This is my most ambitious attempt to date.  A mini-campaign I’m running some people through calls for many kobolds of varying colors and classes.  I had 12 Kobolds from Bones I, the 4 pack in metal that those were based off of (03064), the metal Leader and Sorcerer (03024), the 12 awesome new kobolds from Bones 4, and a 7 pack (I may have gotten a freebie, I thought I bought a six pack) of kobolds from the Ral Partha TSR Official D&D 2nd Edition line, stamped 1989.  That’s a whopping 37 figures.  I want to paint tribes from all 5 chromatic factions, and want to have as few duplicate poses per faction possible.  The Ral Partha kobolds have a more simian or canine face compared to the more reptilian face of the Reaper models, but I’m still going to fold those into each faction.  The Adventure calls out a Cleric (Red) a Ranger, (Green) and a Sorcerer (Green).  Those are the only ones with specific art, and I have models representative of each present without need for modification.  Also, I am not planning to add to the bases at all.

 

And I want to finish all of this in about a month (unlikely)!

 

Wish me luck!

Nice!

Always like to see warbands or armies getting painted.

Aww, man!  I was checking through Bones 3 pics on Kickstarter.  It seems I have 6 more Kobolds unaccounted for!  I’ll have to dig through my expansion box tomorrow!

Yikes, suspicion confirmed.  The total Kobold Horde now totals 43.  Most YEARS I don’t paint that many models.

Ko bolds! Ko bolds! Ko bolds! Woooooooo!

 

Enjoy the horde!

 

Assembly line painting FTW, definitely. But if you group them by color, they should go pretty quick. Fun!

Thanks, Sanael.

Here is the first group.

One of them in the module is a Ranger with a Raptor companion, so it is included in the group.

These will be green scaled, except for the Bones IV Wizard, which will be red.

 

I still need to clean up lines and wash them.

Metal has been primed white brush on primer.  Bonesium models primed in undiluted Green Liner.

Base coat of Peacock Green.  These sculpts have nice character.  This guy has an eye patch!  I’m thinking I’ll pick out one model per update...

I recently painted my kobold army, so I fully support this endeavor!  I commend you for cleaning up mold lines on so many at once. I only did 18, and "mostly" cleaned mold lines, but was more interested in getting paint on them all. Can't wait to see this peacock green army!

Some with cloth-y parts or rags got Khaki Shadow on them.  It took 2 coats to get most of the green out.
