Maglubiyet Ral Partha 10-521 (Hob & Gob Chief Diety)

Recommended Posts

So since I only had 3 main projects and the diorama going, I am starting something else!


This is Maglubiyet, Chief Deity of Goblins and Hobgoblins, who made his first appearance in the old 'Deities and Demi-Gods' from AD&D first edition...


Maglubiyet is described as a giant (11 feet tall), black-skinned goblin with flaming eyes, powerfully-muscled arms and sharp talons. He is said to wield a mighty coal-black battleaxe that constantly drips blood.


The mini is pretty cool, nicely cast with few mold lines, one of which I found while doing the initial base coat, of course...


So here he is with a base coat of MSP Blue Liner:

The eyes are gonna be fun....


If I had a couple more of these, I think they would make awesome statues for next to the doors of a temple...

This is going to be a cool figure to see how you progress on this one. I think Jim Johnson sculpted this one.

Ask and you shall receive!


Not much, I just base coated the chain and scale mails with MSP Brown Liner...

I didn't realize that there was both scale and chain until the brush was on him....


I had planned on adding Grey Liner for under the 'Plate mail' parts, but time ran out tonight.


I will take pics when I do that coat(s) to show the 3 currently available liners on 1 mini, all next to each other, should be elucidating!


The plate will be steel, the chain and scale Brass of different hues {I hope!}




If you look closely at the bottom edge of the mini in back it looks like it has "JAJ" signed on it...

So there you see all 3 current liners on one mini!

Looks sweet so far.  Are you going to do up the whole Powers of Law box, Knarthex?  It's been a while since I've seen the entire set painted.

PS: I just realised that I've hit 500 posts.  And it only took me ten years.

Alas, he is the only one I have... Evil Plane rescue....

Because of your rampant pewter purchases, I've been looking over the Bay for old minis as well. I found one that looks eerily like Emirikol the Chaotic.

So pm me a link already! always loved that pic in the DMG...


He was the primary focus of work today at paint day,,,,

Steel is Thrash Metal

Scale is Victorian Brass with Inktense chestnust

Chain is Old copper with Inktense wood

I am thinking that he is a god, what would he, or his followers thing would be the best thing to line / pad his armor?

Answer is Elf Skin!

So all that goth Basic Flesh with Agrax Earthshade

The Wrappings on his fore arms is Iroku with Agrax

And his belts are a 50% ix of Brown and Black leathers...

So, once I stopped looking at the Rampancy thread, I actually got some painting done! :blink:


Worked on the Elf flesh padding for his armor with Light Skin, Moonray Flesh, a couple of glazes with a mix of Golden Skin and light skin, and finally a glaze of the aformentioned with a tiny drop of Agrax Earthshade added..


Did his Skin with MSP Drow Elf Shadow and Drow Elf Skin.


Touched up his 'eyes' with some Purity White.


All silver metal got a wash of Didi's Black Magic Ink, thinned with water and Future.

He has been fighting me every step of the way....

The brush has bumped into sooooo many places while trying to get paint on.....

Eraser brush and q-tips to the rescue many, many times!

      From the Bones 4 core set, this is the subset called "Classic Horror", #130 through #135.
      A take on some of the monsters of the 1930's Universal movies series fame, with both male and female counterparts. I based the Mummy on a 35x25mm base as his integral base was both scenic and rather wide and I did not want to cut it down. The others are based on 30mm round lipped bases.

      I am slowly working through the Bones 4 core set. Today we come to #13, the Warrior of Chaos. I don't know what Reaper is calling this mini, if they even have a name for it yet. I imagine it would be something like "Bloodcurdle Angerpants, Anti-Paladin" or "Gruff McDuff, Evil Fighter". (Feel free to use these names, Reaper )
      But it clearly is a Warrior of Chaos.

      This model has the look, what with horned helmet, bulky full plate, skulls, straps, furry shoulders, heavy cloth cloak and the tower shield.
      ...and I was going to put a picture of a chaos warrior from the GW webstore here for comparion, but they obviously did not want me to, so that did not happen. No matter.
      Did I say Warrior of Chaos? This is clearly a Champion of Chaos, what with such a massive rock to put their foot upon! Feet, even!
      I had to base it on a 40mm base. Champion sized at that.

