Infamy One Shot #1 (Hob)Goblin Chieftain

Recommended Posts

The Death Chicken Commences!

 

I had a little time tonight, so I continued with Infamy Mini's One Shot Goblin Chieftain.

 

First off, He is a big boy, so I am going to think of him as a Hobgoblin, instead of a goblin. (Sorry Buglips)

He will have Orange skin, as all my Hobgoblins do...

 

Secondly, this resin is very different from the other resin minis I have worked with, much softer and more flexible than the Forge World Iron Warriors Dreadnought I built, or Battlefront's resin vehicle bodies...

 

It is Fragile as Hades! Ias I was slowly sawing the chicken's lower jaw off the sprue with an X Acto saw, I broke one of the spikes where the reins attach....

5 minutes of unholy speech, and crawling around the floor rewarded me with the piece, which I carefully glued back into place...

 

I fear for the attachment of this figure to a base! 

The only point touching the ground is it's right foot, and the shape of it's ankle / foot /leg precludes driving a pin up the length of it's leg.

I may have to re-think that, and drill the hole anyway and hide the wire so I have a semi sturdy attachment point...

Thoughts ideas anyone?

 

As a temporary solution for painting, I drilled a hole in it's belly for a wire to support it whilst paint is applied...

 

Parts fit so far has been good, after removing sprue attachments etc. Left leg and Lower jaw...

 

Still lots to assemble, next will be the 'wings'...

 

This will definitely be a paint the rider separately job, and the way he attaches to the bird, he may get a wire for me to hide between his bum and the saddle, as the only attachment points there are the insides of his shins, and the straps of the reins....

 

Here is a scan of the Artwork that came with the KS:

The mini follows the art almost exactly...

 

And 2 pics of the Death Chicken so far:

Little bit of gap filling to do...

Amazing model, but looks flimsy at the ankle..

 

Pinning is mandatory, hide it with shrubbery or a little sculpted rock around it..??

Yep, pin it and put some foliage around it. High standing grass or rushes, glue around  the base and slightly up the pin.

 

Great looking mini.

This reminds me of Joust. Can't wait to see what you do with this.

It does have UBERCOOL potential.

I think attaching the left-up-in-the-air-talon to some rock might give it more stability. You also might consider basing him prior to painting.

I'm in a agreement with everyone else; try to find a way to hide the pin with tall grass/foliage/etc.

More work on the team....

 

I drilled a hole up the leg, after making a dimple with an X Acto knife, then a pilot with a pin vice, and finally the final size with the Dremel, moving very slowly!

I tried as best as I could to follow the thick part of the leg, and got a bit more than 1/4" in before I started breaking out.

You can see the wire I used, I bent it so that it will go straight down into the base when it is time....

post-14271-0-51238200-1461284387_thumb.jpg

 

I also used the Dremel as a router, to make the channel in the back of the foot for the wire to fit inside. You can still see it, but I didn't dare go any further, and if I putty it, the foot will look odd...

So I will need to put some tufts or something there on the base to finish hiding that...

Thoughts anyone?

 

So I then set about adding the wings...

so fragile....

Drilled into them for pins, made with straight pins, like from men's dress shirts, and attached them to the body with CA glue.

fit was pretty good, but the pinning left some tiny gaps that I filled with more CA glue, applied with the tip of an X Acto knife.

Then 2 light coats of P3 White primer from a rattle can....

Also started assembling the Chieftain Himself, the only pin I used here is in the lance, as it comes in 2 parts...

 

The shield got damaged coming off the sprue, so I tried to put some Green Stuff on it, I need to sand that still, and the he got a coat of primer...

There is a part on the sprue that I am not sure what it is....

Left in this one post-14271-0-46802200-1461285163_thumb.jpg

The thorny branch looking thingy....

 

The other piece is the reins, but looking at the concept art, I don't see it...

Any ideas anyone?

 

Thanks for looking and commenting!

Working...

 

Pics later...

 

Thought occurred, Did anyone get both this mini, and the Bombshell Babes Jungle Elf on Raptor?

That sounds to me like a diorama in the making....

Here we go with some pics and thoughts...

 

I started with the mount, using Petroleum Grey thinned with Scale 75 Acrylic thinner about 5 to 1. After that, I thinned Graphene Grey the same way, and sprayed it mainly in a zenithal manner, trying to start the high lights. Then I went back with the Graphene Grey and a DaVinci size 1 brush to bring up the high lights more...

 

I plan on going up through Brown Grey, Rainy Grey, and Thar Brown, and depending on what it looks like, some Brown and or Black glazes...

The high lights are kind of lost in the pics, but as I am trying to push myself with this, That is okay, as it will make the transitions smoother....{I hope!}

 

While waiting  for that, and pondering what and where, I started on the Chieftain.

{Got to think up a cool name for him....}

 

I started in the base coat on his skin, using Kalahari Orange, the same color I used for my Ral Partha Goblins earlier this month...

I plan on using the same skin tones, just blending them up more gradually..

This is the first Resin mini I do at this scale, and I assembled everything so that all the gaps would be filled...

Not sure now if I should not have held off on his arms, as getting the brush into some spots was an adventure...

 

So thanks for looking!

Leave comments with the door Goblin....

Looking good so far!

 

I like your pinning solution; I think it'll look good once you're all finished.

      This is the resin bust for the upcoming hair and makeup class at ReaperCon. It's a bit under two inches tall. Standard MSP paints for the hair and flowers. The skin tones are the new Bones paints - Ruddy to Pale Flesh.

      Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals?

      These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously they sell well), but as such they should fit well with my existing Lord of the Rings Moria Goblin army I am slowly growing for Kings of War.  I have based them on my 3D printed 20mm round bases, the Bones 3 ones have a slightly different style as I have since developed the design, making the later types more hollowed out so I can avoid the minis always standing on a hilltop.
       

      36 goblins are quite a handful to deal with all at once. Being nickled and dimed to death, or experiencing death by a thousand cuts as it were, is still dead.
       


      Goblin Luggits are the ones with two handed weapons in Kings of War Vanguard
       

      Goblin Spitters are the bowmen in Kings of War Vanguard
       



      The rest are just Rabble (in Kings of War Vanguard)
       
      I generally do not like painting identical minis identically, so I switch things up slightly by painting each set of different sculpts in a different base colour, and randomly do the other bits. I keep some bits the same throughout, such as the weapons, shields, or helmets, and also have used the same strong quickshade ink and a very light drybrush with Team Yankee Maverick Khaki, a mid-to-light beige-ish green on all the minis.
      This together with the bases give the entire group a cohesive feel, so they appear as a unit while still retaining a sense of individuality,
      These are really quite quick to paint, just alot of them to do. I did them in between bouts of playing Payday 2 over the last couple of days.
