Heroquest – Goblins

The Goblins are all done, they took me a bit longer than expected because I painted all the Twisting Catacombs doors I have too.

I’m not entirely sure I’m happy with the skin as prefer more natural tones than bright green but overall I’m pleased. I will have to think whether I want the Orcs to be the same or darker though.

I’ll probably have a go with another hero now to break up the monotony, painting guide for the Goblins down below.

Painting Guide

From a Black undercoat the Goblin skin was base coated with Army Painter Army Green then washed with Vallejo Umber Wash, then a Green Wash and then Umber Wash once again. The skin was then layered with Army Green again. The eyes are Gold Yellow then shaded with a mixture of Red and Yellow Ink, then a Black pupil was added.

The clothes, shoes and weapon grip are all painted the same with a base coat of Earth followed by an Umber Wash, then layered with Earth and then finally with a mix of Earth and Bonewhite. The Belt is Beasty Brown then 2 coats of Umber Wash and a highlight of Beasty Brown.

The Goblins weapons and belt buckle are base coated with Gunmetal then given an Umber and Black mix Wash, highlighted with Gunmetal and then given an Umber and Black Wash again. The shaft on the axe is a base coat of Heavy Sienna, an Umber Wash and then a light dry brush of Heavy Sienna mixed with Gold Yellow.

I varnished the whole model with Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish.
