[Archive] Painting dags on hobgoblins?


For those who don’t know these are, these are the triangle patterns you often see on orcs/orks.  Like on the boots here:

I know for goblins people often do dags as well, plus checked patterns.  So I’ve been wondering what people think about dags on hobgoblins?

I don’t remember ever seeing any.


My Hobbo Spear Chukka features some dags: http://www.chaos-dwarfs.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=5236&page=5

IMO dags really fit the simple nature of greenskins!

Time of Madness:

Never seen dags on hobgoblins before. I’ve seen the checker pattern done before though.

This one is on coolminiornot I believe.

Dags would be easy to do and not out of character.


My initial reaction would be that dags are for Orcs/Orks only, but after having a think about it, I have changed my opinion to, “Dags would be fine on Hobgolins, as long as they are not over done”. This would also be true for checkers, stripes and all the standard fantasy adornments.
