Hey guys, no time no see!  Sorry for the lack of activity, been too busy.  But I’ve tried to keep on painting whenever possible. 

And I also went and bought myself a light box to better show off the finished results:



I’m working away on some squigs, some marine bikers and that dreadnaught.  Will post asap!  :D

Nice! Lotsa trickster traps and shrooms kabooms! And you have a lot of patience.  Looking great.

They look great Calamity, I do like how there is a lot of model variation compared to the WHF versions, it fits the goblin feel waaay better :)

Great looking Grots, and the bases are top notch too!

Thanks everyone, your compliments mean everything to me.  ;D

Still working away on the gobbos and the marines, but there’s a third army of mine who have been sorely neglected and I’m aiming to fix that.  Here come the overlords!



I finally painted and attached the volley gun and sky hook, which have been sitting undone for, wow, nearly 5 years now!  And I painted the rims of the bases too. 

And I’m glad I did because truth be told, until now I was never 100% sure about this paint scheme.  I was worried it didn’t have enough contrast and was just a mess, but fixing the bases (and getting them in the lightbox) has really made them pop and I finally feel comfortable with them. 

I hope to maybe finish a ship soon lol.  I have one started but going forward I’m thinking of using contrast paints.  Anything to help speed it up, as it’s a complicated and time consuming scheme lol.

Know what you mean about the world, lol. Those grots look great. Did you mix some blue hues into their skin, or is it just the lighting?

Lol yes.  And thanks!  I didn’t mix any blue hues no, that’s just the light.  Strange, this light box is usually ok lol.

Looking great, Calam! I really like how you did the boulders and robes  :).

Thanks!  I’m quite proud of them too lol

Thanks Dread!

Also here’s the Sneaky Snufflers I promised you all:



I’m out of astrogranite atm so the bases will have to wait lol
