Infamy One Shot #1 (Hob)Goblin Chieftain

Recommended Posts

Go or it!


That's a mean looking lance the Gobbo is wielding!


I was thinking the same thing!


Model coming along nicely.

Was to tired last night after PAX to paint, and too much RL happened today to paint much, but I got a little done...


Reading in MMI that Hobgoblins wear Black Leathers, I decided that since I am painting him as a Hobgoblin, those color choices would apply to the saddle and such on the mount as well...


So I blocked in the saddle and the straps with Decay Black....


Did another round of high lights with Brown Grey as well...

It looks a little stark now, but I plan on some glazes...


My DaVinci Maestro #1 kept fish-tailing on me....

Don't know why, brush is less than 6 months old, and barely used....


Comments welcome!

Again, not much time tonight....


But I got the next level of highlight on the Chicken, using a 50% mix of Brown Grey and Rainy Grey.

I also did the eyes with Purity White, followed by Marduk Yellow, then the pupil in Petroleum Grey.

The Mouth got "Monster Mouth", Pink Flesh.

Then a little touch up around the face...

The Hobgoblin just got his eyes done, with GW Scorched brown first, then as above, and the mouth as well.

A great reason to take pics, is it shows you all those places that you 'Elfed Up' so that you can fix them....


Comments and critiques welcome!

So semi on topic here, I did a layer of 50% mix of Kalahari Orange and Mars Orange, as my first step up the high lighting of the Chief's skin...

I did one of my 'swatch sticks' with these 2 and the Polly S Goblin Flesh, and the Mars Orange is almost, almost, exact for the OOP Polly S paint. Someone that had never used the Polly S before would likely never notice, and If you painted the same mini, using each paint, I would be willing to bet that no one would be able to pick out which was which....


As for the Steed, A 50% mix of Thar Brown & Brown Grey is the next step. I think I am going to need to glaze back now, but not sure which color / mix of color to use.... as I want to bring the the colors together with a more gradual transition...

So comments please!

I am going to send pics of him to the Infamy contest, and I would like to make the best showing I can!





One thing by the way side....

The fact that these 2 are RESIN, and NOT metal, is really throwing me off!

They just don't have the right 'weight' for their size compared to what I am used to! So I find that I am bumping them more than I should with the brush, the desk, etc as I manipulate them during painting....

(Been painting metal minis since '77, my reflexes are set up for that 'feel'.....)

Aside from trying to weight the handles (Which made it worse!) anyone have a thought on what I could do?

Or am I just going to need to get used to it????

Death chicken is looking good, but I feel like he could use an "all over glaze" of the mid-tone to tie everything together, I mean a really thin glaze and just making sure that those transitions are nice and blended between the shadows and highlights then you can go back in and hit it with some spot highlights afterwards.


As far as weight goes, yeah, it takes a bit of getting used to. Nothing for it unless you want to use a more hefty/weighted handle to mount the figures on to make it more like the metal you are used to, just use the hefty weighted handles for your resin figures so your metal aren't 2x as heavy!


ETA: As for the goblin, the shadows you can really tie in together with the shadows of the death chicken by using a dark blue glazed in there. Using color theory, blue is across the wheel from orange and makes for a great contrast with orange so it'd read darker, remember glaze it, don't wash it, make sure it's controlled so it doesn't pool and become blue, you want to tint the shadows and give the illusion of a darker shadowed area.

        Signum Workshop is a division of Signum Games company that specializes in the creation of high-quality fantasy miniatures in STL format for self-printing.
      Signum Games have been creating and casting fantasy resin miniatures for several years, and our miniatures have a lot of admirers from all over the world. 3D printers are nowadays becoming more and more popular, therefore we decided to join the market and make our miniatures more accessible to you.
      The imagination of our artists and modellers have no borders, and sometimes there are just too many new characters (or variations of one character) for us to be able to cast all at once in resin. But we don't want new characters to just gather dust on the hard drive and wait for their time to come. After all, now we finally can share all our new products with you!
        All of our miniatures have 32mm scale, which was not a suitable scale for some board games. All our models in files will be pre-assembled and have an option of individual parts.
        You can learn all about the quality of our models and to print files simply by clicking on the link and download a free model!
          The Signum Workshop project is only at the very beginning of its journey, so we will be happy to see your support, questions, advice, and comments on Patreon! 
      By supporting us on Patreon, every month you will get access to a new set of STL files of our newest miniatures.
        Dear friends,
      this set introduces 4 factions that will appear on our Patreon in the future.
      You will meet Plague fighters from the far East, proud warriors from the hot South, harsh warriors from the cold North, and adventurers from the mountains of the West.

      A new Kickstarter from Durgin Paint Forge coming late September / early October.
      Wasn't a backer of the previous ones, but I don't think there's been any issues.
      They've been working away at this one for a while, so most of the minis have already been previewed on their blog.
      Now live:- https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/durginpaintforge/the-elves-of-inneath-32mm-fantasy-miniatures?ref=user_menu

      I backed a previous KS these people did and even though it had some struggles due to manufacturers giving them problems, they still delivered and had a good quality product. It's resin and comes either painted or unpainted.
      Some of the stuff here is generic, but it's worth a look.
