This is my first blog, so I hope it does not suck too bad. I decided to do one in order to motivate me to paint all my NGs. Well the theme is going to be squig based but I haven't really come up with any fluff or names yet. Hopefully I can get some input here.
The army isn't going to be fielded all at once, but designed to be a cohesive looking army with many different options for battle. It is a bunch of work and will take a lot of time, but hopefully this blog will keep me motivated. Well, for an over view of what is to come (with more to add later)...

-Night Goblins from BFSP (only NG units nothing else)
-2 Night Goblin War bosses on Giant squigs
-6 Night Goblin Bosses
-4 Night Goblin Shamans
-1 Skarsnik (Gotts ta havem' even with 8th)
-20 wolf riders (NG and Squig conversion)
-1 Wolf chariot (Scratch built with NG and Squig conversion)
-2 spear chuckas (Scratch built with NG)
-2 Rock lobbas (scratch built NG and Squig)
-1 doom diver (NG coversion)
-4 Bases Snotlings (Imitate NG conversion)
-100 Night goblins
-9 Fanatics

I got alot of Ideas form around DaWarpath and other sites.. Don't remember from who, but thanks for the inspiration.

For now I have based the Spearmen, Archers, Shaman, and Dagskar from BFSP. They have all been primed with cheap black spray paint (97 cents) and I have put down two different base colors. I like to have a little variation in the colors of the skin.

These are the paints I used. I watered them down about 1/3 paint and 2/3 water. Using three coats to cover.

I am going to my lake house for a couple of days and hope to get the next layer of skin done by the time I come back. Should have pics posted by Wednesday.

Great to see you started a blog mate, there is nothing better to document how things are going and to motivate you to get moving. smile.gif

Love the shroom you created and can't wait to see your army take shape. smile.gif

Okay. I managed to find time to put the second coat on these things. I used the same ratio as before for water to paint, but only put one coat. The olive is over the teddy bear brown and the Grass green over the green Meadow.

Paints...

Edited my first post to give everyone an idea of what I was trying to accomplish. As time goes on I would appreciate any input on a back story and/or names for units. Thanks smile.gif

Just to let You guys know. Don't worry, I am not going to post up for every layer of paint. By my next post all of the skin should be done highlights and all. Hopefully that's up by Monday, but more likely Thursday...

I don't like to give negative feedback, especially since I am not a brilliant painter myself. But I'm not sure about putting green over brown, looks a bit odd at the moment. Maybe it will turn out ok I dunno... but that was my initial impression. The other unit looks fine.

Yeah, It does look weird but the end product is more like this...
user posted image I posted this up a while back for feed back. But this is generally going to be the painting theme for everything (with some yellow hoods and different patterns). I Really liked the way everything looked in WAR. So that is a big influence for my painting and conversion style.

I agree that the end one looks quite good. On the intermediate stage it looked a bit odd... but you obviously know what you are doing so pls carry on and take no notice of my comments. smile.gif

I am always glad to hear comments. Please keep them coming! smile.gif
The reason I do the brown is that in person you can see the brown crevices in the hands and face and I think it adds a subtle contrasting layer.

For the chariot, doom diver, and lobber, I had the idea to make them from scratch because I thought it would be cool to use bones instead of wood. I was going to use bone for everything, virtually no wood on any model. I thought it would be unique, and fit the NG style. I think that if you lived in caves there wouldn't be too much wood down there. While tunneling about they might encounter bones and such, or possibly spoils of war. What does everyone think? Good Idea/Bad Idea?

I decided to make Dagskar ( he will just be a unit champion) a little different but I still haven't figured out how to use green stuff or milliput. I sculpt very well with clay (I use my hands and less tools) but using putty is so different it sticks to everything. But here he is. Let me know what you think smile.gif

At another look he kind of looks more like a standard bearer...huh...maybe I should trim down the weapon a bit.

I presumed he was a standard bearer until I read your post. Can't you keep it as a standard bearer ? With Green stuff, make sure you wet your tools before they touch the green stuff, that way it wont stick to them. YOu have to keep them wet all the time.
