This was done over the space of a weekend, including the GS work. I am quite pleased, though the base needs weighting at the front and the pictures don't do him justice [might try for better ones. Though white with a white background.. makes for difficult editing. ]
He started off as the Night Goblin shaman, I chopped off his staff just under the head dress stuff and I removed his weapon in the other hand. Using my limited GS skills [not entirely happy with the sack or the stick of 'candy' in his hands], I added the following; beard, fur trimmings around his sleeves and hood, a ball at the top of his hood, the bag and his cane.
I could have done better with the hat, it's a bit lumpy in places and might have been better to have removed the twin moon icon. The cane of 'candy' could have been smoother, as the bag could have been. But in my defence I'm still learning, practice makes perfect.
His base is made from cork, done for another mini in fact, and was painting in various shades of grey. I added Ghostly Grey to give it a more blue edge to it to fit with the cold look. The show is Bicarbonate of Soda [not baking powder], mixed with PVA glue, then when it was drying I sprinkled on some more Bicarbonate of Soda to give it a nice sparkling look.
All that needs doing is weighting his base and varnishing him tomorrow.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Merry Christmas to you too, Kuffy! I like him alot, the only thing that im not too keen on, is the cork base. Its really blocky, and im not a huge fan of the color either, but hey i still like him....i didnt know that orks had facial hair

The base was just something I had from another project lying about, it worked and the colour is because I wanted it to seem cold to match the snow as such.
Merry Christmas to you too mate
PS. Are you thieving my base ideas? :tongue:

Awseome, i like him alot. You need to do a santa's little helpers themed goblin army to go along with him :yes:

Ah, but a dwarf Santa would be less funny than a goblin one. I could have done one but the goblin was sat on the desk and I figured why not? I think people are not into doing random mini's most the time, I'll paint whatever comes to mind - and different stuff.
That's probably why my armies are still in boxes...
