Monday Miniatures:Goblins (Part 2)
Last week we started working on a big batch of goblins. After all, goblins do travel in packs (at least according to the random encounter table.) This week, we see how the painters made out; it looks like nine of them were completed 100%!
This week, the amount of interesting Kickstarters I found matched the amount of models I painted, which is to say, zero. But hey, on the brightside, at least there were no bugs in my hotel room, so that’s working out well.
Magnus did a great job cranking outt the green skins this week. My favorite detail has to be the leather. The color variation is excellent, and the shading makes it look oily and gross, which is pretty much perfect if you are a dungeon dwelling goblin.
Arjen only painted the one on the left this go around. If you look closely you can see how the palete changes from the ones he had painted previously.
After Dirk’s fun filled vacation to scotland was complete, he finished up a whole bunch of goblin soldiers to go with the task master painted earlier this year. He used the same color scheme, but with slightly fewer steps to get so many done in a reasonable period of time. This is a trick from the realm of wargaming: paint the most eye catching models as much as possible, and slack off a bit on the ones you are painting 20 of. I think they look great, especially the OSL highlights on the heads of the torch bearers.
