Title: Red Raiding Hoodz goblin tribe
Post by: The Black Knight on August 13, 2019, 03:52:06 PM
Hi folks!

I haven't been able to work much on my scenery lately and here's why: I have finally put the finishing touches to my Goblin army!  It's a really slow going project, as first of all I am a rather slow painter and second: it's a bloody goblin army. So. Many. Models!!!

Luckily I'm finally at a place where I can consider the army functional (around 2250 points in 8th ed terms). Me and my buds were running a little WFB campagin earlier this year and this prompted me to power through the last couple of models. There is of course no such thing as being "done" with an O&G force and I have plenty of stuff still to add, but at least I wanted to show what I have done so far:

So first up my Warlord: Agaricomycetes, a great goblin philosopher and tactician. Using my favourite old Skarsnik model. This is the only picture that's old, as I've chipped his nose while taking a new photo yesterday (sad face).

BSB. I've stripped his banner 3 times I think. Freehand is hard man!

Shamans. One stock and one kitbashed.

Big Boss - usually goes with the spears.

His trusty spear block, 50 strong.

Spinning surprise!

Wolf boyz. First to be deployed and first to panic off the table.

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48528683497_bb28991e35_b.jpg)

Closely followed by these brave lads. One day they will amount to something great, I am sure.

Scratch built chariot. I have like a ton of spiders but very few wolves ... seemed like a waste! I try to explain it that the goblins breed a different type of very fast, but venomless spider.

The squigs are meant to come from caves so deep, that they have effectively lost all pigment in their skin. Inspired by deep sea critters. I can imagine that sunlight makes them rather angry!

The fanatic delivery system.

This is got to be the silliest war machine, apart from the hot pot. Love this miniature!

More scratch built warmachines. Took ages, but saved me a couple of $. Not sure I would bother nowadays. They either do something amazing, or are a complete waste of points, no in-between!

Another NG brick. This one usually serves as my character bunker, hence the H&S combo. All converted from the BFSP goblins.

There is a total of 120 goblin infantry models in the army. And I still own 200 unpainted ones....help meee.

Latest addition to the army - a worlord/big boss on spider. I MIGHT have overdone the trophy rack a bit. He's magnetized as I hope to get him a bigger spider someday....speaking of which...

A really big spider this time. I absolutely HATED painting this thing, more of a rank-and-file man myself. It is a nice centerpiece though. No idea how would I have painted it without an airbrush, even though I suck at using it.

Big Chief Bigfoot on his howdah.

Trolls! Another unit painted this year. I dreaded tackling them, but actually turned out really fun. I couldn't work out a colour scheme for them for over 2 years. Really pushed myself with these, used the airbrush to basecoat, then glazed them with greens and blues and then layered and layered and layered.... . Need to varnish them still.

Back rank, the middle one is my favourite. Converted using green stuff and the tree trunk from the giant kit. Loves playing baseball using squigs. Or anything else really...

The army as it stands right now.


Wellp. That's that. Sorry for the amount of pictures! I hope to add something more to the army this year, but it's probably gonna be something small. Or I might paint a giant, who knows?

Cheers!
