twisted moon's 2017

i thought i'd try to log my painting and modelling activities this year; i'm not sure how well i'll get on, but trying is the first step.
i repainted these warhammer regiments goblins over the first couple of weekends of the year, which completes the (non-army list compliant) goblin contingent of my goblinoid army, at least for the time being.

... although i now see i seem to have managed to hide mormo jabberinder behind mighty ugezod.
anyone know if these figures came with a background and rules, like the contemporaneous regiments of renown?

Re: twisted moon's 2017

over the course of last week's evenings i painted up these as substitutes for white gorillas in frostgrave. chimps are more vicious than gorillas, so seem a good fit. i also already had these figures, as i've painted a couple of the sculpts as jokeiro.

i try and get multiple duty out of my figures and scenery, so my feldstadt isn't that snowy.
it's been a productive year so far; it won't continue.

Re: twisted moon's 2017

finished the first five orcs with two-handed weapons this weekend; the unit will be ten strong. the second five are undercoated and awaiting further attention.
left to right they're a kev adams orc for heartbreaker games, two renegade miniatures orcs (again kev adams, i think), a ral partha gargantua orc and another renegade miniatures orc. i've had the renegade miniatures for a while, the other two are part of an order from ral partha europe i placed at the beginning of the year.

i've also started building my version of the mausoleum for frostgrave, but that's turned into a bigger project than expected.

That is the right attitude. I am doing the same, best of luck to us :D


...the (non-army list compliant) goblin contingent of my goblinoid army


If they complied to anything resembling protocol, would they truly be goblins? :D


Aah, Kev Adams greenskins are da Best. I have just acquired that Heartbreaker one with the grinning mug, lucky me to get to have a go at painting him too. He is currently marauding his way from Albion towards my painting camp in his warband called Da Parcel-Force, my spies tell me. Come Orctober I shall be prepared.

I particularly like the banner and the snow chimps. What models did you use for those chimps? I feel Jokaero look a little more orangutan like, but the chimps look good too.

you'll enjoy yourself, he's got some great details.
i'm a big fan of most of the heartbreaker range. at some point i'm intending to place a big order of the dwarves; most of kev's goblins made it into that contingent.

thanks, yes, i like the white apes too. my goblinoids are the blue moon crew, and almost all units have a similar banner with the leaders name on it. i've mostly used erny's name generator.

symphonicpoet wrote:What models did you use for those chimps?


they're bob olly sculpted chimps from mega miniatures animals range, three each of the three sculpts in a pack; i don't know if they're still available from another source.

that's the received wisdom, and i don't necessarily disagree. i picked these up about twelve years ago to use in a floorplan based wfrp convention scenario. at the time there weren't many orangutan miniatures about, or at least i couldn't find any.

Sorry. That may have come across as a criticism when it was not intended to. Two separate and unconnected observations which were probably more or less this in my mind: "Huh. Those are neat. Man, I'd love go get some Jokaero, but those are darned cool too and would go well with the monkeys I picked up from Curtis." (My closest Jokaero proxies are some Ramshackle monkeys that I've decided to call "Donald's Monkeys" after one with a rather dramatic combover and a fairly clear anger management problem.)

Anyway, sorry for the confusion. They're lovely models. No criticism was intended.