      I have the higher ground! You cannot win! Also, I have a full set of Chaos Armour and all you have are tighty whiteys!
      B4Core #13 Champion of Chaos
      Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017
      Sculpted by ??
      Bonesium PVC.
      40mm round lipped base
      should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future

      A large mini ragepainted sloppyfast in under an hour just to blow off some steam and get it off the tray it has been standing around for ages on.
      Well, large mini I say. Compared to most other dragons of the Bones kickstarters, this one is rather smallish.
      However, back in the day when heavy metal was king, this mini would be considered a large miniature of a dragon.

      Please use the full SKU and name of Reaper minis in the titles of your Show Off threads, per forum guidelines. You can find this information on the blister card or in the online store. I also like to give credit to the sculptor in a tag, so people can find their favorites.
      We have a high volume of posts generated from this challenge, which is great! But it's also creating a lot of work for the mods. Ladystorm has already urged folks to comply with these guidelines.
      As an experiment, this project has been moved to be a bi-monthly challenge again, that seemed to have worked so until further notice that is our format. The longer time frame theoretically will give less stress to painting, and allow more complex jobs, and more sinister challenges.
      Reaper only? - No.
      If going on vacation, can I paint a mini(s) ahead to cover that time frame? - Yes.
      Are speed paints acceptable - Yes.
      Can it be a mini started previously? - Yes.
      Based or unbased? - Yes.
      Do minis for exchanges count? - Yes.
      NEW RULE - Size Equivilancy
      (This list is subject to change as bones 3 releases)
      Medium and smaller = 1 ea
      Simple Terrain (plain floors, walls) = 1ea
      Complex Terrain (http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Terrain/latest/03518 or such) = 2 ea
      Large (Giants and the like) = 2 ea
      Huge (Most dragons, Demon Minotaur Lord, etc) = 3 ea
      Bigger (Kally, Khanjirra, etc) = half of quota rounded up
      Colossal ("Tianot,") = quota
      Due to the variable nature of a CAV I compare them against a generic 28mm figure and the Avatar large figure. I take height and bulk into considering if it is worth 1 or 2 figures.
      If it's not in this list, it counts as 1. (not yet updated for the CAV II figures)
      If you have a question on the size, please post it here, and I'll address them individually.
      Much like last year, the idea is to help those of us that normally paint VERY little or not as much as one would like, to start painting more.
      You challenge begins...now!
      And Our Mantra:
      If your name is missing, or you believe your count is incorrect, please PM me. Please note: to make counts easier, post in the bi-monthly thread and include the tag RPChallenge
      The objective:
      To paint 52+ minis throughout the course of the year via bi-monthly quota
      (each bi-monthly thread will have the quota listed as well as the master list)
      What qualifies:
      Darn near anything!
      Any material!
      Shelf of shame minis from ages long forgotten!
      Exchange minis!
      Speed paints!
      Armies! (Though I'd encourage perhaps something outside the army as well)
      Any Size!
      Etc! (I think that covers everything)
      Year long challenge
      Pick a miniature of size large or greater to complete in the Jan-Feb Block. In Nov-December, purchase that same mini and repaint in the same scheme to see direct side-by-side improvement or changes in your methods

      Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual.
      All the information you need should be here.

      As usual, the new format holds a "hard mode" challenge!

      The Last quarter of the year 2019 because real life is a bugbear sometimes.

      Your challenge is: 18!

      Bonus Challenge: 1!
      Fall! Paint a mini that has fallen over (for whatever reason) (Pompeii guy works for this too!)

      Bonus Challenge: 2!
      This is Halloween! - Paint a mini using only colors that have black, orange, and purple in the name. You may also use the paints available from this year's ghoulie bag.

      Bonus Challenge: 5!
      Festive feast - Since both US And Canada have their Thanksgiving in this time bracket - paint up a mini (figure or terrain) to have some food being presented, if you can do a drinking vessel to be painting like a full glass, even better!

      Bonus Challenge: 4!
      For-lack-of-a-better-idea- December 15th is national Cat Herders' day! Paint a tabaxi, or any other mini featuring a feline. (It's a real holiday, go ahead, look it up)

      Hard Mode Challenge 1!
      Jack-o-lantern's light - Paint a mini where the only source of light would be coming from inside a jack-o-lantern. Pumpkin may be part of the mini/base or sculpted

      Hard Mode Challenge 2!
      Under Wraps- Paint a mini so that anything that any non-flesh (armor-weapons-cloth-etc) looks like it's patterned wrapping paper. This is assuming a humanoid figure. Dragons or such apply the same challenge to the whole body.

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!
