Last year for my birthday (November 2010) someone suggested Warhammer miniatures from Games Workshop. Since I've always loved fantasy, science fiction and anything geeky I thought "hmm...why not".. However the thought about tediously painting those small things for hours kinda put me off since I'm not the most patient person...*at all*! In the end I decided to give it a try since I thought patience is something that could learned... So for my 26'th year birthday my dear sister gave me the following box:
Needless to say this thing took my quite some time to finish, but in the end I was very surprised and very happy with the result! So guess Games Workshop did a good job with these starter sets:P I didn't take many pictures during the process back then, but here are still a few...
Assembled Goblin (2 piece - base and figure itself)
I elected one goblin as a leader and gave him a Bleached Bone cloak instead, followed by some dry brushed Knarlock Green (just to try out the technique)... Here's a closeup of the "Goblin Gandalf"
In the meantime I had also acquired some static grass which really helps make the bases come alive
Adding grass to the remaining group of goblins this is my final results as it still stands :D
