Goblins of the Carribeans

Article publié le vendredi 16 février 2007 par Cédric, Denis

The scenic bases Sea shells and crabs decorate our goblin pirates. Without a doubt : they’re stranded on a beach in the middle of wrecked boats of various ages.

Each base was made using the same principle :

  • the relief is made with Milliput ;
  • different debris cut from a plank of 2mm thick balsa are glued on the still "wet" milliput (the nails are of Green Stuff) ;
  • the ground is textured with PVA glue and very fine sand ;
  • the bases are primed with Chaos Black then with Skull White.

To paint the sand, the colors are the same used during the figostage of Nantes :

  • base color using Snakebite Leather GW + Sand Yellow P916 ;
  • highlighted with pure Sand Yellow ;
  • then with Sand Light P837 ;
  • and finally some Skull White.

Once the sand painted, the sides of the base can be repainted Chaos Black.

For the old wood, I did the following :

  • base color using Green-grey P886 ;
  • glaze of German fieldgrey WWII P830 ;
  • grain in German fieldgrey WWII + Leather brown P871 ;
  • highlights with Sand Light.

And here is the recipe for the rusted metals :

  • Dirty Leather (Rackam Color) ;
  • Dark Grey P994 ;
  • Orange brown P981 ; this last colors spills over the wood to simulate the flow of rust.

And that’s it !
