77010 Kobold by OneBoot

Recommended Posts

I think he looks very nice.

 

I don't really see the sloppy, but we are our own worst critics.

 

Having fun is important, though. :upside:

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...

Nice clean brushwork!

I always liked the oldschool kobolds. Turning them into miniature lizardmen with delusions of grandeur never did a thing for me.

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!

Nice little smurf Kobold.

 

Fun is THE most important thing.

Otherwise it would be called WORK and not a HOBBY.

 

Keep coming with more minis plze

I totally feel your pain on the paint speed, OneBoot. I can't do anything quickly. :zombie:

 

I still think he looks good though.

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

      We're walking in the air (...)

      Being a band of bony retribution soon to cross the Brandywine and come a-knocking on little round doors under the hills.
       
      Most of these skeleton minis are from the same second hand purchase where I got the zombies that were featured a few week ago. I got the incomplete undead mammoth off Ebay several years ago, and Short Wart himself is an Oathsworn Halfling Necromancer. All minis have been given 3D printed bases, most of them 25mm.
       
      There are a lot of pics beneath, although some are distictly unfocussed, as if a dark power did not wish to be documented...

      Yet another of my entries in a painting league on another forum
       

      Pride and Joy
      A nice walk in the park for the Lovecrafts.
       
      Sorry about the pics being a bit blurry, I am still struggling with the camera. It seems it is not meant for such small items.
       
      Most of the miniatures are from a recent 2019 kickstarter by Bear's Head Miniatures, apart from the large Star Spawn that is from the game Cthulhu Wars by Petersen Games. One of the kickstarters for that game had an option for one each of the miniatures extra, and this one is from that set. I hacked off the moulded base it originally came with so I could have similar style bases for the whole family.
       
      Lots of pics and such below, go on, you know you want to click it:

      "Bring Out Your Dead!"
      I envision this as a wandering band who collects the dead. Sometimes they need to make ther cargo dead first. Being death warmed over themselves, they do not know what else to do with their unlives.
       
      lots more pictures beneath the click:

      The chibi smallworld minis are all based on existing normal minis in the Reaper lines. I recognized five of them from the minis I have from earlier Bones kickstarters, but not Arnise the female barbarian elf that I painted the other day.
      The reason being that the original was included in the Bones 4 core set. An older metal mini being redone into Bones material it seems.

      So I painted her in a similar scheme.
       

      The metal version is called Arnise, Elven Sergeant from the Warlord line, and represents the Sergeant of Almirithil's frenzied half-elven berserkers in the Warlord lore.
       

      Why hello there, you remind me of someone I once knew...
