My mini is finished and just awaiting some proper varnish. Because I want some matte effects to stay matte and some shiny bits to stay shiny post varnish. Heck, he might not need varnish at all. I dunno. Either way, he's looking good. I should take pictures.
I've drybrushed the Kobold's bow and arrow, and I'll be doing some details on the feathers and arrow-tip... and possibly the one buckle I could identify on his leathers. Once all that's done, I'll hit the leathers with some Earth Tones wash and hope it all turns out looking fabulous.
Nobody will care except me. I am doing this for Sisu and I know it. On the other hand, I shall have a lovely little kobold figure that exists as a thing. Which I am NEVER DOING AGAIN unless someone hands me sufficient money. Like $200+ type money. USD. Why?
BECAUSE KOBOLDS ARE A PAIN IN THE ARSE TO PAINT AND I NEED SERIOUS MONETARY MOTIVATION TO EVEN TRY ONE OF THOSE LITTLE BASTARDS AGAIN.
They are 10000% detail painting, their fiddly bits have fiddly bits, and it's impossible to paint these little assholes without needing five billion touch-ups and I am DONE with this noise.
...after this one...
And soon I shall be done with today's story and taking some (I hope) well-deserved time off.
