Goblins with spears (WQ)

More Night Goblins finished - this time, 6 with spears.  I'm focusing on recreating the original monsters that came in that beloved box set from 1995, before I get carried away buying anything big or building 3D dungeon sections...  I'm really pleased with how the colour scheme came out on these:

Goblin netters (WQ)

Having devoted all my wargaming attentions to Force on Force recently, it's been a couple of months since I painted a 28mm scale figure.  Two years back I GMed a short Warhammer Quest campaign with my best mates out of nostalgia .  Unfortunately it petered-out due to time constraints & the difficulties of getting everyone together regularly, but for a long while I've fancied putting together a 3D dungeon for this gem of a game.  Before I get too involved with that I thought I should paint up some figures to test my resolve...

So I've been painting up some Night Goblins from the Warhammer sprues that had been stored in the attic.  First up, here are 3 Goblin netters:

The black-&-purple colour scheme looks more interesting on the Gobs with spears (coming soon).  I decided to go with a gloss finish on the cloaks as it gives that nice rich black tone:

Middle East buildings 6 (FoF)

I've completed a second semi-detached house.  This will probably be the last 15mm-scale building with interior detail that I do for a while.  Due to the extra time it takes to construct & paint internal stuff, & the fact that it's not really needed in the Force on Force rules (& flat Middle Eastern roofs are handy for miniature placement!), I'll be bulking-up my collection with some simpler single-piece buildings.

Below are views of the 1st floor & ground floor:

Middle East buildings 5 (FoF)

I finished this grubby semi-detached house today.  It's intended for arid urban settings.  I'm not entirely happy with the shed roof - Ideally I'd like to finish it off as corrugated metal if I can find some cardboard with small enough internal grooves.  Otherwise I might do a tile effect like on my 'Lebanese' garage.

The 1st floor & ground floor are shown below:

Middle East buildings 4 (FoF)

I've just finished painting another desert-themed building.  This one represents a community hall or perhaps a venue for a covered bazaar.

Below you can see the 1st floor & ground floor. Nothing too exciting - this one is open-plan:

Middle East buildings 3 (FoF)

Another Force on Force desert building finally completed!  I've started using cocktail stick 'pins' to make these foamboard buildings extra-sturdy.  These were particularly important on the support sections that protrude at the front of the building.  I'm trying not to make my buildings too specific, especially given the small scale, but I see this one as a restaurant, or perhaps shop, with two apartments above.

 Here's the 1st floor & ground floor of the building:
