The hut is from an old Warhammer starter set (featuring dwarves vs goblins) and is heavily converted to suit the need of the forest goblins! Well, some of the parts of the projects are from Night Goblins aswell, but we made a mish mash to better fit our style! Barrels from Ristul’s and forest basing kit is from Scibor. Rest of the parts are pretty much just from the Arachnarok Spider from Games Workshop, while flowers and the poison ivy are from the amazing Mini-Natur and heavily wrapped around the entire hut and ground.
I really loved painting this piece! Those archers mean business if you come too close! Still have a few more pieces to come!
We have spent the last few evenings making characters and trying the new system, which should be simular to 2nd edition, but as we never played that edition, we had to learn it from scratch!
We are now converting our heroes from our homebrew into 4th edition, which is a little harder than we thought.
Ozzy our Rogue from a scrappy background becomes a thief, our hunter Max who has a background as the son of a Lord is now a bounty hunter, while Dagna our dwarven shieldmaiden goes through some sh*@ and ends up as a Troll Slayer! Yes, they can be female in our campaign! ‘Cause, why not?
One of the requirements for her to advance her career is killing a troll. Which is perfect, since we already have Wanted poster handouts for trolls in the vicinity of Krugenheim (city in eastern Talabecland).
So now I’m working on the trolls for the encounter. Often it’s one or two trolls for such a contract, but we thought it would be really cool to have a leader for them! So today I will be working on the Troggoth Hag from Forgeworld and hopefully get her and some of her sons ready by next month.
I’ve already painted one of her sons a little while ago, so here he is in all his glory!
My husband made and painted the 75mm (3″) base while I painted the flowers and ivy on it. The blue skinny flowers are from our garden which I dried and painted in vivid colours.
Finally a couple of more pictures of the handsome troll! I really like these plastic River Trolls (or troggoths!) from Games Workshop. I had them before, but decided to sell them and make new ones. I’m also working on another troll brother which is my favourite of the ways to assemble the trolls: The guy with the fish!
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!
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:
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
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.
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!
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).
