Knarthex' Reaper Goblin Shaman. (Hangout Mini of the Month for March)

Recommended Posts

So here is my hangout mini of the month for March, the Reaper Goblin Shaman, 02876.

I have removed his base, and managed to save the little spider sculpted there on...

I have also since taking the pics, primed him...

 

post-14271-0-64720400-1488171341_thumb.jpg post-14271-0-39755100-1488171342_thumb.jpg

 

I am wondering what colors to use on him.....

 

My dilemma is thus:

 

I have 2 sets of the Ral Partha AD&D series Goblins painted up, (10 in all)

I also have 16 Ral Partha Goblins from the Fantasy Collector series, Fantasy Armies...

I also have some old Citadel Goblin Chariots and wolf riders...

 

Now all the 'Parthas are painted up with Polly S Goblin Flesh paint, which is Tangerine...

 

The Citadels are 'Green-skins'...

 

These guys don't match the sculpts in either of those 2 lines, so would look kind of odd mixed in with them....

 

Sooooo.....

 

I think that these guys are going to be painted BLUE, as the 1st ed AD&D Xvarts from Fiend Folio.....

 

(and because it will drive Buglips up the wall....)

The problem with the mini is the nose or lack thereof. To what is generally considered my mind, Goblins should have pronounced, long, pointy noses.

That aside, blue sounds good, perhaps, with areas going from purple to pink.

Differently colored eyes! Is he hugging a flag ..?.. with a bat for a flag pole ornament. [?]

 

Edit: I just found the Buglupsian version of this thread and I see differences in the sculpt ...mainly around the left foot (on BtG's copy I can see through the legs...there is an open space).  Maybe it is just the angle of view.

Saw the other Goblin thread.

His skin is already looking super cool! It's such a neat purplish-bluish, almost iridescent looking. :) Keep it up!

 

Huzzah!

Thanks!

It will keep getting progressively lighter Blue as I progress through the Scale 75 "Sky and Ice" Blue paint set....

I am liking the skin tones....

I wonder if I should give him the same color hair that I did my Chainmail Orc Druid? (MSP Red Hair Triad)

A warband of Red Heads!

      Just thought i would put these up to show off the new party making their way through saltmarsh.  A party of six graduates from the civilized lands, roped into fulfilling a debt by their mentors.  At least they are working together...  they arent my finest work but for 6 hours of painting, they will do nicely for our little gaming group and the group enjoyed the surprise of coming to their second session to discover they all had custom painted minis!
       
      we have a Halfling fighter
      an elven thief with a fixation for daggers
      a halfling bard
      the blue dragonborn priest of Protos
      the black Dragonborn warlock (had to create the head.  I couldnt find a dragonborn mini with an 8 strength...)
      and a Human ranger from the backstreets and slums
       
      hope you enjoy them, i dont know how long they will last....

      This is the second of my dropfleet starter sets.  The fleet represents the United Colonies of Man (UCM).  After humanity was chased off the planet earth and forced to scatter to its colonies to lick their wounds, the colonies united and formed an armada to take back the home planet.  These ships are the final gasp of mankind to keep from becoming nests for a truly invasive species.  the game itself is a little different from Most because battles are fought in nearspace around planets.  The map is a planet viewed from low earth orbit  and the ships can move from high to middle and low orbits, each having an effect on the ship speed and who can attack what.  The game itself is pretty fast, a starter fleet battle will resolve in about an hour for us on the rare occasions when i get to play and the sides are pretty evenly matched although they have very different play styles.  TTcombat took over the license this year and saved the game from fading away and have put quite a bit of effort into new miniatures and rewriting the rules to fix problems and make the dropfleet game compatible with its companion game Dropzone.  now you can run a companion game allowing the two games to interact on a limited basis which, i think adds a lot to both sides, if you can find that many players...
       
      I decided to takes some liberties with these vessels.  i wanted each ship to be distinctive and easy to spot on the game board so the grid pattern built into the armor of the ship, which is usually blacked out, i lined in white and then traced over with various florescent colors from Scale 75.  The effect was not quite what I was after but it's still pretty good and certainly usable on the field of battle.  The ships are a starter set of 3 crusiers (2 heavy 1 light) and 4 frigates.  The base color is black with a midnight blue ghost tint and then highlighted with white and flouresents
       
      Hope you enjoy them!  I certainly enjoyed painting them!

      Time to get the year started with a little space adventure!  It took me about a week of spare time to get this fleet assembled and painted.  Space ships are one of the few miniatures i find where less is more and although they look intensely detailed, there really isnt that much to work with.
       
      This is an enjoyable game that I wish i had the opportunity to play more often but, time being what it is, i am limited in what i am willing to teach people to do and I get tired of always having to explain the rules.  Anyway, the Scourge are a bunch of nasty alien body snatchers who have invaded earth, forcing the remanents of humanity to go hide in the colony worlds to rebuild for the re-invasion of earth.  They also have some of the coolest ships!  These were done mainly with airbrush work except for some of the lights and engine fire.  I started with the badger metal colored primer and then sprayed the front with plasma fluid ghost tint and the back with blue ghost tint winding up with a really wonderful color shift across the minis.  The last piece is a leftover Aquan dreadnought from a game called Firestorm Armada I used a slightly different color profile so it would blend with both this game and the original firestorm fleet (okay i have a soft spot for spaceships.  I just wish the games would play half as cool as they look!)  This is basically a starter fleet consisting of three versions of the Cruiser class and 4 Frigates.  That and as I said, the dreadnought for good measure!
       
      Thanks for looking!

      Painting this guy up for ex's husband for their new campaign...
      Again, nothing much yet, but gotta keep track of colors....




       
      He's been sitting on the shelf of shame for a while, and the skin was done with GW Tanned flash, but I am going over that with SC 75 Arabic Shadow..
       
      eyes had been done at some point, so exact colors unknown...
       
      check back another time to see progress....
