Smelven Smellementalist

I've got 3 out of the initial 10 Low Life minis painted now.  Here is my latest paintjob- Unctious Pwoof: Smelven Smellementalist.  Yeah, it's super weird!

Lots of little tiny details on this one too.  This is probably my least favorite one from the set as it's just so weird and has so many odd details that it's hard to tell what's going on.  I kept the colors fairly close to the official illustration albeit somewhat darker.

Heritage/Custom Cast Lesser Goblin With Bow

Here is possibly the oldest miniature I own, a "Lesser Goblin With Bow" sculpted by Duke Siefried, produced in 1975 by Heritage/Custom Cast in their Der Kriegspielers Fantastiques Lord of the Rings line.

I love the face on this little guy!  
I'm not sure if he once held an arrow or other item in his right hand.  I can't find a picture of this exact goblin anywhere. The Lost Minis Wiki page for this line of minis has pics of very similar Lesser Goblins with bows, but they are in a different pose.  If anyone has any insight into this let me know.  I considered adding an arrow of some kind to his hand but couldn't easily come up with one that scaled well with the figure and decided it didn't really need it.  Maybe he is smiling because the arrow he just fired hit a hobbit or something.

Here's how he looked before base and primer:

I got lots more stuff to paint, I just gotta find the time to do it.  Stay tuned.

Oofo Dementalist

Painted up another wacky Low Life Miniature.  This time it's Trozzgoxx the Lobe, Oofo Dementalist.

I'm pretty happy with this weird little guy.  His freckles might be a bit too subtle, making his body sort of plain.  I'm liking how the neon green in his eyes really stands out though.

Here he is with the Horc Limblopper from last post.  These are just really fun miniatures.
