Warhammer Fantasy Painting: Night Goblin Big Boss on Great Cave Squig

So here’s a fact: I like squigs.  I don’t know why but I can’t get enough squig units or squig related models.

After finishing my wyvern and liking the way his squiggy shield turned out I moved on to paint my Night Goblin Bigboss on a Great Cave Squig.

First off I love this model.  The posture of the gobbo looks like he’s barely holding on to his bounding mount and the squig is wonderfully expressive and full of personality.

I went classic on all the colors. The night goblin boss is wearing traditional black robed with a bit of blue edging.

I was pretty happy with the helmet too, as it’s clear it was looted from dwarfs.

But the squig is where it’s at in this model.

His massive teeth are incredibly fun to paint and I haven’t had a chance to paint real bone so clearly in previous models.

I was running low on 40mm bases so I repurposed one from a troll.  It worked pretty well as the pre-textured based made for nice cave environment.

Next week, the biggest Night Goblin boss with the greatest squig of them all (may he rest in peace…)
