Great army Kevin, any chance for a group shot?
Paiant Slapah - April 24, 2011 08:30 PM (GMT)
Very green, and very beautiful. Some really nice work!

Love your Trolants Colors. Great looking Army.

Holy S**t. You just posted the goblin army of my dreams. Loving all the classic goblin goodness. So much so that I don't know where to start... The shields on the first 2 big units are really well done. And you even made the 6th ed goblins look good.
I thought I was familiar with most of the older gobbo figures but you have ones even I don't recognise. The 'Stunty Stompers' for example, are they plastics from a box-set?
Last question... Whats your formula for the gobbo skin tone?

THIS IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST, AND MY MOST FAVOURITE, GOBLIN ARMY I'VE EVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVER SEEN!!!!
Absolutely amazing sir! The chariot you've put Grom on is awesome - great conversion. And those old models are incredible, and very well painted. And those giant things! Wow. JUST WOW. I'm tempted to put every smiley down because YOUR ARMY IS SO FRIGGIN ZIGGIN AWESOME!!!!!!! :lol: :o :P :wub: :rolleyes: :yarr!: :D :) :ph43r: ^_^ ;) B) :fish: :vomit:

I agree, this army is amazing, the bright colours and green bases takes me back to the awesomeness of the 90's. The quality level of the freehand on the shields and banners is consistently really good throughout the army. I think Grom's chariot would have benefited from some front wheels and another row of 4 wolves pulling it. I love all the different giants and Squigs, great work!

I love all those smug old style grins! :D It takes me right back to why I started playing the game in the first place.

Best collection of classic gobbos I have seen. Wonderful work mate!
smokemeakipper - April 25, 2011 06:55 AM (GMT)
excellent goblin army kevin. love all the old models, they have so much character.id just be worried putting grom on a big chariot like that, just shouts 'cannonballs this way please'!
please keep painting and posting. this kind of thing really inspires me to get my own goblin army finished (if there is such a thing....doubt it).
Kees (aka Ghenkadh) - April 25, 2011 08:56 AM (GMT)
This overview is really great! Old style models and painting combines with the few newer models.
Nice done indeed.
Groznit Goregut - April 25, 2011 01:03 PM (GMT)
I didn't hear that you were at Adepticon until after I'd left. It's too bad that I had a chance to see the army first hand (if you did bring this one). Also, it would have been good to meet the famous Kevin C.
Love the models.
BorkBork - April 25, 2011 02:08 PM (GMT)
think i have seen a few pics before (definately the fantastic grom chariot) but i really dont mind seeing this twice....or thrice or a hundred times..
btw, that knightly gobbo champ in the first picutere, what brand is he?
Tokamak - April 25, 2011 03:44 PM (GMT)
Those classic common goblins look way better than the plastics. These things really need a rehaul.
Tartar Sauce - April 25, 2011 03:54 PM (GMT)
Love classic Goblins, thats what Goblins should look like.
@BorkBork: Thats an old Marauder Goblin officer http://www.solegends.com/marauder/mm30goblins.htm
BorkBork - April 25, 2011 05:35 PM (GMT)
i just love that model.
Guru_Swami - April 25, 2011 07:56 PM (GMT)
Well, everyone's already beat me to it but WOW!!!! LOVE the classic night gobbos! :wub:
What was your color formula for the squigs? All of the colors are so crisp and bright, just as a squig should be! :rolleyes: The orange looks great, I can never seem to get my orange to come out just right.
Gorks_wundapantz - April 25, 2011 10:56 PM (GMT)
love the old models. great paint jobs, esp on the squigherd. how long have you been collecting?
KevinC - April 26, 2011 05:15 PM (GMT)
Hi guys, thanks for all the compliments...I'm thrilled that you guys like my Goblins.
|Great army Kevin, any chance for a group shot?|
-----Thanks, I'll have to arrange one at some point. I don't often take a lot of pics, but next time I do I'll try for a group shot...
|The 'Stunty Stompers' for example, are they plastics from a box-set?|
--------No, those gobbos are a mix of old metal Citadel and Marauder.
|Whats your formula for the gobbo skin tone?|
-------I actually use an out-of-production citadel colour, Putrid Green. Before they discontinued the colour, I bought a hole bunch of pots! There is a 'Game Color' paint called Verde Bilis Livery Green (72033), I have not used it, but it looks like a similar color as Putrid Green.
|btw, that knightly gobbo champ in the first picutere, what brand is he?|
Yup, Marauder...a lovely figure. Although I use him as a Goblin Boss, he'd make a great Warboss or Big Boss!
|What was your color formula for the squigs? All of the colors are so crisp and bright, just as a squig should be!|
---------Well I always prime everything white, so that the colours will be brighter. I guess the trick I do, whether it's orange or yellow or whatever, I highlight or dry brush the model with pure white, then go over the white with the colour. So in example, an orange Squig: primed white, painted a bright orange, washed with a reddish colour, highted/dry brushed with white then over the white with a bright orange.
|how long have you been collecting?|
---------Since 1987 or 88!

