Night Goblins and Squig Gobba!

Squig Gobba

Got my hands on a squig gobba and couldn't pass it up.  So I have hand made several mushrooms and started off with a raised cork base.  The gobba has a split skin tone and 2-3 layers of highlights with 3 layers of washes.
Another one of my summer projects and a few more to throw in.  Picked up a Colossal Squig and another pair of Mangler Squigs - Can't wait to put together and paint but first comes a commission display board i'll post in a few weeks.

The spit is actually covered and layered with the GW specialty ooze paint in several layers.  Looks good enough to be a snotty spit to me.

Started and finished another 80+ BFSP night goblins bringing my horde numbers above 250+

Up close they each have raised bases and 2 layers of paint plus 1 highlight

Summer Project: War Mammoth, Slaughterbrute, and Lamassu

                                   Summer Monsters of 2014

A whole lot of work has gone into the following monsters.  The usual layering, black primer, dark colors, some classic models, big conversions, elaborate bases, and another mcfarlene miniature! Enjoy.



Old fashion Lamassu Side view, purple as a skin tone was spur of the moment and came out fine!

A lot of Green stuffing for the fur had to be used in order to fill gaps on those wings and neck.

A big boy added to the collection, my War Mumak War Mammoth! 

he is on a 4x6 base!

The base is littered with shields, heads, and blood splatters.  Lots of washes and GW specialty Paint used.

Base done and all highlights added in

Missing a horn but that's in the box, this guy is ready to kill!

Leaning over the base I used lots of specialty paints and washes all over this.
