IÂ submit this little vignette as confirmationÂ that I completed another dozen Bones.Â “Dungeon Attack” goblins, this time; compadres of the kobolds I knocked outÂ last week.
Following Chris Palmer’s lead, I eschewed green and soughtÂ guidance fromÂ myÂ venerable 1/e AD&DÂ Monster Manual: “Goblins range from yellow through dull orange to brick red in their skin color.” Chris choseÂ orange, so I bit for yellow.
I used a limited palette of midnight blue for the clothes, yellow skin, brick red for the Hittite hats, and gold for the weaponry. (For some reason, all my bad guys wield gold, while the good guys prefer silver…). So, when they all showed up for a skirmish in my gothic dungeon, they were particularly irascible becauseÂ they had all worn the same dress. Oh, well… at least one can seeÂ they’re all on the same team.
I’ll also make mention that I’ve gone almost entirely over to craft paints now. I have a post percolating concerning my evolution as a mediocre painter. The short version is that I used to be a so-so painter usingÂ expensive paints, now I’m a comme ci comme Ã§aÂ painter using paint I buy at Walmart.
