Goblin Standard Bearers - 77567

OUTSTANDING! The Little Rogues make a WONDERFUL Color Party...BEAUTIFUL color choices & brushwork. The regimental device is UBERCOOLVERY WELL DONE!

The varying skin shades look TERRIFIC. That is an unique take & an imaginative idea that worked SPLENDIDLY.

Great work! I really like the colours and - as you pointed out - the eyes.

 

There is one thing though that looks weird to me: Those orange shoes of the green one somehow don't fit the scenery at all. I mean - you've got all this more or less dark colours, all harmonizing together and then then are bright orange shoes. I don't know. Doesn't fit in my opinion.

Thank you! The darkest goblin really isn't blue. It is my drow skin recipe and it has a dab of P3 Coal Black which is a blue black but not much. There is Nightshade Purple and another purple in there and yet, his photos look blue. Oh well!

Well.....there is a whole lot of brown and bone and beige and tan and I was trying to use other colors since it was looking pretty dull and and kind of blah. I decided to pull the green from the banner down into the loincloth and then using color theory, what goes good with green? Red/Orange. I even threw two washes over them to tone them down. You should have seen them before! I was going to repaint them but my husband said he likes them. I also think they are kind of funny because they are the school colors of my son-in-law's highschool which is in the neighboring small town where I grew up. So yeah, I was just stumped on what color to make them and even thinking about repainting them, not sure what color I would go with. Maybe light blue but not sure how I would like that with the blue loin cloth on the drum goblin and the light blue drummer. Hmmmm.....

It looks awesome. My favorite part is the rusted standard speaks and the longhorn. The gradient on the horns is amazing.

Can't wait to see the group picture, that will dissolve any consurn about the boots color since they will complement the Ogress's clothes.

Thank you! You rock! That is true, once I get the last ogre done and put them all together, there will be more orange!

 

Thanks for noticing the rust! Haha! I was afraid I had gone too dark with the horns but I wanted to differentiate it from the skulls and banner color.

Well, if you thought something out, it's fair enough.

 

I'm just giving away my impression ;-D

Those look amazing!  I love the colour gradations and the details on the banner and the drum especially. All of them look astoundingly beautiful.  

 

As a side note to an earlier comment: I always assume all goblins, orcs and other like creatures have extremely poor fashion sense and thus will literally wear the most hideous colours together. Just my thinking.

      Each of these took me about two hours to paint. Pretty happy with how they turned out, but I was going for more if a woven grass look on the hobgoblin but don't think I actually achieved it.

      Hi, I have decided to attempt to improve my painting ability by painting my way through h the reaper 3 core set. I will attempt to update weekly and am welcome to tips and critiques as the goal is to improve what I can do as I go.  
      this first batch includes 2 variations of lizard folk 77426 77154, a yeti 77436, a Giant Cobra 77321, and an elite Hobgoblin 77477. My first specific request for help is the use of unusual colors. I feel that I too often use mainly greys and browns, the lizard folk are a good example of one being a little more bland but realistic but the other allows for using colors I wouldn't be able to justify otherwise. I really struggle picking out colors for capes and armors as these end up looking either out of place or way to bland and boring. do you have any ways of choosing when to reach out with bright colors and when to be more reserved? I hope to use responses here to mold future paint jobs for next week. Thanks Guys CC welcome

      Hello fellow miniature painters! This is my first attempt at painting a r̶e̶s̶i̶n̶ Bonesium miniature model.
      My local miniature hobby shop was holding a painters' meet-up and the subject was anything humanoid or figurine.
      I bought the Frost Giant King and got my paint scheme and inspiration from KingMob's painted Frost Giant King. 
      I think I did an okay-ish job, although no where as good as KingMob or other experienced painters here. Also the sword and spear are bent. Gonna try to straighten it by softening in boiling water and quenching in ice water.
       
      I bought a couple more Reaper Minis and hope to complete them some time soon.

      WIP thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79164-trakzul-as-red-dragon-and-treasure-hoard/
       
      I picked up T'Raukzul to be my colossal Great Wyrm Red dragon, and spent a lot of time putting together the pieces for his base. I used the resin treasure hoard from Reaper (though they never seem to have it in stock, so I had to get it from a third party seller) and the pewter treasure piles in the parts referenced above. I also used a Bones 3 vampire warrior as a marble statue, some bits and pieces from the weapons sprues (including a sword in the stone), a random elephant necklace I had lying around, and aquarium terrain. The WIP thread shows a lot of the building blocks being put together. I also mounted a thread of LED lights into the aquarium terrain and did some minor work trying to make it glow when I turned the thing on. Despite my best efforts to seal up the gaps, some light leaks through, but it sort of works as magma veins. The photos of the lights on are harder to get, as they get drowned out by too much other lighting. Overall, it took me about 5 days of work, off and on. I tried to get some variety in the treasure hoard, painted up a vase to resemble a Ming vase, tried to have lots of bits and pieces scattered around. I'm pretty satisfied with the results, though. It's a pity I probably won't have too many encounters where I'd be able to use him, but I look forward to putting my players' characters in jeopardy at least once.

      I finally felt like I could sit at the painting desk yesterday, so I finished up this little group of 6 ancient goblins from Minifig’s first fantasy (Tolkien) range, sculpted around 1972. I’ve been spending effort on acquiring enough of these figures to stage a game for the past couple of years. Hopefully by 2019 sometime...
       

       
      As with any massed shield bearing troops, most of the effect comes from attention to the shields. 
       

       
      Not much to see around back...
