Blood Bowl Goblins


Just a small painting update on those Blood Bowl goblins I bought a couple days ago. I plan on giving them an orange and blue color scheme with white numbers and symbols on them. I am trying out some painting techniques I've read and watched many times before but never tried so hopefully they'll look nice.

At first I tried making the armor blue (which turned out purple on the first batch) and the clothes orange but I didn't like how it looked.

The second attempt I made the armor orange and the clothes blue. I liked this result a lot better than the previous attempt.

 A few things were hard to paint. I'm not used to painting bright colors on miniatures yet as I mostly paint with darker, easier to apply, colors. So working with this home made orange and weird blue/purple color I had to apply 2-3 thin coats of the paint.

I tried adding cool details like blood, scratches, and nice highlights but that didn't really show in the final miniature or the pictures. I like the skin tones on both the miniatures. On the first I went for a stark contrast meaning I painted over a green which had a dark wash over it to really show the details. I think it worked. The second one I went for a more subtle look where I toned the base green with a wash and then used the same base to show the shade difference. Subtle, almost too subtle, but I like it.

Hope you enjoy the smaller update,
