  1. "Goblin Civil War is a set of miniatures rules and a range of figures for fighting 'The Goblin Civil War', a fantasy campaign inspired by the historical events of The Spanish Civil War. Even if the miniatures are too genre-specific, take a look at the terrain bundles, from Scotia Grendel. Shown here is the Ruins set. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/blackstone/goblin-civil-war?ref=ksr_email_user_new_friend_project
  2. If not for Black Plague, Conan, Blood Rage, Dungeon Sage, Darkness and Light ... and maybe Bones III, I'd be interested: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1636851747/atlantis-miniatures-28mm-goblinsorcs-and-trolls/description
  3. Overview I'm working on a conversion for my partner's character in our Swords and Wizardry campaign. She's a half-elf rogue with red hair that dual-wields swords, but unfortunately Reaper doesn't sell an exact figure of that type. There are a couple of other figures that might have worked but we both really liked Lanelle's base, so I took on the task of converting her to wield two swords and carry a shield on her back. The sword conversion wasn't too difficult; I bought three copies of Lanelle so I could take the sword from one and have a third as a back-up in case I messed something up. I carefully snipped off the sword, and used a pin vise to attach it. I used the baking soda and superglue combo to patch up a few small gaps. The shield was harvested from a 77024 goblin mini, and has a little pin in it which will attach to her back. I'm keeping them separate for now to ease painting. The original figure; this is the backup. The successful conversion; the red hair is stained from a previous attempted paint job that was removed with Simple Green. You can see the gaps a little on this side, but they've very minor and I believe paint will help disguise it later. There are no visible gaps on the outside. The shield will be attached right in the center of of her back; if positioned correctly I think it'll just reach the sheath on her belt and give the illusion that the dagger is just hidden behind the shield. The donor shield and unhappy goblin; I think this mini will make a nice battle-scarred goblin with a tragic past.
  4. These look like fun. 26 hours left.... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1004971769/skrap-runtz-3d-printable-miniatures-0?
  5. Done and based. Gloss was killing my photo though. May go back with a matte. Not right now though.
  6. Good lord! More still on the way. I gotta say, "wow!" Vallejo metals may as well be Magic. It's so much better! This time tried using sepia ink to line their deeper areas, or bangles. No wash on the skin this time, but i did give in to using it on the outfits and clothing. Needed shade. I also tested two of them with Corax white primer and two with The Armory grey primer. Only thing that i noticed was it took more layers on the skin with the white. I thought it was going to be easier. Oh well. Any thoughts?
  7. Well, in case you haven't noticed, I'm on a bit of a goblin streak. Those pyros were fun, but now it's the Pathfinder Goblin Warriors! As I did previously, I took a picture of them out in the backyard, just to see how they'd look in as realistic of an environment as it's gonna get, another in my little "Mini pictures area" (Spoiler: It's literally just my desk with a piece of white paper behind it. Sorry to ruin the magic! ), and lastly one of my favorite goblin. Any constructive criticism is welcome! Sidenote: I'm still not confident enough to try out eyes. I'll get to that eventually.
  8. I'm really happy with the faces and the flesh on these little rascals. They also make me one step closer to having the whole 2018 Dungeon Dweller set painted, which is something that I hope to achieve someday, lol.
  9. So, In our 'modern' world everything is classified by species, genus, etc, and has a name... @Glitterwolf, @Chaoswolf, and their ilk are Canis Lupus, Humans are Homo Sapiens, etc What would the "Scientific" name for Goblins be??? Besides worthless Drow Slaves and Crossbow fodder...
  10. Greetings, Children of the Reaper... - I always think it's cheeky when entities pop up on manufacturers forums for a leg up; I do hope you will give me a pass, as I have contributed to the great Reaper Edifice (in a minuscule way) with a few sculpts in the past (Reaper Ron was kind enough to relieve me of a few Dregs.. Ghoul/Zombie sorts). I'm just tinkering with a little range of my own , perhaps more whimsical fantasy figures.. Got a batch of greens finished (two gang/factions.. enough for an initial mould).. and am immersing myself in a bit of hitherto unexplored social media (only got on FBook this year!). Have just set up a FaceBook 'Artist' page (please do take a look if you like, no obligation, am not flogging anything just now): https://www.facebook.com/midblightminiatures/?modal=admin_todo_tour And attached a couple of pics for you to examine... All the Beast/ Hope you US Denizens had a great Thanksgiving , Paul M
  11. Finishing up the Goblins from the Bones 4 core set. click for close ups and all that
  12. I doubled down on the armoured goblins from Bones 4 so I could do some simple headswaps and weapon swaps. I only used heads and weapons from the set itself. Really simple speed paint paint job, skin tone is Israeli sand grey primer, washed with Army Painter strong tone (brown) and then edge highlighted back up with light grey. Really like the look of these models, manage to look scary despite short stature. The hut is a 3d printed chicken coop from Infinite Designs, and there is a Frost grave plastic wizard in the background there as well.
