Tut - Chibi - 01546

Recommended Posts

I am presently working through the Chibi's from Reaper I have collected.    This is the first to be completed in 2017.


I present to you TUT  #01546.  I need to get better at eyes though especially for these Chibi's.. any suggestions, guidance or critique would be appreciated.

He coulda won a Grammy buried in his 'jamies, King Tut...it came unbidden into my head. The Boy King is a COOL little creation. I love the way you did his eyes. OUTSTANDING WORK!

I think the Eyes aren't bad at all.


You could use a little white for a reflection dot and a little yellow streak in the red.

It will make them pop more.


I did that with the Countess.

I think he looks great, including the eyes.  There are a few tutorials online for painting chibi eyes, here are a few that I like:

http://robjedi.blogspot.com/2015/04/super-dungeon-explore-painting-eyes.html(simple, but really nice IMHO)

Hope some of these help!

I like it too. I'm actually paint Chibi myself and since eyes have always be something I have a hard time to paint I think Chibis are good models to practice on.

There's some nice links to videos on how to paint eyes on the Painting Tips & Advice here's a link to my favorite one, Painting Eyes by David Powell recomendad by CashWiley.

And, The Craft section also have a Basic Steps to Bold Eyes tutorial by Darin Hlavaz.

I like the Chibi, and I'm grateful for all of the comments on eyes - I've been painting some Chibis of my own, and I'm going to try that 'do the eyes first' idea on the next one.

      a new Impact! project offers 12 frog folk either for RPGs (with smaller heads etc) or as Chibis (with larger heads etc)

      you can buy the minis directly as physical prints

      or you can buy the STLs if you have a 3D printer of your own

      Digital Models - You can purchase the STL 3-D Print file for any of the below 24 models for $2 each. One entire set of STL 3-D Print files for the 12 models in either RPG or Chibi format is $15. All 24 STL 3-D Print files are $25.

      (NOTE: The RPG Frog Folk Merchant is available for as a free download below .. you do not need to buy it!)

      Physical Models - You can purchase individual physical copies of the miniatures for any of the below 24 models (see the image for price per a model). One entire set of 12 physical miniatures in either RPG or Chibi format is $65. All 24 physical miniatures for this KickStarter (both sets) is only $110. The sets are discounted for this KickStarter from the expected retail prices of $70 and $130 for the sets when/if they go to into our retail store.

      The physical models both RPG and Chibi are designed for an average Frog Folk Villager to be 28mm in total height when standing. Since most Frog Folk are shown of smaller stature than a Human in most RPG settings we feel this scale helps show that well.

      Free Sample!
      If you want a sample of the models, Cute Loot Miniatures is providing the RPG version of the Frog Folk Merchant for free to download for your review!

      I am really enjoying Rangers of Shadow Deep as a solo play experience. I am currently painting up the opponents and some rangers for the Across the Wastes adventure. 
      These are all Reaper, about 50/50 Bones or metal. Lots of drybrushing again. The scorpions are just dark grey spray, washed in black, with drops of 'orc blood" from Green Stuff World used as venom. I also used some foam clay to make rocks for the scorpion bases.

      Here is a little preview of Lilyana one of our core minis for that set.

      Main Game ($80)

      Expansion Box ($40, so $120 total)

      We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Singapore (Singaporean backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.
      USA: $10-$20 to most states. $50 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.  CANADA: $15-$30 to most cities.  LATIN AMERICA: $70-$80 to most countries.  ASIA: $10 to China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. $35 to most other countries (we can’t predict an estimate cost to Malaysia). OCEANIA: $20-$45 to Australia. $40 to New Zealand.  AFRICA: $95 to most countries.  EUROPE: $20-$30 to most countries.   • $35 to Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia.   • $50 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Iceland.   • $70-$80 to Israel, Liechtenstein, and Serbia.  • $90 to Belarus. Unfortunately, different import laws and customs have made it impossible for CMON to ship games to certain specific countries.
      *WE DO NOT SHIP TO:* Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.
