Goblin Hordes beat me...this time. Goblin Menace indeed.


Recommended Posts

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.

@chaosscorpionTom Mason.  There was a big kick starter for a bunch of them.  They are more comic style than straight up fantasy, but they are fun.  I thought they'd be good practice. 

 

Look up sculpter Tom Mason "goblin menace"

      Previews for Reaper's June releases just went up in the "Previews" section, and they're from the Bones 5 Kickstarter.  Granted, there's still April and May unaccounted for, but there are a number of large models from the Bones 4 Kickstarter that haven't been released at retail yet.  We already know they're suggesting that the Stygian Barge may never be released, but I'm hoping most of the rest will be.  By my count, all of these haven't hit the game stores yet:
       
      Narglauth
      Dragon Turtle
      Agramon, Duke of Hell
      Blacksting Wyvern
      All of the Fantasy Scenics
      Thunderfoot Behemoth
      Blacktooth Terror
      Dance of Death
      Mossbeard Treeman
      Skeletal Dragon
      Nyarlathotep
      Argent
      Gauth
       
      Am I missing anything?  Any word from Reaper about whether or not these will ever be available againt, outside of the Bones 4 Kickstarter?

      I was a little surprised to not see this already here.  I just got a 48 hour notification on a game called "Lurkers of the Deep" - it's apparently an expansion to a miniatures game, but in addition to the game they're also selling a bunch of 20s/30s pulp/cthulhu style minis.  (And a number of buildings, too.)  I'm not interested in the game, but I put down a 30 pound pledge to get a bunch of the figures and get the various free stretch goals figures.
       
      There's only another 46 or so hours left, so I guess that means it ends early on March 1st.
