Down, Down, Down in Goblin Town!

Doing something else:

 

160530 citadel the hobbit goblins x20

The 20 goblins from The Hobbit: Escape from Goblin Town game set. These were fun to do.

all are different from one another.

Chronopia Unliving = Frostgrave zombie.

From Ye Pile of Olde hails this excellent zombie barbarian from the defunct game Chronopia. Looks like this one was sculpted by Kev White.

The Anti Paladin

Companion to the Hellknight, the Anti Paladin:

Not really satisfied with the cloak, but then again, cloaks are not my forte.

This one was painted similarily to the Hellknight. Both are meant for the evil warband for frostgrave as swordsmen / knights. This one might also be a captain if it comes to that.

He reminds me of Mola-Ram, that heart-wrenching high priest of the Thugee clan.

I imagine these are the kinds of people that would eat deliscious eyeball soup, followed by chilled monkey brain for dessert.

Hellknight of the Order of the Nail (whatever that is)

A random mini for my first warband for Frostgrave:

160514 reaper bones 89030 Hellknight order of the nail b 160514 reaper bones 89030 Hellknight order of the nail b2

This one did not want to be photographed. None of the photos do it justice. Either too dark or too bright, the colours and gradients seem to dissappear whatever I do.

*sigh*…The need to do something abouit a lightbox increases…

At any rate, for this mini I played around with coloured washes and inks on top of very dark metal. I was going for a  Darkly Colourful Evil kind of impression…I think it turned out ok, at least IRL, apart from the sword that for some reason I simply could not draw straight lines on.

He has a companion done in a similar fashion, but who is not finished yet. Watch this space!

Medusa! She’s staring at you!

Painting the following mini reminded me of a special song from days gone by:

 

 

I had it grinding in my head the whole time while painting it. I wonder why…

160514 reaper bones 77037 medusa b

I actually picked this one to be part of my “evil” Frostgrave warband, as an archer or marksman.
