Hackmaster/Ral Partha Hobgoblins-lots of pictures

Recommended Posts

These are amazing!  I think you got them just right.  They have such personality, and the blue noses are a great touch.  Perhaps they are all from the Blue Nose Clan, who are known to be quite fierce fighters.

Very well done! A lot of expression in these miniatures. It really brings them to life.

Thanks much! Yes, I really like this set because they are all hobgoblins of course, but each one has its own unique style, personality, and body type. You've got the lithe one with the sword, the chubbier, older one with the axe overhead, and then the more muscular two in action.

Yes, the Blue Nose Clan, certainly not to be trifled with.....

I love that skintone and the armor is excellent!

Great job!

Thanks Glitterwolf, hopefully the armor gives off a "yes I'm metal but not very shiny because my owner doesn't take care of me too well" vibe. That's what I was going for.

nice

 

I would add some brownish red rust stains to the Armour to help  sell the uncared for look.

Believe it or not, there's Already some there, probably just not enough.

They are a WONDERFUL collection of BEAUTIFULLY painted Hooligans. Each one has an unique personality. 

I love the skin tones & your metalwork. The basing is SPLENDIDVERY WELL DONE!

I love the distinctive noses!  Imma steal that idea if you don’t mind...!

Don't worry, you wouldn't be stealing it from me,  as per the grand old Monster Manual:  " Their faces are bright red-orange to red.  Large males will have blue-red noses".

 

So if anybody you'd be stealing it from Gary Gygax, not me!

Thanks Malefactus!  I hate to say it but the basing is my least favorite part of doing miniatures.  It's just painted corn meal and then some static grass on the places I didn't actually put corn meal.  In the good old, pre-internet days, I used to never base my miniatures, but I saw how it makes things look so much nicer, so jumped on the basing bandwagons.

These are beautifully done.

Thanks Red Knekk, really appreciate it.  I think however I'm suffering from a Hobgoblin overdose, so no idea when you might see another one of these fine orange fellows. I do have my plan to do a "Goblins of the Rainbow" or "Goblins of Benneton" series, but that's another one of those plans I just have to find time for.

Yeah I’ve been slowing down myself. I really like the orange tones, though I’ve never painted skin that color myself. I’ve done rainbow dwarf, so I’d like to see a goblin equivalent :)

      In the thread "Metal Minis We Would Like to See" I posted about getting a triple figure pack for all possible uses with your adventurer. Figured I'd post an image of one I used back in the late 70s when I played Chivalry & Sorcery. The mounted and foot figures are Ral Partha and the dead one (luckily never had to use him) was an Orc casualty figure (manufacturer unknown) modified by using an extra RP knight. And yes, I do know how to spell complete; I'm referencing one of my favorite books, The Compleat Enchanter by L. Spague deCamp and Fletcher Pratt. Check it out for a very fun read!

      This is a repaint of a mini I first painted in the 80s. If I recall the bottom says 1983 Ral Partha. I do not know the figure ID or sculpter, but the folds on her cloak were gorgeous - they pained themselves. 
       
      I did the repaint as I have a character who is a teenager - and could not find an appropriate modern mini. I've never repainted something from my youth, I am generally to nostalgic. The before is the pale skinned one.

      Another deep dive into the abyss...
       
      This infernal figure was torture to pin and glue, and the storage of it is devilishly tricky because of the super bendy spear.





      I really wish that minis produced with pole arms / spears would use a bit of stiff wire overmolded with the pole arm / spear casting.
       
      I have had to adjust this spear so many times. I must have done something really evil in my last life...

      I ain't even gonna try to feed this beastie lemongrass...
       
       



      Known for its deathgaze and horrific flatulence, it was universally feared by adventurers.
       
      But, if some brave adventurers would gather milk, the local creameries would produce Death cheese.
      I was surfing through some posts and saw the catoplebas mentioned, so I thought that someone might enjoy seeing one.

      I've been rummaging through my mini hoard and found all kinds ancient treasures, boxed sets with the original inserts!
       
      My stupid question is this, is anyone interested in photos of the boxed sets for identification purposes? The collection goes back to the early 80's and is from a plethora of companies.
       
      If members are interested in miniature identification, then should there be a dedicated thread where members can post pics of their boxed sets and still carded minis? Or is there already a thread for mini identification?
