Painting Minis – D&D The Legend of Drizzt #1 – Goblin Cutters

Goblin Cutter - FrontMore painted minis!  This time, I chose minis from one of my newly-acquired D&D adventure board games, The Legend of Drizzt.  I know, I know…  I haven’t finished Wrath of Ashardalon, yet.  But, I went with goblins for a couple reasons.  Reason #1:  They’re goblins!  Nearly every D&D adventure includes goblins somewhere.  Reason #2:  Playing off of Reason #1.  As I’m gearing up to run my very first D&D adventure as the DM, The Lost Mine of Phandelver, I needed goblins early on.  So, I’m going to be painting up more minis that fit into that adventure before I finish up WoA.

Nothing too crazy here.  I went with fairly standard colors, as compared with the orcs that I’ve already completed.  (As always, I’ve been using Reaper Master Series paints.)  My usual leather brown recipe – a nearly even mix of Harvest Brown and Shadowed Stone.  The eyes are white with a tiny bit of yellow, and the pupils are Crimson Red.  The green skin needed to be a bit lighter for goblins, so I went with a mixture of Turf Green and Dirty Bone for the skin color.  Some black accents here and there.  Honed Steel for the dagger, with a touch of watered down Crimson Red for some blood.  And then I made each one unique by changing the trim color.  One uses dark green, one uses brown, and the third uses black.

Lastly, I based the minis with a tan sand.

These guys were pretty straightforward.  No surprises here.
