Here they are:
To tell the truth, I was not very happy with the drummer. Remember, I wanted to paint a very pale skin for this underground dweller, but there was a lack of contrast in the result - the skin looked the same everywhere - too plain, too clean.
So for the next Goblins, I decided to add a layer of watery white, with only a little bit of red - and I painted that layer on the drummer too. I also used yellow and blue washes in some places on the skin to simulate skin disorders. And last but not least, I painted some dirt on their legs, arms and bellies.
Some close-ups to see the result:
|I think that this one might represent a halfling, with another color scheme|
These minis were an excuse to paint some rusty weapons - once again, I wanted to go a bit further than usual, and added some orange highlights to the rusty parts.
Maybe you would be interested in a size comparison with other minis ?
First picture: Goblins and Orcs, same manufacturer (Dark Alliance):
They are approximately the same size - the Goblins look much uglier, is it the figures or the painting? :D
Second picture: Goblins from two different manufacturers (Dark Alliance and Caesar):
The Caesar are much smaller. In my eye, they really look like Imps rather than Goblins. And the color scheme I chose in not that interesting, I should find another.
As a conclusion, I would like to list what I've learnt with these minis:
- a very pale skin with a lot of white is possible, but you need contrast and splatters of color in some places - it is a bit boring without
- the rust can be very orange
- I like monsters
That's all folks!
