Spugg stood on the cracked mud field in front of his home, holding his club at the ready as the foe approached.

 

"Look what we got here, boys," the bandit leader said. "Looks like Mr. Gobbo wants to play rough. That's adorable, innit?"

 

"You get outta here, or I break yer legs," Spugg said. "Don't want no trouble, but I got it waitin' for you."

 

"Ha! Listen to him," said one of the other bandits. "He thinks he's brave. Go run away, goblin. We'll let you keep your life. That's generous, it is."

 

"Hey," said the leader. "Got a math problem. There's ten of us humans--"

 

"Hey!" said several of the others.

 

"--ten humans, two orcs, and a half-orc. And one goblin. How badly is the match-up?"

 

Spugg thought a moment, then raised a single finger.

 

"You think we only got you outnumbered by one? I knew goblins were bad at math, but..."

 

"Nah," said Spugg. "That's how bad I got you outnumbered." And he ran forward, club swinging into the leader's kneecaps.

 

My first goblinaid goblin painted.

I can't quite remember what mix of greens I used for the skin. I know the basecoat was HD Turf Green. As a side note, the HD colors do work pretty well. One coat over a black primer, and it had good coverage. I was surprised.

I tried to use different leather colors for all the different leather bits. The inner bit of his cloak is CDA barbarian leather. Tanned shadow for his loincloth. I used a Scale75 paint for the boots. Not a huge fan. They seperate out pretty badly. I had to open it up and mix it with a barbecue skewer to get it properly mixed. Even then, it was thicker than most mini paints I've used. Even thicker than Citadel paints.

The fur accents on the boots and the cuffs are a base of slate grey from Scale 75, with rainy gray drybrushed over.

Base on the back of the cloak was dark shadow, with dark skin as the highlight, and Citadel Nuln oil to darken areas.

 

The base was done using Happy Seppuku's broken earth stamp. Primed it black, painted Reaper PP volcano brown into the cracks, and then Ginger Cookie over the top. In hindsight, I probably should have gone with something that was more of a light brown rather than tan. Ah well. Still doesn't look too bad.

      Goblins!
      So awhile back I was horrified to discover that some old un-finished minis had sprouted a strange orange mold. I gave them a deep clean and seemed to have solved the issue (spoiler: I did not and it's affecting nearly all my minis... but that's a problem for another time).

      As a reward for enduring the cleaning, these goblins deserved to finally get painted.

      First up are these two baddies from one of the Bones 2 expansion sets.

       These guys, being earlier bones, are a bit on the rough side, and definitely out-of-scale with the others. But that does help them stand out a bit.

      Next up, we have our "heavy hitters" from Bones 3.

       
      I like these sculpts a lot better. There's a uniformity in the face structure, while still having individuality between models.

      The final batch of wimpier goblins from Bones 3.

      These guys are the mookiest of mooks. Poorly armed, and poorly armored. These are the guys that get sent in first to soak up some arrows.

      It's nice to finally have some painted goblins. Though my bag full of 50+ more unpainted goblins still taunts me.  I have plans to paint them in a few different shades from the yellow-green used here, to a fleshy yellow-tan, to a pale fleshy-grey.  Hopefully that'll break up the duplicates and add some variety.  But that's a future project.
       
      After painting all these guys up I am tempted to finish the set with the Goblin Honor Guard.  They're the only ones I don't have. I can't see myself getting much use out of them, as they're a bit more situational or decorative than practical. But my completionist brain says I need them.

      Reaper has so many incredible and different goblin sculpts.  Which ones are your favorites?

      I have to confess when I pulled this guy out of the core set I thought it was a goblin. In particular, it reminded me of a certain space goblin that backwards talks in riddles he does, mmmn.   So he's green.

      Finally got back on to some painting.  It was a minor win, but just basing this dude feels good to be done.  One cool thing i thought was fun is that i put a footprint in the mud under his left foot.  Kind of a small, but cool detail. 
       
      Done.
