I really love what you have done with him and truly think he is your best work to date. I am going to be honest though and tell you I hate that background and do not think it shows off the goblin or the the chicken of death to their full potential. It looks grainy to me and just isn't the right color for the bird thingie to stand out. Just my opinion and I hope I don't come across as snarky. Just letting you know I think you would do better in the competition with a different background.

 

That said, if you are sticking with that background, I will gladly tell you which pics I think are best. (I will do this when I get back from seeing Warcraft!)

Hmmm The Chicken is kinda grey, so is the Background, so Pochi might be on to something.

 

As of now.

YES! It was so good! Worth the wait and worth the extra couple bucks to see it in the "fancy" theater! (Previews for Star Trek and Suicide Squad look amazeballs!)

Okay, I stopped at Michael's on the way home and got some backdrops.

I did the same steps to each photo in the editor, and tried to keep the same 'shot' as well....

 

So what color is best?

Considering both the hobgoblin's colour, the death chicken's colour, and the overall exposure, I'm leaning towards the purple background. Black being a close second.

      Now, I have a pile of unpainted stuff. Time to reduce it by some amount. I got all of these from Bones 4, but I think that the rank and file goblins are from the previous kickstarter.
      Since I didn't want to play around with the poses I started experimenting with colour choices. Some classic orange, modern green, royal violet, baby pinks, icy blue and even a grey sorcerer.
      Some other points:
      Batch painted (apart from the experiments) NMM (it really teaches you much when you do it for large amounts of figures, I really love Prussian Blue and wet blending really helps in NMM) Experimented with using Vallejo spray paint: it gets somewhat tacky when it dries for a while, but that disappears when you paint over it with acrylic paint.
      Overall I like the detail on them, but some poses could be more generic for the rank and file goblins. In my personal the large sabre goblin is the worse of, it is a fun and interesting pose, but it only works for 1 goblin. 

      Now the photos are not the best (it was getting dark when I got the time to take them. Plus I have yet to make a good photo shoot)

      Let us start with Modern Green. The right hand side goblin has one of the better NMM sabres. Currently they have a gloss varnish. 


       
      Royal Violets and Baby Pinks: Both violets and pinks work. Sadly the photo for the violets didn't come out well, so you only get a top down shot of them. 


       
      I also found an old metal miniature at my local hobby store, so I included them here. If anyone knows where it is from I would appreciate if you could tell me: 

       
      Classic Orange: Now my favourite pose from the rank and file goblins is the spear. You can rank them up and they look like a real army! And they have a pose that works for defence, retreat and attack. The photo doesn't really do them justice

       
       
      Icy Blues and Grey Sorcerer: The sorcerer is a really nice sculpt. He has a nice pet spider on his back. sadly the sun was already pretty low and all other photos didn't come out well. 


      I painted the spider as a RedBack. See a lot of them here. 

       
      Armoured Goblins: they are fun, really like those sculpts. There was another armoured goblin in Bones 4  (I previously posted him). I don't think he really fits in with these as a goblin.

      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:- https://www.durginpaintforge.com/blog/ just look for the green renders!

      Not useful for gaming, but they look like lovely painting challenges:

      Arctic Encounter is a model displaying a traditional Greenland kayak hunter in a peaceful moment witnessing two narwhals - a mother and calf - passing by. The hunter silently observes, draws his paddle from water in order not to disturb them. The model is scale 54mm (1:32), and the kayak is about 16 cm. The whales are about 10 and 16 cm long for calf and mother, respectfully. I aim to make this as historically accurate as possible, but will take some freedom to adapt to the medium and make it visually interesting.   
      I won’t lie, there are a lot of parts. And tiny parts too. And you have to assemble harpoon, harness and bladder with wire, and lots of little bones and wire to hold everything in place. I will include a detailed instruction in kit. Don’t worry, it will be fun!    
      All the different parts of ‘Arctic Encounter’
       
      The Wanderer is a model showing a hiker on a hill with her dog, a Malinois Shepherd, resting and enjoying the view. She has a bottle of water in hand, but the set also comes with interchangable hands holding a wine bottle or a gun, allowing you to tell other stories with the model. She comes with a detailed backpack. The model is size 1:20, or 90 mm. The model comes with a large scenic round resin base. The base is about 95 mm in diameter.

      Midlam keeps doing exactly what I want. Rounding up my collection with original miniatures that pairs up well with the original.

      Yes, THEY'RE ALL METAL.

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      A Note on Metal
      We moving onto a lead free high quality pewter from a reputable metal dealer.  All our past metals had a high Tin content, but could contain a small quantity of lead (typically no more than 5%).  Even still, we cannot guarantee that any of our metal will be entirely lead free.
