It’s been an age since my last post, partly due to the first few hectic weeks of term and combined with a poorly 4 year old who is also going through one of those ‘stages’ (basically arguing about anything and everything).
However, I will attempt to redress the lack of miniature joy by finally posting up those long awaited Goblins!
Once again these are some stunning models from Polar Fox Miniatures, and I know I haven’t added the static grass but I just wanted to get them photographed so they feel kind of finished. Then they can join the rest of the Goblin gang – who I’m starting to think would be pretty groovy as a Swampgrave (you guessed it, Frostgrave in a swamp full of ruins, huge tree stumps and magical aquarium plants) warband so I’m going to have to get the Shaman painted up…… although I may also have a go at sculpting one.
In the picture there are a couple of fighty types and a rather fun assassin as well as the lumbering and rather cross looking Troll. They were, as always, great fun to paint and I’m a bit annoyed that I let the process drag on for so long. I painted the Troll blue because I always wanted one of the GW Stone Trolls when I was younger and also since I needed a change from green.
In other news I’ve actually been working away sporadically on the standard bearer and musician as well as the second Ogre chap – all of whom should be finished within a week if I get a few evenings in of sustained labour. This and the usual fiddling around with scenery (I’ll get some finished one day I promise) and trying not to get distracted by the urge to get totally distracted by all the sci-fi and post apocalypse stuff that my traitorous mind keeps wanting me to look at.
Pictures of more grey stuff will be following hopefully soon.
