Snar Mangebelly (03295) Kobold King


Recommended Posts

Hey folks!

Finally finished the last Kobold on the shelf of prep, and I tried a few new things on him, so in my opinion, he is the best of the Tribe that I have done.

(It's Good to be The King!)

He was finished up with wet blending and layering, so a large improvement over my older style of base coat, wash, mid tone, high light.

He is also the first figure that I did work with my new Scale 75 Metallic golds, and new Raphael brushes, so tools and techniques changed in the painting of this guy. His scepter and crown were done with all 4 gold shades from the Metal 'N Alchemy Gold set, and they are something else! The orb in the scepter, and any gems were given 2 coats of water effect to spice them up. Forget who posted that trick on one of their minis, but thanks!

His left eye is very strange, as far as I can tell, it is designed and sculpted that way. Not many images of this figure in any search I tried that showed that side of the fig...

I tried to paint it as if it was enlarged and infected with some disease... So I used a deeper yellow than the norm, no pupil, and a couple of light light grey glazes to try and make it look cloudy / catarachted...


Comments welcome!





Now the Kobolds are talking back!!!!

It's all Buglips' fault....

 Lol - still haven't painted him... Haven't looked at him in years, either...


Edit: And... apparently Elvis has left the building. I seem to not have this guy anymore. Hrm, now that I think about it, I also seem to recall having given him away to someone, possibly at a Paint Day...

I love this little guy! The scepter looks great. Made a very rudimentary start on my one, but he's got buckets of character.

And yes, his left eye is supposed to be bugging.


You did a great job on him, I like your idea of the blind/diseased eye.

Thanks guys!


Don't really know what else you could do with that eye, unless you were going to go with some sort of bulging metal eye patch...

Or try and re sculpt it some how.

He is also the only kobold I have ever seen with hair....
