Crooked Dice Goblins

 Work is steadily progressing with my Goblin Horde. I've managed to get the bulk of the warriors done during this month. I've started the two archers, chieftain and sub chief from Otherworld. The Goblin King is also underway having got his throne finished. Now beginning work on the King himself!

With the warriors I kept a similar colour scheme to my first batch but used more green and red. Mixing it all up so they appear like a rabble but with unifying colours. I used less browns and creams on this batch. Mixing them in with the ones I did previously I think they fit in quite well.







The Kings Throne. Such a gorgeous sculpt I had to paint them separately as there are just so many nice details on the the throne itself. I decided to paint the skulls as bone rather than wood as I think it gives a nicer contrast than all just being wood.

  4. Super work on the goblins, Simon, especially the eyes and cloaks. They remind me of the old school Citadel goblins I used to own as a kid.

    1. Thanks Joe. I much prefer them this way if I am honest. I like the skin tones they went with for the Orcs/Goblins in the LOTR movies.