|THIS IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST, AND MY MOST FAVOURITE, GOBLIN ARMY I'VE EVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVEREVER SEEN!!!!|
------Thanks a lot, I'm glad you like it, very flattered by your remark!
|id just be worried putting grom on a big chariot like that, just shouts 'cannonballs this way please'!|
-------Lol, I know, I know...I built the chariot pre-8th edition! When faced against cannons, I deploy Grom behind Trolls, so that they might 'catch' the cannon ball before it reaches Grom (if the Troll is not slain, the cannon ball stops). Otherwise, I rely on the Lucky Banner and Regeneration!
|I didn't hear that you were at Adepticon until after I'd left.|
-------Ah, would have been cool to chat about goblinoids! Next time! :D
Morten C - April 26, 2011 07:23 PM (GMT)
Huge fan of all your models. Terrific army :yarr!:
Those classic goblins are awesome. They look splendid compared to the plastics. I've bought my goblins from all kinds of different companies, and looking at your awesome army made me wanna start painting that unit ;)
Great work :)
Timbor - April 27, 2011 01:07 PM (GMT)
Very nice! Are those troll giants made by GW? Never seen them before.
Rog - April 27, 2011 02:17 PM (GMT)
Kudos on the dedication to painting. I waited for all the pics to load up on my crappy connection just for the awe of the mass of units. Now that's a proper goblin WAAAGH!
KevinC - April 29, 2011 02:35 AM (GMT)
|Are those troll giants made by GW? |
---------They are from Foundry miniatures.
Brog Ironfang - April 29, 2011 06:18 AM (GMT)
I really like the squigs and the trolls. Did you collect the models when they were in stores or pick them up from ebay?
It's nice to see how models looked at the beginning...
Also I don't want to steal your thread but is there a 8ed Indy Chaos Dwarf Book? (I know you did the previous ones and I wonder if there will be the 8ed one).
Father Grumpmas - May 1, 2011 08:30 PM (GMT)
That. Ladies and Gentlemen, is why we play Orcs and Goblins :D
gjnoronh2 - May 2, 2011 01:01 AM (GMT)
I've played against Kevin for twenty years on the tournament circuit in the US. The army really looks amazing on the table. Though I have to admit Kev I rebased my O and G army with 'modern' basing techniques. . . .maybe it's time :)
Squigkikka - May 2, 2011 07:27 AM (GMT)
That is one hell of an epic army. So... so good looking! I love how colorful it is! I can practically hear the mad cackling!
I think I especially love all the chariots and the shields/banners- the leering faces you've made are amazing! So Zoggin' good!
No wonder you manage so well in tournies! Opponents are shamed into defeat when against such a badass looking army!
KevinC - May 14, 2011 11:12 PM (GMT)
Again, thanks for all the kind remarks. I'm pleased that you guys like my Gobbos...
|I really like the squigs and the trolls. Did you collect the models when they were in stores or pick them up from ebay? |
-------I've been collecting since the late 80s. What's ebay? (kidding :) )
|Also I don't want to steal your thread but is there a 8ed Indy Chaos Dwarf Book? (I know you did the previous ones and I wonder if there will be the 8ed one).|
------I was planning on putting out a revised 8th edition PDF, but since the Warhammer Forge Chaos Dwarf list is coming out in a couple of months, I guess there is no need for me to update the Dwarfs of Chaos PDF.
I do have an FAQ and 8th edition errata up on The Warmonger Club boards however.
|The army really looks amazing on the table. Though I have to admit Kev I rebased my O and G army with 'modern' basing techniques. . . .maybe it's time|
-------Thanks Gary! I know, everyone tells me to do my bases differently, but I like the old school style. But I'll consider...
Snikpik - May 15, 2011 08:16 AM (GMT)
I've replied already but would like to do so again:
Awesome awesome awesome. Sometimes old is better and soem of your stuff certainly is.
KevinC - August 21, 2011 07:36 PM (GMT)
I put up a few more pics today (8/21/11), a few more monsters and characters...check them out please! Thanks.
Oglok_the_Horrible - November 17, 2011 11:36 AM (GMT)
Hello !!! I would like know ... where is from this " great stone troll " ? http://i277.photobucket.com/albums/kk77/ha...cs/IMG_0059.jpg
Where Could I buy it :wub:
Father Grumpmas - November 18, 2011 04:46 AM (GMT)
If you mean the big purple guy in the back ground then it is a Wargames Foundry figure.
If you mean the big one-eyed guy in the front, it is a Rackham figure (Black Troll) - currently out of production but still available from some on-line figure sellers and also pops up on e-bay quite a lot.
Fang'ead Nutya - January 8, 2012 07:06 AM (GMT)
awesome gobbo's. But I absolutely adore the squigs. I Really am too regimental in my painting thinking and techniques and doing something like that scares me.
And you've got my favourite gobbo in there. The one flipping the bird at da enemy
