60006: Goblin Warriors: Finally, a post from me!


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody. It's been a pleasure and honour to be able to watch and learn from you guys' submissions. And it's been fun for me to give my undeserved criticism to your amazing paints.

 

These were the first minis I ever painted (this was back in December). They were painted with a box of Tamiya paints which I've since discarded. They are set in Freebooter inset/lip bases. The fish bones were created with a ring I bought for $1 in Shanghai. This ring has a cut-out of a fish, and I stamped it into milliput to get this effect. It's probably evident that I was more concerned with getting the paint in the right spots than I was with the consistency and thickness of the paint. I also learned a lesson about what happens when you decide it's a good idea to paint with pure black out of a 10 year old Testors bottle.

 

I'm not particularly proud of these, but I have no plans to repaint them because they're my first minis! :)

 

I seem to have lost the 4th guy, but I'm sure he'll turn up somewhere.

 

Without further ado, les gobelins!

      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.

      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?
