  1. Presenting the Brewmistress, a Goblin Mage from Games Workshop, this diminutive herbalist can be found plying her trade along the winding road between Veilmouth and Silverton. For two coppers she'll let you take a swig of whatever she's brewing at the time, while her potions are always beneficial, it's probably best not to consider what's in it. Despite getting a little lazy with the ingredients rack towards the end, I'm really pleased with how this one turned out. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  2. It's the weekend and you know what that means - lots of painting. Got two little baddies here that are a nice departure from my Goblin Menace group I've been invested into. I'm sure one of these green baddies is yelling out a command to go attack something, but how fitting to say, "Pull my finger." Goblins humor. Battle report! Wins: * Tried priming this time with an all metallic spray. This was the Army Painter's Plate Mail primer. Worked pretty well considering how much ground I needed to cover with the metallic. Note that this did not have a tackiness to it like my little crab did with the Vallejo Leather primer. Strange? * Taking a first run over the armor with Nuln Oil helped save a lot of time. I then went over some of the other areas of the plate with Vallejo Metal Gun Metal. Win! * Tried doing a rusting look over the plate with Agrax Earthshade - win. Looked nice and grimey. * Since these were already dirty, I figured why not add some damage to the plate and weapons. Added rust and blood effects to the weapons and it came out pretty good I think. Added some needed character. Misses: * The "Pull my finger" goblin doesn't have really good clarity in the sculpt to get two eyes definined. It wasn't bad to only have the one, but would have preferred two eyes. * The teeth look pretty bland. Used a white and yellow color mixed but it looked muddled. Tried to show separation with black line. Meh. * Originally had their lower cloth as warlord purple, but it just didn't fit. Covered it with Gnoll Hide MSP, but even that looks kind of drab. I feel that was a good chance to pop up the colors, but fell flat. * Used the Breast Cancer Pink again for the mouths. Still works well, but needed better definition for the rest of the mouth. These look pretty decent. I'll have to come up with a fun base or story for these two. I also snagged the regular goblins, so coming up with something cool for all of them may be a good challenge to come. As always - any areas you see for improvement?
  3. More to come for this little dude. Tried doing a couple things people suggested in my other projects. Mixed inks into paints, went thinner on paint and more layers, focused on less colors and more mixing. Pretty happy so far. Will be following up with damage report, but had to post. Always good to have feedback if you see improvements.
  4. Goblin Menace indeed! I was doing fine with the other group of goblins I did 2 weeks ago, but these little green bast...guys were not as fun. Wins: * Found an EXCELLENT new paintbrush - Master's Touch from Hobby Lobby. Dang! I've been missing this level of spring in the bristles and fine edge with them. Love it. * Tried diluting steel color with black ink to help with application. Worked great! Will do again. * Switched the Sta-Wet Palette paper that came with it to just simple parchment paper. I don't know who uses the actual paper in the Sta-Wet Palette, but that stuff is terrible! * Still using as much breast cancer awareness color pink (got like 4 bottles...need to use!) * dry brushing the hair came out much better this time. Lighter touch and more layers - worked better. Misses: * Eyes this time were more difficult. Tried doing those chibi eyes, but it wasn't as expressive this time. * Tried a base color of off-white in the eye - also didn't seem to give as much character to them. * Washed with Agrax Earthshade around the major bends and muscles. Didn't seem to work as well this time. I think it's time to try that black lining on the next goblin and see if Iike that instead. * using the new brushes have a bit of a learning curve to them. Much more springy and reduced my need for pressure, however this caused some interesting streaks when I didn't mean to. * I did it again! I tried using my finger to dab off an excess streak and ended up taking off some of the baselayer AND primer. With that being the second time it's happened - the best way I can describe what I did was the scene in Top Gun where the flight tower Captain gets a second fly-by. Overall the color of Goblin skin still works great, but basecoat of VCG Flat Green may not have been best. May just add black to Goblin Skin and then lighten it up as I go next time. Attempted different primers on them: Girl with spear - primed in black with Vallejo Black spray primer Chainmail goblin - primed in Vallejo Leather Brown spray primer (didn't like that as much...) Stone chuckers - both of them were done in paint-on Vallejo grey primer. (worked best) Overall, they aren't bad, but they aren't my best. Once I base them I'll feel better. Might even go back after a few days to touch them up to see if I can straighten out the things I missed. As always - open to feedback. Thanks for the tips on the Metallics thread. I put it to use, but still learning.
