How to paint Moria GoblinsAfter I painted my first set of 24 goblins I had planned to post a tutorial on how I painted them. I never really got around to it until now. I haven’t done anything special, all the colours and the theme align closely with how Games Workshop paints theirs. I have been noticing that my blog gets a number of hits for “How to paint Moria Goblins,” So clearly people are still looking for a walkthrough, and hopefully this will be useful to you. There are a lot of pictures, I took a photo of every single stage, so this will be really pic heavy. If you feel I skipped over anything or just have questions feel free to drop them in the comments below.
With these goblins I decided to base them before I put the primer on, this is so I can dry brush them first, as when I do it last I always mess up the mini, and I really want to avoid that. So the first photo here has the mini primed and the base hase been drybrushed, but not cleaned up yet. In the second shot I have cleaned the mini up with black paint, ready to go. I next painted the eyes, a mixture of white and yellow, no exact ratio as I change it when I bulk paint so that only a few have the same eye colour. I have painted the eyes now as I wouldn’t be able to get into the helmet later without messing everything up.
