GW Gobbos and Trolls for AoS

To continue my somewhat focussed attempts at painting, I went with Gobbos

 Green is the GW colour after all, but I tried to keep it to an earthy green instead of a bright green.

There wasn't really any rhyme or reason to painting so many champions, standards and musicians (mostly hidden at the back looking at the photos!), but they'll come in handy once I paint a whole load more of them for multiple units, because as we all know, the only better than goblins is more goblins.

I went with red for their outfits as I thought black was a little drab.... and painting that many black cloaks didn't fill me with excitement!

This is the side of them I'm hoping to see most of as they charge towards the enemy.

And where would Goblins be without their larger cousins to back them up?

Nowhere good, that's for sure so here are 6 smelly Trolls (or Troggoths as the IP wizards at GW insist of calling them - insert eye rolling smiley here).

Colder colours for these chaps as they are river trolls so I wanted them to look a bit slimy.

Lots of rusted weapons as orange rust goes rather nicely with the blue/grey in this wargamers humble opinion.  I also tried to give the scales a shiny look, which was successful in parts, but a little heavy handed in others.

Lots of flesh to highlight on the back and I really did find them rather good fun to paint.  The scale difference of them with the goblins is brilliant, here's a shot to show them with their little cousins.

32 Goblins and 6 Trolls down and whole lot more of them needed!  I was supposed to be painting elves, but seeing this lot made me want to paint them up..... and we have to follow where the painting muse takes us after all.

Great stuff Jamie. Indeed, the painting muse is the ultimate authority who must be followed...I say as I randomly order more Byzantine stuff *cough*
