I think its funnier if the hat is tiny and perched on the head with a massive feather

OK, time for some more belated updates...

Goblin Merchant. Hat was already finished before I read any of the above suggestions, but they are much appreciated all the same.


Acrobatic goblin. In spite of the suggestion further up the thread, there was no way I was sculpting him nekkid. Not in that pose anyway... :blink:


Kobold Killer Turtle hunter. That makes five Kobolds now... How long ago did you ask for these, Mr. Brumby? I promise I'll work harder, honest. :whip:


Grey goblin. Having an experiment with pro-create putty... don't really like it. Seems to be tricky getting a new layer of fresh putty to adhere to whats already cured. Plus, different tackier consistency that I'm not really used to. If I persevere, I should pick up the knack of using it... But it's quite expensive & relatively hard to get hold of over here, so I don't see that happening.

Comments, criticisms, and sartorial suggestions always welcome

Gobbo fellas look top notch as always. Kobbold is very nicely done but I was really hoping you would make them look menacing and nasty rather than a different comedy take on them

A whole month, and only one kobold finished... :tumbleweed:
But at least a few more goblins are taking shape:

more on the corks, photos when I get the chance

Aargh, sorry Tom, your parcel with the last batch is still unopened and buried under crap from the pre-Crisis prep. I'll be back in the workshop tomorrow and will get to your stuff asap  :oops:

These are looking good, meanwhile....

Raz, redone.

A resculpt of Raz, my humble entry for Goblinaid t'other year. No word on what became of the original green, but I suspect that it did not survive the moldmaking process. The casts I received all had thier feet splayed out sideways, Charlie Chaplain style (not how he was sculpted), so I'm thinking the wire for the armature was not stiff enough.

Anyway, my sculpting has come on a bit since then, and if I do a new one then that will make the original that rarest of rarities, a limited edition that is actually limited.

And I used stronger wire this time.

Love it! Your goblins and kobolds are such great little characters - can't wait to get my hands on some castings to paint up! (^_^)

More agonizingly slow progress...

With Xmas round the corner, I cant guarantee getting much more done before January... But started a couple of new sculpts to keep myself going.
The first photo is the last work in progress shot form 1st November, started more than a month ago, but now just needs thumbs & a face. the other two are new sculpts, goblin housewife and a fungus farmer. Mr. Brumby says he wants some civilian goblins, so I'm toying with some ideas, barman, gamekeeper/poacher, jester, herald, postman, plumber, night watchgoblin...

@MartinWhitmore:
Any more of your groovy concept art would be very welcome. You still got my email?

I do! Things are a little rough around here at the moment, but I'd love to get you some new drawings... feel free to send me an email to give me a reminder that's in my inbox when I go to look - that makes it a lot more likely that I'll think to pull out my sketchbook in my downtime in the evenings! I love the new WIP sculpts, they're nicely dynamic. You get such a great sense of movement into such tiny sculpts! Can't wait to paint some...

Finally, more belated work in progress shots.

The number of times I've redone this ones head... Finally decided to cheat and just give him a big droopy hat.


Mussis Goblin is coming along, but why did I decide to have her holding a sprog? It looked like a good idea in my imagination, but soooo fiddly.


New sculpt for 2015, geriatric goblin. Suppose I should do some goblin children for him to shout at...

Some finished goblins, at last.

First up, we have Gripe, the goblin elder. "You young wippersnappers! Show some respect. I fought at the battle of five armies, you know... I was there when chieftan Bolg got strangled by a bear..." etc.


Next comes Ur, the layabout. Weaving unsteadily down the street, head full of fungus beer.


Lastly comes a fur-clad goblin, deep in philosophical contemplation. Some of the older hobbyists among you may recognize him, if not I will just have to sculpt him again.

And still on the work in progress shelf:

Zelda & sprog. Quite a few fiddly little details to go on this one. really sculpted myself into a corner a couple of times, but now she is nearly done...

Ok I'm late to the party but are these being sold? I would very much like a certain fur clad goblin for my very own!

Yes, later this year  :angel:

Brilliant work on all the new ones, including the IP-skirting fur clad fella :D

More progress... and a huge setback.

Picture #1 shows Zelda the goblin matriarch nearing completion. Picture #2 shows the hairline crack that formed when I was easing the sculpt off the cork. This runs from the right foot all the way up to the waist. The sculpt is not falling to pieces or anything,  but still this is going to have to be fixed before she can go for molding, which means re-sculpting most of the skirt. 

8:::  :blub: Knickersknickersknickersknickersknickersknickersknickers!!!!!!! :tantrum:

And after all the time I spent sculpting that baby goblin. I am feeling quite demoralized right now.  :grrr:

Wow, so much cool stuff in this thread! When I first saw these (Kev's Goblinaid and Fenris?!) I loved the character they ooze!

Can't you just simply fill the gap and smooth it out? From the pics it seems it's not that big of a crack... Crack, lol!  :angel:

OK, probably past time I posted some updates here...  :tumbleweed:

TWELVE OF THE CLOCK AND ALL'S WELL!!!!!!!!! Causing insomnia for the entire village, the goblin town crier.


Tavern goblins. Here we have Burt, proprietor of The Lazy Kobold, and Spilem, the serving gobbo of the same establishment.
