Wow! What a beautiful orange!!! Given my rocky past with Lava Orange (we aren't currently on speaking terms), I think I may learn to love orange again if Pumpkin Orange has coverage as good as your picture seems to imply.  :wub:

 

What did you use to highlight? It looks really sharp!

 

Huzzah!

It's not great for coverage, but one of the better oranges by far. I found when I was painting up my pumpkin chibis that it took a couple coats to get really good coverage, but it was not bad.

Shadows are burgundy wine mixed with the base, and highlights were fair highlight mixed with the orange.

Yellows and oranges always seem to have coverage issues - anyone know why that is?

 

I'm considering Pumpkin Orange as goblin skin, myself, on my Bones-conversion Gobbo Blood Bowl team that's in progress. That kobold is a convincing argument for Pumpkin Orange as a skin tone!

 

Thanks for the shadow & highlight recipes too, very helpful.

      Started converting my bones v robot kobolds. The idea was to arm them with scifi weapons to use them as a little starship boarding party. 
       
      The plan is to do a total of 9 when ever they hit retail, all with different weapons. 
       
      So far axe guy has a plasma gun and a samurai banner.
      Then there's rocket launcher kobold
      Knife kobold has a flame thrower.

      I found this little jeep at the grocery store. Since it was roughly the right size I chopped up a bones kobold to drive it. And piled some food, a crystal and a duck in the back.

      It was not bad, but I didn't really like the sword, since my goal was joyride mayhem as opposed to fighting. So I gave it a mug instead. 

      I also gave him a little lizard pal hanging on the outside. 

      So that's cool, but I want to make it sillier still before I paint it. 
      Currently thinking of sticking a bag of golf clubs and maybe some other kobold loot on the jeep.

      I recently finished a group of Reaper Bones miniatures. As they are so small they were a little hard to paint at some points. I'm fairly new painting miniatures so I was looking for some feedback and potentially some tips on how to improve in the future. All comments, advice, and constructive criticism is welcome. 
       
      My own main criticism with them is the highlights as I'm not 100% where/how to paint proper highlights to make a natural look without a ton of brush strokes.

      So, before I go any further, I am an absolute rookie in the mini painting world. So, uh, prepare for the worst.  
       
      Anyways, here's a trio of Kobold leaders. Yeah, I know there's six of them, but one got lost and the other two need a good bit more work, so it's just these three for now.
       
      As I said, I'm completely new to this hobby, so any friendly critiques are welcome!
       
      KNOWN FAULTS:
      I missed a couple spots on the first kobold leader's face.
      And a few other random spots elsewhere on all three.
      All of their bases look nasty...
      I didn't do their eyes, as I want to get a bit more familiar with this before I try doing something like that.

      The term "Kobold" is originally German for "goblin", "gnome" or "faery", the scary and dangerous beings from outside the campfire's light in preindustrial times.
       
      In D&D the name has been used on 1st level mooks who used to be doglike goblinoids but these days are dragonkin, i.e. small reptiliads.
       
      These newer kobolds from Reaper are very much more dragon- or reptile-like than earlier versions that might have been doglike...
       

      There are 12 of them in the Bones 4 core set. 6 mooks and 6 leaders.
       
      #103-108: Kobold Leaders


      These are the slightly more powerful kobolds. Some of them might even be 2nd level!
      Numbered left to right, #103-#108.
       
      Also note the many mammary glands on #105. These are supposed to be reptilian?
       
      #75-#80: The Kobold Mooks


      Numbered left to right, #75-#80.
       
      Not by best work by far. I did four different colour combinations, three of each.
       
      After these there are only 3 models left in the core set to go!
       

      12 1st level mooks vs 1 12th level barbarian berserker. Who will win? Ready! Steady! Fight!
