Speedy the Gobbo

Recommended Posts

Hey All! This was tonight's "project." I am not a fast painter. I've never had to be, and tend to enjoy taking the time to accomplish something beautiful. However, there was this goblin staring at me that's been primed for several, several months now. So I decided to give myself 1.5hours to see what I could accomplish. Again this doesn't seem like anything approaching speed, but I've been giving some thought to commissions and if I'm ever going to attempt something like that, I will have to gain speed. 

 

SO! I guess I'm asking what grade you guys would consider this? Too fast? Not enough detail? Too much detail? I really have no idea as I've always just painted for fun and for beauty. This guy is obviously pretty hideous, having several flash lines and various spots I'd normally spend lots of time removing and filing. I'm not very skilled at slapping paint on, dropping the brush, and walking away... Suggestions?

Please excuse the horrible lighting. I don't have my normal equipment set up. I NEED to set it up as I still need to post the excellent Spring Exchange I received as well as the Dino Guy when he's finished.

 

-K

 

P.S.: He does contain some of the legendary color known as: "Drow Nipple Pink" LOL!

I would definitely call this tabletop plus! I would put it on my gaming table with no qualms. :) 

I find that the really saturated greens as opposed to darker, swampy greens help a lot when I'm doing minis for the table.

Good job.

 

I find animals really easy to speed paint. Anything with a ton of sculpted details, not so much; I always go over my time limit.

 

I've heard that you can draw attention to one area (often the face) by painting it up a little nicer than the rest of the mini and people tend to ignore that rest of the mini isn't as good.

      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...

      Finishing up the Goblins from the Bones 4 core set.

      I doubled down on the armoured goblins from Bones 4 so I could do some simple headswaps and weapon swaps. I only used heads and weapons from the set itself.
       
      Really simple speed paint paint job, skin tone is Israeli sand grey primer, washed with Army Painter strong tone (brown) and then edge highlighted back up with light grey. 
       
      Really like the look of these models, manage to look scary despite short stature. 
       
      The hut is a 3d printed chicken coop from Infinite Designs, and there is a Frost grave plastic wizard in the background there as well.
