As promised, here is the first of many posts about my Night Goblin army for Warhammer Fantasy. I only play Fantasy a few times a year, and I think that I've only played about 10 games total! As much as I would love to do a new army for our FLGS's new campaign I simply don't play enough to make the purchases worth it. Instead, I've decided to finish my all Goblin army. Last fall I ordered enough magnets to magnetize all of these little guys to there movement trays. I also made a few custom trays for the war machines and my Squig Hoppers. You'll see more of those as I go along.
Over the next few posts, I'm going to show you how I'm handling painting an army of about 300 models! The campaign I'm in is an escalation campaign that started at 1000 points and we'll add 250 points each week. Since this is week two, and I like to play with painted armies when possible, I've got a little catching up to do. By the time you read this, I should have 50 models done, and be at the halfway point with another 75. And that should be all of my spearmen! So, no more time to waste! Let's get painting!
Here is a list of paints that I used:
- Rustoleum Black Primer
- Boltgun Metal
- Mechrite Red
- Knarloc Green
- Midnight Blue
- Thraka Green Wash
- Badab Black Wash
Once you get these seven steps done on your models, let them dry overnight. Next time, we'll add our highlights, drybrush the bases, and finish them off with a little flock on the bases.
