More ungreenskinz!

Even though I had a pretty long break from the blog/plog I did paint some miniatures in this time. And mostly Orcs and Gobbos who have had a brand new Army Book wich I have of course as well as some more lovely miniatures.

When they where released I bought the book, the magic cards, a box of Savage Orcs and a Arachnarok spider. All in all it was a great release, the hardcover books looks really nice and from what I can tell, and what I'm been hearing from others it's seems like good balanced book. Which also can be competitive but not over the top like some of the older 7th ed books.

I also like the miniatures, especially the spider and the savage orcs which looks great with all the tattoos and war paint I intend to paint on my army. But before I show you some of them I want to post some pics of the other mainly gobbo stuff I've been painting.


First up is the finished unit of twenty Night goblin archers, I'm quite happy with how it turned out and I think the movement tray makes a good job showing the forest theme. Next up is a Night goblin big boss and a shaman from the Skullpass box. There's also a picture of the first two spider riders, where I didn't use Army Painter's Dark Quickshade but instead just a coat or two of Devlan Mud. The result is pretty much the same and really an alternative for those who don't like dip and quickshade. Tell me want you think.


  1. hey, what red do you use to paint the goblin archer hoods? thanks!

  2. Hi, i used a mix like 50/50 of Red gore and Mechrite Red, then the goblins where dipped in Quickshade Dark tone (devlan mud works aswell) and then highlighted with the same mix, and on the boss and shaman a second highlight with a little blood red in the mix on the highest edges.

    Hope it helps and feel free to ask more questions.

  3. how do you do the highlighting? just drybrushing raised parts?

  4. No, I actually don't drybrush that much anymore. I just stroke the brush on the raised areas and the edges until i get the effect want. I just do this once on the normal night goblins. I don't recomend drybrushing on a model that is dipped btw, you won't get the same result as an undipped model.
