What a stoner. (Goblin Manace continued)


Recommended Posts

More to come for this little dude. 


Tried doing a couple things people suggested in my other projects. Mixed inks into paints, went thinner on paint and more layers, focused on less colors and more mixing. 


Pretty happy so far. 

Will be following up with damage report, but had to post.


Always good to have feedback if you see improvements.

Here's the battle report:



1. Tried using less paints overall and trying to combine them more.  Win!

2.  No washes.  None.  I'm trying my best to see if I can improve my layering and use less of the washes (think Dr. Faust painting) and it worked pretty well.

3.  Used an off-white MSP "Skeleton Bone" to lighten colors for highlights.  Worked great!

4.  Focused really, really, really hard on not trying to rush and simply layer 3 or 4 times if paint felt too thin.  Worked, but still getting my thinning down.



1.  Tried using a MSP Rattle Snake leather, but good lord it was not mixed well.  Even after shaking the stupid thing for a full minute, it still came out kind of soupy.  Wondering if this is me or the color?

2.  Eyes - once again tried the chibi eye effect, but it was not coming out.  I do two strokes to line the eye on top and bottom.  Then fill in the direction I'm going to have him looking.  It just didn't work this time.

3.  Ochre Yellow belt...meh.  


These little goblins have proven to be a great practice from one to the next.  Some are great some are poor, but they all teach me something new.  The Goblin Skin seems to work best with Vallejo Refractive Green base and Game Color Goblin Skin over the top.  Will complete these little guys with that tone.

I love these cute goblins!


Try popping off the tip off the leather color, mixing all the way at the bottom with a paper clip, then putting the tip back on, cap back on, and shake for another minute.  I had some paints I swore were ruined straight from the factory that were resurrected by this.

      So awhile back I was horrified to discover that some old un-finished minis had sprouted a strange orange mold. I gave them a deep clean and seemed to have solved the issue (spoiler: I did not and it's affecting nearly all my minis... but that's a problem for another time).

      As a reward for enduring the cleaning, these goblins deserved to finally get painted.

      First up are these two baddies from one of the Bones 2 expansion sets.

       These guys, being earlier bones, are a bit on the rough side, and definitely out-of-scale with the others. But that does help them stand out a bit.

      Next up, we have our "heavy hitters" from Bones 3.

      I like these sculpts a lot better. There's a uniformity in the face structure, while still having individuality between models.

      The final batch of wimpier goblins from Bones 3.

      These guys are the mookiest of mooks. Poorly armed, and poorly armored. These are the guys that get sent in first to soak up some arrows.

      It's nice to finally have some painted goblins. Though my bag full of 50+ more unpainted goblins still taunts me.  I have plans to paint them in a few different shades from the yellow-green used here, to a fleshy yellow-tan, to a pale fleshy-grey.  Hopefully that'll break up the duplicates and add some variety.  But that's a future project.
      After painting all these guys up I am tempted to finish the set with the Goblin Honor Guard.  They're the only ones I don't have. I can't see myself getting much use out of them, as they're a bit more situational or decorative than practical. But my completionist brain says I need them.

      Reaper has so many incredible and different goblin sculpts.  Which ones are your favorites?

      I backed their previous Halfling Yeoman riding chickens 😁 so figured I'd give them a shoutout!

      Presenting the Brewmistress, a Goblin Mage from Games Workshop, this diminutive herbalist can be found plying her trade along the winding road between Veilmouth and Silverton. For two coppers she'll let you take a swig of whatever she's brewing at the time, while her potions are always beneficial, it's probably best not to consider what's in it.
      Despite getting a little lazy with the ingredients rack towards the end, I'm really pleased with how this one turned out.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
