So the dozen Kobolds in the core set were not the next ones out of the gate even though they were mentioned as such last time. After fixing them with new bases, the bases needed some putty filler, which needed some time to dry,
Instead I did these three randoms:
#17 & 18 The Pig Cart:
Obviously at some point I have messed up the mini count, as I was not aware that this was in fact counted as two minis in the Core set graphic. I have been counting it as one all the time. At any rate there still are 12 kobolds, a croc, a gryphon, an owl bear, a wyvern and a dragon left, which leaves 17 minis to do after these three.
So Ser Francis here is pulling a cart full of autumnal produce such as pumpkins, apples and a large aubergine.
I made a 10cm x 6cm oval base for the whole thing. Also, this might be just the model for an “Ogre Red Goblin Blaster” in Kings of War. Basically it is a cart full of explosives that gets moved up under the nose of the enemy. The Red Goblin driver then has to light the fuse and get away. It also will go well with the TTcombat halflings when I get around to painting them.
#55: Dire Crab
The crabs in my local fjord are all small and black. Easy for kids to catch with a piece of shrimp attached to a clothes peg and some string, but far too small to eat, so they all go back in after beeing ewwed and arghed at. Actually most of them are about the size of this mini IRL.
I chose to not do the common yellow/orange food crab colours in favor of what are the colours of the far more exotic (for me) Blue Swimmer Crab found off the coasts of Australia.
#99 The Ettin:
or two headed giant if you will. I went with a not typically European skin colour to clash jarringly with the very typically European-looking shield on it’s belly, just to annoy those who have a problem with that sort of thing. They still only count as a single giant.
These are all quite large
You shall not pass!
#17 & #18, #55, #99
