This was one of the half-finished minis in my end of the year finish-it-up pile. When the news about David Bowie's death broke I pulled him out to finish him. Shadowrun first came out in 1989. This figure (originally a Ral Partha, now from Ironwind Metals) came out in 1993. At the time the future aesthetic was terribly 1980s, and all the male elves looked like Bowie's Goblin King from Jim Henson's movie "Labyrinth". He is a decker. This involves having actual computer implants in his skull and having to carry around, in his hands, a gigantic 1980s-style keyboard and computer, because the future is not wireless. Ah, well. I'm not sure how well the figures sold, since Shadowrun is not necessarily a game that lends itself to minis scale combat (being prone to car chases and virtual reality). I like them anyway, as a bit of '80s retro-futurism noir.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/621743078/the-goblin-king-miniatures-set Text Link because picture is a bit too non-PG. This is a miniature set featuring the Goblin King being carried around by his burly orc goons, as he flaunts his girls and his gold. The set fits well into any 28mm heroic to 32mm fantasy miniature setting. This set can be easily be the center piece to any goblin army.
From the the Getting to know you better thread, here is the first mini I ever painted followed by the second and third attempts. The first is a Mage Knight Metal Goblin Grenadier. Painted at the Mage Knight Paint n take at Gencon some 14 years ago. They are all a little dusty from sitting on the shelf. After that I tried Mithril Miniatures LoTR Goblin King Then I tried to paint Reapers 02259: Orc Warrior Of Kargir by Sandra Garrity The last two did not turn out nearly as well as the first attempt likely do to using cheap plastic brushes (includind a Testors brush from a model car I had built) So I had very little ability to add detail. Also I had a much more limited selection of paints to use at home rather than at the paint n take at Gencon.
