The Gang's All Here


Turquoise Goblins
(Camo green base, Drakenhof Nightshade shading, Skink Blue highlights)

Blue Goblins
(Altdorf Blue base, shade and highlight as above)

The little albino guy on the right is another character, a goblin captain,
so he got his own personal colour. The fluff states that small ones are more vicious.
Naturally, I missed a trick by not painting it orange.
This particular blue one, by the way, is rapping.
Taste the Rainbow of Fruit Goblins
Left to Right: Wild Spearmint, Arctic Raspberry, Sour Apple, Crazy Lime,
Lemon Blast, Fruits of the Forest, Festive Cranberry and Watermelon Explosion.

Three's Company

Accelerating towards the end of the box of Hobbitoids, I have now got all the dwarves done.




Mural's Avengers

Painting the nursery walls. A little more two-dimensional than miniatures, but this is why I haven't posted any army progress for the last month or so...

Spider-Man mural
Webslinging his way across the changing mat.

Don't Fear the Reaper

Another quicky, this. From time to time, I visit the Reaper Miniatures page to check out new releases and pretend to toy with the idea of buying new models. I hadn't for a while, but when I did, boy was I surprised.

They're currently going through what seems to be the entire catalogue of models and doing something GW should take note of - turning all their old metal stock into cheap resin casts. I can't speak for the quality of the resin, but looking at pictures of stuff I own copies of, it looks pretty impressive. And it's about a third of the price.

Anyone interested in giants, monsters or dragons should definitely look at the latest stuff, it's extremely affordable! But there's pretty much something for everyone, from cheap tomb guard fillers to space age monkeys with chaingun hands.

A random demon for $13

A red dragon, originally about thirty dollars, now 16
I bought ol' octopus head here for £16, iirc.
Now $6. Dammit.

The Yolk's on You

What? Nobody has posted a picture of a goblin here in over two weeks? This cannot stand! Lemon goblins! Attack!

A refreshing citrus zing.

 As promised, I am slowly tinting a full spectrum of goblins, with this rather spurious eggy look as the latest. I'm also beginning to run out of goblins. This is good news for everybody.

Quite rightly, they call him Psycho Yellow.
