Goblinaid Snorklings

The title will be familiar to most of the readers here. In case it does not ring any bell, The Goblinaid event was set up in order to collect funds for mighty artist Kev Adams after he was attacked. Won't get into morbid details, that was long time ago. Enough to say I participated getting myself a pack of lovely Snorklings.

Besides, thanks to this hobby I've been blessed with amazingly kind people from distant places who share this same passion and are so gentle to give away items with a smile. One of them, Cheetor from Sho3box, sent me another bunch of tiny Greenskins (thank you, pal!). Here you have all of them:

Love this set wholeheartedly
Hangover vs. party hard
The only ones I got repeated. Anyway, aren't they lovely?
I find these slightly disturbing. Never pictured these as... mammals?
Grog for da greenies!
This one was supposed to be hanging from somewhere, but had no proper place
Finally I added this GW Snotling that happened to appear in my bitbox out of nowhere
You may be missing one mini in this band... Yup, the Goblinaid kit came along with a Kev Adams self portrait 28mm scale. I'm saving him for another totally different bunch. You'll see in time (I still have to buy the rest of the minis!), but you can figure out he will be playing a role as a civilian in my sci-fi settings ;)

  1. Great job suber , those are really characterful and I love how you added white bellies to give a somehow amphibian look.
    I've painted a couple of those to go in my Space orks warband for RT and they are really fun to paint, models like these take no time and are really great to boost one's morale as you can finish them quickly.
    Can't wait to see your version of the Goblin master himself !

  3. These are great. The models are so much fun, the shouting females are amusing like a 1970s sitcom :)

    2. Oh, my pile of shame. You know that more scientific endeavours prevent me from tackling it. :(

  10. feast for my eyes, i especially love what you did with the tips of their noses - it brought the memories of my own good ol' Warmaster goblins.
    i've just discovered your blog (courtesy of neighboring Oldhammer 40k) and i'm really looking forward to browsing through the rest of your work.
    until next time :)
