very VERY nice work to look at. All those goblins just pop and keep the eye interested without being overwhelmed or busy. I really like it all.

Thanks JonAtron! I'm taking a break from Goblins for a bit, but I recently finished painting a mix of old dwarfs and chaos dwarfs which you might like, so I'll be posting some photos of them over coming weeks (and as normal, more on my blog).

Starting with this pre-slotta Citadel dwarf thief. She's the oldest miniature in my collection - I believe dating back to August 1983 so a few months older than me. It's a much simpler sculpt than the Knightmare Goblins above so it didn't take long at all to paint.

Class bit of painting that - well done. I love the spotty bag and I think the dress has come out really well.

Thanks Portman! The spotty bag was a late-night flash of inspiration. I wanted to add some detail, but not too much. Now, another week, another old Citadel dwarf... this one with a dragon.

As usual, there are more photos on my blog - many more, this time, 'cos I'm pretty proud of this one!

Totally amazing stuff! I think you are right, that troll is the best bit of painting I've seen in a while. I'd be seriously chuffed of I'd done that! Keep 'em coming!

Love your goblins, and those butterfly wings are astonishing. Muted palettes be damned, those are some excellent bold miniatures! I'm going to check out your blog.

Wow! Your Monarch Dragon looks very good, nice free hand on a surface usually very plain!

It would be a perfect match for a troop of Wood Elves, or a Bretonnian regiment lead by a demoiselle wearing a robe in the same color pattern than the wings.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone. Galpino and Plaiecivile, your comments came on my birthday last year so especially good timing. "Monarch Dragon" is a great name for this one, and indeed I pictured it sitting among a troop of probably-never-to-be-painted wood elves!

For the last six months I've been absolutely buried with work, so I've neglected my blog, and this community, and even worse, haven't had time to paint anything. But I still have some of the minis I painted last year to share, my take on some old Chaos Dwarfs. As usual there are more photos on my blog - a lot more in this case, about 30 pictures I guess. If I can remember how to link properly!
