Middle Earth Moria Goblin Drummer Boy - TO DONE!

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer on my Moria Goblins for #MESBG Adding a war drum to my warband means I can choose to move and extra 3" for any model within 12" of the drummer, so long as they don't charge in that turn. As Moria Goblins only move 5" and I've had a number of games recently where fast movement has been key I thought it was an upgrade worth taking. Otty gave me a war drum and I had a goblin with raised sword and missing shield. I cut a pit of sprue and whittled a bone drumstick out of it and glued the drum to where the shield would normally go. I glued the basing sand on and primed.

This took less than 24 hours start to finish and I love it to bits. I may regret not making the drum magnetic so I can swap it from model to model. It might be better to have it on a hero, or some other more pivotal or durable model, but it looked so cool. I love how the drum came out.

The simplicity of how I do these is so appealing, I wish I could be just as quick on other armies, maybe I'll be that way with my Death Guard...

It had to be finished for a game the following night, it was worth the effort as he did get to speed them up in at least one game. However, he speeds them up regardless, so if something does need to charge that's within 12" I can't sound the drums.
The drumskin though! A blob of Burnt Umber art acrylic allowed the varied texture and opacity. Then a few stray scuffs with bonewhite and he was done.

 I get a Great Big Big Build BLESSED VERDIGRIS Stamp of Approval for the build.

And a Great Big BLESSED VERDIGRIS Big Build Base Stamp of Approval for the basing!

And here's my Great Big BLESSED VERDIGRIS Minor Stamp of Approval for a little project!
