Miniatures in Tabletop quality from start to end - part 4: Painting Montero Guaca

Hi there,

welcome to the 4th part of my how to paint miniatures in tabletop quality guide. If you can´t remember check out the first three (basic steps: part 1 and part 2, first miniature: part 3 Eitu). Not every step will be described in detail as some of it is very redundant to the painting process of Eitu. 

Ok, today it is the goblin version of Indiana Jones (Montero Guaca) which we are going to paint. As the first articles were quite detailed we can speed up a bit in the beginning of this one. Main focus will be on the leather parts (which are quite a lot on this miniature) and some detail textures.

First we apply some basic colours starting off with the skin tone which is obviously green for a goblin. I chose a desaturated mid green and used some strong green as a not so thin wash for the first shadows.

Ok, not quite a good title for a blogpost. I know, but I need a start and this was the first thing coming into my mind and as this post has no specific topic it was the most obvious to take... easy...  Why is it so quite in this place lately you might ask yourself? Well, you know... it is because everyday life took it´s tribute... work and private stuff... and this and that... and... and... 

Bah! Humbug! Don´t start telling stories; nobody is interested in this bla bla of apologies! It was all about painting and hobby fun, building bases and applying colour to miniatures. Lately I spend a lot of time at the painting table to get my entries for the Bananalicious Contest ready. I indeed made progress but I´m still trying to get out of a thight spot as time is flying by. I have 14 days to go until the deadline is over. Therefore there was no time for writing blog posts at all, but this will change in the near future. After submitting my entries I´m able to show you my last piece I´m currently working on.
