Like Lee, I am taking part in the Flame On Gauntlet (see Blessed Knight's May Gauntlet thread)

I gave the group four choices of what I should work on this month and they voted:

Squid Hoppers! May_Gauntlet_vote

All things I wanted to add to my Pirate Orc army, especially the Squig-types (which is why there are two types!)

Squid Hoppers won it, so I got to work with some Tyranid Spore Mines and Orc heads:

Squid Hoppers! HPIM6938

Then I added some tentacles:

Squid Hoppers! HPIM6939

And then more tentacles and the beginnings of their bodies:

Squid Hoppers! HPIM6974

I've got as far as suckers and fins on one of them:

Squid Hoppers! HPIM6973

Squid Hoppers! HPIM6972

The Pirate Goblin riders will follow as soon as the squid themselves are finished - watch this space!

Those should be outright comedy once their finished! What are you thinking of painting them like? Hopefully once it's painted the orc faces won't be recognizable, apart from that it's a quality idea and I look forward to seeing some crazy gobbos clinging on to their backs. Very Happy

These aren't just Squid, they are mutant Squig/Squid hybrids. So I don't mind if they look a bit Orcy - Squigs are part of the Orc ecology (Orcology?) after all.

I'm thinking a nice bright Squiggy red. bounce :cherry:

By George, YOU'VE DONE IT AGAIN! Those are HILARIOUS! I caught the first stages on the Flame On Forum; they were strange, but cool then. NOW they're among the most imaginative if NUTS pieces you've come up with. You're maintaining your position as my hero nicely. WELL DONE! Squid Hoppers! 665330

Wonderful idea! Great execution. Without goblins they can be included in a pirate orc mob... Hmmm...

Hackbarr:

The Kalamari Krew:

Squid Hoppers! HPIM6978

Squid Hoppers! HPIM6979

Squid Hoppers! HPIM6980

Squid Hoppers! HPIM6981

Still some work to be done: they don't all have fins and suckers yet and I've four more Goblins to make.

Hakbarr has a really stern little face, dishing out the orders from his squishy perch. Maybe add reigns? Or some way of clinging to/directing the squids?

Looking forward to seeing the other 4!

Looking great Warboss! They remind me of Davey Jones off PoC movies haha.

Also I am sure you know this, but Black Scorpion came out with O&G pirate minis. Great find.

I think the "build phase" is over, so it's time to get painting! Here's the last WIP photos:

Squid Hoppers! HPIM6985

Squid Hoppers! HPIM6984

Squid Hoppers! HPIM6983

Squid Hoppers! HPIM6982

I did a little more work on Hackbarr's hat to make it taller at the front:

AAAAARRRGGH! The Kalamari Krew ARE really shaping up. Hackbarr's bigger hat looks good...you MIGHT consider making it EVEN bigger for a TRULY impressively silly looking mini. GREAT WORK...keep it up! Squid Hoppers! 665330

But look out, the second gobo has a mold line on his leg.

Thanks guys!

@Magnolia: I must have the worst box of common goblins they ever made - a true "Friday Job". There is so much flash and so many mold lines you wouldn't believe it. I have spent ages cleaning these gitz up. Mad

Ack! You could compare it to sort of OCD behavior, like rounding numbers up to the nearest ten when adjusting volume. Yet for me mould lines are the enemy, I think if I missed one I'd have to scrape the paint off and get it.

Generally, if I don't notice a mold line before painting, I paint it like it's SUPPOSED to be there. Suspect
