I painted my final entry for the Old World Army Challenge in June. Wood elf scouts, plus a few extras including a small forest dragon. Pics a the site, below:

I really like the Cauldronborn Powrie that I painted recently to use as non-RoC daemons and have been considering other figures to use for the same purpose. Looking at what I've already got in bins I came up with Crucible goblins. A few were already painted long ago in dark goblin-y green, but I'm looking at an alternate color and tried a test figure in pale white on one of the unpainted figures.





I like how it looks. I might try re-painting just the flesh on one of the green ones to see how practical that will be. I don't really want to repaint them from bare metal.

Cool. Great to see the goblins painted up. I have a bunch that need work including the one flying on the bat (all still available from Ral Partha Europe).

Oooh! Thank you for reminding me. I've got a half painted bat rider stashed away somewhere! They really are nice figures. Would love to see how you paint them.

I found it! I'll have to finish painting it after all these years!



And here are the old goblins with the green flesh repainted, alongside the freshly painted test figure. Next, on to the rest of the unpainted ones.

I'm already trying to come up with an idea for another unit of non-Warhammer/RoC canon daemons. I'm extremely happy with re-purposing these goblins and the Cauldronborn Powrie, but I want even more now!  lol

Those are superb - great colour scheme!

I've long been curious about these goblins (RPE sells them as 'hobgoblins'). They're almost Tekumel-ish and might make good Shen with the addition of tails and clawed feet. Really interesting figures.

I know of Tekumel, but I'm not really familiar with it. They are really interesting figures. When the game came out, I got involved with some playtesting and was instantly drawn to the goblins. I still really like the figures and wish there were a few more variations. I've done some minor conversions (just weapon swaps) to help with that.


The latest.... I painted the 5 Cro's Goblin Raiders from Alternative Armies to go with the previously painted Hob-Goblin Raiders (also AA) for use as a small unit of half-orc skirmishers/raiders. They have a nice retro, motley look to them.

Cool. I love the standard bearer. I doubt I'll get to painting those goblins with the bat rider for some time myself to be honest. lol

I really like that standard bearer as well.

Looking at these photos again, I'm wonderimg how well some of the old Asgard orcs would fit in...

Beautiful army! I have most of those figures too. Best wood elf figures in my opinion.

I'm not sure who you're talking about, there are two possibilities....  lol

I agree. They are a bit stylized, but they're nice and dynamic and capture the aesthetic of the period I was getting into larger battle games (vs. RPGs)

I do have to say that Tom Meier's elves probably rival these as being some of my favorite wood elf figures, but with quite a different aesthetic. But since out gaming group settled on WFB after trying various games in the '80s, the Jes Goodwin Citadel sculpts won out in my collection.



Unfortunately, I couldn't get one before the OWAC ended. But nonetheless, I now have a Zoat and I'm thrilled to add it to my collection, and the wood elves I just completed in particular.

Just got it this week, and it headed straight to the top of the painting list!
