Now, my first and only warhammer army was nightgoblins. In 40k I play orks. I've had no less than three greenskin bloodbowl teams - one orc and two goblin teams (although one of those teams are painted blue to look like smurfs). Suffice to say greenskins are close to my heart so I jumped at this oppurtunity to model some different looking gobbos.
Adding to that I had already made the little nurgly bellringer which, like the standard bearer, fitted better in the Old World setting than in 40k and fitted my vison of what a corrupted gobbo would look like. So I promptly rebased him and then got working on a buddy. I decided to make this one less mutated and came up with something that looks a bit like a greenskin version of a skaven plaguemonk. He´s also pretty similar to these rather excellent old minis from the now sadly defunct french company Rackham: Goblin Mutants
The two gobbos side by side. The pair will eventually be joined by a third member.
I'll leave you with some work progress shots of the hooded little troublemaker.
Nice to see these... I am planning a unit of Chaos Goblins for my Oldhammer project using the old metal Night Goblins as the base... horns, tentacles, extra arms, etc will all be conversions and the color scheme will hopefully make them less... err... Night Gobliny.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a plan!Delete
This is a perfect Nurgly grot! Are you planning an other one ? By the way mate, got my new blog ! I'd be pleased if you dare make a tour http://legatho-s-warehouse.blogspot.fr/.ReplyDelete
My two cents.

Forgot your reading glasses? ;-)
Nice blog and thanks for the compliment in the initial post! You should add a friend connect "join this site button" to make it easier to follow you!
I wasn't hearing gobbo with the third member. So lol have to wash my binoculars. ;)Delete
ooooh send the ice cubes that was a burn!Delete
Lovely. I was thinking of using cut down zombie parts to make Skaven slaves so well done you've done the test run for me!ReplyDelete
Ohhh, that little guy is perfect! Love the way you painted the face! And everything else as well ;)ReplyDelete
I agree - he turned out pretty darned good. Got lots of character this one.
Perfect. So happy you liked the idea on the gobz!ReplyDelete
Have you thought about trying out Gnoblars as a base for the 3rd?
I might have done that if I had any gnoblars.
I dont so I'll probably stick to goblin and zombie parts and whatever else I can scrounge up. Gnoblars are a bit too small as well - I see chaos gobbos as somewhat heftier...
He is creepy but colourful, I like him :)
