  1. well, it seems to have been not quite a year since my last post, and a bit longer since my last post to Show Off. In the meantime, Nissiana and I have purchased a house, which ate most of the Fall, Winter and Spring, and our Summer has been, per usual, filled with rehearsals and performances. Although I am currently imbroiled with a production of "The Three Musketeers," I've managed to unpack some paint kit and brought it to work. My recent lunch breaks have yielded a passel of kobolds and a pile of rats, both of which will likely lurk the basements of Sharn (or the waste drain of an alchemist's lab, in the case of that one rat) soon enough. Anyway, these are all to a very rough "look ma, I finished!" standard, mostly just to knock some rust off my brushes. Hope you enjoy. Penny bases will be blacked eventually.
  2. Hopefully quick question on painting non-traditional colored fire. Basically wanting to make sure I am on the right track here. I am currently painting up the kobold sorceror (the dude on the right) and have the idea of making the fireball in his hand blue (as if he is producing an electrical damage effect). In part, this is to create some additional color since he already has the torch on the left (which I am aiming for a more traditional orange-red flame effect). So the idea I had was to start by painting the whole flame white, then start layering with progressively darker shades of blue. Starting with a relatively light blue and working up to a darker blue by the tips (where it would be cooler). Does this sound about right? As for colors, my blues are somewhat limited still but for the first layer I was thinking either a Heather Blue, or the Arcane Blue by P3. The latter has a bit more green to it, but it brighter. Thoughts? As always, thanks in advance for any help! Edit to add: Forgot the picture! :P
  3. Pretty Kool Kobold Kommand. I had fun painting these.
  4. It occurred to me that I have many older completed miniatures in my collection that the good forumites of this board may not be familiar with, but bear special relevance to my time as an artist or to Reaper miniatures. This kobold Hero sculpt was clearly inspired by the Seins kobolds at Reaper, and he serves as a hero for my large kobold warband. It was the first humanoid sculpt I ever completed, circa 2009. It was painted in 2011. Necromancy . Edit: My Painting & sculpting vacation starts today! Yay!
  5. I've had these for many, many years. I am pretty sure they are reaper minis, but I can not find any reference to these particular kobolds when I search. They are very small, here is a scale pic next to a genestealer:
  6. These are a bit old, but they're my first reaper bones. I was working on a piece of apocolyptic style terrain and I realized these guys needed a home I believe I always used some of the 'modern warfare' weapons bits from Chronoscope but I'm not 100% sure. The gasmask is from a Tamiya military bits set. apologies for blurry bit - here's the group taking shelter in a local (ruined) cafe ^^ Mr. Gasmask - because you can never be too prepared, even if you're small! ^^ The fearless leader ^^ Sword and Board, well Hubcap, anyway ^^ because the sign means S T O P that's why ;) Tommygun! The rifleman So, maybe not my best work, but they were a lot of fun to paint and convert. And kobolds are just adorable =D
  7. When Bones 3 arrives, I'm thinking of assembling an army for Ma'aldrakar. Now, given that Ma'aldrakar represents Tiamat, the logical foot soldiers would be kobolds. Here's the problem - Reaper (and all other manufacturers I can find) only supply the Psuedo-doglike kobolds of 2e and before. I am much more a fan of 3e/Pathfinder's pygmy dragonborn/lizardmen. So, Reaper forumers, my question to you is this - do you know of anyone who makes 3e/Pathfinder style Kobolds?
  8. Yet Another Archer; A Kobold; A Tank; and some Fighter Plane Tokens The archer is another one to go with some of the previous bowmen. I hope to get a small painted unit of them by the time this is over. He is an old GW plastic. This guy just sorta got slopped with what ever color was left over after painting some of the other things. He was the use up the paint miniature. I think his legs are haldardier tabard red from last month's batch of halberd guys. Boots are kobold basecoat brown. The Kobold is a bonesium version, white plastic, 77010. I mixed faded purple with some lighter color —fire orange maybe— to get the brown for his basecoat. It did not cover the archer's shoes very well. Later he got drowned in brown liner. The tip of his spear is the same copper that was used to damp brush highlights onto the tank. The tank and the fighter tokens are 1:1200 scale resin models from Spartan Games. The basecoat on the tank is kolbold basecoat brown with a lot of brown liner mixed in because it wanted to dry out too soon. Later some pure brown liner got shoved into the deep places and kinda blended in. Then bronzey highlights. The airplane tokens are responsible for the archer's dingy blue tunic. First paint on them was Black Ink on the edges. Then they got a top coat of Sky Blue, avoiding the tops of the planes (archer got the left overs). Then the then planes got dabbed with metallic either silver or bronze. Then the edges got some silver to pick out the girder work. The final step was to wash them with Blue Liner. I was trying to get some edging and shadows under the planes. I needed to experiment on some of these. I have boat loads of these for the game they are from.

  9. I was quite inspired by the Kobold Sorcerer in this post. I had this one sitting on my desk, and I thought to myself, "What a great speed paint idea!" So, I set my timer, and set out to create my own Kobold Sorcerer. All in all, I think he came out pretty good for a 1 hour paint job. Granted, I have not completed the base, but as it stands, I think he would be perfectly fine for use on a table. What do you think? Special thanks to Muninn for the inspiration on the piece.

  10. Hey folks! Finally finished the last Kobold on the shelf of prep, and I tried a few new things on him, so in my opinion, he is the best of the Tribe that I have done. (It's Good to be The King!) He was finished up with wet blending and layering, so a large improvement over my older style of base coat, wash, mid tone, high light. He is also the first figure that I did work with my new Scale 75 Metallic golds, and new Raphael brushes, so tools and techniques changed in the painting of this guy. His scepter and crown were done with all 4 gold shades from the Metal 'N Alchemy Gold set, and they are something else! The orb in the scepter, and any gems were given 2 coats of water effect to spice them up. Forget who posted that trick on one of their minis, but thanks! Pics: His left eye is very strange, as far as I can tell, it is designed and sculpted that way. Not many images of this figure in any search I tried that showed that side of the fig... I tried to paint it as if it was enlarged and infected with some disease... So I used a deeper yellow than the norm, no pupil, and a couple of light light grey glazes to try and make it look cloudy / catarachted... Comments welcome! 8) George Now the Kobolds are talking back!!!! It's all Buglips' fault....
  11. I apologize sincerely for flooding the forum, but this is the last one, should be for a while. Ben Siens's Bones kobolds. My low-level monster parties are pretty much complete. Thanks for looking!
  12. This is from the Castle Ravenloft set from Wizards, my "Shelf of Shame" Kobold Sorceror. He only had the base painted, and the skin painted before I picked him up again.
  13. Hey, folks. Picked up some kobolds for the PF game I'm running, and I finally got them painted. These are the metal set of four, by Ben Siens, from the Dark Heaven line. I'm afraid my photos are letting me down even more than my painting skills. I haven't figured out my setup, yet. I was really proud of how I highlighted these guys with orange highlights--I'm still working to eschew the too-white highlights and all--but they're washing pretty well in these pictures. Everything I'm trying lately tends to be either too light or too dark. Hopefully some of it's getting through, though. Thanks for looking. Comments and criticism are very welcome. I've got some Bones kobolds still to paint, so any tips however specific would be most helpful.
  14. After I paingted my Kobolds, I thould I should start with this highness. I was little disappointed, he is sooo much bigger than the other kobolds. He should be smaller, too! I painted the main colors on him in the last few weeks. If I had to much paint, I put something on him if I thought he should get it. Few error correction are still needed and I think he had some rough ecounters with hard objects, because some paint is missing on the back. 03295: Snar Mangebelly, Kobold King
