So I began the mid tones on these guys skin, using the oh so carefully saved (From the late 70s/ early 80s!!!) and horded Polly S Fantasy Line Goblin Flesh (460)...

I noticed on the guy with sword and axe, that what I thought were pants, are on closer inspection, his bare legs, so he got multiple coats of Kalahari Orange during the mid tone painting...

 

I wonder if Reaper Pumpkin Orange will work in here some how, either as a mid or high light??

Any thoughts???

 

And I think I am going to name the guy with the 2 handed mace Buglips after our local Scape Goblin....

Why you ask?

Well take away the mace, and give him one of the 'tennis racquet' style bug zappers. Now imagine him looking at a big, juicy flying beetle, and concentrating on swatting it out of the air!

(hence the biting of his tongue as an aid to said concentration)

Eagerly awaiting the feast to follow...

Imagine him in a Cicada hatching!

 

(then again, knowing a bit about him, Buglips might try to use a cricket bat instead....)

 

So thanks for looking!

 

Comments and critiques welcome!

The muse didn't hang around to long tonight, after I got the Polly S Couatl Orange highlight on the skin, Some GW Scorched brown on the non furry boots, and some GW Stormvermin fur on 2 of them, that was it, on a night that I normally PAINT until 5 am, I was done at 1....

I did some work on these guys tonight, but need to get to bed as I need to get up in a few hours...

 

I will try to edit in the colors I used when I'm at work tomorrow...

 

So here are the colors I used, for your edification, but mine as well!

The leather hats were done with a 50% mix of  Black and Brown Leathers.

All metal Armor was started with Dacayed Metal

 

'Buglips' got GW Snakebite Leather on his Tunic, and VPA* on his pants

Looking good so far. Can't wait to see how these turn out. I have a few Ral Partha goblins that are so horrible (from my teenage years) that I would never, ever, ever take, let alone post, pictures of. (Think Testors automotive color enamel paints... done .. badly.)

Not sure how it works on Testor's. ..

Thanks folks!

The skin is coming along great!

 

 

These are shaping up quite nicely!

You guys just think that you are finally going to get some riders!!!!

Nope, not interested in any smelly goblins on my back, thanks anyway.

 

You're doing a great job on them, though.

I kind of want to send them to take a walk in your world Malefactus!

I keep seeing your goblins when I am painting these...

 

George

 

That's nice of you to say. If you need any Mushrooms to complete the image, give a holler...or a PM if hollering doesn't work.

Well I thought of one way to strip them. Basically, fill a pan with gasoline, put miniatures in, and toss a match in from a safe distance.

 

Pretty sure that'd get the paint off.

 

As bad as mine look, that's the safe bet. :)

NOOOOOOO!!!!!

***Sob, my poor, poor, pretties...***

 

The Knarthex school for troubled minis would be glad to help them!

 

 

 

 

For real problem mini's us regular paint stripper, the stuff you get at Home Depot or Lowes for removing paint on walls.

 

Just be careful, as the stuff is flammable, and hard as Hades on your hands!

 

Gloves recomended!

      It only took me 35+ years to paint these....
       
      Somewhere, in a box, are the tiny goblins which are the riders to these wolves. Paint job inspired by 72moonglum (mine are a rather poor second to the original I am afraid). https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64325-ral-partha-goblin-imp-wolf-riders-kind-of-pic-heavy/
      I iincluded a shot with the Reaper Warg to give you an idea how small these fellows are. More wolves for the forest! And I finally painted them - wow

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...





       
      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      Hello all you Reapervellians,
       
      So I had these figures sitting around and primed for probably about two or three years, and then while trying to start up another project, I ended up grabbing these.
       
      These are four new figures, sculpted by Dave Summers, famous for his Darksword anthropomorphic miniatures as well as decades of other finely sculpted figures, that he sculpted for Ral Partha's Chaos Wars game in 2016, associated with a Kickstarter if I recall correctly, and then a rather old figure, the female dwarf, who was sculpted by Dennis Mize back in I think 1977-1978.
       
      Nowadays of course, figures are a lot larger, but Dave Summers sculpted these four new dwarves to that old school 25 millimeter scale, which means they are pretty petite. If I remember afterwards I'll snap some kind of comparison photo with some common item. I always forget to do that for some reason.
       
      Anyhoos, here they are:
       

       
      and here's the lady dwarf. I separated her out because I actually have an older version that I did of her years ago as a gift for somebody, and wanted to show it as a comparison.
       
      Here's the one I just painted:

       
      and here she is probably already five or six years earlier:
       

       
      I had her on a much larger base in the original version.
       
      Anyhow, that's all for today folks, enjoy at your leisure!

      And good evening to all of you of the Reaper persuasion,
       
      So just finished photographing this guy this afternoon.  This is an Earth Elemental, originally from a blister pack of three minis, this guy, the Earth Elementals Lord I painted a few days back and an interesting looking iguana-like Earth Familiar, which is on my docket next.  This was sculpted by Jim Johnson and released somewhere in the nineties.  Fun figure to paint, not a drop of metal, but all sorts of different earth tones.  The only un-earthy tones are the crystals in his spine, which I painted blue.  I wanted to originally paint them green to match the crystal in the Shaman's staff, but I didn't think there would be enough contrast between the grass/moss around the stones.
       

       
      The little iguana familiar will be next!
       
      Enjoy!

      Hello everyone, here is a model from the early 80s. Ral Partha 02-912, Giant Rat sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I placed it on a 20mm base and painted in with Reaper MSP paint.
