Forest Goblin Village – Part One: The Egg Snatcher

So I finally got around to take some pictures of our exciting Forest Goblin Village!

A very time consuming but overwhelmingly fun adventure! I painted all the pieces, which my husband built out of a ton of boardgame boards (as bases) and bits from our many collections. We bought an extra arachnarok spider and a citadel forest just for bits!

First off! The infamous egg-snatcher goblin. This little guy had the nasty job to steal fresh eggs from the many spiders sorrounding the village.
They use the webs for building huts, the eggs for food and for breeding spiders, which they use in combat, and they use the venom to coat their weapons.
He is one of the many goblins who risk their lives every day interacting with venomous spiders. Casualties are plenty, but so are fresh recruits! There is always another goblin ready to prove his worth!

Egg Snatcher

I painted the goblin with tattoos and feathers in shiny colours. A sharp contrast to the red and orange colours of the spiders. Lots of tufts from MiniNatur and Gamers Grass were used along with Spider scenery from Ristul’s Market, which sadly closed down. Goblin and loose spiders are from the Arachnarok Spider kit from Games Workshop.

Here are some additional pictures of the diorama piece:

Stay tuned for more pieces!

Night Goblin Commander on Giant Squig

After a few days off in total relaxation (On the couch playing Divinity: Original Sin with my husband) I thought it was time to put up a post before returning to work!

Here is the latest addition to my Night Goblins, the champion of the Night Goblin Command group from Forgeworld.

I painted the Squig as having rusty armor with a few pretty additions made by the goblin in command! I also freehanded details on the goblin and highlighted his black robes with dark blue colours. A pretty handsome lad :-)

Oh and I decided not to paint his eyes completely red and just chose a red iris to give him more character.

I will need to find a substitute arm for the bannerman, since I used the banner for my goblin tree-city terrain, which I have been working on for quite a while now :-P

Happy New Year!

Stone Troll – Golden Jewelry Style!

I really love those old metal Stone Trolls from Games Workshop. They bring so much character and perfectly resembles the stupid trolls from the fantasy battle edition. They were initially part of my husband’s Christmas presents last year, and he plans to make a diorama at some point.

Bling Bling Troll

They are really a joy to paint. My husband requested the vivid blue colours he remembers from when he was a kid and had just started the hobby.

This is the first one I have painted so far and I thought it would be fun to paint the trolls as individual characters. This one is very proud of his stolen jewelry and he constantly shows them off to his inferior troll buddies!

He was mounted on a rocky base and I painted the weapon as a stone aswell, ’cause you know, he’s a Stone troll!

Avatars of War: Orc Shaman

Yet another post today, I’m on fire! I painted the Avatars of War miniature “Orc Shaman”  for my husband’s Orc Warband to be used in Mordheim. He’s been working on converting a bunch of orcs to appear to be raiding the town (Empire hats, bunch of loot on them etc.) – This one is one of the few “Normal” orcs in the warband.

I’ll put up some more pictures soon of his warband – And my own warband as well (The Possessed).
