[Group/Open] WIP Goblins and Kobolds and Rats, oh my! Bones Dungeon Attack

Recommended Posts

Well, someone had to do it. Feel free to post your Bones goblins, kobolds, and rats in here.


A lot of n00bz people new to miniature painting (including myself) had expressed interest in painting the rats first. They're small, don't have much detail, and are generally non-threatening. Just like a CR 1/3 creature should be.


So here are mine. After some attention with my needle files and a good scrub, I started off with some black slobbering. Most of these were done with 9037 Pure Black, the two all-black tail-up rats with 9289 Noir Black, just so I could see the difference. Noir Black is just a tiny, tiny bit lighter than the Pure Black. Someone with more experience could probably explain it better. I can only tell the difference when they're side-by-side.





Here's some base coating. Straight 9384 Lonestar Leather on the brown ones. About a 5:2 mix of 9086 Stone Grey : 9289 Noir Black on the bases.





Of course, you HAVE to have an albino. I basecoated this one with 9039 Pure White with juuuust a bit of 9286 Punk Rock Pink. I guess we'll see if that was a mistake or not. I also hit the bases with some 9086 Stone Grey.





That's as far as I've gotten thus far. I kind of forget that I should be thinning the paint going on after the basecoats. I guess I'll get the hang of this.


I'll probably hit the bases with a darker wash, then go for some highlights. Mr. albino will get a closer-to-pure-white coat, and the rest... I'll figure out as I go.


Good painting everyone!

Well alright, Here are some more up close pictures of my Goblinz.





I feel like they look realistic, but, I realize they don't have nearly enough contrast. Any tips or advice are welcome.


edit: I think these were taken before I lightened up and retouched the bases where the paint had worn off.

I definitely will, if not on these guys, I will going forward - I basically consider these my "first", and so they get to be enshrined with all there errors in tact. Any advice or tips I get will still be helpful for future painting though.


If it's worth the time, bring up the highlights. Much more than you think. The tanned leather to a tanned skin tone, the yellowish jerkins to an ochre yellow, and the skin to a bright, light green.


I'd say the skin is especially important for getting a good read on the tabletop.

It is the first time I opened the 2nd set of the vampire pledge.


I removed the Dungeon Attack Creatures and put the others back until I have time to count and check them.


So here are my 24 WIP Kobolds. I used vallejo parasite brown and a yellow color for the clothes.


I saw this week a color which helps to make surfaces look like marble. I think I will get it and check if I can get a marble look on the pointy part of the spear.




Edit: One is missing if I'm counting correctly, so he must be got away somehow...

Edit again: I caught him!:-)

Right, found the Group WIP. that's the start!!


I have cut all the broccoli off and re-based my dungeon goblins, kobold and rats on 20mm dungeon square bases:




They are undercoated with Halfords grey primer' which I was scared to try but it is awesome, I did a test first.


Here is my first WIP photos, and I even got some orange on a gobo:

That's an interesting take on the rats. Having the fur line stop near the faces.

Lol. Just googled images of rats. I may have had a reality issue. I thought they looked weird after I painted them but couldn't put my finger on it!
