BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Hammertime!

In my last article on the Maulers I introduced Bonkh and Gabru. Today's introduction is a bit shorter, but it's a short character as well, so it seemed alright. I rummaged in my bitsbox for suitable models for Blood Bowl fans and found an old crew member of the doom diver catapult. I never had […]

Old Grenadier Goblin Giant

This is an old kit one of my customers had us do. It is from Grenadier Miniatures from way back in the day. An all metal kit, it weighs in at about 4 pounds of lead just for the giant.I had to assemble the giant and the platform separately, painting them, then finish the assembly. The goblins were also left off until the end then painted and attached.Fit was okay, probably helped with my use of JB weld for an adhesive/ filler. The platform didn't line up quite right, so I added some spacers to make it a bit more level.There were several bits and goblins missing from the kit so I added some more modern bits from GW's goblins. This helps tie the model in with the customer's newer stuff.The base is a piece of MDF, Grit and texture were added, along with some cast stones. Everything was sealed, then painted. Finally I added flock, static grasses, and clumps.

Silver Tower Grot Scuttlings of Tzeentch

It’s Age of Sigmar time!  Here’s a nine-strong cluster of Grot Scuttlings from the modern (gasp!) Warhammer Quest Silver Tower game. There’s only eight in the box, but I painted a bonus one as PRAISE BE TO TZEENTCH. Spider-Grots, Spider-Grots, manufactured in Notts. Mashing together Night Goblins with sp-sp-spiders puzzles me – Forest Goblins were the spider-flavoured Goblins from Warhammer, so it’s confusing the themes.  Like mashing up High Elves with leafs.  Or Khorne Berserkers with sonic sex-weaponry.  It seems Gee-Dub haven’t continued the arachno-trend with the subsequent Night Goblin (or “Moonclan Grot” as they’re now called) releases, and these spider-hybrids (“sp-ybrids”?) are confined to Tzeentch’s Silver Tower.  Moonclan have found their feet, and it’s not eight-a-grot. Spin a web any size, catch Orruks just like flies. To emphasise the Tzeentchian nature of these Scuttlings I avoided the classic Night Goblin black-robes-gr

Moria Goblin Warband Speed Painting

Here is what I have completed for my Moria Warband, a motley crew if ever there was one. It's small and will probably grow fast but as the models are cheap and readily available I don't mind. I have to still get some captain and lieutenant models for my Battle Company but I am confident enough that I can convert some from what I have. Adding a cloak and some helmets can't be that hard, right...? I did the bases on these to fit in with my standard terrain and I think it works quite well with the models, accentuating them without drawing the eye overly. Now I think next up will be a Balrog...Here is a WIP shot of the Goblins so you can see just how easy they are to speed paint. I based them up beforehand and then just sprayed them all white. As I warned before, the models have some delicate details on the fact and so you should be careful when it comes to actually spraying them. I then washed the entire model with Agrax Earthshade to define the detail, my old eyes are failing somewhat so every little helps.In t

Moria Cave Troll

No Moria force would be complete without a Cave Troll right? Well to that end I picked up one from eBay. I should say rescued one from eBay really as it was in quite a state when I got it. After some quite rehabilitation in Biostrip and a complete disassembly and clean up I managed to get him back to a basic standard. There are a few gaps on the model that I didn't fill but the mould lines are all removed and was the thick layer of paint. In keeping with the speed painted goblins I did this guy very quickly. I have been practising stippling a lot recently and though that this model would be another good way to practice. In the end I really don't know where I am going wrong with the technique. In certain places with certain colours it looks great but in other places it looks terrible. The grey skin here came out well, I'd have liked a little more contrast but its a good solid example of the technique. The lighter skin however just didn't get any contrast over some much darker layers. I'll still continue with t

Speed Painting: Moria Goblins

This is possibly the fastest that I have ever painted models and well it definitely looks that way. However these are going to be fielded enmasse and as such the individual details aren't all that important. I started with a solid white spray primer, too solid in places. These models have rather fine details so its best to go gently with the spray. Over this I washed a few different colours and well they are done. The only real painting I did was on the black where I wanted to achieve a solid coat. The green is Athonian Camoshade followed by Waywatcher Green, both GW paints. The red was Hull Red from Vajello that has been diluted a lot. The browns were various shades, too numerous to name. Just go with any paint that has been diluted or even just a straight up wash from Agrax Earthshade by GW.
