It ain't easy being Green

This old classic was one of the first figures we tried 'hiding' the broccoli bases back in the day, around 2003.  Until then, we didn't know that you could do that, or saw it off that base and pin it to a new one.  It was quite the revelation so long ago.

I used this figure are part of the "Painting Orc and Goblin skin colors" video.  It was a great opportunity to show how to get a lot of variety in those greens, but also incorporating contrasting colors, like purples, etc.

I had a lot of fun making interesting bases for these... at some point I will have to see if I can scare up any pictures of those old trolls that we painted 12-13 years ago!

  1. Just wanted to say you are one of my favorite painters partly because you're very good :) but equally because you so often use the bones line of mini's and show that they can be painted up beautifully - as well as metals dare i say!

    Would love to see you paint up some of the larger bones models!

    1. Thanks! I have been trying to show that painting these is not a waste of time :-) There will be a few fudged areas to deal with, but unbreakable minis that are cheap can be quite beneficial! :-)
