To me, these guys looked very similar to the Pathfinder Goblins, that I had painted back in 2014 to be Snow Goblins. So I thought I'd paint these the same way, to be Snow Goblin kids; and mount 2 to a base, then mix them in with the regular Snow Goblin force.
I prepped the figures in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them. I then glued the pair of figures to a white-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then placed them in my painting grip.
I then painted the teeth and the string on the left ones back with Americana "Light Antique White", the knife handles with Americana "Mississippi Mud", and the blades with Americana "Zinc". Around the back, I painted the pouch on the lefthand one with the Light Cinnamon". Then, when everything was dry, I gave the clothes and wepaons a wash with Citadel "Agrax Earthshade"wash. I was as careful as I could be not to let it run onto the blue skin, except I applied small amounts to the eye sockets and mouth.
Up next, I highlighted the collar on the left one with the base "Maple Sugar Tan", and the backpack, as well as the pouch on the righthand one, with Americana "Sable Brown". I then highlighted the collar on the right one with Folk Art "Barn Wood", the shirt with Americana "Jade Green" and the under-tunic with Crafter's Acrylic "Pure Pumpkin". I highlighted the knife handles with the base "Mississippi Mud", and then painted the blades with with Folk Art Metallics "Gunmetal Grey", and then highlighted them with Ceramcoat "Metallic Silver"
Lastly, I painted the base with Ceramcoat "Snow White".
I let them sit overnight, and the next morning I gave them a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. Later that afternoon I flocked their bases, using Woodland Scenics snow flocking. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed them with Testor's Dullcote".
