So last night I finished the painting on this goblin wolf rider, and I’m really rather pleased with it. The leather work on the wolf which was one of the main things that had stopped me painting this model for ages has worked (to my eye anyway).
I could however not get my head around how to paint the base last night, so I slept on it and … I still do not have a clue! The problem I have is that the base for him and his 2 mates are sculpted and to my eye don’t fit with the models
So on the bases there are some snakes a spider and a few dried bones, it makes me think of a Great Canyon sort of theme. But the models are wolves, which in my head speaks more northern forests, some what cold. And the fact that 2 of the goblins have fur hats sort of encourage this.
So any ideas? I don’t want to change the look of the wolves as I like them, so how to get the bases to work, make them dense forest look?
