Kobold Sorcerer

Recommended Posts

I was quite inspired by the Kobold Sorcerer in this post.  I had this one sitting on my desk, and I thought to myself, "What a great speed paint idea!"  So, I set my timer, and set out to create my own Kobold Sorcerer.  All in all, I think he came out pretty good for a 1 hour paint job.  Granted, I have not completed the base, but as it stands, I think he would be perfectly fine for use on a table.  What do you think?



Special thanks to Muninn for the inspiration on the piece.

Someone will inevitably point out that the flames should be yellow toward the bottom & go orange & red toward the top. HOWEVER, I like the way you did it AND this is a Wizard wielding Arcane Fire.

All that aside, your little Wizardly creation is SPLENDID; I love the colors you chose & your brushwork is OUTSTANDING. GREAT WORK!

I realized my mistake on the fire after it was posted.  I was thinking about changing it a blue/green arcane flame, but decided to leave it as is for now.  If I make any adjustments, I will post updated pictures in this thread. :D  The funny thing is, I used to be a fire fighter, and dealt with flames quite a bit.  One would think I would remember the basic appearance of them!

      My exchange partner this time around was @Corporea.  She was one of those troublesome ones that are fine with anything.  This of course means that I am free to do anything, so what I did was use her as an excuse to test out airbrushing my Vallejo Air Metallics.  Because of that this mini is a little more metallic than I might have otherwise done.  The aluminum didn't want to airbrush, or hand brush for that matter, so I may have a bad bottle.  Other than that they all worked as expected. I.e. you can create a TMM effect by combining these paints with a regular paint for the shadows.
      I also tried my hand at a mosaic tile base.  The area I started with isn't as good as the rest of the base, but seeing as I am already late I didn't go back and take even more time to repaint that area.  Overall I thought it turned out pretty well, though I don't believe I'll be doing it on cork again. While I thought the imperfections in the surface could work as missing tiles, in practice they just ended up being in inconvenient places.

      But unfortunately I had to stick a mini on it.


      Full frontal metal shiny.

      And rotating around for those that want to look.
      I also attempted to create the look of texture by applying leather colors in a series of parallel lines.  I kind of liked it but at the same time I'm not sure that it comes across as any particular type of texture.

      And that's it for my 2019 exchange.  Next year I might even try to be on time.

      I’m working on trying to get this big guy painted to tabletop standard by the time I have to use him at our next Pathfinder D&D session to represent the Roc King on Tilagos Island in the Demiplane of Last Resort, in the Age of Worms adventure path.

      Painted up these 8 unrelated barbarians as a clan for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. Tried my hand at non-metallic metal again. This is the result. :)

      This is one I've had "in progress" for ages. I finally mustered the courage to tackle all the eyes and then had fun with drool!
