77010: Kobolds (Barkscale) (x3)


Recommended Posts

More minis from my Shelf of Shame Long-Term, Partially-Completed Backlog:  A trio of kobolds from one of the Reaper Bones kickstarters!

These are some of the tiniest minis I've painted.  Even so, it took about 2 long evenings to complete them.

 

I did lots of practice of NMM steel and gold.  I'm now of the opinion that NMM works better than metallics for small minis.

 

The clothing was originally red, but I found it was too close to the orange of the skin color and just blended together from about 2 feet away, so they got repainted to a color/tone that was more distinct.

 

I prefer that my kobolds be weird dog/lizard hybrid creatures, so they all got black noses.  It looks good on these!

 

That brings the total minis I've painted this year to 19! (With another one in the wings.)

Excellent skin tones and nmm (especially with the shield - exquisite). I'm with you on the dog/lizard hybrid thing. Full lizard kobolds are fine, but I prefer to have some K-9 elements thrown in the mix as well if the sculpt supports it (as is the case here). Just makes them weirder and more cool. 

 

Nice group of mins!

I also prefer my orcs to be pig-faced.  Does that make me old-school, I wonder?
