boyfights' 15mm chaos dwarfs (hobgoblins have arrived) [07-17-2018]boyfights 06-25-2018

I'm crossposting these from my frostgrave thread on Admiral's suggestion; painted tjublings!

Big thanks to tjub and Admiral for making and selling these, they're beautiful sculpts and a joy to paint. I'm just recently getting back into gaming after a very long time off and was never much of a painter to begin with, basically limited to black undercoat + drybrushing on the rare occasion that I could even be bothered, so I'm essentially teaching myself to paint. These guys are my fifth batch since starting shortly after Easter Happy

   
   
   

More to come soon!

Great paint jobs on these little guys! They look like a lot of fun.

Yay, looks great!
Reminds me of smaller versions of Carcearions. Always a joy to see these little Dawi Zharr with paint on.
If you are using them for Frostgrave the next release should be interesting as well, a few more characters. Happy

Thanks to both of you! I'm really excited about your new sculpts tjub, I expect to work most of your stuff into special scenarios or terrain pieces or whatever other excuse I can give myself to buy them Happy I expect that I'll still be a couple months getting off the ground but once I have a board and another warband or three prepared the plan is to blog a solo campaign.

I managed to get a base coat on most of my second 12 tjublings - skull command, hat command, four blunderbusses and the flamethrower team - yesterday before dropping a stand and having to re-glue them. So far there has been one accident per batch (digging my night goblins out from under the oven with a wooden spoon was fun, big thanks to vallejo varnish though, only two touchups!) so I'm hoping it'll be smooth sailing from here Big Grin

I don't find the actual painting itself so difficult, although I do take my time and go pretty slowly; I think it took me around 10 hours total to get through these guys. I'd never really painted red before, and was playing with more inks than just black for the first time, so they took a little extra time Happy

Managed to finish up my basecoats last night in between dropping and having to re-glue models to their stands twice, I seem to have cursed myself. I think I need to suck it up and buy some proper popsicle sticks for bases instead of being stubborn and using the mini-sticks that I ordered by accident Tongue Hopefully better luck tonight!

RE: boyfights' 15mm chaos dwarfs [06-25-2018]boyfights Yesterday

My splintered light order came in yesterday! I ordered a pack of 20mm goblins to use as hobgoblins; I think they look a little more like the tribal hobgoblins, but they're about the best fit I've been able to find and I'll be happy to use them as tribal hobgoblins once tjub blesses us with his! I didn't get a chance to ink them for a better shot, but here is how they compare to the tjublings scale-wise (keeping in mind the tjublings are on 1mm thick washers, basing has begun!):



I think they've got a cool old-school GW feel, the mohawk guy in particular Happy Better shots of the minis are here: http://www.splinteredlightminis.com/goblins.html

Just realized I never posted the picture of my second batch of tjublings here as well:





Shots with bases to come soon, hopefully!
