Scent of a Gamer

Moria goblins

I have painted 9 Moria goblins, which are also the last nine Moria goblins I will paint!

The ruined tower has put in great service over the years as a scenic base for my painting efforts, but age and use are starting to tell. There’s lots of areas where the original paint has rubbed off or worn thin. It holds up better than most terrain, but nothing lasts forever.

For the goblins themselves I deliberately chose a limited set of colours, metal armour, leather clothing, green skin, grey hair, yellow eyes. As always the Gamers Grass neon tufts provide a bright spot.

    Like them! Although you can see the paint rubbed of the tower it just adds to the ruined look. I wouldn’t have noticed if you had not pointed it out.

      I always notice the main bit of wear on the tower since it comes direct from my thumb when picking it up!

    I think the goblins look really nice, and congrats for finishing all of them (for now)!

    I got to say though, I’m not sure about the neon tufts.. They draw all the attention from the actual models, which might make the gobbos more sneaky, but I think it’s not ideal otherwise. Just my $0.02, of course!

      I started using them to brighten up what were some fairly dull bases – but you’re right I should use less of a tuft on small goblins that are likely to get overwhelmed by the colour.

    I gotta snap you a pic of my tower one of these days.. never could stand that skull in the middle, so I converted mine to have a ruined stairwell instead. And covered everything with snow.

    Nice goblins Dave! 🙂 You do realise that tower has maybe been a small bit of normality for some of us over the past couple of weird years don’t you? 😉
