So here is my second hobgoblin that I've completed. I've actually got a pile of six hobgoblins, the Reaper Archer, this one and four Hackmaster Hobgoblins. Every so often I try to work on figures with at least some similar color schemes to make me work a bit more efficiently. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. With all the hobgoblins, their biggest commonality was the skin tones, after that they kind of branched out.
Anyhows, here's hobgoblin number two, from a set of Shadowrun Metahumans. The set came with two gnomes (that I've already posted) and a cyclops which I'll get worked on after I'm hobgoblinned out.
This guy ended up being pretty colorful. I had a full mohawk to work with so I had to throw some color into that! with those side lines of hair, I wasn't sure if those were supposed to be hair or some kind of cyborg cables, but in the end I opted for hair. Gave me a chance to throw a bit more color around!
Ever since I saw this design in the Kickstarter, I really liked her a lot, and when they made her in metal, I had to get her. Of course between now and then many months have gone by but I've finally gotten her painted, together with some other hobgoblins I've been working on. When I read the Monster Manual for coloring it said "their faces are bright red-orange to red", so for whatever reason I omitted the red part and just went orange. I think she came out in any case reasonably well though.
I don't work very often with multiple-piece models, and with this chicky poo, I had to attach the hand and bow to her arm. Previously I've always attached pieces at the beginning, but this time finally listened to my reasonable nerd self and kept that piece separate, and attached it after the rest of the model was painted. I had previously painted the hand when I painted her skin elsewhere, but then attached the hand and bow and ended up priming and painting the bow after everything else was ready to go and that seemed to work out pretty well.
The hardest color choice I had on her actually was her bandana. Yellow was a last resort, don't know if it would have been better another color? Anyway, hope you enjoy her!
