    Shadowrun Hobgoblin from Ral Partha

    So here is my second hobgoblin that I've completed. I've actually got a pile of six hobgoblins, the Reaper Archer, this one and four Hackmaster Hobgoblins. Every so often I try to work on figures with at least some similar color schemes to make me work a bit more efficiently. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. With all the hobgoblins, their biggest commonality was the skin tones, after that they kind of branched out. Anyhows, here's hobgoblin number two, from a set of Shadowrun Metahumans. The set came with two gnomes (that I've already posted) and a cyclops which I'll get worked on after I'm hobgoblinned out. This guy ended up being pretty colorful. I had a full mohawk to work with so I had to throw some color into that! with those side lines of hair, I wasn't sure if those were supposed to be hair or some kind of cyborg cables, but in the end I opted for hair. Gave me a chance to throw a bit more color around! Enjoy!

    03813 Female Hobgoblin Archer

    Hi All, Ever since I saw this design in the Kickstarter, I really liked her a lot, and when they made her in metal, I had to get her. Of course between now and then many months have gone by but I've finally gotten her painted, together with some other hobgoblins I've been working on. When I read the Monster Manual for coloring it said "their faces are bright red-orange to red", so for whatever reason I omitted the red part and just went orange. I think she came out in any case reasonably well though. I don't work very often with multiple-piece models, and with this chicky poo, I had to attach the hand and bow to her arm. Previously I've always attached pieces at the beginning, but this time finally listened to my reasonable nerd self and kept that piece separate, and attached it after the rest of the model was painted. I had previously painted the hand when I painted her skin elsewhere, but then attached the hand and bow and ended up priming and painting the bow after everything else was ready to go and that seemed to work out pretty well. The hardest color choice I had on her actually was her bandana. Yellow was a last resort, don't know if it would have been better another color? Anyway, hope you enjoy her!

    Half orcs or hobgoblins

    Have painted up some half orcs. They are from Mark Copplestone, who made them for Grenadier Games many years ago. They are still in print from 2 or 3 different small sellers. I used Vallejo leather brown Air primer (with a brush though) and Army Painter Strong tone. This covered the whole mini and made the process of highlighting and building up the base coats much quicker.

    Origins Speed Painting Entries

    So, I went to Origins this weekend and entered the Reaper Speed-Paint. I was only supposed to be at the con on Friday and Saturday, but I paved on Friday and won my Saturday semifinal, so I called in sick on Sunday so I could compete in the finals, where I managed to pull off a win. Friday was the scarecrow, Saturday was the hobgoblin, and Sunday they gave us the Jungle Titan. I'd already painted two of the three before, which certainly didn't hurt when it came go time. I didn't get a chance to get pictures in my photo studio before heading out on vacation, so these are the shots I took with my phone at the convention. We had 45 minutes in round 1, 50 minutes in round 2, and a whopping 60 minutes in round 3.

    Fewmaster Toede, the hobgoblin

    May I present to you; Fewmaster Toede of the Dragon Lance Chronicles. Sorry, the pictures didn't turn out that well. But I'm quite happy with the paintjob. All kinds of C&C is very welcome.

    Lidless Eye Hobbies: The Randos

    A gallery dedicated to the random fantasy guys I finished while I was working on the other themed projects: A bunch of randos: Dolmen from Ganesha Games: A Hobgoblin Wizard, also from Ganesha Games: A Halfling Thief from Red Box Games: A Kraken Cult Leader from Midlam Miniatures:
  7. @LeonR344 @LittleBluberry Had asked about doing weapon swaps with the new bones weapon packs. So I thought I've never really done one before either but I thought I'd offer up my bones for science in a how to / WIP. I've never done a WIP before so bear with me,and here we go.
  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. I skipped a few steps, but I actually remembered to take a WiP shot of my set from the "Song of Blades and Heroes: Axe and Brimstone" Kickstarter. There's also a few Hobgoblins who I started in hopes it would motivate the delayed KS package to arrive quicker (it worked!)
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. So since I only had 3 main projects and the diorama going, I am starting something else! This is Maglubiyet, Chief Deity of Goblins and Hobgoblins, who made his first appearance in the old 'Deities and Demi-Gods' from AD&D first edition... Maglubiyet is described as a giant (11 feet tall), black-skinned goblin with flaming eyes, powerfully-muscled arms and sharp talons. He is said to wield a mighty coal-black battleaxe that constantly drips blood. The mini is pretty cool, nicely cast with few mold lines, one of which I found while doing the initial base coat, of course... So here he is with a base coat of MSP Blue Liner: The eyes are gonna be fun.... If I had a couple more of these, I think they would make awesome statues for next to the doors of a temple... George
  13. Something's been bugging me ever since I saw the desire to have more hobgoblins in Bones 3. What is a hobgoblin's distinctive features? Often, I see them as basically normal humanoid shape and size, with some beastly facial features who aren't as exaggerated as orcs. Yet, we already have plenty of minis that fit that description in the form of half-orcs. Same basic shape, different skin colour, may have body hair. So the question to my fellow Peepers: "What should be the difference between hobgoblins and half-orcs minis?"
  14. Why not? I've never sculpted before, but I enjoy painting minis. I've done a few very minor mods before. I wanted more. So I decided to try making my own custom mini. I read the article in Kinetic7 vol 1, swung by a suprising number of craft/ art stores, decided on a build, and went to it with as little foreplanning as possible (before I lost my nerve). I decided to try to make a female Hobgoblin hero archer. Why? Well, our Fighter cleric just picked up a hobgoblin cohort in our DragonLance game and there don't appear to be any female hobgobling archer minis already lying about on the interwebs. Also, hobgoblins are kind of ugly, so there is room for lots of error. They are more heavy set, so I can get away with less fine detail if I want. And finally, it's not someone's main PC, so I feel way less pressure. To make things easier on myself I decided to base my creation off a mini I already have lying around: 03166: Alistrilee, Elf Archer by Bobby Jackson Spent more hours than I should have last night getting the basic shape down and making her face. Results below. First thoughts? Fun! Also, Sculpey Firm is still really soft and I didn't even use clay softener. I kept having to put it in the freezer for a couple minutes to firm it up. Next time I may just go with the harder greenstuff-like-stuff for everything and not just the underbase (but I am also not sure I can work that fast).
