Exhibit & Tutorial: It’s crushing time! Czas coś zgnieść!

Night Goblins Shaman & Warboos Foot of Gork base
While preparing for Hussar 2017 I got an idea for a very funny base for my Night Goblins (Moonclan Grots) Shaman, Warboss and a certain headless unfortunate – Foot of Gork! Below you will also find a short tutorial for making this base and if you’re curious how I made bases for those night goblins you can find a separate tutorial here.
It’s crushing time! =)

Przygotowując się na Hussara 2017 wpadłem na pomysł zabawnej podstawki dla mojego Szamana i Duża Szef Nocnych Goblinów (Moonclan Grots) oraz pewnego bezgłowego nieszczęśnika – Stopa Gorka! Na końcu posta znajdziecie również krótki poradnik robienia tej podstawki, a jeśli chcecie wiedzieć jak zrobiłem podstawki samym  goblinom to zapraszam tutaj.
Czas coś zgnieść! =)

Tutorial / Poradnik
Paint a base dark brown and draw a foot like on the photo below. Pomaluj podstawkę ciemnym brązowym, a następnie narysuj na niej stopę, jak na zdjęciu poniżej.

Night Goblins Foot of Gork base tutorial

The effect can be very different depending on what you want your foot to look like. I used the cracle effect on the inside of the foot (after using the cracle effect I let it dry and then painted it with a thin coat of lighter brown – the cracles will appear in the direction of your brush strokes). To finish the base you only need to glue sand and grass around the foot and between toes.

Końcowy efekt może być dowolny, zaś ja wykorzystałem efekt spękania na wnętrzu stopy (po nałożeniu i wyschnięciu efektu spękania należy go pomalować cienką warstwą jaśniejszej farby – spękania pojawią się zgodnie z ruchami pędzla). By dokończyć podstawkę wystarczy przykleić wokół stopy i między palcami piasek oraz trawkę.

Hobby is Happening.. Honest!

Sorry for the radio silence. Life has been getting in the way but I’ve managed to get a few things done. First up is a Warboss on Giant Cave Squig from Forge World. This model is oozing character, he is the perfect transition between the old and new look Goblins Grots. I repainted the squig several times and in the end settled on the classic red colour scheme which I think compliments that dark robes of the moon clan perfectly.
I have also begun work on Grom the Paunch and his chariot. I am happy with how his paintjob is turning out but am having a surprisingly hard time with Niblet. For some reason I can’t seem to get him right, I have tried twice now and keep screwing it up. He’s currently sitting in a bath of paint stripper ready for another attempt… when I have the patience that is. Third times a charm right?
And last up something non-Grot related. I have begun construction on a Marienburg Landship! A great looking kit that I am assembling for my future Empire army. I have the army in boxes/FW packets and this will become my next project once the grots are done (…or at least nearing completion :p). More updates coming soon!

In Part Three of this series on giving an overview of all the grand alliances in Age of Sigmar, we take a look at Destruction! With the new General’s Handbook recently released, Games Workshop has really kept up their promise of regular updates to the rules and point cost adjustments for the units.  This is a great time to get into the game for sure! Grand Alliance Destruction Destruction armies provide you with some great opportunities for some wanton mayhem. And, in some cases, some fun that doesn’t necessarily take itself too seriously like those stuffy Order armies, or the skulls for the skull throne guys. The…continue reading
