I'd say HeroQuest.Es has a good Kobold grunt candidate in the Chaos Fury icon.

I found a GreatSlayer Beastman icon that might work for the Kobold Trickster:

But the trickster doesn't get a card, no? I always imagined that one to be a quest note guy like the Wizards of Morcar are. Sure I can include the symbol as Kobold Trickster in the Heroscribe HQ25 folder. |_P

For any Quest Note purposes, the two symbols in XXL

Also, how the Kobold monster card would look like with this symbol. I like the goblinesk symbol more, but that may be because the thought of a "reptilian Kobold" is entirely strange to me.

Here's the two variants from D&D and I point to, again, the vast availability of cheap miniatures for those which the entire proposition of the Kobold as a new low-key grunt monster was entirely based upon, if I recall correctly. Even the 2 DD, for example, I came up with because of these dragonscale shields...

Here's the Reaper Bones I'm talking about and one of the variants from the D&D board games that were also sold pre-painted as DDM collectibles. I'm talking cheap and available.

Yes those are definitely reptilian :-)

They are. What I mean by variants that the first art and the first mini picture depict the doglike features, the other variant is more traditionally lizard-like with scales and all.

The reptilian icon works best for D&D-styled miniatures, so that is likely the best fit for the Monster Card. Anderas, apologies for the debasing of German folklore by Gary Gygax. My hope is we can still find or make a suitable Kobold grunt image for the Monster Card that fits the expected minis and reptilian icon better.

The Gary Chalk image works for a Kobold Trickster, but you're right that that Monster shouldn't have a card or icon. Now a Trickster Spell Card with your colorized Chalk-Goblin will work great. After the Swamp spells, the Trickster spells got the most attention and votes. I proposed them as optional, but maybe the set deserves full inclusion. The Trickster spells are tailored for a reoccurring villain, a monster we want for the story arc.

Looking through some Talisman 1st Ed. art by Gary Chalk, I came across this candidate for grunt Kobold art. It's got an odd weapon. Too much?
