    Maledrakh's Kobolds 77010 & 77350

    A whole year and almost no Bones painted. How did that happen? There are still 20 Bones left to paint and the fourth kickstarter is still on track for delivery around next Easter! I have had these kobolds ready to paint since I received the first Bones several years ago. They were part of the Vampire base pledge box, in a subset called "Dungeon Attack" with some giant rats and goblins. I painted the rats ages ago and the goblins are...lets call it awaiting paint. Four sets of three Kobolds, I did each set in a different colour. Funny how I remember Kobolds as doglike small humanoids from my AD&D days, but it seems they are reptilian dragonlike small humanoids now? What happened there? Seeing as they are so small, I based them on bespoke 3D-printed 20mm lipped rounds. And from the Bones II kickstarter, the "matching" Kobold Leaders: ...that are much larger than the others: so I based these on bespoke 3D-printed 25mm lipped rounds to fit the larger minis. The Kobold fighter champion had a soft noodle weapon haft that no amount of hot water would straighten out, so I cut it off and replaced it with a part of a paperclip.
  2. Thanks for taking a look! Any advice/comments/criticism is welcome! Hi all, I've recently started painting some of my minis (finally) and also got some friends to help. Below I'll show everything thats been done so far, before likely making a showoff thread for the done done ones (some are aaalmost there, need a few more touches. My Work: (2nd mini ever): 77503 Temple Dragon : - I wanted to do some complimentary color on him but couldn't quite decide where. First thought was underbelly and underside of wings, but glued together the underbelly is incredibly hard to paint. I was also considering the larger left and right spines down the middle and/or maybe just the bones/claws that extend from the wings(bone color?) He seems to photograph better than he looks in standard light, hes a bit dark, so without lighting for taking a picture distinguishing much on him is not all that easy. 77506 Kobolds (6): (3rd mini ever) I am trying to somewhat emulate the Kobolds painted on the Bones 4 page ( https://www.reapermini.com/bones4 ) Just starting on them, got a darker skin tone and tried dry brushing over with a lighter, but its hard to keep it localized on such a tiny mini. Painting these seems like it's going to get more frustrating than it is rewarding.. :/ Trying to do linen white for the cloth with maybe a sepia wash over it, then steel for the armor with a black wash Friend 1's WIPs: (He's painted minis before) 77492 Behir: I think he's planning on touching up the mouth area 77494 Dire Bear: I think he wants to differentiate the fur a little more, it's a bit too uniform 77496 Eilluvasheth, Succubus Queen - Wings look great - I think he's not sure how exactly to translate the color scheme/design to the body Friend 2's (new to painting, first minis): Adventurescapes Barrels and Chest: 77382: Vernone, Ivy Crown Knight (Second Mini) 77498 Werearmadillo (3rd mini) Friend 3: (has painted some in past) 80046: Gray Alien Warriors 77493 Brain In a Jar : Needs to paint the bottom clear plastic piece the same metal as the rest of it Thanks for taking a look! Any advice/comments/criticism is welcome! Ignore these -- Too many attachments, can't seem to figure out which ones to delete

    77010 Kobold Troublemakers

    Here are some more Reaper Bones baddies. I made these guys for my Dungeons and Dragons campaign. I'm betting the numbers on the bases already gave that away though Just about everything I make is for gaming so I have to fight off the temptation of putting too much time into each model.
  4. Kobolds! Who doesn't love the cute little guys? So these guys were a really quick paint job for my ongoing Pathfinder campaign, and I know what you're thinking. "Gargs, that sorceror is purple!" True, he is, but that's he is described in the module. :) Anyway, for a quick paint job at my relatively newbie level, I'm actually pretty happy with these guys. In retrospect, I probably should have chosen a different color for the shirt on the sorceror, but honestly, wasn't sure what would contrast well with his dark skin. Any thoughts for future reference? Eventually, I may go back and add some OSL to the sorceror as well, but trying to tackle two different flame effects was definitely a bit intimidating to me and I wanted to get them done in time for game day. Biggest fear I had was trying to figure out the color of the OSL effect given that the flames are made up of multiple colors themselves. Anyway, as always any comments, critiques, advice, etc. are always appreciated! Thanks for looking!

    77010: Kobolds (6)

    Here's some love for the little guys, because it isn't all about the big bads. A gang of nasty, orangey kobolds! -E.E.

