This past week I took a break from painting Dark Elves and Gnomes and did the “Goblin Bodyguard” from the Bones 4 Goblin Heroes set. I had planned to work on all three of the Goblins from the Goblins Heroes set at the same time, as kind of side project as I worked on the Darkreach figures, so I had prepped the figures in the usual way, soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them. I then glued them to 1" brown-primed fender washers with Aleene’s Tacky glue. I then glued the washers onto a tongue depressor with a couple drops of Elmer’s white glue.
I then had begun painting all their exposed skin areas with Citadel Contrast “Snakebite Leather”. But when I was studying them after the “Snakebite Leather” application, I realized that they really weren’t similar enough to paint as a group, and so I popped them off the tongue depressor so I could work on them separately. I reattached the bodyguard to a pill bottle with some blue tac. After that, I painted his loin cloth with Reaper MSP “Blood Red”, his boots with Citadel Contrast “Wyldwood”,and his gauntlets with Americana “Fawn”.
Next, I painted his belt and straps with Americana “Charcoal Grey”, and is scimitar, armor, and belt buckle with Ceramcoat “Charcoal”. I also painted his earrings with Folk Art Brushed Metal “Brushed Bronze”. Then after everything had a chance to dry, I gave his loin cloth, belts, straps, and gauntlets all a coat of Citadel “Agrax Earthshade ” wash.
