So much fiend... We need a factory.

One Fiend Factory goblin, as promised.  (Shitty iphone pic.)



I went with classic DnD ocre skin, and took the oriental themes in the model into  account for colors- so this goblin pack should double as XP grinds for both oriental adventurers and western dungeon bashers alike.

The rest of the goblins will be dressed in all kinds of colored fabrics to help identify each in combat.  The skin, metals and green hair will tie them together a bit.

And since I was in FiendFactory mode here is more stuff...


Uh, Oh... Spongebob Squarepants is fucked!

The Angel of Hell, or as I like to call it- Evolved Squidworth.  This photo really doesn't do the glazing justice... The orange windsor and newton over white in the eyes really pops off the gaming table.

I have a lot of projects to get through, but it would be cute to redo this model with a modern eye from Rus' Original Fiend Folio art. (Anyone got a PDF?).  I realised halfway through that I could have asked him what colors he imagined this blighter... I am currently working with him on a private comission and have his email.  Doh!

I love FF stuff because it is kinda like a turd polish challenge... Plus I get to experience old school at its oldest.

  1. Lovely paintjob on the goblin. Definitely accents the oriental and old-school. Bravo.

  2. Yep, I know the feeling. My faves are the fantasy tribes Gnolls/Great goblins but painting them was...interesting! A very early Kev A ogre presented a similar challenge!

  3. Both of these look great, Delaney. Iphone pic or no, Squidworth's eyes still pop.

    When you say "it would be cute to redo this model with a modern eye", do you mean an entirely new sculpt? If so, this, by Paul Muller, might be of interest: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-fSseiNubJWo/UpwTpv4dViI/AAAAAAAAAdI/NWRD0IZnmhs/s1600/SAM_2384.JPG

  4. These are bloody wonderful! Evolved Squidward in particular! When you mention the Winsor and Newton ink, which ink in particular? A department store-style shop has just opened up near my house with a surprisingly big Arts and Crafts range, they had a big selection of W&N inks, but they were writing inks - I wondered whether I should give them a go. Thanks :) Cheers for the inspiration as usual!

    1. Yes the writing inks! Little square glass jars with round screw lids.

  5. Fantastic. I never knew the Fiend Folio devil was also a miniature. Great work!
