Soon Super Admin. Tom, Mighty Avatar of Blessed Sigmar, shall take the Great Hammer of Violent Persuasion & smite the Foul Hard Drive of Contrariness to bring forth the Images of Questionable Quality to enlighten the Masses as to the Nature of Night Goblin Kind.

While we're waiting for himself to run out of better things to do with his time, I'll fill you in on Wonders you are about to witness: this is the first of two war bands and will follow the "official" Orc & Goblin list with the Uber Goblins being "counts-as-Orcs".

The Uber Goblins are the product of genetic mutation caused by the consumption of a certain sub-species of Mad Cap Mushroom with a high concentration of Fungeroid. The side effect of this substance causes an increase in size, & muscle mass with a noticeable decrease in common sense, a rare quality in Night Goblins at best [as a banned substance it keeps them from participating in Professional sports such as Blood Bowl, & others that have no edged weapons as a silly rule] . Whereas Orcs generally choose leaders who are great, hulking, muscle bound psychopaths, Night Goblins choose UberGoblin leaders who are cunning, sneaky, drug-crazed, muscle bound psychopaths [in the background Gracy Slick wails out "White Rabbit"].

The four completed minis are the Troll, Dog Lip the Gourmet [ever practical the first mini I panted is the last mini the band of heros(?) will be able to afford ], next up is the Shaman, Mad-As-A-Loon Mugwhomp McGoon, seen with the last & certainly the least, the Tall Fellows [Big 'Uns], the McGrunge Brothers: Felinious & Nefarious. The rest of the guys are in the primed & ready to go stage with the Fearless Leader recognizeable by the back banner/lantern thingy which will bear the inscription: "Cogito Ergo Sum".

So READY OR NOT, HERE THEY COME eventually! Sleep

Wonderful work, DeafNala! I also like your old skool painting style. And the conversions are just hilarious. Pretty cool.

I wonder if the rest of the warband mistook some poisonous mushrooms for mad caps mushies and thus turned to stone? Suspect They look like the BTB Terra Cotta Soldiers. Very Happy

Well, I guess the Night Goblins should look stoned, although not quite THAT stoned. Actually that's my latest priming tech: a wash type coat of black with a white dry brush. It kind of gives me the bright effects of a white undercoat & the shading of a black, but mostly it makes it easier to see detailing on the mini.THIS IS A SECRET TECHNIQUE: DON'T TELL ANYONE. Suspect

THANKS ALL YOU GUYS FOR THE NICE COMMENTS. Positive feedback from one's peers is always a fine motivator. I don't think I'll ever be a truly great painter, but I do put out some pieces with a fair amount of character. It's helpful to remember when viewing my work that the greatest influence on the pieces was a lifetime's worth of exposure to Bugs Bunny cartoons. geek

Very nice deaf. I love 'em.

I also must say, I've spent a couple minutes every day thinking about your "secret technique," and after all my pondering, I must say: "FREAKING GREAT IDEA!" It highlights the high parts from the very beginning, and you can use one slightly wattered down color and start out with some great highlights.

Thanks for the idea. Bravo. (But I won't tell anyone else;))

AHA, you've found out the cunning plan; i.e., to lull would be opponents into a false sense of security. Of course, now I'm going to have to kill you; sorry about that. Suspect

The red is awesome! I went with a traditional black robes, red and brown details, yellow dags and checks, but this is particularly inspiring.

Be sure to check out my night goblin warband rules, based on the originals many people use. In it's current state, well i don't like it, needs some more overhauling!

It can be found in the rules section, to lazy to dig up the link...

Thanks MUCHO! When I saw the Red Brotherhood title, my first reaction was "hey, someone swiped my name." I'm glad you like them. The BAND of Brothers is now 40 something of completed minis & miscellaneous paraphenalia including some designed to fit with your VERY WELL THOUGHT OUT rules.

Thanks for the kind comments, Guys.
Back when I was starting out on this road to insanity, the REALLY good painters kept their techniques a secret that they intended to take to the grave...I always thought that SUCKED!

These still make me smile as much as they did over a year ago, Alan.

Did you ever manage to do more Bar Wars? That was a great idea that we all hoped would see a stratospheric rise to fame.

Thanks Andy; since the Lads were MEANT to be silly, I'm delighted they induced a smile or two.

The Bar Wars Saga is still raging across rickety, perilously HIGH bridges. I'm winning...one of the advantages of a solo game; the disadvantage is, OF COURSE, I'm also losing. With their recent procurement of the Frag's Rock Beacon, the Red Brotherhood & their associates at Fast Flo's have outclassed the Gang from Dead Dora's [living impaired], & Beauteous [aka Brainless] Bertha's Entourage [Dwarves] currently at Otto Lucht's Der Pitts.

I'm really glad this thread resurfaced, I love these guys! Nice, unique painting style, and the uber-gobboes are priceless! Also, that's a pretty cool trick you've got going there to bring out the depth to the models, I may have to give it a swing sometime. I too was wondering at first if they were some sort of stone-golem-afflicted greenskins. Seriously, though, that technique is ingenious! I love it.

I've never heard of these "Bar Wars," but it sounds like fun! Reminds me of an old WD mini-game with a rather surly ogre bartender who was trying to keep the peace between the various patrons of his bar...
