As many of you know, I've been busy painting my Otherworld Goblins. In this endeavour I've tried to stay as close to the source material as possible. Regarding goblins, the AD&D Monster Manual states:
“Goblins range from yellow through dull orange to brick red in skin color. Their eyes are reddish to lemon yellow. They dress in dark leather gear, and their garments tend towards dull, soiled-looking colors (brown drab, dirty gray, stained maroon).”
This was a tough decision as I've always considered goblins green in skin colour. I've bought most of the Otherworld humanoids and I want to make sure that each looks unique on the table (Hirst Arts prototypes forthcoming). Gygax noted that as the PCs make their way through levels they should face a corresponding monsterous humanoid: Kobold, Goblin, Orc, Hobgoblin, Gnoll, Bugbear, Ogre, Troll and so on. So they need to be individualized. This is easily done if one does a close reading of the MM.
So here are the final images of my goblins. I hope you like them. I will have pictures of my Shriekers and Violet Fungi up in a day or two, followed by some additional Gencon information.
You can click twice on the images for close-ups. Cheers.
