  1. I recently painted my kobold army, so I fully support this endeavor!  I commend you for cleaning up mold lines on so many at once. I only did 18, and "mostly" cleaned mold lines, but was more interested in getting paint on them all. Can't wait to see this peacock green army!

    OH YES!


    When in doubt add Purple!


    I tried a few variations using Photoshop on my wife's computer. At long last, the purple seemed to tie it together better than the other colors.

    The only niggle I have is that the grip on the bow is in a brown that's very close to the brown in his fur. 


    That's a solid niggle. I may darken the grip like it's been worn with use.

    Fantastic work! He looks like he is about to ruin someone's day. I love the work on his fur, and i think your changes made a great difference. Good job taking feedback and applying it!

    Thank you!!

    OUTSTANDING! I really like the color change...EXCELLENT choice.

    Much appreciated!


    I'll make sure to post some finished photos when I'm complete.  When I was putting the hand holding the bow on this model, I made the poor choice of not pinning it. As I glued it in place, I thought to myself, "this is going to break. why aren't you pinning this?"

    Well, sure enough, as I went to start working on the base, it popped off in my hand. Not too big an issue, but rather annoying nonetheless. I pinned and glued it together late last night and have to touch up some areas right around the points of contact. It should be back to "normal" and stronger than before in no time.


    In the home stretch now and getting anxious to start on my next mini. I think someone mentioned it in another thread, how it can be difficult sometimes when you only have an hour here or there to paint. I'm in that boat as well. I cherish and try to make the most of the time I have, as short as it may be.


    Thanks again everyone for the great feedback. I may take this little guy with me to ReaperCon.

    Awesome job so far.


    The only thing is that his pouches/sack etc are painted in browns, as is his bow as is his fur.

    As a result it all blends in.


    You can leave it this way, because it is all painted well and as a ranger he can pull it off, blending in with his surroundings.

    But for me, I would give it some more contrast, maybe paint them a darker brown, or a light grey, I think it will make him "pop" more.

    Looks awesome.  I really, really like the cloak.

    I agree with the sparkly wolf that you could vary the leathers a bit if you like.

    I do love the colors you chose & your brushwork is OUTSTANDING, but doing the mantle in a darker brown, dark green, maroon, or orange would offer more contrast. 


    Thanks so much for the feedback. I really appreciate it. I may try my hand at making the mantle much darker... Or maybe even maroon like malefactus said. All good ideas and well received. 


    If I have time tonight after the kids go to bed, I'll get back to it. :winkthumbs:

    Well glitterwolf caught me out on this one.  I currently do have the ex military hare from oathsworn on my bench.  However, I also have a number of hare raising fellows from dark sword that are now going to have to become part of the bunny brigade, especially since I just got the bunnies and borrows reboot.  Looks like a bunch of bunnies are headed to my desk! ::D:


    I've been looking for an excuse to paint them...

    Paint ALL the bunnies!! ::D:

    You are doing great work here.  My only thing I would do differently if it were mine would be to vary the color of the eyes.  They are the same basic color of the fur, so they meld into the face a little, and you did such a good job bringing them to life.

    I was thinking the same thing. I may make them a bit more orange/yellow like the outfit. I'm trying to keep colors to a minimum, but I still very much want contrast to be high enough in those important areas like the eyes.  Thanks for the feedback!!

    Oooh, I forgot about him.  Oathsworn does amazing bunnies!  I have a finished Paladin, and the retired soldier barkeep is on my bench.  They both have this expression of Seen it, done it, you don't impress me on them and this one is no exception. I like the color scheme you have chosen and look forward to the finished piece! (now to find him in my pile...)

    Yay!  Can't wait to see what you do with yours!  I'm having fun with this little guy. I hope to finish him soon, but am heading out of town for a few days, so he may have to wait until I return.

    Both styles look great! :winkthumbs:


    Thanks folks!  I really appreciate all the kind words!


    I just got back into town late last night and the weekend of gaming was a success!! Our party took care of all these crazy kobolds with style... and my group really loved fighting painted figures.


    On to the next project! We may just need some Yuanti... er.. cough cough, I mean "Nagendra".

    Very nice bunch - really like the skin color and the writing on the scroll!

    Thanks folks!  I get to put them into action tonight. I'm sure the party will handle it well and the kobolds will die, but hopefully they'll look good dying. Haha.
