Otherworld Goblins Part 1 and Dad-Daughter project update.

I've finally gotten around to finishing off some goblins for my Fantasy gaming I think I bit off more than I could chew trying to do them all at once and so have split it in half. I am gong to do a few other figures from other ranges before painting the second half.

What you can see here is Goblin Warriors 2 pack and Half of the Goblins command pack (Bodyguard and Sub Chief or Champion as I like to think of him probably Oldhammer thinking ...) I have the Chieftain and Shaman left to do and a the goblin missile troops pack (2 bow and 2 slings). Once these 12 are finished I hope to reward myself with the other two goblin warrior packs bringing the total of goblins upto 20.

They are all cracking sculpts









I've tried a different method with the below mainly zooming in and then cropping using the s/w on my phone. Undecided still.









You'll notice the Dad- daughter project tag has been added and is in the title again. My Daughter Carmen is painting her other Young Fire elementalist (yay) We plan to do some Fantasy gaming together using some of my Otherworld adventurers as a sort of ad hoc town militia to back up the two mages. I am looking at various rulesets at the moment for it. With possibly using Frostgrave as the D20 takes out some of the predictability it seems.



WIP but we hope to finish her soon.


The First Fire Elementalist (called Elsa :P)

Anyway hope your all enjoying the lovely weather were having in the UK at the moment and talking of which this will be my last past for a couple of weeks whilst we go away on our Jollies to the seaside for a bit of R&R and family time.

  9. Excellent work from you both. :)

    I will be watching the dad and daughter project unfold. :)

    I think splitting down to smaller groups sometimes is the best way to avoid not finishing any of them. :)

    1. Thanks dude. Yeah its certainly been a lot easier on the mind to do it in smaller chunks.

  10. Fantastic work!

    I find the human skin on the Goblins very refreshing as opposed to the "standard" green!

    1. Thanks dude I always preferred the skin colours described in the LOTR books. Also this skin tone is more D&D

  11. Great work as usual mate. I'm adopting a similar thing with my painting now, breaking projects up a little so I don't get that bogged down feeling.

    Good to see the daddy/daughter wargaming time continuing, I've had my youngest painting alongside me the last week and we've been getting a battle box game of Hordes in almost daily lately :).

  13. lots of Goblin goodness there Simon, and splendidly painted to boot!! You've certainly made them a tempting range. But there again everything you post these days seems to be done to distract me from my current projects ;-)

  14. Loving the father-daughter stuff. Always fantastic to hear that ones child loves art. The way those goblins are sculpted make them look like Ferrengi to me. :) Great choice on the orange-like skin tones which contrast nicely with the green clothes.

  15. My Goblins get the D&D skin treatment as well - a little more brown though. Regardless, these look fab. Big fan of these sculpts - think they'd mix in just fine with my old 1980's TSR figs.

    1. Thanks Dai! I am not keen on greenskins apart from on Orcs much prefer my Goblins this colour. I may do a few darker ones to mix in. Was batch painting these so that why they all share a similar palette.