  13. A memory from long ago: My roommates, Max and Winnie, were goin’ to the coast for the weekend. I would have liked to have gone along, but it was strongly implied that there would be much slap and tickle, and I didn’t wanna be a third wheel, and I did have things to do in town, and so I remained. I was a dedicated Warhammer player at the time, and there were miniatures to paint. I spent a good chunk of the weekend painting goblins. And when Max and Winnie returned from the coast, it occurred to me that perhaps the slap and tickle had been rather abbreviated. Winnie in particular was burnt in that way that indicates that NO one is allowed within three feet of her. I mean, she was SUNBURNT. I was kind of surprised -- she had dark hair and olive skin, whereas Max was more of the glow in the dark German/Irish guy -- but apparently, he’d remained under shade more, because he was a little red, but you could durn near see Winnie in infrared, she was so burnt. Get your hand within six inches, and you could feel the heat! And apparently, sleeping that Sunday night was a bit of an issue. There was literally no way the poor woman could lie down without feeling like she was on a well upholstered griddle. And on Monday morning, she’d had enough. “Doc?” she asked. “Do you know of any over the counter medications that will stop the agony of a serious sunburn? Or do you possibly have any drugs that will flatten me and turn my brain off until I start to peel?” “Regrettably,” I said, “I am drugless. But there IS a thing I know of that will pretty much kill the pain instantly, and can be had at any drugstore, although it’s not without side effects.” “And the side effects are?” “You will peel FASTER. And WORSE. And you will largely lose the tan you were looking for. Slather the stuff on today, and your pain will cease pretty much immediately. Tomorrow night, you will start to blister and peel. By Wednesday night, you will look like some sort of leper with cancer. By Thursday night, you will merely look freakish. And by Friday, you should be more or less presentable, as long as you’re not wearing a backless evening gown with slits upskirt.” “But the pain stops right away?” “Within a minute or two of application.” “Doc, the only parts that don’t hurt right now are my scalp, the inside of my mouth, and the soles of my feet. It literally HURTS to BLINK. Where can I get this stuff, and how soon?.” And we went out and got a large jar of Noxzema, and she and Max went into the bathroom and coated her with the stuff. And while I did not have any role in the slathering, I found her agonized groans of pain... and then pleasure, as the pain faded... more than a little chucklesome. And by the time their skins had absorbed literally most of the jar of the stuff, they emerged, much relaxed and refreshed, and able to wear clothes without constant low grade agony, and I was treated to a lovely dinner by the grateful unsuffering. And all was well. The following evening, Winnie looked like a pox victim. Thing about Noxzema? It cools the skin and kills the pain, but it also causes burnt skin to die quicker, and it blisters. Not PAINFUL blisters, but the skin’s moisture pools up under the dead skin of a bad sunburn, and makes you look like you’ve broken out in little pea-sized blister things. She looked like she had the plague. “I don’t &%@$# care,” she said. “I can sleep at night.” By the next morning, the blisters had broken... and she had begun to peel. And this began to bother her, because her skin was still quite sensitive, and little floppy patches of skin flopping around whenever she moved, under her shirt, was starting to bug her. By Thursday morning, we’d resorted to stripping her down to her skivvies and literally peeling her flesh off in strips. And SHEETS. She was literally peeling in sheets. Max in particular was fascinated by this, and began trying to perforate the dead skin in order to get as large a sheet off at one time as possible. And his fingernails were apparently irritating, and before long, she was screeching and growling and cursing like a sailor to get Max to stop trying to peel hanky-sized chunks off, it felt weird enough as it WAS! And while Max kept trying to beat his personal best, I looked at the sheets of skin I was peeling off. An inch wide, or more, and sometimes two or three inches long. Translucent, sort of, but a sort of taupe color. Tatty. Torn. And I wondered... And I ran and got a wire clothes hanger, hung it on the lamp next to me, and began hanging strips of human flesh