Lidless Eye WiP: Goblin Town

Recommended Posts

Another recent project, some of the cave Goblins from The Hobbit's "Escape from Goblin Town" boxed set.

I had been looking for a set after getting Nord Game's "Revenge of the Horde" 5E monster manual.  Their obviously Peter Jackson inspired designs inspired me in turn:

A friend is planning a move and trying to downsize his collection, so his "Escape from Goblin Town" became mine.

Here's the first few:

And a close-up.  I may make them a bit more pallid:

Although I think the Hobbit Goblins look more like Ghouls, they are most definitely COOL Little Rogues. 

You are off to a SPLENDID start with them. Enjoy the process.

Yes, I think they're perfect for a range of things.  Ghouls, Mutants, Grimlocks.  I'm planning on having them pull double duty  as extra Poxwalkers for my Death Guard in 40k.

 

 

Also, some more colors have been added:

The Goblin King is unmistakable, due to his rather memorable song, dance, and death, in the movie... but those little guys could be anything you want...

I actually think he would make a great Fomorian as well.

The poor Cave Goblins have been pushed to the side:

IF they're lucky, they may be a "co-project", as I'll get the last of their bits painted when the same color hits the Plague Marines. 
As mentioned before, I think they'd make good Poxwalker back-up for the Death Guard.

All the Nurgle stuff is UBERCOOL whether 40K or War Hammer. SO it's an understandable switch, especially since the Goblins will work with the Plague Guys.

I am looking forward to both projects. Have FUN with it all!

Despite my previous abuse, the pox-ridden denizens of Goblin Town got some more colors (that were the same as what I was painting the Plague Marines at the time):

Goblin Town itself joins the queue:

The base colors were applied while watching the new Netflix "Castlevania" series, which seemed appropriate as Thorin plays Belmont.
