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 .
My Painting & sculpting vacation starts today! Yay!
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 â€”fire orange maybeâ€” 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.

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 ;)
So, maybe not my best work, but they were a lot of fun to paint and convert. And kobolds are just adorable =D
