Killin' All Your Dwarves: Moria Goblins

Started these guys back in January during our fun LOTR movie and painting marathon. They only needed another five hours to finish, and I finally decided it was time to just rock them out. I'm glad I did, it feels good to have something else in the "painted" column.

First up are the Prowlers, because they're my favorite:

I went for the classic Moria Goblin look, why mess with a good thing? The deep red against their green skin looks really sharp.

 These two crack me up. I don't know what's so amusing about them, but sheesh, they make me laugh.

 All my fancy metal leaders. I like the feel of the metal ones more- I don't know what it is about the weight of them that makes them feel better than plastic.

The whole gang isn't quite as big as I'd like it to be. It's looking likely that I'll be playing LOTR at Adepticon (got my tickets and booked my hotel, woot woot!). It only "looks" like it, because I'm on the wait list for the doubles 40k tournament which is during the same time, but which I would prefer to play. So, for the moment, I'm treating is as though I'm playing LOTR and getting these guys ready.

In preparation for that, I should probably get another box of Goblins. I need to base my Barrow Wights, but they're painted. Primed but unpainted are some Dead Marsh Spectres, Tainted on Mount (Foot is already painted), and a Dweller in the Dark. Not an impossible number of things to paint by any measure. I keep putting off the Dweller because I simply cannot decide how I want to paint him. But I have some time to sort him out.

  1. They look great! I much prefer these guys over the Goblin Town goblins... Looking forward to seeing the rest of your army.
    Good luck at Adepticon!
    I did get my Galadhrim warhost primed back before it got to cold. I still haven't had a chance to play LOTR yet, but I am looking forward to it some day. Assembling the elves were a blast. Except the Finecast Commanders... It only took them sending me two more sets until I got some that weren't complete crap... At least my Haldir is in metal!
