Thanks a bunch you two! It was a very relaxing weekend. I took it easy on the hobby front the last week and a half. I was going to work on a bunch of Wood Elves but I was so worn out of painting elves that I decided to work on silly goblins instead. Here are two shamans (one GW and one from MOM Miniatures) and a sort of re-based goblin boss that I painted years ago.


The MOM Miniatures goblin is a little chunkier, and more angled, but is roughly the same size as the rest of the goblins and has an interesting 70s or 80s medieval fantasy feel. I wonder why only the left hand has nails, but that's how it was sculpted. The other two are GW from the old Battle for Skull Pass set. I didn't touch up the boss at all. He refused to be removed from the round base he is on, so I stuck it onto a square base and used my patented "Milliput the edges to make a rough small hill" method. At least it gives the guy some stature. The shaman is newly painted. I have fond memories of looking around a brick and mortar shop in my area some 15 years ago, a few years before it closed, and finding a dusty, unopened, Battle for Skull Pass set on a top shelf priced at $30. I've had the whole thing ever since. It's nice to work on them.

I also built 30 goblin spider riders. I think I'll paint those next. Comments and criticism always welcome. Enjoy the hobby.


Love those gobos! Enjoy them! And there’s so many great options out there for fun goblin minis. They’re so full of character even the rank and file are fun to paint, in manageable batches of course. Those giant mobs can suck your will to live.

Oooh gobbos! The boss looks very commanding on his little hillock! I’m looking forward to seeing all of those spider riders too

Great to see you around, theCrowe! I am both excited and not excited about painting a lot of goblins for that exact reason. Thank you as always, gobert. I have 31 spiders for you.


Various browns to fit a northern forest. At least, that's pretty much the only color of spider we have here in the northern reaches of the mid-west USA. The spider colors are purposefully simple because I want the focus to be on the goblins that will ride them and so they look like they would blend in with the deep forest, much like a real spider. These came together quick. I don't think their goblin riders will be as quick, but we'll see. I would have had these done even more quickly, but my eyes were hurting too much trying to paint. Turns out I needed glasses. I'm not old, but I'm not young anymore. Got that sorted and I can paint again.

Enjoy the hobby.

Lovely old-shool high-elves.

Have you considered filling up the gaps on the moving trays holding the circular based elves and basing them like the model's bases?

That’s a lot of spiders! Smoothly painted too. Good plan to get the focus to be on the gobbos. Hopefully the glasses help with the strained eyes

I have considered that, Zywus, and thanks for the compliment on the elves. I don't like compromise, but I think adding a grass base on the tray itself is an OK solution for the round bases even though I know it would look a lot better more closed up. I really don't want to spend a lot of time on movement trays when I don't paint/play professionally, though. Maybe one day. I'll keep lurking your hobby log as well, as those 15mm elves of yours are wonderful.

gobert - the glasses are certainly helping, but they are taking some getting used to. Thank you!

Interim between painting Orcs & Goblins, a Wood Elf wizard. Apparently I am incapable of being too far from elves. This is a Runewars "Latari" spellcaster. The miniatures are dirt cheap, even though they are out of print and are quite well done. The PVC material used to create the miniatures is kind of a curse when it comes to mold lines, but it's not too bad. They do stand a little taller than GW Wood Elves, but most of those are old and scale creep is a real thing. I'm not concerned.


Back to the gobbos now. Comments and criticism always welcome. Enjoy the hobby.

For sure (the elves are 10mm though, but I'm sure they like the compliment, everyone want to look taller right?

There are those hole-saw's that can be used to pretty easily cut suitable holes for models, and also readymade MDF trays with holes.

But as you say, that's time and money not spent on painting more troops, so it's a question of prioritizing of course.

The wood elf looks cool. I’ve not done any pvc minis, but I can imagine the softness makes mould lines a !
