Grott War Boss

Recommended Posts

My results form World Wide Miniatures day.  Figure 1 of 3.

 

This is actually the first GW model that I have painted.  Not really sure how the colors relate to the standard color scheme, but I think this worked pretty well.

 

Comments and Critiques welcome.

In GW terms this would be a Night Goblin.

 

When I acquired the model, it didn't have any of its retail packaging.  I knew it was GW, but my Googleing to figure out what it was came up with both Grott and Night Goblin references.  I was confused. 

 

Was there a terminology change somewhere along the way?

Grott is the new thing. Night goblin is the old. 

GW blew up their world so they could rename everything stupidly and have strong claims to IP.

 

Got it.  This model was actually cast in metal, so that makes it a bit on the older side and probably originally marketed as a Night Goblin.

In GW Terms Grot is a Goblin in the 40K Universe, Goblin is for Fantasy.

Night Goblins are a special tribe.

Grot spilled over to AoS (the replacement for WHFB):

I stopped following their fluff when they released AOS.

The old stuff was more to my liking.

      Due to a certain person working up my interest in Battlefleet gothic, (okay, really all you have to do is wave a new ship under my nose, its not really a challenge) I went into my archives to see what I could paint to scratch the itch.  So out of the archives I dug these ancients out of hiding to go from prime to painted.  I am not really sure of their vintage but they are old enough to be something I bought when I was 15 and they are actual lead GW minis, which I thought didn't actually exist!  Anyway, I thought others would enjoy them.  They are the same color scheme as my favorite imperium fleet (I might have a few...) and I was trying for that sharp bright color scheme.  I think I succeeded but to each his own.  I think these are a pair of old crusiers and a battleship but if anyone wants to try their google fu and identify them, have at!
       
      enough said, enjoy a little fleet action on a Monday!

      Getting all, I have just been painting up a couple of teams for my friends to play blood bowl again, I haven't played for years since I was in the Waterbowl league, it was fun to paint up some fantasy again been doing a lot of sci-fi-fi and Modern military recently so it was a welcome change and has spurred me on to dig out the box with all my unpainted teams in it and get one done each month.
       
      This was the progress of the Wood Elf team which are called the 'Bare Arsed Chiefs'


      Nearly finished just needs the bases/numbering doing 



       
       The other team team I was doing at the same time was a norse one same stage just needs the bases/numbering doing 



       
       
      Been fun as I said I'll get some pictures of my other teams done which are Skaven, Undead (with werewolves), halfings, Vampire Counts, Amazon

      The third mini from the Brigand trio (Gui, Bertrand, Hugo). He was a lot of fun to paint.

      Another figure from the OOP Bretonnian army.  I painted him up as an older Robin Hood.
