The dwarfs of BfSP are relatively 'terrible', but not so the goblins. Very decent paint job.
I actually quite enjoyed painting the Dwarf. You get to work with all these bright, noble colours, you have these clear lines and such. But I have to agree; the Dwarfs don't look too good. Another problem is that they just don't look like the other GW Dwarfs. Anyway, I think that you can include the miners into your Dwarf army without trouble. They aren't that bad.
I've just taken a commission to doa BFSP by the end of Jan. SHould be a diddle.
Hehe, have fun then. I just put the first layer of drybrushing on 30 Night Gobbo robes. I'm really looking forward to my next comission though: a mounted Lord of Nurgle converted to hold a coffeepot instead of the scythe. This will be a very welcome change from this rather uncreative painting of 100+ miniatures.
nice seeing you back in painting action. been very lazy myself in terms of painting lately...
joined the TO40kP to finish the XII Adorian Army Korps, Imperial Guard,
now with extra regular updates and fries!
One month has passed and I'm only posting a minor update. Basically, I did a bit of work on 30 more gobbos (two "layers" of drybrushing on the robes) as well as I've got about 60% (they still needblacklining, their beards and the golden parts painted as well as a few finishing touch-ups) of the first dwarf clan warriors done, let's see what I can finish this night.
Day XX: - Update time!
Yes, it is I. Still painting these 100+ miniatures from the BFSP box, still not done yet but I proceeded in the christmas holidays. Got not much time these days and I don't think that I need to explain much. Anyway, on to the piccies:
Dwarf Characters back
Night Goblins Archers
Assorted Night Goblin backsides (feat. invisible highlights)
So, that's it for now. I'm in a hurry right now so I'll maybe add something later. Let's see.

I must say you paint to a pretty high standard. Also your pictures really portray as too how much you get in that box, you have almost tempted me too buy one, but I already have too many things on my plate.
Well I wish you good luck, and from what I have read so far I believe you will make your deadline.

McMullet's avatar has poorly hands and so few postings will be written and they may be a little terse.
HIgh standard indeed. Yes, the miners look good, and was one of the main reason I bought it (amongst others).
Thanks for all the positive response. I hope to find enough time to paint as these days are quite stressfull (end of semester and all).
@-Mysterius: I have a deadline? This box really is quite a bargain, but only if you play one of those two armies of course. I also contains quite a bit of terrain and objective markers (apart from the templates, rulebook, etc of course). Still, if people are asking the old question wether they should get the rulebook or BfSP, I'd still tell them to get the rulebook. If you're afraid of getting too eager to buy this box, just think of 60 quasi-singlepose Night Goblins to paint.
@Paulus:The slayers were the most fun to paint yet. Apart from that, I'm dreading the 20 Gobbos I still have to paint (characters/Troll/warmachines are much more fun of course) and of course all the basing afterwards. But yes, I'm preserving it, being in the state of love/hate at the moment, entering the "pure hate" phase in about 2 months at the latest.
very good standard, nice smooth painting. *thumbs up*
I got to that exact same point with the Night Gobbo's Sigur.
The entire contents of the box set is staring at me unpainted from a shelf as we speak with the exception of 16 spearmen & the warboss. I have 4 left to finish in the unit & have got to get myself to do them.
My plan was to alternate between Goblin & Dwarf units, rewarding myself with a character/war machine/Troll to paint between each.
I allowed myself to be dragged into starting my Lizardmen army though - It's good to see that you are clearly more patient thant I am, lol!
they are all excellent, very very well painted and so many! i love the goblin skin it's really good.
nice work Sigur
Very nice work here Sigur. I especially like the blues on the dwarves, there's something about it that seems pleasing to the eyes. The Goblins look nice too. Keep it up Sigur, there's still a fair few models left to paint.
I'm Just One Confused Guy In A Sea Of Insanity
Yeah, I had planned that too, but you know how these things work out: In the end you just do what you're currently in the mood for and in my case, that's the Dwarfs most of the time. They have cleaner lines, brighter colours, fleshy skin, sharp details and such. You know, things that are fun to paint. Highlighting lots of black robes just isn't.My plan was to alternate between Goblin & Dwarf units, rewarding myself with a character/war machine/Troll to paint between each.
@schoolcormorant: Thanks. I afraid that the gobbo skin came out a bit too dark.
@The Wandering Ancient: Thanks, how could I forget about the minis I still have to paint.
they look great, i take it for the gobbos yu used several very dark layers of grey dry brushed on, and im looking to emulate that...
im kinda not looking forward to the 200 of these i have to paint...
but before that i have to remove all the mould lines
You're right. A few layers of very light drybrushs with dark greys, followed by a drybrush/some classic highlighting (layering) with a brighter grey and a black wash to finish it. I also painted some pure chaos black into a few recesses and deeper areas later on after I noticed that the black wash made the robes look quite grey overall. Turn it into a project log, I suggest an update it every month or so.
Having to paint 200+ Gobbos.....not a very pleasant prospect.
Having to remove the mold lines from 200+ Gobbos PLUS the certainity that you have to paint them afterwards.....that's how I imagine purgatory.
yeah well.. im stupid like that....
what did you do for the red?
several layers of blood red, or did you build it up?
