My results form World Wide Miniatures day.  Figure 1 of 3.

 

This is actually the first GW model that I have painted.  Not really sure how the colors relate to the standard color scheme, but I think this worked pretty well.

 

Comments and Critiques welcome.

In GW terms this would be a Night Goblin.

 

When I acquired the model, it didn't have any of its retail packaging.  I knew it was GW, but my Googleing to figure out what it was came up with both Grott and Night Goblin references.  I was confused. 

 

Was there a terminology change somewhere along the way?

Grott is the new thing. Night goblin is the old. 

GW blew up their world so they could rename everything stupidly and have strong claims to IP.

 

Got it.  This model was actually cast in metal, so that makes it a bit on the older side and probably originally marketed as a Night Goblin.

In GW Terms Grot is a Goblin in the 40K Universe, Goblin is for Fantasy.

Night Goblins are a special tribe.

Grot spilled over to AoS (the replacement for WHFB):

I stopped following their fluff when they released AOS.

The old stuff was more to my liking.
