Here's the first 10 who will be members of the "Bone Mob":
They're not Golden Gobbo standard but I'm pretty pleased with them. As usual I'd class them as an acceptable gaming standard and if that's the case I'll defo take that!
Oddly you can see their eyes better in a group shot. I guess that means I've achieved my goal of creating the overall impact not an individual brilliance.
These guys will eventually be a unit from Grom's own tribe - the Broken Axe.The yellow and red colour scheme was inspired by the 4th Edition box cover and I think these are the colours I'm going to make the colours of the Broken Axe.
The next lot are Iron Claw who will be the "Iron Mob" for the purposes of the scenario.
I have to confess, to begin with I wasn't that taken with these minis but after painting them I've completely fallen in love with them. The quirky oddness of the Bob Olley sculpts holds so much character and individuality that they've probably become my favourite Goblin sculpts. They remind me very much of the sort of Goblin look of Jim Henson's Labyrinth. There are a lot more photo's of these ones because they're so close to my heart now.
For these guys I've chosen an orange and blue colour palette for the clothing. This was most inspired by the Goblins wearing the hoods that made me think of the Goblins in the 80's Dungeons and Dragons cartoon. No, not the pig faced Orcs but the hooded Goblins that appeared once in a blue moon. They had random colours schemes so I hope I've paid my homage to them sufficiently.
One of the Goblins of the is a standard bearer (in need of a banner) who won't be used in the scenario but I'm hoping to get 8 more painted up than I need that will include command groups and allow me to field 2 units of 20.
Anyhow, that's the the first batch down. Time to crack on with the rest................................
