Games-Workshop's Snotling



First set of miniatures I painted for Warhammer Quest were the snotlings. I figured these guys were the easiest to begin with and am happy with the result. There were enough of them that I could try out some ideas. The most difficult was cutting them off their mini base and onto a proper GW base. I utilized drywall paste on the base and carved stones into when dry - which then I drybrushed several shades of grey from dark to light. Finished in April 2001.
