More 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.
