I am really loving the Tusked Raider, his face seems full of expression and so alive.

I think the Marksman proxy has alot of potential, but I see what you mean about being a bit too skinny, I really could not tell from the front though.

I have been quite slack in my painting of late, I should get a wriggle on.

Thanks Josh...its taken half a lifetime to get to this point (well, more like 20 years or so), so I've gotten better along the way I guess.

You should hear my boy quickly add up what he needs to hit in CC with all modifiers included...I am so proud!

OK I wasn't going to update this soon after my last update...but if you excuse my pride...I am super-excited how the marksman came out:







Had to dremel off the original hammer/axe and grind off the holy symbol in his hand.  Crossbow and bolt in right hand are from some warhammer bits I bought on eBay.  Had to drill through both hands, and had to pry open the xbow hand so the xbow would fit.  Cut off the feet and replaced them with feet from a Vulture Legion.  Quiver is from some Warlord weapons pack.  And thats about it!  The feet are a bit off-scale if you look closely at the original mini's legs, but it is hardly noticeable.   I really like how this mini's armor is very similar to other Vulture clan sculpts.  This guy is on deck to get painted after the myrmadon.

Had to add this pic...

Wow, that really is a good conversion.  It looks a whole lot better than I imagined it would.  Nice job!

Update time...

First off, the completed Goblin Myrmadon.  I dropped the purple "blankie" from the Myrmadon itself.  Integrated the purple into the goblin clothing.  The gray fur on the myrmadon is actually darker in person...camera and lighting is making it look lighter.  Extensive use of the Citadel washes on this guy...I'm really liking that stuff.















Next up, the completed Marksman.  Pretty happy with this guy. 







And a look at what I am churning out now.  18 (yes, 18) goblins:  9 swordmasters and 9 archers.  Its going to be tough trudging through these.  It's going to get monotonous ... but time is of the essence and these figures share a lot of the same colors in common.  I figured I'd save time by doing them all at once.

Great update.

Assembly line seems to work best.

Glad the washes are working for you. They seem to save a lot of time and effort with great results for me also.
