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.
Goblin Command (77349)
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.

Goblin Warriors (77444)
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.

Goblin Skirmishers (77445)
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?
Okay, so maybe he's not smelling his cloak. But it sure did make a fun alternate for why he's posed like that.
I didn't do my normal battle report because i neglected to take photos while i was going. I'm happy with this guy. Kept it very very simple. I'll still have to base him and a little clean up on the cloak, but overall I'm happy with him.
Merisiel, Iconic Rogue. The original artwork is very good but this is one of the early Bones models that did not translate well to the medium. She flops over, the weapons did not come out well, and much of her detail is guesswork. I even had to sculpt her a nose because she didn't come with one. I tried to follow the artwork more or less, but it wasn't worth the effort to spend too much time on her.
