Hello and greetings fellow Reaper members. I am here with what i hope will be a consistent wip. I am working on Goblins. I have a unique fondness for Goblins. Sometime back in the late 2000's I had a successful MTG Goblin deck. There was the early incendiary version. Then there was the later beat down deck. Most of the time I won in five turns. These goblins will be given away as a Christmas gift to my family members. Long ago I came across some goblin pillars. I painted them using testors enamels and gave them a marble finish. That piece was given to a close high school friend.

 

I currently have two sets of the 89003 pathfinder goblins. I also have two sets of 77024 that i will paint soon. I am waiting for the goblin war chanter and goblin pyro set to arrive here. I am going to paint the first batch in a typical green. The second set will be painted as my favorite goblins from the Lorywn set. I am doing two batches of each the same way. I am going to use Future floor polish to seal them. I will then begin experimenting using oils. I still need to get some brushes and thinner. It will be a learn as I go experiment. The second set will have yellow, orange, black and brown colorings. Some will be getting markings similar to hyenas. The goblin pyros will have some osl.

 

I am also experimenting with my photo setup to produce nice crisp images. I have ditched the light box and am using a dslr. I am using two clamp lamps. with fluorescent bulbs. If anyone has some more tips on how I could get better photos I would appreciate it . I have been reading through the shutter bug forum. I believe it may be some more trial and error and better photo backdrops. I am proud that these photos are better then my first posting. The more i practice the better I hope to become.

Here is where i am at with the first goblin with two different backgrounds. I call him sharp mike in honor of the recipient.

Gracious Zoot.

      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.

      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.

      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...

      Along with the Pyros, I also painted up a set of the Goblin Warriors. Another Bones 1 set that had excellent detail and great character.
       
      Sculpted by Ben Siens.
       

       
      I liked these little guys enough that I think I'm going to pick up a set in metal and try for more precision.

      Going back through a few of the (many, many) unpainted Bones figures, I decided to paint these. The longer I spent on them the more I loved them.
       
      Sculpted by Ben Siens
       

       
      The colors were experiments that I think worked pretty well for these guys and the details were excellent (even though these were a Bones I release).
