So I've started a fantasy army and decided to go with Night gobbos but instead of boring black cloaks have gone with many different colours.

The units shall appear shortly.
Thanks in advance, Angels of fire.

After a long time I have managed to do 2 things
1) Paint some of my goblins.
2) Take some pictures of them. :yahoo::chuffed:

Half of my regiment (The completed ones)
[

My only painted black orc.

My shaman.

A close up of one of the gobbos.

A squig!
The night goblins with red cloaks were given a coat of Devlan mud (the new wash) which really makes them pop.
Enjoy, Angels of fire.

i'm impressed obviously not 'eavy metal standard but who is! you've made a very consistant paint scheme as i imagine keeping green the same shade over the size of an army is quite difficult, thats why i have black templars can't really go wrong with black

great job keep the pictures coming

Nice work, cool to see the Gobbo's in something other than black. That said however, stick with green for the Orcs. Any other colour just doesn't look right on them.

Well after a long delay I have managed to paint an archer unit. Enjoy.

The boss.

First shot of the whole unit.

Second shot of the whole unit.

First shot of terrain.

Second shot of terrain.

Third shot of terrain.

Fourth shot of terrain.

Any thoughts on what to do with the card, I was thinking a sort of Orc/goblin altar to Gork (or possibly Mork) but am unsure of costs and so on.
Enjoy, Angels of fire.

Right I've started to paint my second spearman unit and as I have plenty of time over the six weeks holiday these are going to be of a better standard than my previous works.

My tester piece.

Here he is again.

From the back.
Would still like to hear about the terrain. Enjoy, Angels of fire.

I love your cloaks and banners, great job so far. The only thing that I would suggest would be to work on the smaller details like the ropes and pendents the decorate your archers and gobbos, just something small like changing them to a different color so it separates them. Keep up the good work.

I'm loving the shading on the cloaks, looks really good, it might just be me being a bit wierd, but ain't the gobbo's a bit dark? I thought they were meant to be lighter skinned, but anyway, thats may just be mee. They be looking gurd, well done :)

I don't really know but I sorta like the dark skin. Plus its easy to do. I suppose it gos against the fluff as night goblins are always in the dark, so their skin should get paler? I'm not too bothered but might try improving it. Thanks in advance, Angels of fire.

I like them. Nice to see night gobbos that aren't black, or almost black!

I sorta like the dark skin.
I agree on this. Makes a nice contrast to the robes.

I suppose it gos against the fluff as night goblins are always in the dark.
Its your army, so its your fluff, if you like it, and enjoy painting it, then its fine. You cold always say they have dark skin because they're dirty from being underground!

So my birthday is coming up and one of my pressies is the new Dark elf battleforce. All I've got of my fledgling DE army is the army book and an assasin. I've already painted the assasin and pics will be coming shortly. This army is going to be on a raiding mission in some snowy place so they can fight against my current army. In addition I have completed the blue robed unit and the giant so their pics will a also appear alongside the assasin. Thanks in advance, Angels of fire.
