Added some colors to the chainmail and some of the lower sides of the iron pieces on Kagunk's armor and then washed it with the Warpaint (Army Painter) Zombie Shader.  I chose this over the strong tone... at least at first, because the strong tone can make it really dark really fast.  I can always add more:


For the shield I just added the ink wash for now on the brown areas and outer rim.  I think I will have to do the rivets another hit and some of the darker areas of the interior, but mostly I'm happy with it just giving some definition in here.  I'll still need to work up to some highlights on the skull part itself and I plan to emphasize the copper rays I have coming from the eyes.


And touch up some of the outer rim that the ink didn't really sink in with.  I may use the strong tone in a few places just for emphasis, but we'll see...

I'm thinking I now want to add some greens into the crevices of the shield as well.  And I'll be hacking apart Darius the Blue for his mouse and spellbook to add to the base... muwhaaahaaa....  Not Darius the Blue the First, but Darius the Blue the Second.  Maybe the hat too... if I can flatten it some... hmmm....

Shield reminds me of Grimoire Weiss. Maybe it is able to talk? I imagine that to be absolutely awesome. "Ai! That hurt! Curse you! Ai! Not that spot! Not again! Hit him, not me! errrr ... I should have taken that job as decoration when I had the chance ..."


Great work. Looking forward to see it finished.

Worked on Flamelick, the Pyro Goblin tonight... mostly.  I did lots of dark brown leather on One-Eye and Toadcaller too.

Ok, so here's how I'm thinking of laying it out.  And we'll see how this translates into imaginary land...


Yagun Oog is standing in for Kagunk as he is not attached with 2 pounds of putty*.  

This will aproximate what Kagunk the Ogre sees:


And this is what Kagunk does not see behind him...


For the model-less illustration, these are aproximate sizes of figures without the distraction of body, shape or form.  And is the only time the Goblins will be taller than the Ogre.


There will be rubble and branches and assorted things here.  I was worried that the 5x7 oval was going to be way too large.  There were also some birch ovals that were longer but narrower, which might work fairly well, but I still think would have too much open area.  Mostly the layout with the stuff right now is a bit too symetrical because things are bumping into each other.  Once I am putting the figures down, this won't be the case and Kagunk's awesome (possibly intelligent) shield will be very visible and his line across the square will not be a straight diagonal.  Most likely he will be aiming at Toadcaller (dagger and spear) trying to get to the taunting torch-wielding Flamelick.  Bigbite will be coming across some rocks that will extend at least to the edge of the platform (thinking of squaring part of that corner up and building it up a bit) so that he almost looks like he is leaping or about to leap at Kagunk and cut his achilles tendon.  It almost makes the goblins seem too smart... but a smart goblin would never attack an Ogre.


*Not literally 2 pounds, but it felt like it trying to get him to stick, especially after he vaulted off once...

      Haven't been able to get my lights out, I want to do some close up of some of these guys but here is their group shots. If/when I do, I'll update this thread :) 


      I did want to do a bit more detail on them but honestly I'm suffering from can't see syndrome so I left it for now. Maybe when my eyes improve I can get some more done on them.

      Been a while sense I painted anything. So I did a quick paint of my 2nd favorite low lvl monster, Goblins for a 24h paint-athon. This three took about 6h from start to finish, don't know if I got a bad run or as these were some of the first Bones molds, the mold is a little warn but these guys looked a little thinner with less detail then other versions I've seen of this sculpt. Still all in all think they turned out ok and were good practice

      Here is a painted Ogre Guard done mainly in washes and glazes of Liquitex inks. I really liked this sculpt and Bobby gave the model some real character. The Bones model was also really solid. There was a strange bit of miscast on the skull on the front of his belt so I made it into a jelly bowl for some squashed hobbit jelly.

      A raiding of Rad Wasters and a gobbledegook of Goblins.

      All are converted from "The Hobbit: Escape from Goblin Town". I can see these filling a large number of roles; Goblins, Mutants, Poxwalkers, Ghouls, or more!

      Except for the Overseer and Goblin boss, all minis have been converted.  Even the fantasy/feudal 40k gobbo-mutants have had weapon swaps at the least; I don't care for doubles and had already painted their base sculpt back in the summer:

      First, we have the Rad Wasters!






      I forgot to take a shot of the last one with the others.  I guess he managed to sneak into the Goblin cave!

      Okay so I dug around in the drawer and pulled out six unpainted bones that I got in my batch that I bought.

      I gave them all a thorough scrub with a brush and warm soapy water and a toothbrush.  The ogre needed straightening up so I poured hot water over to readjust and then under cold to set.
      I attached all six using superglue to fender washer bases.  I got this tip on you tube and have been sticking to it since I started this process.  They are running out so I will look for an alternative afterwards.  But these are good and solid and make a good base.
      So now I have to decide which figure to work on....
      I have not primed any and up until now I have primed using "151" matt black spray paint.  I did not know exactly what to use so I tried this when I began.   
      I did pick up slightly after the photo and start to apply some blue to the Anhurian soldier using the same blue I mixed for a figure I was painting late last night.  But without primer it did not seem to want to settle very well.
      The two figures I have seen painted are by Doctor Faust ; the hell hound and the ogre.   
      Any comments/suggestions or generally helpful advice is gratefully welcomed.
