I guess I probably have to go through all of my old Night Goblin model popsts and add the Gloomspite Gitz tag. Well, I will at some point, but not today. I also see I need to free a bunch of those posts from those dickholes at Photobucket, so I guess I’ll do both tasks at once.
Flames have been a common motif on models I’ve painted recently, and that’s going to continue for some time – especially as I contonue compleitng models that have been started at various times over the last two or three decades. On this model I went with yellow flames on red cloth, echoing what I did a few months ago with the “Gift Goblin”. I figured that it works for a Shaman, who can do what they want much more than the average grot, and also because I liked how it looked on the other model. Not every Shaman will have this sort of thing, but on some it works nicely to maek them out. I guess I could do the same with purples and a few other colours instead of red and it’ll also look nice.
Anyway, this model took me ages (years) to get through and once again, thanks again to the Tray, it’s done! Yay!
A quickie today. A month or so ago, I showed off Berkeley, Zombie Survivor which I painted as part of a “pick two”, where I asked Marouda to choose two models off my desk that I’d get painted. Berkeley, obviously was the first, and Gobbla, shown above and below, was the second of them. Gobbla here has actually been completed for a couple of weeks now, but there was a delay with taking the photos, and now an even longer delay in writing this post and getting him up on the blog.
This is the first version of Gobbla, and I do need to find and then complete the accompanying version of Skarsnik to have the infamous duo done, finally. I just had a 20-minute look for Skarsnik, and while I found a bunch of models that I’d like to complete for Neglected Orctober next month, there’s no sign of the Infamous Goblin Shaman himself…
Paint-wise, he’s come up a bit shiner in these photograps than he is in hand, but hin skin does have a satin finish. Hopefully he looks a bit better when I show him again side by side with Skarsnik (eventually). There’s a fair bit of Contrast paint in him as well, though used in diluted form (using the medium) for some nice, densely-coloured but still opaque washes.
