AHPCV Comedic Bonus Round Entry

Here's a link to my latest entry in the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge V. The Comedic Bonus round.

There is some pretty witty stuff and some fantastic painting on display. Anne's Hokey Pokey tribe are the most visually stunning to me. Go check out the blog and vote for your favorites.

On to my pictures.

Considering how I did these in one sitting again on the day of, I'm happy with how they turned out. I think the layering on the clothing, where there is any, was the most successful part. These Bobby Jackson sculpts come from Rebel Minis, specifically their Darkhold Fantasy Goblin Villagers and Henchmen packs.

I thought the sculpts themselves, as well as the idea of goblin player characters was funny. C'mon the guy is picking his nose. Comedic gold!

The positive I'm am taking away from the challenge thus far is that I can crank out figures when I have to. Since I started back to painting it has felt like an endless slog on some figures, perhaps because I was painting too many at once for my ability. The downside thus far has been that I have been procrastinating too much and not giving myself enough time to work on technique and really make the figures shine. The bonus rounds feel more like a cynical point grab at this point rather than  a true showcase of my skill and imagination. But that's on me.

I've been holding on to this post because I wanted to give you all a few more shots of the figures, but I'll do that in another post or I may procrastinate too long.


  1. Those look brilliant, Sean. That nosepicker is classic! Well done and great job.


    1. Thanks Prufrock. I have some tax papers to get ready, but I hope to get some more pictures with a comparison to the GW figures soon.
