Pull my finger! Goblin prank or demand...


Recommended Posts

It's the weekend and you know what that means - lots of painting.

 

Got two little baddies here that are a nice departure from my Goblin Menace group I've been invested into.  I'm sure one of these green baddies is yelling out a command to go attack something, but how fitting to say, "Pull my finger."  Goblins humor.

 

Battle report!

Wins:

* Tried priming this time with an all metallic spray.  This was the Army Painter's Plate Mail primer.  Worked pretty well considering how much ground I needed to cover with the metallic.  Note that this did not have a tackiness to it like my little crab did with the Vallejo Leather primer.  Strange?

* Taking a first run over the armor with Nuln Oil helped save a lot of time.  I then went over some of the other areas of the plate with Vallejo Metal Gun Metal.  Win!

* Tried doing a rusting look over the plate with Agrax Earthshade - win.  Looked nice and grimey.  

* Since these were already dirty, I figured why not add some damage to the plate and weapons.  Added rust and blood effects to the weapons and it came out pretty good I think.  Added some needed character.

 

Misses:

* The "Pull my finger" goblin doesn't have really good clarity in the sculpt to get two eyes definined.  It wasn't bad to only have the one, but would have preferred two eyes. 

*  The teeth look pretty bland. Used a white and yellow color mixed but it looked muddled.  Tried to show separation with black line.  Meh.

* Originally had their lower cloth as warlord purple, but it just didn't fit.  Covered it with Gnoll Hide MSP, but even that looks kind of drab.  I feel that was a good chance to pop up the colors, but fell flat.

* Used the Breast Cancer Pink again for the mouths.  Still works well, but needed better definition for the rest of the mouth.

 

These look pretty decent. I'll have to come up with a fun base or story for these two.  I also snagged the regular goblins, so coming up with something cool for all of them may be a good challenge to come.  

 

As always - any areas you see for improvement?

@Great Khan ArtistI'm in heavy basing mode this weekend. I'm finally turning my WIP's into TGTD (Thank God They're Done).  

 

I should have them done-done tomorrow.  That dang milliput has to set first. Waiting is the worst.

 

Thanks for the feedback on the blood and spray on the plate mail. Was kind of fun to make it look like these boys were actually battle hardened.

Me too. I found some guys that have been on my paint table for years. I discovered I'm okay with tabletop paint jobs, I have more fun this way. 

 

I once tried to speed dry bases by putting them on the top of the oven while I was baking. It did not work. The bases melted. GW did not feel sorry enough for me to send replacements.

@Great Khan Artistreally GW? You expect me to pay that much and not be able to bake with these or use them a hot pads? You mean to tell me you're willing to eat the majority of money i make, but your products can't deal with the heat of my frustration for waiting?  Seriously?

 

... at least that's how that goes in my head.  In reality it'd go.  "Oh.   Right.   Oh course that wouldn't work.  I should have tried microwaving it."

      Done and based. 
      Gloss was killing my photo though. 
       
      May go back with a matte. Not right now though.

      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.

      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.
