Madcap Shamans caper into battle, chanting and jabbering madly. These Moonclan wizards enhance their magical abilities by stuffing madcap mushrooms into their gobs, eyes crackling with power as they channel the Gloomspite to conjure unnatural darkness and deadly magical attacks.
The last of the Forgeworld Night Goblin Command Set is this Madcap Shaman. The magic smoke lifting him up is a great idea as it gives him some height on the battlefield, as does the moon shooting out of his mouth. It also helps to add some extra color to the miniature, showing him off as a spellcaster.
There's also some nice smaller details, like the mushroom falling out of his hand and the various trinkets scattered over the staff.
Volupus Pink is watered down and applied around the gums and face
Nuln Oil Gloss is added as a final step when the metal has been highlighted too brightly.
I added some cork for rock, then applied a mix of flocks, rocks, tufts, flowers and plants, grouped below by company:
Finally I painted the outside of the base.
I'm really happy with how the smoke came out. It's really vibrant and the transition from the blue to the yellow moon actually worked out well without turning green. Beyond that it's a fairly simple paint job but looks great.
