These Netters and Clubbers were completed very recently. They’d been sitting on my painting desk what must have been close to a year (so not long, relatively), and were started shortly after the initial pair were completed in July 2015. I recall that I was looking on eBay for some “skull” style netters before finding some in amongst my unpainted Orcs and Goblins. Luckily I hadn’t found any for the right price, so I saved myself a little bit of cash there.
While I enjoy looking at other people’s orcs and goblins painted in more muted tones, and shades of olive and ochre, my own Citadel goblinoids are probably always going to be painted with the bright, unrealistic skin tones that GW has used since the late 1980’s through to today – and I make no apologies for that. These models date from about 1991, and as with the Slayers I’ve been painting recently, I’m happy for them to be painted as an echo of the White Dwarf magazines of the time.
The group shot of the goblins so far – Naturally after finishing them, I’ve just found a bunch more of these guys – 2 more netters and three more clubbers.
That will give me 12 of them in total once they’re painted – enough to fill a regiment tray. I’ll just need to work out what they can actually be used as in a KoW army…
