Goblin battle carts and dinoriders II

14 September, 2014

I’ve finished the battle carts and dinoriders. I’ve also flocked four elements of Goblin hordes, so I’m whittling away at the stuff I’ve started to paint but not finished. I’ve also got a system established for keeping what I’m working on in boxes that I can access easily for short sessions. Until I have the space to give to a painting table this is a good solution.

Here are the goblin hordes, not too significant, except that they represent the last of the elements needing to be rebased. Whew! An innovation I discovered while doing this is that I can use artist’s soft gel to bulk up the bases, and it works fairly well. It’s a lot less fuss than the Selleys No More Gaps that I’d been using. In the past I’d mixed the soft gel with paint and it’d not done much.

The figures are from the Chariot range.

The dinoriders seem to have a darker shade of skin. Did I use Snot Green? Or is it just less dilute than I used last time? I may add shields to them.

The goblins now have hard-charging cavalry, or HoTT Kn.

I may pick out the rivets on their helmets if I come back to them.

The battle carts are mainly to allow me to field ‘Classical Goblins’ in DBA, or Classical Indians with Goblins. I guess they could be classed as Kn in HoTT too.

I enjoyed putting these together, especially as I felt the figures that it came with didn’t look too good.

Now that these models are ready to use, I want to get some more Hd ready for the goblins; they’re a little underpowered in that department — you can’t call them goblins without masses of hordes!

Last week I put through an order for East Riding Miniatures dwarves. I’m looking forward to seeing them; fingers crossed that they mix in with my Chariot ones. Some of the Chariot ones have no armour; they look like something out of Snow White; they couldn’t even be used for Berserkers!

Next up may be the first HoTT stronghold, the goblin one.

    Nice work. Do you have enough mounted goblins to field an all-riders army? That would be another fun one… no pressure!