  5. I painted up another ogre matriarch. she is so fun! This is Daisy, aka the Blonde Bombshell!
  6. Hello everyone, here are pictures of a cute but deadly little lady goblin. 14178, Skralla the Reven Hero was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I painted her with Reaper MSP paint. According to the rumours; Skralla grew up near the Shores of the Sea of Stars, far from Monglash. She heard the tales of Razig and his undead crew, and has always wanted to join them. Knowing that Razig would never accept her unless she proved herself a true pirate, she raided Aizen Krahl one night and emerged with one of the dwarves' coveted guns and a trail of bearded corpses behind her. Now that she has the guns, the murder, the pillaging, and the rumming down, she has thrown in her lot with Varaug in hopes of meeting Razig one day and joining him. If only she had stolen ammunition, or knew how to load the wretched thing. Still, it serves her well with a blade tied on, and maybe Razig can teach her shooting.
  7. Now, I have a pile of unpainted stuff. Time to reduce it by some amount. I got all of these from Bones 4, but I think that the rank and file goblins are from the previous kickstarter. Since I didn't want to play around with the poses I started experimenting with colour choices. Some classic orange, modern green, royal violet, baby pinks, icy blue and even a grey sorcerer. Some other points: Batch painted (apart from the experiments) NMM (it really teaches you much when you do it for large amounts of figures, I really love Prussian Blue and wet blending really helps in NMM) Experimented with using Vallejo spray paint: it gets somewhat tacky when it dries for a while, but that disappears when you paint over it with acrylic paint. Overall I like the detail on them, but some poses could be more generic for the rank and file goblins. In my personal the large sabre goblin is the worse of, it is a fun and interesting pose, but it only works for 1 goblin. Now the photos are not the best (it was getting dark when I got the time to take them. Plus I have yet to make a good photo shoot) Let us start with Modern Green. The right hand side goblin has one of the better NMM sabres. Currently they have a gloss varnish. Royal Violets and Baby Pinks: Both violets and pinks work. Sadly the photo for the violets didn't come out well, so you only get a top down shot of them. I also found an old metal miniature at my local hobby store, so I included them here. If anyone knows where it is from I would appreciate if you could tell me: Classic Orange: Now my favourite pose from the rank and file goblins is the spear. You can rank them up and they look like a real army! And they have a pose that works for defence, retreat and attack. The photo doesn't really do them justice Icy Blues and Grey Sorcerer: The sorcerer is a really nice sculpt. He has a nice pet spider on his back. sadly the sun was already pretty low and all other photos didn't come out well. I painted the spider as a RedBack. See a lot of them here. Armoured Goblins: they are fun, really like those sculpts. There was another armoured goblin in Bones 4 (I previously posted him). I don't think he really fits in with these as a goblin.
  8. Thank you @malefactus for recommending this guy to me so very long ago. He was absolutely perfect for my needs. Now it's just to bad I can't get a game in. Hmmm. his one eye looks a bit weird up close. Oh well, on the table he just looks confused. I'll need to look up who made him again in a bit, so I can put that info in the title.
  9. I'm fairly happy with these two, especially how the bases turned out. Other than that, I'm still working on consistent lighting and how top make the picture look good on both the phone and on a monitor. Also I may need to get some sort of air purifier, because the amount of dust that forms and how ridiculously quick it appears, is well... ridiculous!
  10. Big Boss Goblin for eventual theoretical Frostgrave. Fairly happy with his armor and jowels
  11. Found the 3d model while browsing Pinterest and reached out to the designer and they sent me the file so I could have it printed
  12. I'd got some of the Warlord imperial roman legionnaires free with a magazine. They are tiny for 28mm, with minis like the Oathmark dwarves towering over them. I've used the minis for spare parts but took an Oathmark goblin wolf rider head to make this heavy hobgoblin or goblin infantryman. The kit was a 'roman veterans' one with heavier armour and more battered shields than the more prevalent getup of a roman legionnaire. The paint job took about 30 mins ex drying times. A dark grey primer, drybrush of metal parts with Scale 75 black metal, skin with Scale 75 sandalwood, Vallejo dark red or chocolate brown details, then an all over Vallejo black wash. Think I will make more of these.
