Mwahahaha! Oh, I can't tell you how happy I am to see that guy! I was hoping you might like him - I can't wait to see how he turns out. (^_^) I have faith you'll do great things with the egg whisk!

will you make some mould of them? I'd love to get some!
They should be available from Fenris eventually.

@MartinWhitmore: Damn you and your fiddly egg whisk, Sir!

First two finished Kobolds:

Not too happy with the one with the club to be honest, feels a bit rushed... plus the face looks slightly Skeksis to me...
These little guys are proving quite tricky. In addition to the small size (which I am used to), the tail & the long snout mean I have to be extra mindful of potential undercuts.
Still, more Kobolds are on the corks, together with one or two more goblins. When this is all done, I might have a bash at an Orc or an Ogre. It might be nice to try something big for a change. Till then, I've got Marty's concept art for a Boss Kobold to be going on with...

Very nice. I like the club one, but as an artist you're always most critical of your own work. :)

Love'em both. "Slightly skeksis" is no bad thing at all. It was Dark Crystal that got me into professional modelmaking, so anyone quoting that as a reference gets a free pass  :twisted:

I like them. They're right on the cusp of "Oh, cute" and "nasty little bugger".

Awesome looking stuff again. And skeksiness is all to the good as far as I am concerned.

skeksiness
Had not noticed it, but agreed.   Is it weird to think of a kobold being skeksi?   :lmao

Two more Koblods slouch belatedly off the production line, muttering excuses...

The first one was done a few days ago, or would have been, if his right foot had not refused to part company with the cork.

Wow, hadn't seen this thread til just now. These look really cool! The second-to-last kobold WIP doing a hand-stand looks like it may end up as a gymnast harem kobold.  :wry:

Took a break from the kobolds this weekend to indulge a little more goblin related work:

Still not 100% happy with that egg whisk... just a little more tidying up to do

Work in progress goblin captain/knight. Don Goblin de la Mancha maybe? Still don't know how he will turn out.

Muhahaha...

Also on the corks is a goblin merchant, though he is still little more than a pair of feet at the moment. Photos when I get round to them. :whistle:

Nekkid gobos = not a very good sight.  Although in another way, if they are savages, it would fit to be badly/under dressed.  But not with these guys.

More work done on the goblin merchant. Slashed sleeves are really fiddly.

More sluggish progress on this one. need to decide what sort of hat to give him. Tricorn? Robin Hood? Something with a big feather in it anyway.

Must get around to taking some photos of the others at some point, too.

I might go with something floppy. ...in the hat department, I mean. Especially if you're gonna stick a feather in it.
