Goblin squad (pic heavy) - finished

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

 

As I recently finished an orc squad, I’m now focusing on a goblin one. I’d like to share my progress with you.

 

These will be used for tabletop gaming, in DnD campaigns I recently started DMing.

 

They’re all reaper minis. On these pictures I had just removed the mold lines, glued the separate parts and put the priming on :

- 03850: Armored Goblin Spearmen (2) (the smallest one)

- 03462: Goblin Warriors (4)

- 03777: Cave Goblin Archers (2)

- 03838: Sakarat, Goblin Wizard

There are a few other ones for which I didn’t take pictures at the beginning.

 

I didn’t want to make them green, so I was going for a yellowish orange for their skin... But as I was wandering through all the paints at my local GW, I stumbled on that “Squig Orange” and decided that was the one.

 

So now they’re almost red :

And here are the others that I didn’t think about photographing at the beginning :

- 2 copies of 07003: Dungeon Dwellers: Bloodbite Goblins (2)

- 14095: Neek, Reven Sergeant

These last two already got some spare paint from other minis painting.

An excellent choice!  Team Tangerine approves of this, which will net you a great batch of the very finest minions that low pay and poor gruel can buy.  We may not be very bright, or competent, or loyal, but we can take a heap of abuse and are easily replaced!

Thanks all!

 

I put some work on the base colors. To choose them, I thought about where these guys come from in my fantasy world.

They originate in a small mountain that is stuck between a desert and a peat cog.

So for the colors, I chose some tan for the desert animal fur (camels, fennec foxes, ibex goats). For the leather and wood, brown will do. They would have limited access to any dye, except eventually to peat from the cog, so that makes a dark grey color.

As they will be used for tabletop gaming, I also need an easy way to distinguish them.  So I

thought about giving them different hood colors. A trade route goes through the cog, so they can probably loot some colored fabric from time to time.

I haven’t put the brown on yet, but here’s my progress:

Same principle with these guys :

Wizard and squad leader:

And not much work on that one either, as I didn’t do the metallic paint yet:

Some more work on these guys. Base coats are all done, I think I managed to make them all have a similar “flavor” with the orange, tan, grey and brown.

 

First, the cannon fodder (no pictures of the green one’s back as he’s got no pants on):

CC405588-A4D9-4656-A38D-20C540007FCD.thumb.jpeg.c5a7f0b3fa581741b52c0eef395846cb.jpeg34D79D78-A588-4936-821C-680CDBF435E0.thumb.jpeg.78f665c2cd409dc99e4c860835dcf512.jpeg

 

Then the approximate archers:

The ones that mean serious business:

The one that actually knows how to fight:

The annoying one who managed to learn a spell:

And the happy squad leader:

Now that the base colors are on, it’s time to give them some individual attention. I don’t know yet which one will be first. More to come. ^_^

You are kind of tempting me to get the guy with the two swords...

 

 

 

I really like him, very cool sculpt with a lot of personality.

The Goblin Lads are LOOKIN' GOOD. Just one little critique: shield are not made of metal. Only the boss & edges would be metal.

The shield itself is normally a non-splintering wood like alder, or linden...it gives you a chance for some color.

Well done indeed! Convenient color coding, and they look that proper mixture of wretched, desperate, hungry, and vicious you want in gobboes. Keep us posted!

Holidays are over so I’m back to work on these guys. Very little progress for now, I took Malefactus’ advice and gave the shields some color.

I’ll try to add some drawing on the right one’s shield.

Ah.  A freedom fighter. 

 

Very noble! 

 

Yah finding out he doesn't have pant while your painting is a bit of a surprise too. :blink:

      Goblin Menace indeed!  I was doing fine with the other group of goblins I did 2 weeks ago, but these little green bast...guys were not as fun.  
       
