I mentioned that I’ve been working on some snotlings lately. Sadly I have only made very little progress and only one base is finished so far. These vintage 80’s snotlings are such a joy to work with. I really like the zany chaps who clearly carry the hallmark of Kevin Adams. But I was surprised how much work they seem to demand. I thought these mostly quite simple models would be a fast paint job and to a certain extent they are, but they still take far longer to finish than expected. This also explains my slow progress on the three remaining bases.
The next three bases also have the stepped base you see here. Normally I’m not particularly fond of ‘high’ bases elevating the model, but in this case I wanted to give a better view on the individual snotling. Overall I’m quite pleased with the result, although I still debate myself if I should give their lower lip the traditional purple colour or not. Perhaps I’ll just add it on some of them.
My favorite mini in this chaotic lot is the ‘shaman’ with the dirty red hat holding a skull staff in one hand of clutching his fist on the other hand in concentration. He’s a really fine piece full of character and imagination.
