A small update, as I paint very slowly/infrequently :(
I left the bases undone for now as I fell in love with Goblinlee's autumnal bases and ran to ebay to order treemendous leaves which are in the post

Looks very awesome! I must get on with my own Hobgoblins at some point too.

I feel inspired by the colours too!

Thanks Phreedh, it was kinda an accidental colour choice to be honest, I was about to give the first guy I painted a D&D style blue nose, but with a loaded paintbrush I chickened out and slapped it on his hair instead, and I quite liked it so I ran with that for the hair colour for the others.
I'm still working up the courage to paint Gyokurinti himself, even though I have two minis of him, I'm not sure I could do his Book of Battalions description justice, particularly his Chaos Attribute of brightly coloured skin, so I've been scouring the two RoC books and old heavy metal articles for inspiration :)

Great looking unit, the paint job gives them a very unique identity.

Awesome! Great to see the "real" hobgobs getting some love! Reminds me a bit of the color scheme on the SoL site. Great job all around. :D
So is Gyokurinti last in your que? Interesting & somewhat forgotten model.

Thanks Naagruz, it was your thread in the WIP section that inspired me to start filling the gaps in my collection and go for a hobgoblin horde.
I'm still missing quite a few of the C36 models, and I still don't have a Hobgoblin temple dog rider, I have the samurai and the DE however, so I'll try my luck when I get a trades list together.
Gyokurinti will be left for a little while yeah, i'm unsure how to tackle him based on his description.
I have two of the model, so I may post the one with the slightly damaged tail to you, and then I can copy your work ;)

Overly generous, but I'd be lost with two. :D I hear you on the damaged tail; it's hard to find one with a tail that cast cleanly.
I'm aiming to get to Gyokurinti before I dive into the mass of Lund minis. Funny thing about that mini is it shares the same body as the "Elite" from the Autumn '85 Citadel Journal.

Speaking of Temple Dogs, I'm definitely stealing this guys idea: http://cianty-tabletop.blogspot.com/200 ... e-dog.html . The existing hobgob model isn't really dynamic enough for that type of pose, but Ghazak Khan would be a good fit.
