Gobbapalooza Shroomancer

Hi all,
Here is my finished Shroomancer from the Gobbapalooza set.
This was originally intended to be part of a Golden Demon entry for this years competition but as I was asked to judge again it went on the back burner as I finished some army stuff.
The sculpt is by Seb Perbet and it's my favourite character from the set i think. I love everything that's going on in the scene. It's a mini diorama really with the goblin tripping out on shrooms and seeing his visions come to life!
I knew when I saw it that it would be great fun to paint. Not only because it's an awesome miniature but I knew I could throw a lot of colour onto it as well.
Choosing the colours to use was quite difficult really as the 'Eavy Metal version is pretty much spot on in terms of balance and colour choice. I wanted my version to be different however so I settled for a similar colour palette but tweaked some of the nuances to make it unique and my own.
The base was very fun to do, it was constructed mainly from thin slate and wood putty. This putty is great to use for bases, it dries fast and carves very easily. The little shrooms and critters on the base where especially fun to paint!
Hope you like!
Cheers! Daz


  1. A stunning paint job Daz...

    All the best. Aly

  2. Superb, Darren. Fantastic work. Such a cool model too.

  3. Wow - that’s amazing. If you don’t mind me asking (and not looking for a tutorial here), but what paints did you use for the yellow-green skin? It’s fantastic

  4. Really cool paint job! Great colours, reminiscent of the older schemes but with a modern twist on it. The eyes convey perfectly the narrative background for the model!

  5. So perfect. Do you have a secret technique for the skin ? Your green is very bright but not saturated. Do you had blue in your mix?
