some input/ideas/help from the community when I come to that point. Finally, there are a few issues that I need to overcome: 1. The chariot is broken at the yoke part & one of the axle scythes is missing. Pinning & gluing the yoke should be easy enough & I'm going to use some flattened copper wire for the axle. 2. The standard bearer's bow has a miscast section. 3. The Chieftain's right arm is miscast & is missing his hand. This hand looks like it should rest on the side of the chariot so I guess I will have to create one out of putty after I've painted the bulk of him & glued him to the chariot? I'm not looking forward to this bit! Thanks for looking!
  17. Yes, the challenge insanity has gotten me, too. Just not quite as bad....I think. It's also a slightly different variety. I have 50 of these guys: Don't ask me why, I have no idea; I think they've been multiplying in the dark foot locker they were stored in. Anyway, the challenge I have set for myself is this: I will convert 49 of them so that no two are the same. That's right, I'm going to (hopefully) create a small horde of individualized mono-pose plastic goblins. I am going to leave 1 unconverted, for two reasons: 1) I will have an original figure to compare my conversions against. 2) Once the whole group is done I can hide him in there someplace and see if anyone can find him. I suppose you're all gonna want me to paint 'em too, aren't you? Fine, I'll do that, too. The main point of this exercise is the conversion, though; once that's done painting may take a little (lot) longer. What's the time frame, you ask? There isn't one, but it's not going to be years long or anything, either. In fact, I've already started; see below. Let's call it the last day of September for converting and painting to be done. Also, just for kicks, I'm gonna give you all some power over me (just a little, don't get any crazy ideas). You all collectively have 2 vetoes that you may use if you think I'm slacking off and one goblin looks a little too much like another. Some rules about that: 1) The basic pose will be staying (mostly) the same for all of them, so that doesn't count 2) At least 4 people need to agree that a certain gobbo doesn't cut it; I don't want 22 different people all vetoing a different figure. 3) Vetoes only apply to conversions; the paint jobs will be fairly similar in order to help me get through them. So, the first 6 are done: Fur trimmed Hun style helmet, looted human helmet, this was supposed to be a fur cap, but it just looks like hair, so we'll call it hair. Eye patch, mohawk, pirate style do-rag. They all have different shields as well.
  18. Finished up Sluggort, a Darksword DiTerlizzi mini. The studio paintjob was green, but I thought I'd go with a more Caucasian skin tone, with a touch of jaundice and various other skin conditions. Sometimes, a goblin just needs to relax among the tall grass and wildflowers.
  19. Greetings! I finally finished my mini diorama featuring a classic Goblin Chieftain's Chariot (FTG13) citadel miniature from "the olden days". I had a lot of fun painting & creating this & I learned some new things along the way. If you would like to see how it was created, the WIP can be found here. Thanks for looking, comments & critiques are always welcome!
  20. Another batch of Undead, this time from Johnny Borg Castings "Dungeon Monsters" Kickstarter. The horde: Dead Sonja: Halfling Skeleton: Skeletal Elf Ranger: Dwarf Zombie: Dwarf Skeleton: Goblin Skeleton: Zoblin: Orc Skeleton (with odd Mickey Mouse gloves): Zorc: Rattlin' Ratling: Rotting Ratling: A verminous duo: Undead Lizards: Skeletal Lizardfolk: Zombie Lizardfolk:
  21. So, I come before you with a Challenging Dilemma. I was Commissioned by a representative of the European branch of the D&D Minis Guild to provide a couple of prizes for their Championships in August, as well as a couple of minis needed by that individual for personal use. About a month ago, I was contacted by someone from the North American Branch to do the same thing for theirs! So, my dilemma is this, how do I do both groups justice in the time I have left? Due to Shipping times, I need the European items ready to go by late June at least. That means I'll have time to at least finish the NA Items. But, unfortunately, that means I will not be a part of the Summer Exchange this year. So, As this is a WIP Thread, I am of course posting pics of my work so far;) hear they are... First up is King Snuure, the Fire Giant King! He has one of the best Sculpts of the early DDM Run and catches a lot of the Flavor of the Iconic NPC, including a Cloak made from a White Dragon's Hide! Been wanting to repaint him for ages and finally the time has come. The Human Paladin from the Icons of the Realms first set. The DDM Guild has been releasing stats for the WizKids Line recently and the Pally here is a pretty good piece for the Skirmish game. I painted one for GenCon last year. This one is going to the European Champs. Snig the Axe here. Never did find out if Snig is the Goblin or the Weapon he weilds:P But its a cool little guy and has details i did not notice til now. The Feymire Crocodile. Part Reptile, Part Plant all Sorts of Nasty! Not the best Stats in the Game, but an awesome mini sculpt and a seriously BAD Stock paint job. I'm fixing that with my repaint. Just base coats and the start of Shading here, but already leaps and bounds beyond what it used to look like! So far so good. But I still have several more to work on that I cannot reveal quite yet. Any Constructive Comments are welcome. GF
  22. Just finished this little bugger. Simple, tabletop-quality paintjob. As a goblin, it's a bit on the large side.
  23. OK folks, I need some help... As most of you know, I am going to enter this guy in the Infamy painting contest, and I would like to make the best showing I can, so here are a bunch of pics, please choose the ones you think show him off the best! (I can send 8 pics total....) So please choose your favorite 8 pics and help me decide! Thanks! George
  24. The Death Chicken Commences! I had a little time tonight, so I continued with Infamy Mini's One Shot Goblin Chieftain. First off, He is a big boy, so I am going to think of him as a Hobgoblin, instead of a goblin. (Sorry Buglips) He will have Orange skin, as all my Hobgoblins do... Secondly, this resin is very different from the other resin minis I have worked with, much softer and more flexible than the Forge World Iron Warriors Dreadnought I built, or Battlefront's resin vehicle bodies... It is Fragile as Hades! Ias I was slowly sawing the chicken's lower jaw off the sprue with an X Acto saw, I broke one of the spikes where the reins attach.... 5 minutes of unholy speech, and crawling around the floor rewarded me with the piece, which I carefully glued back into place... I fear for the attachment of this figure to a base! The only point touching the ground is it's right foot, and the shape of it's ankle / foot /leg precludes driving a pin up the length of it's leg. I may have to re-think that, and drill the hole anyway and hide the wire so I have a semi sturdy attachment point... Thoughts ideas anyone? As a temporary solution for painting, I drilled a hole in it's belly for a wire to support it whilst paint is applied... Parts fit so far has been good, after removing sprue attachments etc. Left leg and Lower jaw... Still lots to assemble, next will be the 'wings'... This will definitely be a paint the rider separately job, and the way he attaches to the bird, he may get a wire for me to hide between his bum and the saddle, as the only attachment points there are the insides of his shins, and the straps of the reins.... Here is a scan of the Artwork that came with the KS: The mini follows the art almost exactly... And 2 pics of the Death Chicken so far: Little bit of gap filling to do... George
  25. So while nattering away on the Google Hangout that Guindyloo set up for the Memorial Day Painting Binge, He got finished.... I think he came out pretty good, nothing I would consider more than a high end Table Top.... Not really pleased with his eyes, but after the third or fourth repaint, I said to Hades with it.... WiP Here Thanks For Looking! George
