Maledrakh's Goblins (Bones 3 + 4)

Recommended Posts

Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals?

These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously they sell well), but as such they should fit well with my existing Lord of the Rings Moria Goblin army I am slowly growing for Kings of War.  I have based them on my 3D printed 20mm round bases, the Bones 3 ones have a slightly different style as I have since developed the design, making the later types more hollowed out so I can avoid the minis always standing on a hilltop.

36 goblins are quite a handful to deal with all at once. Being nickled and dimed to death, or experiencing death by a thousand cuts as it were, is still dead.

The rest are just Rabble (in Kings of War Vanguard)

 

I generally do not like painting identical minis identically, so I switch things up slightly by painting each set of different sculpts in a different base colour, and randomly do the other bits. I keep some bits the same throughout, such as the weapons, shields, or helmets, and also have used the same strong quickshade ink and a very light drybrush with Team Yankee Maverick Khaki, a mid-to-light beige-ish green on all the minis.

This together with the bases give the entire group a cohesive feel, so they appear as a unit while still retaining a sense of individuality,

These are really quite quick to paint, just alot of them to do. I did them in between bouts of playing Payday 2 over the last couple of days.

This is sweet! Nothing like a horde of goblins to wake up a sleepy adventuring party. What do you use for your grass? Its a very natural blend.

      Off the Bones 4 Fan Favorites expansion, the Hell Hounds. Woof woof.



      Three surprisingly cute massive hellish hot dogs, with lavacracks and all. And they have spiked collars with a massive ring on the top.


      And very obviously male. Those are the Dogs' Bollocks!


      Again, these do look better IRL than in the blown up pictures. Much better, to my eyes at least.

      How to paint lava-look minis:

      Start with a stark white basecoat. Drybrush the following colours starting with heavy pressure to lighter pressure with the darker colours:

      Bright yellow, golden yellow, orange or peachy pink, dark red or wine red, dark brown, dark grey/black, pure black.

      Use a big, soft brush (such as a make-up brush) and make sure to wipe a lot of the paint off the bristles (more than you think!) and build the colours up gradually to avoid streaking.

       

      Be aware that when painting light to dark, they will look wierd and as failures almost up to the very last coast. Keep with it!


      I did the bases with black flock, as they have burned everything to a crisp.


      Nice doggies?

      -

      I put them on 40mm bases. These are sculpted by Chris Lewis and made in Bones Black PVC.
      They are currently available from reapermini.com

      These minis were finished on December 4th, 2020.

      Hello everyone, I hope you're having a great Black Friday. Here are pictures of 50287, Cain the Cyber-Troll sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
      This Chronoscope model was designed by Wayne Reynolds, Winner of the Reaper Con 2011 DYOM (Design Your Own Miniature) Auction. It is also available in Bones Black version under SKU: 49028.
      I added the katana on its back to be faithful to the concept art illustration and painted it with Reaper MSP paint.