    02470 Kobold Raiders

    I bought these some 12 years back, and only just now realized they were mispacked. I have a duplicate, as you can see, but one of those "stabber and board" guys should presumably be the kobold with a spear shown in the store picture. Just noting that they came that way in the pack, and it's not just a random batch I pulled out of The Drawer of Horrors. A kobold is a kobold, and I'll need some... *counts* 5 more packs of these, so I imagine some spear dudes will appear there. I'm especially fond of the big one, who definitely lifts.
  7. A quick paint and my first real basing experience. I used green stuff and a Happy Seppuku stamp. I am happy with how they turned out and I learned a lot in the process. The kobolds are nothing special, just cannon fodder for some pesky adventurers.

    Kobolds from Reaper (Quickpaint)

    These little guys were my first test at table top quick paints. I plan to use them for a game this weekend, and needed to get several done fast. I think I have right at 3 hours in them, not including the priming. I was considering basing them, but I decided not to, just painted the base they were on. I posted the beginnings of them, and a completed group shot in the WIP forum. Here are the singles. Sorry for the bad pictures, as my camera was stolen. I am currently back to using my iphone, and I don't quite have it down. Overall, these little guys were a basecoat, minor highlights, and washes. I was going for a little better than the normal prepaints. I am happy with how they came out. CAH

    Finally, my first attempt! (Pic Heavy)

    Finally, I started working on painting my first miniature! I've tried starting since the Bones 3 Kickstarter, and I want to thank everyone for their encouragement. Let's see what I've done so far. Wilson and Optimus!!!!!!!!!!!!!: My sacrificial constructs, I learned a lot from these little things. I primed WIlson with Krylon Black Matte Paint+Primer and Optimus with Plaid Clear Matte Acrylic Sealer, both painted with FolkArt acrylic paints and a size 0 Daler Rowney nylon brush. I learned a lot from them like some brush techniques and the importance of watering down thicker paints. Now, my first Kobold figure: I used the same black primer on this one. Had to strip it once because I sprayed it on a little too thick. Lesson learned. First shot at painting: Finally slopped paint on my first miniature. I painted this with Citadel Mephiston Red and a 00 Winsor & Newton synthetic brush. I would have used a sable or sable/synthetic brush but because of Russia things, the hobby store I went to wasn't able to restock. Poopy. I learned to control how much paint should be on the brush and how my brush strokes affect where the paint gets applied. I deliberately chose a small figure instead of a standard size one purely to force myself to learn control and painting techniques that will help me with larger ones. Now I need to decide if I should try lighter on the skin and if I should drybrush the new layer on, or if I should start painting the armor and accessories. Well, here goes nothing.

    3e/Pathfinder Kobolds?

    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?
  12. Just watched a 6 minute tutorial where the painter used an airbrush to paint the bones kobold pack. It is a Tabletop paint job, but there is some stuff here for beginners with an airbrush to see how one can be used in doing minis... George

    77010: Kobolds Speed paints

    Well I got back from my second week of vacation in August, and realized I only had week and a day to get my quota done for the Resolutionary Painting Challenge for this month! A quick Sunday night dig through my drawers of Bones and I found some Kobolds to speed paint. These 9 were painted in maybe 4 hours over 5 lunch hours last week. Just base coats and a few details. Then brought home and Quickshaded. I then sprayed the first 3 with anti-shine, which frosted (due to the humidity I assume). So they were coated with a gloss brush on to try to save them. It brought them back some but they are still a little frosty in a few places...oh well, these are for table top ... They were then all coated with a brush on matt sealer. I may give them a bit more attention with the matt sealer tomorrow evening, but its almost 1 am here, so good enough for tonight...

    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!

    SDE Kobolds - Spearmen and Flingers

    These guys were actually a lot of fun to paint up. With the new version of the game out I am very excited to get painting all the rest of the core box and move on to the forgotten king and all the heroes. Looking forward to the single player mode as I seem to have a few issues finding players around here. Enjoy the pics and if you have any advice on anything let me know. Thanks!
  18. I got a new vampire box of bones, from the friend who talked me into buying one in the first place. So now I get to repaint all the minis I painted when I was just starting. is now This guy is a repost, now with gold bracers. He is from mice and mystics board game (I only bought the figures) and has gone from hero to villain In my campaign he is known as "The Lord of Cats" This figure will shortly serve as a Dire Lion, so I wanted to paint him as cat like as possible. Ill post the earlier (hellhound version) after I get a new picture of him. I think I completed hound in late 2013, shown is a second attempt at the him, the first was terrible. and thankfully has no photos.

    77010: Phear the Kobolds!

