So, I'm in the process of painting a small 1k Goblin Army for a tourny at my local GWS.
Models to Paint:
44 Night Goblins
2 Night Goblin Netters
4 Night Goblin Fanatics
6 Forest Goblin Spider Riders.
1 Goblin Wolf Chariot
5 Night Goblin Squig hoppers.
2 Night Goblin Shamans
1 Goblin big boss on a Gigantic Spider.
Here is the first few I've done.

These two still need some touching up on the shields and spear and all the goblins skin needs to be highlighted with a Goblin Green/Sunburst Yellow 50-50 mix.
What doya guys think?
love the colour scheme sam (can i call you sam), It's good to see someone changing from the old black'n'green scheme.
I agree with what aeroplane said about the wash because aswell as shading it will also give your models more of a dirty gobbo feeling.
another thing on the metal, if you decide to give the model a brown or black wash (prefably brown) do a wash of green on the metal while the previouse is still drying and if you want to make the weopens and all that look really dirty put a few specks of salt on the washes while there still wet it then when its dry simply rub it off and you get a great effect.
Okay, first of all thank you both for your comments and advice, (and yes you can call me sam)
I must apologize for my late reply as I have been on holiday and without internet access (oh the horror!) but I did purchase the wash set from a GWshop whilst I was away and followed the advice given and they do look much much better so I thank you.
I will be posting up some more pics of the min's as I work on them.
the goblins looks really good, but good luck painting all that, my first army was orcs&goblins and there iss so much to paint, after about 4o models i totally lost interest but it might have something to do with my painting style (i paint one model at a time instead of 5-10)
but hopefully you wont give up like i did.
nice models so far though hopefully well see more soon.
It is loads of work to paint 'horde' armies in a decent amount of detail, As I used to play undead before I stopped around 6 or 7 years ago and attempting to paint them WAS too much (particularly as the army I wanted was around 2k points) Thus why this Army is gonna be set at around 1k (with maybe a few extra models as 'display' types.)
I tend to paint five models at a time whilst having the TV on and smoking breaks . If I get bored of Painting Gobbo's I tend to lend a hand to my two brothers Armies. So it allows me to stay somewhat motivated.
More Pictures will defiantly ensue, Ideally Tomorrow.
Nice choice to go blue instead of the normal black for the night goblins. compliments the green skin tone and I cant wait to see an army shot of that sea of blue.
Okay, as promised, Some Pics.
