Welcome to the stage, the Goff Rocker! Today’s post is going to rock your socks off, with a behind-the-scenes look at how I put together this banging rock concert shot, some cool close-ups of our head-banging hero, and full paint recipes for this double denim dude.
This year’s Christmas model is this mega star the Goff Rocker. Games Workshop kindly sent me this model to check out early and he is sooo metal!1 You might be thinking this model isn’t very festive, but then that might be because you haven’t heard his Christmas song ‘Ere We Go’. Video at the bottom of this post.
As I was painting the Goff Rocker, I knew I wanted to create a cool shot of him rocking out so over a couple of days, I played around with my existing terrain collection and started to put something together. I quickly realized that ammo containers made great speaker stacks so I 3d printed some speaker parts to transform them. I wanted the stage to have height so I used my Ridgehauler and Trailer side by side for a huge rolling platform. The gantry is a promethium relay pipe with an Underworld’s Beastgrave skull added. Everything is stuck together with blu-tac (reusable putty).
I wanted to do something different with my Goff Rocker and my heavy metal phase was the 90s so I was inspired to do mine in jeans and a denim waistcoat. This got me thinking of a name for him and I came up with the Da Boss, Bruise Squigsteen.
He was a lot of fun to paint, check out my recipe card above to see what paints I used. Painting the Squig has got me thinking about a Gloomspite Gitz army now.
As I mentioned above here is Games Workshop’s Goff Rocker music video. It’s pretty cool, but the big question is will it make it to the number 1 spot in the music charts at Christmas. The Warhammer Community article has Apple Music and Spotify links.
1He’s actually plastic but you know what I mean.
