He looks fine to me. I had to produce 42 of these guys in 21 hours of paint time. mine do not look nearly so clean or pretty.

Ah, but you now have 41 more painted kobolds than I do, in substantially less time than it would have taken me to paint up the same number. :) I just really need to keep reminding myself that "Perfect is the opposite of done", since I could count the number of figures I painted last year without having to take off my boot. The Resolutionary challenge is going to be good for me! :D

 

Huzzah!

It's amazing what you can do with a deadline, a brush, and friends who think dry brushing is high art. The best part was I did them for the Kobolds king pathfinder adventure, and then the Kobold sorcerer in the party convince's the commoner kobolds that he is their new high priest, neatly eliminating the need for all these kobolds.

 

The only mercy I got out of this was that now the party has a small troop of Unwashed and unwanted kobolds following them around everywhere they go singing the praises of their new priest...loudly...and off key. And of course they expect their priest to feed and house them.

If that's the worst you can do, that's pretty darn good! I really like the shading on the back of his (her?) shirt. Doesn't really look tabletop quality to me.

 

As far as lining goes, I don't know if it will work for you, but--what I do with tabletop-quality bones is start with an undercoat of one of the Reaper liners, and then basecoat away most, but not all, of the liner undercoat. So it looks as though you've lined something, but really what you've done is just kept some of the undercoat exposed. Saves time but you still get most of the benefits!

 

This gets more complicated if you want to use many liner colors, of course, but tabletop quality or speedpainting is all about which tradeoffs you're willing to make...

I read in Kobolds of Golarion that the Icerender tribe of kobolds in the Tusk Mountains (Realm of the Mammoth Lords) are white.  Anyone tried painting white kobolds or have a pic?

 

Ooo, I like that idea. I want to eventually have all of my kobolds painted in all the colors that dragons can be, and a white one would look neat! :)

 

Huzzah!

Please let me see a pic when you do.  I am hesitant to paint a set of white ones.