  13. They're not pretty but they get the point across. It was my first attempt at really pushing myself for speed. I cranked these out in about 4 paint sessions over 2 weeks with a goal of "not terrible table top". My DnD friends are in for a little surprise (many little green surprises).... More shameful and detailed photos can be found on my blog. Cheers, HMP
  14. Not exactly a speed paint, but still completed within only a couple of evenings. I like the way he turned out without all that much effort. I guess I got kinda lucky on this one.
  15. Anyone know a mini that is curled up in a ball? Preferably, a small female goblin, but small would work. Pretty much need a figure that appears to be rolling down a hill. It'll replicate a unfortunate victim of a cockatrice attack so even a crude sculpt would work here (crude being a figures from yesteryear). thanks for any help on this one.
  16. Since I hadn't seen many other paint jobs go by I thought people might like to see my goblin in power armor. And a blood nebula mercenary for scale.
  17. Drums! Tribal drums from the heart of the deepest jungles. The Goblins wage war. They spider heards will consume everything on its past and, when there's nothing left, they will leave the trees behind to invade the lands of men. Their Chief, riding the giant eight legged spider steed Sleipnir, is ready to lead them to victory. Here I wanted to try a particularly colorful palette to tap into the jungle theme. Maybe in that note it lacks a bit of green... first time I use this colored liquen. Maybe is too much? If you liked it, please consider following my instagram :D
  18. I wanted to create something to enter in the Paint It Pink competition this year, but I only had about a day and a half before ReaperCon. I knew that this wasn't going to win any awards, but it was important to me that I do something. I saw these goblins with their oversized flag and just went for it. The base is one of Secret Weapon's doric columns.
  19. I haven't posted for a bit but I have been painting. I have been painting mostly for D&D but some just because they are fun models. Luckily, the two cross over quite a bit so I get to paint fun models for D&D! I painted up these little goblins. I have the other 6 waiting to be painted. For these, I decided little greenskins. They are so cute!
  20. Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals? These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously they sell well), but as such they should fit well with my existing Lord of the Rings Moria Goblin army I am slowly growing for Kings of War. I have based them on my 3D printed 20mm round bases, the Bones 3 ones have a slightly different style as I have since developed the design, making the later types more hollowed out so I can avoid the minis always standing on a hilltop. 36 goblins are quite a handful to deal with all at once. Being nickled and dimed to death, or experiencing death by a thousand cuts as it were, is still dead. Goblin Luggits are the ones with two handed weapons in Kings of War Vanguard Goblin Spitters are the bowmen in Kings of War Vanguard The rest are just Rabble (in Kings of War Vanguard) I generally do not like painting identical minis identically, so I switch things up slightly by painting each set of different sculpts in a different base colour, and randomly do the other bits. I keep some bits the same throughout, such as the weapons, shields, or helmets, and also have used the same strong quickshade ink and a very light drybrush with Team Yankee Maverick Khaki, a mid-to-light beige-ish green on all the minis. This together with the bases give the entire group a cohesive feel, so they appear as a unit while still retaining a sense of individuality, These are really quite quick to paint, just alot of them to do. I did them in between bouts of playing Payday 2 over the last couple of days. 77444 Goblin Warriors + 77445 Goblin Skirmishers Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015 (and Bones 4 KS 2017) Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Bonesium PVC. 20mm bespoke 3D printed round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  21. Howdy, Last of the skirmishers... Kev!
  22. Howdy, Oh, look he's got a sword... Kev!
  23. Here is the last piece of the army: an orc boss to lead the horde. The model is called Grumlok and Gazbag, and I believe it's based on a Warhammer Online model. As an extra, there is also a new ogre tyrant. I picked up this guy to lead my combined horde of greenskins and ogres.
  24. Howdy, Goblins just want to have fun... Kev!
