Goblins just want to be loved!

These Goblins are part of the same Heroquest commission as the Chaos Warriors from last time. These evil critters were a real nightmare to photograph. The things are so darn small! The robes were very different from the detail of the Chaos Warriors I showed you last time, but were relatively quick to complete.

I tried my hand at some wood effect on the shields but most of the work was concentrated around the skin. A number of layers were painstakingly concentrated here, for me, it's the most important feature of the goblin model... yes, more so than even the robes! To help add character, and maybe make you feel sorry for the little dudes, some red was added to their knuckles... and noses of some!

As a final touch some brown and grey was brushed on the feet and the bottom of the robes to give the impression of dust and dirt.
