What an UBERCOOL little creation! You did OUTSTANDING work with the sculpting, painting & basing. VERY WELL DONE indeed!

He is sculpted in greenstuff (epoxy putty) with a polystyrene spear haft and the tip of the spear is from another kobold.
It's an old mini, but important to me. As far as tools go I use all types of things, from metal and rubber pro tools, to home made tools made from various materials  and other improvised objects like mechanical pencils and texture stamps (rocks FTW).

And, yes, it does tend to attract three and five year olds (AKA my children) as would be expected for something that is irreplaceable. Never fails.

I've managed to finish some stuff this weekend, so newly completed minis are on deck!

I realized this guy is a little incomplete, He actually has a shield bearer, which is a r&f kobold with a minor conversion.

I just started with conversions. Those smaller scale projects will really teach you how to handle the putty. It also allows you to isolate skills (such as generating a particular texture) and practice bit by bit.

      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!

      #75-80 Kobold Mooks

      Really enjoyed painting these up, and looking forward to getting the Bones Kickstarter with 12 more unique sculpts. 
       
      Painted these as a batch of 12 in about 2.5 hours by starting with an all over coat of Vallejo German Red Brown primer, then a wash with Green stuff World Swamp Brown ink. Then just a case of picking out the details, and highlighting the skin with Vallejo Game Colour Tan.  I didn't finish off with a wash, as I normally would, because the minis were so small and had a Brown palette. I thought I would just blur the details if I washed them.. 
       
      The bases are mdf disks (20mm) with Green stuff World roller used to add a texture. That was just painted in Scale 75 Grey Brown and shaded with Army Painter Strong Tone.

      Does anyone use some sort of software to keep track of their miniature collections? With pictures and/or searchable tags?
       
      Anyone in the hobby for a while, and who invested in Bones (and many other miniature) Kickstarters; Warhammer armies; Heroclix armies; individual or box sets at your FLGS or online store, etc. has accumulated so many that they tend to forget what exactly they own anymore.
       
      I know I went over the 1000 individual miniature mark after Bones 2. And with Bones 4 around the corner, it keeps growing alarmingly fast. And I know I'm not the only one.
       
      Sure for the Kickstarters miniatures, I can always go back to the original campaign page and look up the images. But there certainly must be a simple application that would do the same job as Reaper's tag search, but without requiring coding skill.
       
      I think my ideal format would be something that would show: Picture; name; company; manufacturer code (if available); sculptor name (if available); and any amount of tags (male - fighter - sword - elf - bow), and then filter the results.
       
      I know it can be done; I just don't know how.
       
      I know there are image organization software, movie collection software, comic book collection software, music collection software, etc. But haven't found anything more generic for miniatures.
       
      February 2019 Update: I'm taking the Excel route afterall.
