    That base for the Terrorgheist turned out really good, very immersive, feels like some sort of plighted wasteland on the edge of the world - and on the photos it looks kinda like a sunset, so it strengtens the effect, very nice! ;) Good for you for getting those cabinets (many miniature player seem to own them ;) ) - and I hope they are fixed to the wall ;)

    @Theerteen Awesome Terrorgheist! The dark blue & bone colour scheme looks great alongside that basing.

    Good job getting a cabinet too, minis should never have to be thrown back into boxes after being completed!

    Thanks Gents, I'm happy how it turned out in the end.

    A reason why I didn't participate in the last challenge(s), after collecting and (partly annoyed) thinking, brainstorming and purchasing, I have started my Kings of war Gobbo Circus (working title). One of the hardest things to figure out was, how to use the inflexible Bad Moon Gobs I already owned. Spears and Bows, and additionally 20 spider riders, and some other stuff, that I
    a) have to convert to KoW units (easy in most cases, but the Arachnarok f.e. is possible only as Slasher prox)
    b) have to put them in circus style. Not.Easy.

    But I think I developed some cool ideas (with help of my fiancee and some friends), so here are the WIPs of the spear gobs, aka Rid Jugglers ;)

    I have a hard time imagining how they would attack ;) Still, crazy idea, keep it up ;)

    One-step-before-the-finish-pics. But I messed up the correct measurements of the bases -__- I wanted to go for a KoW Legion, and thought that would just be 3 Regiments next to each other. It's not :thumbsdown: so now I either have to add 2 troop bases (which I can't field solely, because goblin spear boys don't have troops AND I don't have models left), or have to cut one regiment in half, which is relatively f**** . up.

    Anyway, have some pics of -almost- completed sharpstick/juggler gobbos (one leader is still missing as you can see)

    @Theerteen Goblin circus army commences, I'm tuned in to this one :)

    The colourful gobbos! The shield design is cool and I love what you've done with their weapons, really creative :)

    Probably much more effective than strongly worded letters that are being sent in modern politics ;)

    Being used to all the darkness our usual undead entail, those colorful guys made me almost blind! They are awesome ;) Painting all those spiral made you probably dizzy xD Blue and yellow was a great choice for them, they look really striking. As for your problems - I would vote for sawing one of the regiments in half - sounds manageable ;) but I don't understand what do you mean by 'troop bases' so maybe my decision process is flawed...

    Thanks mates :) Happy how they turned out. But painting 37 models the same style can, as you all now, be annoying, so I'm glad they're finished now. Sawed and rearranged.

    @Borgnine That's the unit type of KoW, they're going from Troop (100x40 mm), Regiment (100x80 mm), Horde (200x80 mm) and Legion (200x120 mm). Goblin Sharpsticks (spears) start at Regiment, so it wouldn't make sense to build a troop base ;)

    You insane madman...





    Yet, this is crazy awesome! Even coming up with an idea like that requires some weird imagination - and actually executing it, even more ;) It's great that you did them, the world is now a richer place xD I love how colorful they are all, how different each one is, yet every one is interesting and adds to the unit. My favourite is definitely the one with the clown face on the abdomen, after that, probably the one playing the drums ;)

    Also congrats on converting those boring spiders into such interesting poses - I remember that as a tedious nightmare...

    A spider. Wearing a top hat. Riding a unicycle?

    Close the forum, I think you've won :bowdown:

    :lol::lol: Thanks a lot guys :bowdown: indeed they were a crazy friggin annoying converting/rearranging job, but I think it was totally worth it. Aaaaand there will be more of them ;) next time including a ring of fire (feel free to sing along) and...more spiders! Other units to come: Circus Wagons as chariots, a fair amount of different animals as Mawbeasts (KoW equivalent for squigs), an arachnarok spider, a bearded troll lady, and so much morexD

    I seriously hope that Arachnarok will have a whole circus tent on top of it ;)

    We're way too similar in our ideas xD my plan was to put one of the 4 circus wagons on top of it ;)

    A quick question, do you see all 7 pics of the spiders or are there image spaceholders? When I posted them, the pics were all visible, but now I just see only 3 pics and 4 /img texts
