Lord of the Rings - Goblin Town Goblins

I put my paint table to use on some goblin models from the Hobbit movie.  These are the Goblin Town models produced by GW.  GW continues to produce great looking models and these are no exception.  I acquired a good number of these models and will be painting them up as part of a Kings of War goblin army as well as troops for use with Dragon Rampant.

I primed these models with a white automotive primer and then inked the whole model with Baal Red from GW.

Next, I drybrushed the model white.  This gives them a vary pale reddish color.

Next I picked out the weapons with chainmail, the hair grey and painted the leather bits a brown color.  I washed the weapons with Nuln Oil and the leather and hair with agrax earthshade.  After all that was dry, I added a bit more red ink over the boils and then added a dot of white paint to make them look puss filled.

Finally, I applied some ballast to the base and painted it burnt umber and drybrushed it with a light tan.  I applied a small clump of brown grass to each base.

A very simple paint job, but I think these will look great on the tabletop.


  1. Nice. I need to pull my finger out and do mine, you make these look easy!

  2. I used a pretty straight forward process to paint these. Something anyone can do.

    I'd love to see a few pictures of yours when you get them painted.
