2 Plastic Gobbos
Posted by MortiS-the-Lost –
Here's 2 goblins I painted recently.
First up is a Night Goblin standard bearer or possibly a Shaman (I can see him being used a either) which I think came from the 'Battle of Skullpass' boxed game of WFB 7th. It's a fairly simple miniature that I gave a fairly simple paint job in keeping with my small but growing band of blue-clothed Night Goblins (See my blue Goblin Fanatic Here along with a few other minis) This Goblins robes are Regal Blue highlighted up to Enchanted Blue, but I'm using slightly different combinations of blues on each of my Night Gobbos to keep them from looking too uniform - a whole warband of Night Goblins all in slightly different shades of blue should look awesome on the table top (for extra variation I might even throw in a few in other colour robes, maybe Red or Purple). I think I spent more time on moon icon/sign/banner/staff top than I did the rest of figure - I wanted it bright, but to still have defined shading. I achieved this with a base-coat of Iyanden Darksun, highlighted with Golden Yellow and then given a wash of the old Yellow Wash followed by a wash of Griphone Sepia and then re-highlighted it with Golden Yellow. The eye was painted Gore Red and highlighted Ruby Red and the teeth were painted Snake Bite Leather, highlighted with Bubonic Brown and then Bleach Bone and then the gaps where shaded with a mix of Delvian Mud and Badab Black
The second Goblin here is an axe armed HeroQuest Goblin I painted while I was teaching Tracey (Madam M) to paint, to show her all the basic techniques step by step. You can see Madam M's Goblin Here the only difference between the figures is that I chose blue cloth to match my Night Goblins while Madam M opted for the more traditional red (I think you'll agree she's done very well)
Next in line for the Gobbos I think I'll make some Netters, Clubbers and Prodders so they can heard Squigs into battle and after a recent Skirmish battle against Cat's Woodelves I've decided my Goblins need more archers too