    One of my December painting goals is to finish off any minis I have that would have fallen under the "Dungeon attack" portion of the first Bones KS. I had already painted one set of kobolds when I first started painting bones but I still had three more lying around. The first group had been done in a reddish brown, but I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the rest. Then I remembered (or perhaps made up) that some edition of DnD had kobolds that matched whatever type of dragon they served. Since I already kinda had red ones and didn't want to paint white ones, I painted a set of green, blue, and black. It's kind of nice just to paint for tabletop and not sweat the details on occasion. At the very least it's a lot faster! And as a bonus, a "let's decide to autofocus on the middle row" shot.

    03064: Kobolds (4)

    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.
  21. So last session my players were suddenly turned into kobolds and whilst it was only meant as a temporary thing they seemed to enjoy it so I was thinking of just messing around for a session with them as low level kobolds (thinking 3-5 but I'm flexible) Now normally I'd just let them to do it but I want to surprise them so I need some help making some fun Kobold PCs for them to play which will be randomly assigned (using dice of course) I would like to make 6 kobolds (roll a D6) and I'd like to stick to first party pathfinder material but as the DM I'm pretty open to hand waving various pre-reqs in the name of fun for this since it's just temporary. These are my vague plans so far Kobold 1. Ranger {trapper} or Rogue [snare setter] Kobold 2. Bard [Dragon Herald] Kobold 3. Crossbow User of some sort Kobold 4. improvised weapon user Kobold 5. a pick user...think "ex-miner" Kobold 6. ??? I'm debating making the 6th Kobold a dragon disciple by ignoring the requirements something like Sorc1/DDX not sure if that would be OP or useless or what but it would fit what I'm trying to go for...u know "typical Kobolds"

    Aard's Adventures in Painting!

    Woo! So, I finally got a camera, and I thought I'd upload some of my painted minis~ I'm gonna upload them in the order I did them, so I'll do the "Unicorn" first! Now, all of my mini's are painted in Marie's Artist's Acrylics - I get mine for 5$/box at Ocean State Job Lot. My paint brushes are these - they're cheap, they're tiny, and they move paint from the palette to the mini, which is all I really ask for in a brush. They last okay; I need to order new ones, and even 15 brushes don't last long, so I usually order 2-3 sets at a time - with free shipping, spending 5 or 6 dollars isn't that big a deal for 40-50 brushes, but they take up to 2 months to get here, a bit of a wait. Now, onto my figures! I've never painted minis before these - initially, I was looking for cheap minis for D&D on amazon, prepaints and such, and someone in the comments mentioned Reaper; I visited here, dropped a hundred bucks on some minis, and now I'm 800$ in the hole for KSII. Never gonna play D&D without minis again... they'll make my mats so much livelier. And of course, now I want to get into Hirst... but that's a matter for another thread! So I got my minis, and I was very happy. The first I decided to paint was a unicorn - my sister wanted to see a fire unicorn, and I thought, "I can do that!" So I did! HELLO, FRIENDS! Hello, unicorn! I started this one by basecoating... black, I think. Then I did the mane and tail; white, then yellow, followed by drybrushed red and orange, and with a dryer sort of drybrushing of black after. Then I made grey, and I added a little blue & brown - just the tiniest bit - and used that for the body. A slightly darker shade added the collarbone and the leg's shadow, and then I reblacked the hooves, eyes, teeth and horn... All in all, I think this one came out great! I plan to base it when the KSII bases get here; I want to do it rearing on a brownstone cliff in scrublands - something with a deep, dark red color, to give it a lot of contrast and make the mane pop! Here are some other pictures: The blur! THE BLUR! This picture shows off the mane really well, I think. The shading on the stomach, too. Next up: THE GRYPHON!

    Bones of the earth

    Have some more painted bones to share. To start off, here are some Kobolds of the tribe of Bron... I may get another set and paint them in black and silver as Kobold Raiders... I also painted up the Pathfinder Wizard Ezren with a non-canon color scheme: I'm pretty proud of the Earth Elemental I did. I painted the skeleton in his shoulder like a fossil instead of as fresh bones: And my most recent is the Marsh Troll, which I did a WIP of if you're interested: Comments and criticism appreciated.

    David's Bones WIP

    I actually painted them about a year ago. Figured I should share me WiP pics. These three were painted with reaper rust paint. I found the coverage to be much better than with the GW paints! If reaper really expands their selection I'm going to have to shift my paints collection away from GW paints to reaper paints. Now, I don't have any of the foundation paints, so I'm not sure how well those would work. The other 3 were primed with GW black primer. However, I found that painting the unprimed minis with the reaper paints was a much more pleasant experience! I was shocked, but pleased. Painting over the reaper rust paint with GW paints was easy, and a bit more pleasant than painting over the primer. Now, that may have been because in my haste I didn't give the primer a good long time to dry...
