Noggin, part 1

Some guards/soldiers from the land of Nog. These minis are from a kickstarter by the Little Soldier Company. I tried to follow their color schemes as much as I could.

I have more miniatures from the kickstarters to paint in the coming weeks (I won't kid myself thaat it will only take days - ha ha).


  1. Excellent paint work on some very nice figures - they look just like the original drawings.

  2. Nogtastic work, I really enjoyed seeing them and look forward to seeing more...

  3. I confess that the only nog I am familiar with comes with rum but there are really few limits on my cultural ignorance these days, the main thing is that these look like cheerful, fun little figures. One gets the impression of sincere, not to say eager, but bumbling dutifulness and good cheer.

  4. Thanks gentlemen!

    I didn't grow up with Nog; only really learned of it in the last few years from blogs. But I couldn't resist the kickstarters and the whimsical figures.

    I'm pleased to hear they look like the original illustrations. Of course most of the credit goes to the sculptor/s! A simple paint job seemed to suit such figures.

    "impression of sincere, not to say eager, but bumbling dutifulness and good cheer." I think that's a great way to put it, Ross!

    Cheerful, whimsical, appeals to me. :)

  5. Lovely figures! I always think of Noggin the Nog in black and white but these look wonderful!
    Best Iain

    1. Thanks, Iain!
      I didn't grow up on Noggin. Didn't even know about it until the last few years. But the minis appealed to me, and I liked the colors their painted examples have, so that's where my inspiration came from.
