Finished the piked dragon head (ok not completely, varnish is still missing and the goblin carrier is still WIP, but I'm bored at work and wanna post something)

The other Mawbeasts are WIP too, so here you have a preview of how they will be positioned later, and a messy group shot.

I think I recognize that head! Looks awesome! Both that and the rest of those maws - I really like how you used that giant's head. Also, good to see that Halloween monster found its place :)

Okaaay, after some REALLY busy days, including 2 weddings, one of them my own, I have time to update. Those boys are finished some time now, but I didn't post them yet. So here you have 2 Regiments of Mawbeasts (KoW Squigs), that are just a bunch of random freaky creatures for the purpose of looking funny ;)

And for a moment I was wondering how are you going to place anything in contact with that unit, with that dragon head sticking in the front and what-not ;) A very cool and colorful unit, especially with that painted bear and that quite... disturbing squig xD

Thanks guys, as always your feedback is welcomed and appreciated :)

Here we go with something similar to my scratch ME - but more goblinish-stupid :D it's a count-as chariot regiment. My take on it: Goblin Circus Wagons

After taking the first pics I noticed that tentacles in general should not look dry. So I gloss coated them, and than I thought “ah, give em a small slimey touch.“
I took only one pic after that, but I think it shows what I mean ;)

@Theerteen Those are awesome - pleasing to the eye, very creative and comical! :D Your army really is shaping up to be a one of a kind piece of art.

It makes me wonder what you're going to add to this army next...

It's not shaping up, it's already a crazy one of a kind piece of art ;) It only keeps growing, dangerously enough!

The wagons turned out awesome! You used those dragon bits very creatively and the wagons themselves must have been tough to build, because of their size at least. The tentacles are also great - funny, yet intimidating and intimidating, yet funny! Especially for that one unlucky goblin! The whole piece also doubles as a really interesting diorama :)

As I am seeing you working on this wacky army, I want to ask - what do you think about Blood Bowl? The whole game doesn't treat itself seriously and the goblin team especially so - I think you may like it, but I don't know if you actually looked into it or not ;)

@Farmer7574 xD thank you. There are some fix projects set already, for example a doomdiver catapult (because I don't have to do any conversion work there, which is quite rare in this army project), an arachnarok, a giant, strongmen trolls/goblins, doomwheel artists... let's see what there also may come :)

@Borgnine thanks a lot man, this whole thing is a ton of work for most of it's units, but it's also a lot of fun, not at least for knowing there aren't much projects which did the same thing. Keeps me grinning whenever a new idea pops out :D
I have never considered blood bowl, simply because there were no other guys to play it with, but meanwhile I would easily find some I think - maybe when I finished my KoW Vanguard Warband, I might give it a try. Some friends have started Wild West Exodus, this looks like fun too, not at least for it's multiple pop culture reference troops, like star wars, Monthy Python, Alien, and so on ;)

We have started a new painting diary in my KoW Group, and I had a sicknote in the second week of january.. so I started and finished way too much at once, which was planned to paint over a longer time :tongue: Now I have to come up with new entries for the following months. Now I can post the 4 models I had in mind for the first three months (entries are 200p / month, with no transferring any point overflow to the next month:rolleyes: )

Mortarch No. 1 - (the guy I posted in the Deathly Chill Challenge), "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the wild" inspired paint scheme, I wanted it too remind at the Divine Beasts and the ancient armor set.

Mortarch No. 2 - I finished the skulls of this one before I was completely sure how I wanted the model to look, and so the whole paintjob was kinda improvised. But it turned out satisfiying in the end :)

Mounted Liche King (mounted knight of shrouds model) - I have 2 of these also, but while writing this I remembered that I forgot to take good pics and upload them :slapface:

Goblin War Trombone - A KoW Breath Attack, model is from Malifaux (Goblin Scrier), but I have no idea what it does there :D
The paint scheme is orientated at the Cologne Carnival Uniforms of "Blaue Funken" (Blue Sparks) , we have many different clubs here which are kind of official carnival societies, and I have two more models coming up with different, but similar looks ;)

You have two Arkhans?! A patient man, you are ;) Great work on them, that cloak is an especially cool idea! Nice knight of shrouds too, he looks pretty snazzy on that purple steed, the colors work surprisingly well like that ;)

Cool idea with those goblins too - is the crate a part of the original kit? It's good to see you incorporating some local customs into your minis - but I have to admit, I chuckled when I read about official carnival societies, that sounds very Cologne xD

Thanks buddy ;) Yeah I had some monster painting flash that day(s), and it's still not completely satisfied. As you can see in the Challenge, and there is an Arachnarok still waiting on the shelf. I hope to get to this one in the next 6 weeks (effectively 4 weeks, because we go on a late honeymoon trip in 2 weeks, viva la mexico! :cool:
The crate the Goblins stand on isn't part of the box, they're from the Gremlin Scrier Pack of Malifaux, which directly served my circus needs :) :D
