Hello everybody, first time posting here. Normally I only paint one or two minis a year for my pen and paper games, but since my skills would never improve that way I decided to embark on a quest to paint my entire stack of minis that accumulated over the years.
The mini below is going to be one of my characters. I was looking for a female half-orc with a more roguish and sassy appearance than usual, since she will be raised in civilization. I found myself out of luck; most half-orc minis seem to look stereotypically brutish. So I gave this hobgoblin archer a half-orc makeover. Since I had two of them I painted both, going to use the one with the purple colour scheme.
Good morning all,
so my group of six hobgoblins has finally been completed, the female archer from Reaper, the Shadowrun punk goblin and now these four Hackmaster Goblins. It feels like I've been working on them forever but in reality, I probably started working on all of them in mid-November, so I guess it just feels long, and wasn't actually too god-awful time consuming.
Like the other hobgoblins, I worked on their skins all together and they are pure orange, I kind of deviated I think a bit from the official Monster Manual that talked about them being orange to red toned. I did throw blue noses on these ones however, as they had pretty good noses for the coloring.
And with these, I'm putting in lots of photos because they are in kind of poses what best show from a number of angles, so hopefully this is okay. The photos are pretty small so they shouldn't make anybody's life too miserable.
And one question if anybody knows. Does anybody have an inkling who actually sculpted these? These I think are back from around 2003.
I tried to make sure the armor looked worn, as I didn't figure this rag-tag bunch of beasties would be taking too good of care of their items, so hopefully it doesn't come off as too shiny. I didn't make it too rusty however. I did throw in some washes of rust brown here and there.
Anyways, hope you all enjoy these little creatures! I think I'm done with hobgoblins for a good, long while!
So here is my second hobgoblin that I've completed. I've actually got a pile of six hobgoblins, the Reaper Archer, this one and four Hackmaster Hobgoblins. Every so often I try to work on figures with at least some similar color schemes to make me work a bit more efficiently. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. With all the hobgoblins, their biggest commonality was the skin tones, after that they kind of branched out.
Anyhows, here's hobgoblin number two, from a set of Shadowrun Metahumans. The set came with two gnomes (that I've already posted) and a cyclops which I'll get worked on after I'm hobgoblinned out.
This guy ended up being pretty colorful. I had a full mohawk to work with so I had to throw some color into that! with those side lines of hair, I wasn't sure if those were supposed to be hair or some kind of cyborg cables, but in the end I opted for hair. Gave me a chance to throw a bit more color around!
