Two very old Kobolds

Recommended Posts

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:

Those predate Reaper. I've had them in my collection since the '80's. They're Ral Partha.

 

Give me a sec and I'll post a quick pic.

 

EDIT: yours are more nicely painted than mine, and I quite like the little diorama you did.

I just took a quick and poor flash photo of a couple of mine so you can see that yours are older than you thought.

Excellent paint job! What is the crystal formation? Actual crystals, or something commercial?

It's a real crystal.

Thanks! I guess I would need to go scrounging in some different sorts of places for that...

Nice work!!

 

I fondly remember painting up those kobolds back in my heydays of gaming & painting. I painted one up with a Hawaiian shirt (bright blue with yellow & orange flowers). One of these I may have to post it on here.

 As I remember, they're part of a set of four. I still have them.

 

Re: crystals...

 

 Not particularly hard to find. Craft or art stores probably won't have them, but any new age shop, rock shop, maybe even gift shop will have tons of them. The imperfect and broken ones generally look better on bases and are almost always a lot cheaper.

Also, depending on where you live, keep an eye out on the ground anywhere there are a lot of rocks - bits of quartz are fairly common and sometimes end up in the stones or gravel they use to cover walkways and things.

On a more general note, you can scrounge up all sorts of good basing materials out in the wild if you keep your eyes open.

Me too. A small armies worth.

Another poor pic below of the 4 examples if anyone is interested.

      I Don't have much to go on with this dragon.  its another one that has been sitting half finished on my shelf forever.  the bottom has some script on the bottom that looks like FWS and an 8.  other than that I don't have any clue where it comes from. 
       
      but I finally dusted the mini off, freshened up the red (It was becoming a pink dragon) and decided to display it here.  hope everyone enjoys!

      I somehow forgot to post this guy when I finished him last year. I painted him shortly after I finished his queenly counterpart. I had some issues with the ice on the base so it didn't turn out exactly as I hoped but it's ok. Painting these big guys is sure a whole different experience to painting the "normal" sized minis.

      Presenting The Fighter (Echoes of Death version), she's a Kingdom Death: Monster re-imagining of their existing The Fighter mini, who, in turn, was Kingdom Deaths take on a generic fighter class character.
       
      Quite pleased with this one. She took a while as I kept finding bits I'd missed hiding under her hair, and I rushed her shield in the end (it needs at least one more highlight, but my hands have been really shaky recently and I didn't want to mess it up) so I may put a bit more work in at a later date.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Presenting Veteran Decimate, a minor noblewoman turned sword for hire, who was originally a member of Guild Balls mercenary Union team (I haven't painted this version yet), however plot related shenanigans caused her to move to the Brewers Guild team resulting in this new 'Veteran' version.
       
      Really happy with this one, there's a few things I could do better (her bracers, straps and glove blend together too much), but I think overall it turned out pretty good.
