The War of the Dwarves and the Orcs |16 Dec|Goblins painted!

New project!
To be used in a series of battle reports (and hopefully many battles afterwards as well!).

All in various stages of WIPness at the moment.

Azog
Repaint of Durburz conversion, base needs finishing.

Image

Image

Image

Grash
Converted metal 'armoured Moria Goblin'. Sculpted him a face and cloak, some more GS work will be added later on.

Image

Image

Bolg II
Nothing fancy, just needed something to use as a Goblin captain, hence the snowy base and blue clothing.

Image

Image

Goblin Prowlers
Painting WIP, sculpted cloaks needs some smoothing out but got paint to be used in a game.

Image

Image

Image


And of course, some Dwarves! Quick try-out of the colours. Some areas not yet painted.

Image

Will either go with this 'stony' effect on the shields or paint it bronzish, not sure yet.

The Goblin Prowlers are most impressive, the second one is my favorite. He got some good backstabbing action going on, without doubt!

Some very nice work here. The Durburz model looks quite a lot more dynamic with the sword in the air. I also very much like your 'Grash' model. The cloak really adds something to the model.

They look really nice, although the stone effect on the shield isn't to my taste (but done very well), how did you paint the Moria Goblins armour? I'd quite like to try it out on my Goblins when I get round to them.

Thanks for the comments, finally an update!

First a warrior converted to have a banner. Bit of an experiment, not entirely pleased with the result but with some experience I think it could become a reasonably easy and useful way to make banners.

Image

Image

Then a captain, which I like quite a bit more. With those warband rules one needs a lot of heroes, so converting them (usually adding cloaks and giving a heroic pose) is quite useful. Really start to like working with green stuff!
(Note: stone will be expanded over time, a great way to use excess green stuff! [I always mix too much])

Image

Image

Hopefully get to paint one or more warriors next weekend, to get the colours right and ready to paint the army!

@Chris Guard of Mardat: I'm not sold on the stone effect either, I think the same technique with bronze would work better (also adds another colour to the army, gives me the opportunity to use bronze on Khazad/Iron Guard and heroes).
Goblin armour was way too easy. Bestial Brown (or whatever the new fancy name is) basecoat, rough stippling/drybrush (i.e. stabbing the model with an old brush) of boltgun metal (with a bit of black mixed in) and then a final drybrush with boltgun. Some lighter colour on very sharp edges as swords. That's it! Recommended to do the armour before other surfaces, as you can imagine it's quite a messy technique.

Looking good, I love some of those poses, quite dynamic!

Thanks :D I may have to use this technique when I get back round to my Goblins. Really like the pose on the Captain too, I may copy it. (I just wish Captains could have bows :( ). Will you be converting any hornblowers/shieldbearers?

Good work so far, keep at it

Looking great, as always! Love the pose of the Captain especially. Very similar to mine, but yours is better. ;)
Can't wait to see them painted on the opposite side of the board!
