Hi everyone, I've managed to slap a little paint on some figures this week, and made a little progress on the Mega mini's goblins that I purchased a while back after I heard they were closing down their shop. I would link to them but it looks like Mega mini's has taken them down and sold the molds onto Midlam miniatures:
http://www.midlamminiatures.co.uk/news/news-30.html so hopefully they should appear for sale very soon.
Here they all are based up and their flesh base coated along with a Mega mini's Wretch that looks like is still available from Mega miniatures.
So far I've only finished one of the group, mainly as a tester for the rest of the group:
I've tried to go for a more 'earthy' yellowy green on the flesh hopefully to distinguish them from the orcs that I painted many moons ago. The 'string' on the bow is a tiny piece of wire that drove me insane trying to wind around the bow. The red nose on the ears, nose, knees and elbows is just a mix of watered down pink paint and red glaze.
That's it on the painted front for now, I'll end this update with a shout out to my newest follower Don Hans and his amazing Realm of Citadel blog (http://realmofcitadel.blogspot.se/)
Check out his amazing old school mini's and his equally amazing paint jobs very 'Blanche-esque', and the bases are something I might try and steal for my chaos mini's, look at them, how amazing is the zebra Minotaur! GO now and have a look at his other awesome mini's GO and don't come back until your peepers are fat with beautiful eye-candy!