      Wins:
      * Found an EXCELLENT new paintbrush - Master's Touch from Hobby Lobby.  Dang! I've been missing this level of spring in the bristles and fine edge with them.  Love it. 
      * Tried diluting steel color with black ink to help with application.  Worked great!  Will do again.
      * Switched the Sta-Wet Palette paper that came with it to just simple parchment paper.  I don't know who uses the actual paper in the Sta-Wet Palette, but that stuff is terrible!  
      * Still using as much breast cancer awareness color pink (got like 4 bottles...need to use!)
      * dry brushing the hair came out much better this time.  Lighter touch and more layers - worked better.
       
      Misses:
      * Eyes this time were more difficult.  Tried doing those chibi eyes, but it wasn't as expressive this time.  
      * Tried a base color of off-white in the eye - also didn't seem to give as much character to them.
      * Washed with Agrax Earthshade around the major bends and muscles.  Didn't seem to work as well this time.  I think it's time to try that black lining on the next goblin and see if Iike that instead.
      * using the new brushes have a bit of a learning curve to them.  Much more springy and reduced my need for pressure, however this caused some interesting streaks when I didn't mean to.  
      * I did it again! I tried using my finger to dab off an excess streak and ended up taking off some of the baselayer AND primer.  With that being the second time it's happened - the best way I can describe what I did was the scene in Top Gun where the flight tower Captain gets a second fly-by.  
       
      Overall the color of Goblin skin still works great, but basecoat of VCG Flat Green may not have been best.  May just add black to Goblin Skin and then lighten it up as I go next time.  
       
      Attempted different primers on them:
      Girl with spear - primed in black with Vallejo Black spray primer
      Chainmail goblin - primed in Vallejo Leather Brown spray primer (didn't like that as much...)
      Stone chuckers - both of them were done in paint-on Vallejo grey primer.  (worked best)
       
      Overall, they aren't bad, but they aren't my best.  Once I base them I'll feel better.  Might even go back after a few days to touch them up to see if I can straighten out the things I missed.
       
      As always - open to feedback.  Thanks for the tips on the Metallics thread.  I put it to use, but still learning.

      I recently finished up this book nook.  I was inspired by Black Magic Craft (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxOWFbYNTOo&fbclid=IwAR0KPsFmpNYhvNHcca_3uWtP4U3fLk1F8InSrhXuLQB94Fj0EPAc_wwDbHo).  I made this for a good friend that I have played DND with who is moving and wanted a little going away present to give to him. Painted with mix of Reaper Paints and Vallejo paints.  The terrain is 3D printed, stalagmites are from Thingiverse and the ruins are from Printable Scenery (https://www.printablescenery.com/) that I modified on Meshmixer.  This was my first time working with poured resin and LED lighting, was a lot of fun and now I am definitely going to make one for myself.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a cute but deadly little lady goblin. 14178, Skralla the Reven Hero was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I painted her with Reaper MSP paint.
       
      According to the rumours; Skralla grew up near the Shores of the Sea of Stars, far from Monglash. She heard the tales of Razig and his undead crew, and has always wanted to join them. Knowing that Razig would never accept her unless she proved herself a true pirate, she raided Aizen Krahl one night and emerged with one of the dwarves' coveted guns and a trail of bearded corpses behind her. Now that she has the guns, the murder, the pillaging, and the rumming down, she has thrown in her lot with Varaug in hopes of meeting Razig one day and joining him. If only she had stolen ammunition, or knew how to load the wretched thing. Still, it serves her well with a blade tied on, and maybe Razig can teach her shooting.

      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.

      So, I recently purchased the "Nolzur's Marvelous Pigments Monsters Paint Set". Came with a bunch of Army Painter washes and paints and yadda yadda yadda...
       
      But it also came with this neat Owlbear mini, which is what I have to share with you guys today!
       
      First eyes I ever successfully painted. But in my defense, I'd only ever tried on minis with smallish eyes, which was NOT the brightest idea I'd ever had. The left eye turned out really good in my opinion, but the right one was a bit messy.
       
      I also need to do so me touch-up work on the base. I got a bit careless with the wash, and uh... Yeeeeah.
       
      Lastly and leastly, I didn't upload an outdoor picture as I usually do. That'll probably come later, provided I don't forget.