from it, as I peeled them off Winnie’s back and shoulders. Yes, I know it’s weird. Even Max noticed. “What are you doing?” “An experiment,” I said. And Winnie slept better than ever that night. And in the morning, I looked at the hanger with the strips of skin on them. They were still a sort of tannish color, and had dried. They looked all the world like tattered little banners. I picked the hanger up and held it sideways. The strips had dried and stiffened, and now they looked like tattered flags, flying in the wind. The experiment had been a success. I took the hanger with the strips of flesh, and ran to my workbench... ...and an hour later, several of the Goblins of the Evil Rune were now carrying staffs with banners, flying in the wind. They looked great. When Winnie saw them, she was a little bumfuzzled. Max, on the other hand, thought they looked awesome. And upon realizing the sheer METALNESS of a goblin army, charging into battle flying flags and banners made from HER FLESH, she actually took a weird sort of pride in it. It's not like SHE was using the skin any more. Me? I just liked they way they looked, and the way they almost flapped in the wind... Couple months later, I was at a store to play a game. A guy was examining my critters. “Okay, what did you make the banners out of?” he asked. “I use tissue paper, but yours don’t have a texture. What, did you coat them with something? What IS that stuff?” And without missing a beat, I answered, “Human flesh.” “No, seriously.” “Sunburnt human flesh, peeled slowly from the spine of a screaming woman,” I said. Completely deadpan. Making eye contact. He hesitated. “Seriously? Sunburn peelings?” I nodded. “And what did the woman think of this?” “At first, she screamed,” I said. “But later, she sorta got into it.” Still completely deadpan. He looked at me funny, and walked off. Later, I stomped his Bretonnian army into the ground. He kept looking at the goblins’ banners....

Two true oldhammer legends!
  15. Up on the place recently were a few of those dungeon-dwelling jerks, Goblins! Rebel Minis finally won me over with their Anniversary Goblin Jester mini: The rest of the Rebel crew: They're also joined by a handful of Goblins from Bones 4:

  17. The goblins. this is a single set containing a small warband of 9 goblins 5 armored two non armored and 1 warlock The plan for these is to make Ice goblins. Going for a blue skin tone and frosted bases. All of the Armored goblins save for one require assembly. I was pleasantly surprise how easy they came off the sprues. Didnt need cutters. Though you will need to scrape a bit off the tab points but all in all they go together very easily. This bad boy is one piece.
  18. Hey there! I decided to hop back on the RPChallenge wagon! These guys have been languishing on my desk, just in need of some touch-ups and basing. So I knocked those out, and I'm calling them done. They'll be fun to use as a marker or something. I did a WIP on my blog, feel free to go check it out! I update there much more frequently than I post here. Hope y'all enjoy them! C&c is always welcome!
  19. The Night Goblins Moonclan Grotz venture forth from their fungus-infested caves to do battle in the Nightvault. Being so small and weedy, they compensate by being many. There are nine of them, one more than the eight starter positions on the game board. So yeah, I went with the fungal theme... pic heavy, click if you dare!
  20. Calling these little maniacs done. Not the greatest paint job ever and I should probably have done something - anything - with the bases, but oh well. They were a ton of fun to paint. For those who hadn't seen the WIP thread, these guys are old Night Goblin bodies (sent to me by the ever-amazing @malefactus ) with heads from the Frostgrave plastic gnoll kit.
  21. @malefactus sent me some old Games Workshop plastic night goblins, and instead of putting them together properly I decided to stick the heads on the bodies of some Frostgrave plastic gnolls. There's another one but he's badly unbalanced (in more ways than one) and keeps falling over.
  22. Here is the last model in the force to be painted before break starts: the boar chariot. I believe I will make my deadline!
  23. The last of the troops are on the board! I may hit my deadline yet.
  24. Painted these three little brave fellas for a friends orc army. They are anxious to see some carnage.. :o) Any critiq or comment are apriciated.
  25. The next phase of the army has started. 10 wolf riders, as well as an extra orc mounted on a boar.
