Nord's Painting Saga (Mar27 - Krom the Paunch)
« on: January 31, 2018, 10:07:56 AM »
I tend to work on different projects, and rather than open several threads I think this year I will just dump everything into one thread. So here we go with my first month of the year, you will have already seen the Mordor Orcs (Oathmark goblins), but there's also somebody to fight them now.

For those interested, there's more information and more pics on my blog - https://paintsngluenrocknroll.blogspot.co.uk/

Splendid painting!

Those are the Northstar plastics? Really good-looking miniatures. Did you make them straight out of the box? (Didn't check the blog, thus sorry if you answer this question there.)

Those goblins are amazing, the purple really ties them together :)

From what I can see, its pure Oathmark plastic Goblins, with the preorder metal Goblin thrown in, and the dwarfs are all GW plastic, the axes are dead give aways.

Great stuff!

The tutorials on your blog are terrific, by the way; I "softened" my preshading on some skaven recently, in line with your examples, and was very pleased with the improvement. So thanks!

The dwarves look great. I like the leather armour look a lot better than the metal plates of the GW paint job.

Lovely stuff as ever. I wonder if you would be so good as to take a comparison pic of an Oathmark goblins next to one of GW Hobbit goblins? Would much appreciated!

Excellent painting, and I must say that I really llike the GW dwarves (Never seen the models before!).

Started collecting orcs and goblins from 1992 (like you do) and picked up a troll in the process. Old school figure in a more modern paint job. More pictures on my facebook page.
