After I painted my first Goblin from the Goblin King Box by GW, Finarfin showed his colorful versions of the Goblins. This was an eye opener for me. Before that point I headed for darker and dirtier versions than those which could be seen in the movie. Personally I did not like the Games Workshop paint job as I found them to clean and to light. Finarfin showed the quality of the miniature design by simply adding Orc colors – and I mean Tolkien orc colors.
These four version were painted by me recently because Glorfunzel and me played a game of LotR SAGA with lists from Frank Becker. This is really a fun to play and so those miniatures came again in my mind.
