Ral Partha Orange goblin numero deux


Recommended Posts

So here's the second in my little series of orangey colored goblins. Did a front and a back on again just for fun, hope you all enjoy! As usual the NMM metal kicks my petard, but oh well, at this pace I might actually end up being decent at it in another fifteen to twenty years.

That may be the most pristine goblin blade in the history of goblinkind. I prefer to do members of the goblin family in shades ranging from yellow, orange, red, and browns. I like what you've done.

Yeah, I keep thinking I want to make their weapons a little rusty or something, but something always stops me. Some kind of rust-fobia maybe. Or maybe he just takes really good care of his stuff. A goblin clean freak!

 

Buglips won't take well to this...

We're a varied group you know. Some of us are very neat and orderly. Not many, but some. In any case, he could as easily just have freshly stolen that sword. Me, I like to keep mine nice and rusty. If the cut doesn't get ya, the tetanus will.

That's not a real goblin! His armour (and sword) are too well taken care of. Everyone knows that gobbies don't take good care of their stuff, which is why adventurers are justified in taking away their nice things.

 

On another note, all these orange gobbies are making me want to paint one really, really orange.

I was the exact same way for the longest time. I was too afraid to mess up my NMM with an attempted rust job. Thinned glazes of a few shades of browns or oranges in the right places can really make it look good. You're a strong painter, and I'd like to encourage you to get away from your comfort zone and just do it. Once you do, you'll be pleased at the realism you've added and won't go back.

It's probably just a bit of commitment phobia. I've done rusty stuff before:

which turned out okay, but it's just actually wanting decide to do it I think more than anything else. Making the commitment, taking the plunge. Good news/bad new is the next Goblin on the docket doesn't have much going as far as metal to rust up, but maybe one of htese days I'll be grabbing another one and can make him a little more dirt-appropriate..

      Good evening my Reaperhoovians!
       
      So just finished up this little blister pack of Shadowrun Elves sculpted by Ral Partha either latter eighties/early nineties, by Dennis Mize.  Two ladies and two gentlemen, challenge as always was figuring out what colors I wanted for them.  Being it's all funky monkey science fictiony, can't help but thinking of a little more lively colors and lively hair colors for the most part.
       

       
      and I figured the last figured I'd do as a Drow, no idea if there are any Drow in Shadowrun but painting's not solving world peace or saving lives, so even if there are no Drow in Shadowrun, nobody will lose a finger.
       
      And here's the group as it's all together:
       

       
      I wanted them to fit all in one page so I didn't put them on bases, and I painted the rim black, and I can see a little bit of irregularities on that.  Not sure if I may eventually actually either repaint the base or actually put them on bases so they don't fall over.  The biggest problem is after I take them off their temporary base, I don't want to touch them and that's where it all gets tricky.
       
      Anyhow, a problem for later, hope you enjoy these in the meantime!

      Back on my PC I can upload the final shot of the mounted knight Lucardus von Kemet. Because he is a famous character in the world of The Dark Eye, I put a sign on his base to give his name clearly to everyone. As a leader of the Undead and user of dark powers I gave him a look similiar to his underlings. He is a desperate man who wields war in the name of his demonic mistress. Painting process is in the wip forum.

      A few years ago (hmmm…2015), Iron Wind Metals did a Kickstarter for a Chaos Wars revival. The first two armies featured were orcs and elves. I got most of my compact orcish army painted a while back, but was looking at a new set of rules last week (Fantastic Battles).  I needed at least one more leader stand to use my Chaos Wars orcs, and I knew that I had a few orc leaders from that Kickstarter I hadn’t finished.  Happily, I was even able to find them among my boxes of primed figures on sticks.

      Hello all you Reaper Acolytes!
       
      So painted this one as a gift for a friend, now that she's got it, can finally show it off:
       

       
      A Thumper Standard Bearer,  I think sculpted by Richard Kerr.  
       
      It was so hard not go go all crazy Easter Bunny on this one, so added a few Easter eggs, quite literally.  Hopefully his banner is legible!
       
      After listening quite often and watching Anne Forester's Twitch channel, one great tip she gave was to start with your free hand using a white base instead of black.  I did so this time, so hopefully the banner text and the belt are a bit brighter than they otherwise would have been had I used a black base color.  
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and a premature Happy Easter to all!

      Good afternoon my Reapergogglians!
       
      So just finished up Ann Penchyk, a Shadowrun character apparently (don't know too much about Shadowrun still, after months and months of painting different Shadowrun figures.
       
      I really dig this little blister pack, where we have Ann dressed in her corporate 9-5 job, and then the another version of her, the "adventurer" version of her.  So with that in mind, I at least tried to keep her skin tones, hair color, et cetera the same so it looks like she just might be the same gal in different attire.
       
      9-5 Ann:


       
      and how she spends her time Shadowrunning on the weekend:
       

       
      and here they are together, side by side:
       

       
      This is the first Shadowrun orc I've painted and from what I could tell with all the other artwork I've found on line, Shadowrun orcs can be any normal person's skin color, so even though I thought it was a bit strange, I painted her starting out with Tanned Highlights and worked up and down from there instead of doing some type of green base.
       
      So ta-ta for now, hope you enjoy!
