Very powerful project indeed ! Your a great painter ! Can't wait to see more !
Unfortnately, I don't like the dragon's strike minis... Even if they are very well painted too, I don't like how they are sculpted, particulary the dragon wich looks like a chicken...
But once again, very good work ! Hail to you !

(only 9 more goblins to go!)

Thanks a lot! Why 9 more? 5 if anything. Anyway that is not a case, this was a single goblin I had to paint for someone.

Thanks for your compliment. I agree about the dragon strike minis. The dragon DOES look like a chicken! I'm glad someone else thinks that as well. The worst figures however would have to be its orcs. I dread the time when I'm gonna have to paint them.

10...? Not really sure now I think about it... I think I once went through all quests and counted what the highest amount of monsters you could encounter in a single quest were. I think some quests have 10 goblins.
Are there really only 6 goblins in the base set?

yep, only 6 goblins in the base set. I guess some quests must have more than 6 with the assumption that there won't be a commando-kamikaze player going about the board opening all the doors.

That Goblin is sharp, clean work with just the right amount of shading to be a Red Shirt and not show up a hero piece.

Lovely stuff.

You mean a lot of teeth? Yeah, I suppose they are, I wish there were fewer of them, easier to paint!

Anyway, just wanted to add the alchemist's bench, without the skull yet, hope you like the rest though!

Yup - they have certainly more than a normal human (32 if I remember correcly). Of course this is due to the casting method - a real skull has a "hollow" part between the teeth and the branches of the mandibule. It was probably impossible to cast this hole, so they filled it with extra teeth... :D
The alchmists bench looks awesome, by the way. Such minute details at this tiny scale!
Have a look ;)
