Anyway, round about when the Lord of the Rings films came out and GW brought out the game they made a deal with one of those weekly 'part works' magazines. Y'know the sort -
'Mad about Galleons in issue 1, £1.99* you will receive a small cannon for a marvellous scale reproduction of a galleon. Each issue will include all you will ever need to know about Galleons including schematics and historical pictures alongside a new component to create your own Galleon. * Subsequent issues RRP £5.99 'With 60 issues your Galleon works out costing £360, if you can be bothered to stick with it for that long, and you'd have been better off just nipping to the model shop to satisfy your Galleon needs. I digress, well the wife bought me the cheap introductory magazine that came with 12 Moria Goblins, 4 tiny pots of paint, a paintbrush and a single dice [cheap basta...]. This was before I got back into gaming and I think it was a joke that may have backfired on her since. I'd subsequently used the dice and brush but with an invitation to have a go on PeteBs Goblin Town I dug out the Moria Goblins with a plan to get them painted in time to take round [yes I know it's more procrastination from the Dark Angels].
So I glued them together, took about 15 minutes and I'll be basing them the next night before I prime them black but with a quick zenithal Red Oxide to hopefully add some weathering to metallic elements. Then I'll paint the bases, quick once over with the paints provided, Devlan Mud [or equivalent] wash, pick out the colours again for a bit of highlights and they should be done.
I'm hoping this will be quick job, but that's what I thought of my cultists. Anyway, I'll keep you updated.
