I haven’t had much time for painting this week, so I used what time I had on my smallest miniature: an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Kobold. I picked him up cheaply with some other odds and ends I thought might come in handy during our Shin High Terror campaign. He didn’t, and I don’t know much about him – except that he’s tiny even among other miniatures.
This boxed set contained a selection of 11 basic low-level D&D monsters. These figures were sculpted with integral metal shields . . . by Michael Perry, Alan Perry, Bob Naismith, and Jes Goodwin.
I chose a colour sheme based on Tony DiTerlizzi’s artwork in the AD&D 2nd Edition Monstrous Manual. I bought all three DiTerlizzi Masterwork Kobolds from Dark Sword Miniatures at the same time I bought this one. This seemed like the best way to tie together the very different old and modern designs into some sort of coherent whole – although I’m not sure when I’ll get around to painting the others.
