I just got into mini painting about nine months ago, and since then I have thoroughly enjoyed it. So much more than I ever thought I would. During the summer I came across a couple of images of a fire giant that made me really want to see it at my own table. It was these two images that solidified my love for this hobby. It was there that I was introduced to Reaper Mini, I promptly submitted an order for two of these bodyguards(and about ten others) and I have not looked back.
Over the last 5 months I have ordered about $300 of minis. It is becoming a costly addiction that I can't say no to. In all that time only one mini had problems, and after one short email, I had a replacement on its way. And then for today, my wife got me my biggest order yet, and it came with a bag of paints. A literal bag of paints, all of which I didn't have any of the colours. So for the quick response to my problems, the amazing looking models, and of course all the freebies, I just want to say, "Thank you Reaper Mini!".
I just wish I had learned about this Kickstarter thing before it stopped taking orders, I want that new fire giant!
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!
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.
Hi all, my first post was answered by such warm and supportive folks I decided to have a crack at the ol' orc from Reaper mini training set #1. The left eye took me 6 tries (and twice that many curses.) Really enjoying this new hobby, first time I tried was back in 1983 and it was a disaster. Maybe patience does come with age. :)
Hello all, I'm stuck at home the next couple of months like the rest of the world and thought I'd finally try again after my only failed attempt at painting minis thirty-five years ago. I got one of the Reaper Core Essentials kits and did my first one today. Honestly I just can't believe it came out at all. When I was a kid I didn't have anyone to give me advice like the awesome Reaper booklet did (washes, base coating, etc.) and I seriously have to say thanks for putting out such a well designed tutorial. I just bought the Layer kit and I look forward to learning from all the expert artists here.
