Infamy One Shot #1 (Hob)Goblin Chieftain

OKAY

 

Took Ub3r's suggestion, and did 2 coats of 1 to 10 glaze with Brown Grey on the Death Chicken...

I like what this did, but a couple places may have been too much too fast....

 

Then did a high light on hisself with straight Mars Orange....

Think I am going to block him in more as it will make pic taking a little easier....

 

Keep the comments coming!

Death chicken looks a lot better to me. Just hit those few highlight "spot" highlights of where the light would hit him the most to amp up the contrast a bit tactically.

I really like the orange skin tone on the hobgob.. I've tried to do orange skin but always fall short. Great work.

Thanks!

All I am doing is painting the flesh like any other mini...

The color just happens to start with a dark orange.

I have found that I tend to obsess about the skin on any humanoid, but there really is no difference in the process.

I think we just tend to focus on it...

Just pledged for a Gob....

I know the pic is of a Green skin, but all of my goblins are painted by MM1, so he will be a Mean Tangerine!

I think his mounts name will be 'Forum Mascot'....

 

George

 

 

That is from the KS thread for this mini....

 

The Gob is certainly orange.....

 

***The chicken is giving me serious stink eye and hissing when I say 'Forum Mascot' though....***

So tonight's Pathfinder game helped break my painter's block, and I did a bit of work...

 

I high lighted the saddle and straps with Black Leather, though it is very subtle, don't know how well you can see it in the pics....

And started the metal work here with Victorian Brass...

Those 2 vertical slots in the saddle sides are the attachment points for the tabs on the inside of the Chief's feet...

 

Then started blocking in the metal on the Chief with Black Metal, and the leather straps with Decay Black, as on the saddle..

I think I am pretty much going to reverse the metal colors from the concept art. The Brassy color with steel goes nicely against the green skin, but with my doing him in Orange, I think it will be better to do it steel with brass bits....

Also not sure how much of his armor may or may not be leather instead of metal... Especially the Breast plate and greeves....

Any thoughts?

 

To anyone out there that has this mini and has not started.....

 

DO NOT assemble the Goblin!

 

There are just too many places that the mini gets in the way when trying to paint.

If I were to start him fresh, I would paint him in pieces, and then assemble him. All the places where he goes together are places where skin meets something else, except for his neck.

​The amount of stuff blocked by his helmet is driving me nuts, not to mention the shield and lance!

 

I am seriously considering stripping him, more in the hope that the Simple green will separate the super glue than being upset with the painting....

(Does simple green do that on a resin mini?)

 

Comments and critiques welcome!

So after suffering the indignity of bathing, (in simple green for 3 days)

 

***I will slay you horribly for that....***

 

to try and soften the super glue* binding him together, the result is.....

 

 

NOPE!

 

The paint came of well and I managed to break the lance off at his wrist....

 

It is a clean break, and should be easy to pin... 

 

I will have a bit more access to paint now, but over-all, it was not worth it....

 

 

 

*The super Glue is "Insta-Cure+" and has a purple label and cap.

It is the Gap filling type.

It is sold in partner ship with Hobby Shops, such that the shop gets their name and number on the label, as I have seen this stuff with different labels on it....

I found that on a dental supply site!

 

George

 

So back to work on him with primer tomorrow after the pinning...

 

Here he is after his bath....

you can see the hole for the pin in his wrist, and the pin holding the lance will be trimmed to fit...

What alchemical process do you speak of?

 

I am willing to try many things....

Place the mini in the freezer for a while (even overnight) and this sometimes weakens the glue.   Then carefully apply some sheer force to the joint (twisting across the plain of the glue joint) to break it up.  Be careful as I am not sure how brittle the resin will also become when you do this.  Make sure you apply the twist when gripping as close to the joint as possible and be gentle.

 

If you had some leftover sprue to try this one it might be worth it as an experiment.

Can certainly give it a try on some sprue!

Thanks!

I don't know if I'd try that "freezer trick" with a resin figure, you may make that resin even more brittle and break off pieces of it unintentionally, it if was metal, then I'd say give it a shot. At this point, just deal with the figure as is rather than risk completely ruining it.

 

ETA: Also, I think the "freezer trick" works best with normal superglue turning it more brittle and easy to break the bond, not superglue like you are using with the rubberizer added to it.

VERY good plan, let us know the results of your experimentation!

      Story
        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.
